This is our laundry mud room layout now. The door from the garage opens into this mess.
This is my first take on a new layout to add more storage and function to the room.
After consulting a contractor specializing in custom cabinetry, I've re-arranged the layout a bit to maximize the storage space.
I also made a major decision to go with Ikea's White ADEL cabinets! I've seen how wonderful a big-box store cabinets could turn out given the right design from many interior design shows on HGTV, and now I finally get to venture it!
Here's a portfolio of our new laundry room elements.
From top-left corner clock-wise:
- 3-hole SS kitchen sink from Rona (a SS kitchen sink is way cheaper than a laundry sink if you don't need a very deep one);
- Moen Quinn Chrome High-Arc Faucet;
- Ikea Salong and Persika Vases;
- Ikea ADEL White Shaker-style Cabinets;
- Martha Stewart Living Fabric Drawers from Home Depot;
- Formica Smoke Quarstone Countertop in Radiance Finish;
- Fractured Earth Series Glass Mosaic Tiles Backsplash from Tile Showroom;
- Tension Rod.
This is what a typical Ikea ADEL White kitchen looks like.
To take everything apart and install all the cabinets and plumbing will take a whole day. To purchase all the components including to have the countertop custom made will take about two weeks. Therefore, I should be able to reveal what our new laundry room looks like (and how well it functions) in just over two weeks.
