What Houzz contributors are saying:
Image by Hcreations Photography6. Designer and commentator: Maria Cerne, interior designer at Studio Black InteriorsLocation: Canberra, ACTSet-up: A laundry that extends off the kitchen in a family home. “I specified a glass laundry door – it’s a great way to boost natural light and make the space feel bright and open.”“I took the laundry beyond a purely functional space by adding in shelving to display indoor plants, baskets and towels.”“Warm timber and marble-look chevron tiles add a luxe feel to an otherwise utilitarian space.”
2. Opt for more closed overhead cupboards and fewer open shelvesMost of the items you store in a laundry, such as cleaning products, are ones that you’d want to conceal rather than leave out on show. As such, it makes sense to have more closed cupboards than open shelves in a laundry. I’d also recommend including plenty of overhead cupboards, as this is generally where you’ll store most items. Plus, a decent-sized tall cabinet to accomodate awkward items such as mops, brooms and the ironing board. To add interest to a laundry scheme, you may wish to include some open shelving for display – but it’s best to keep it small so it doesn’t compromise your overall laundry storage requirements.
