Your laundry room can be both pretty and functional when you consider these smart design tips from other homeowners.
Combine wide and narrow storage.
The laundry room cabinets in this space needed to maximize long-term storage but maintain counter space for workaday tasks. To do that, the homeowners installed a narrow shelf a few inches above the countertop, using turned shelf supports to add classic details to the space. Hooks add even more quick-use storage.
Make an unexpected turn.
The natural inclination in this sort of laundry room would be to place the appliances under the windows. But these homeowners gained much more storage and work space by shifting that by a half turn, placing a long work counter under the window, with laundry room cabinets and a shelf above the washer-dryer combo. Think about narrow areas differently to gain more laundry options: a pull-down drying rack saves space by folding up when not in use.
