Re-Imagining the Laundry Room
The washer and dryer were located at the back of the powder/laundry room, in a hard-to-access location behind broken bi-fold doors. The initial goal was to demo the soffit at the entry to the powder/laundry and continue the angle across the entire ceiling plan. After removing the drywall, we discovered that removing the soffit would be a challenging and costly task. To minimize cost, the angled ceiling was dropped to the height of the existing soffit, creating a consistent ceiling plane in the space.
The closet that housed the washer and dryer was removed, creating an easy-to-access space for laundry appliances in the newly remodeled space. When not in use, retractable cabinet doors with a mesh insert hide the appliances from view. The wood countertop provides a convenient surface for sorting and folding laundry. A neutral, light palette brightens this formerly dark space. The textured ceramic floor tile provides a durable, non-slip surface for wet feet after a dip in the pool.
