Kitchen Update’s fabulously functional laundries
The laundry is a functional room but that doesn’t mean it can’t also be a visually pleasing space in which to work. New technologies and products coupled with clever design means your laundry can be beautifully organised, laid out with practicality in mind and match the aesthetics of your home and lifestyle. Your laundry can be combined as part of a kitchen or bathroom, or as a stand-alone room. Depending on the size of your family and your needs, there are hundreds of smart design solutions to incorporate all the areas and items you need – including the laundry sink! Your designer will look for ways plumbing can be integrated into the cabinetry so it’s hidden from sight plus incorporate plenty of bench space for sorting and folding of clean washing. Washers and dryers can be stacked, and hidden behind sliding or bi-fold doors, while laundry powders and other often-used items can be stored close to hand.
