Laundry renovations are not rooms people give much attention to. It is a utility room and what more does it need to be. Having said that if a workplace is not efficient and the room is not welcoming, it gets out of control quickly and spending time in there is a chore as much as the laundry itself.
We are taking the basic contractor space and updating it for better storage, cleaner look and making it more welcoming. The room itself is an odd shape, however, it can be made to work.
In the photos above no consideration was given to storage. The room was blank. A storage shelf behind the washer and dryer adds some storage. A better plan is needed.
What the room needs are storage, color, and style. We want to keep the renovation budget friendly. Our renovation needs to flow with the theme of the house. The laundry room is in our Craftsman home. The budget may seem high. To offset this all of the cabinetry work we fabricate them in our shop. The other benefit, custom making our storage cabinet allows us to fit the space better. Off the shelf, storage cabinets can be used and will function just the same. If you’re looking for style choices, they are limited. We will be replacing the shelf with a slightly longer and deeper one, adding a cabinet above, and updating the color.(more…)
