It's finally finished! This basement laundry room got a MAJOR transformation and I am living for it. For a laundry room, it was a decent size, but it needed a LOT of work in terms of storage and updating finishes. Laundry rooms and other utility spaces like mudrooms are often overlooked. We wanted to create a space that was not only functional, but a space that would elevate the client's everyday life by creating functional storage and being intentional with choosing the right colours, materials, and fixtures that aligned with our vision of a calm and serene space.
Okay. This room was a laundry room that basically also doubled as a storage room. Right when you walk in, you can't help but feel overwhelmed and you just want to get out of there as fast as you can.
There were a lot of open shelves and products were everywhere. Nothing really had its own place.
Renovations are a really great time to KonMari your home. Get rid of all the things you haven't used in years, donate the things you don't need, and then thoughtfully organize the remainder of your belongings.
The intent was to create a relaxing space by using soft, calming colours. Soft whites, greys, blues and using warm brass accents to brighten and liven up the room.
It was a very long journey, but I really think the final results stayed true to our vision and I couldn't be happier! We divided the room and created a separate storage room in the back to put all the big things like vacuums, luggage and boxes. The cabinets, apart from looking amazing, hides all the detergent, back up products and anything else that used to be laying around on the shelves.
On the opposite wall, we included wall to ceiling cabinets that provide extra storage.
The rod above the sink is perfect for hanging clothes to dry and by building millwork to surround the machines, the countertop above is a perfect place to fold clothes.
