As the first stop in the house when entering from the garage, it was important for the mudroom to contain sufficient storage for shoes, backpacks, and coats, while still maintaining the space's main purpose of being a laundry room. The clients requested a small bench, in order to provide a spot to easily put on or take off one's shoes. This helped provide optimal storage beneath the bench to help contain shoes or backpacks. The perfectly spaced hooks above help contain coats and jackets, while the upper cabinets can hide off-season accessories, such as hats and gloves.
With strategic pullouts, typically used in kitchen pantries, our team helped provide easily accessible laundry storage. While the chevron tile and quartz topped bench add a perfect dash of fun, the homeowner's favorite detail is the barn door that closes off the space.
As for the powder room, while the transformation is massive, the construction was a simple pull and replace. A fresh coat of paint, a durable floor, and sleek vanity help the space feel larger and brighter. The accents help add a clean contemporary aesthetic.
Before: The burnt orange walls made the room feel tight and dark. There was an old oak vanity, with a seashell shaped sink. The floors were a standard square tile.
After: The walls are painted white. A contemporary black vanity has replaced the old one, topped with a quartz remnant and a square shaped sink. The accessories in the bathroom, such as the towel ring, toilet paper holder, and faucet are all in a matte black finish.
Before: A washer and dryer stood side-by-side next to a sink. The upper oak cabinets made the room feel heavy and narrow. All coats had to be stored on the opposite wall.
After: A stackable washer and dryer help open up the space, along with the white storage cabinets on either side of it. A cubby-bench sits next to the washer and dryer as the perfect drop zone for shoes, coats, and backpacks. The herringbone tile helps add a pop of fun to the space.
