Hidden Laundry Room
This home's long hallway becomes a functional area with practical design and streamlined style.
The transformation began with the closet that holds a stackable washer/dryer. In its previous life, the closet was the kitchen pantry. "We turned the door around so it faced the hall," Bridget explains. A pull-out shelf in the center of the appliance makes fast work of folding clothes. Then, Trinity installed a custom cabinet, painted a glossy white, next to the closet. It features three pull-out hampers and ample storage space for linens and detergent.
In the end, it's a convenient, light-filled space where function is disguised with style.
Efficient design and a little construction turned this long hallway into a full-service laundry zone. Three lower cabinet doors pull open to reveal plastic-coated wire hampers. The open-sided bins allow soiled clothes and damp towels to breathe which prevents mildew between wash loads.
