3 Design Ideas for a More Enjoyable Laundry Room

In this episode of Houzz TV Live, US editor Mitchell Parker discusses three design ideas from pros on Houzz that can make a laundry room a little more enjoyable place to be. A furniture-style workbench is good for folding laundry but also supports other household tasks, such as wrapping gifts, arranging flowers and fixing a small appliance. A painted brick floor creates an unexpected element. And a window provides natural light, fresh air and a view.

You have forgotten the most important design requirement for a laundry area. The washing machine must be place with a surround basin of a drain system as is common in European homes. The basin has a drain and surround ceramic tile curb so that any leak is automatically able to be drain. The current approach in the USA is a plastic tub which has a very limited capacity. We have built new 4 homes from the ground up and used this approach.

Whilst not being brick our laundry room floor is concrete and by just painting it bright turquoise has mad such a huge difference
