Kenwood Estates Home Tour: Laundry+ Mudroom
If you're new here, it's important to say that KCID cares A LOT about functional spaces. While we may make the biggest impact in kitchens and primary suites, utilitarian spaces like the laundry and mudroom can still pack some major punch. Take a look at how we made these spaces work so well for our family.
You wouldn't believe it, but the before picture to the right became our new mudroom! The best decision we made for our client was to relocate the laundry to second level. This small change, will maximize how our client's live with ease and convenience. Not to mention, this tiny space was hardly enough room to really utilize this laundry room. Once the laundry was relocated, we used every square inch of this small space, but tearing down the walls and doors that made it a closet, and designing function based cabinets that provide a space to take off boots, but also as a secondary desk space for mom.
KCID INSIDER: This wallpaper is chalk board paper and can be an amazing way to leave reminders before rushing out the door. Find yours here!
When the clients bought this house, this strange closet like room with a small window sat at the landing. They originally considered putting the treadmill here, but it was obviously the best place for the laundry room to be relocated. To maximize storage and functionality, we designed full height cabinets that could stand the test of time and provide as much hidden storage as necessary. A solid barn door helps to shutout some of that dryer noise in the hallways, but overall this space is worth it's weight.
Tell us what you look for in a laundry and mudroom! Could you care less what those rooms look like or do you prefer that it go with the aesthetic of your home. You probably can tell by now that over here, we like appreciate all of the aesthetic moments throughout a home. Especially when they're this functional!
