Laundry Room Cabinetry Custom Fitted Around Basement Pipes and Pillars Yields a High Function, Yet Eco-friendly Laundry Room Design
Custom Laundry Room Storage Creates a Bright and Cheery Basement Utility Room
Whoever gave basement laundry rooms the reputation for being dark and dreary caves didn't see this one! The narrow, but efficient, L-shaped design lacks windows, but still manages to be bright and cheery. The white on white design evokes a sense of cleanliness appropriate for a laundry area, while reflecting as much light as possible. The white laminate, noted for the environmental friendliness of its components, was used in conjuction with an LED lighting system to keep the space as light as possible. Simple oil rubbed bronze hardware in an almost black finish completes the look. Modern, slab style door and drawer fronts complete the streamlined look and blend with the contemporary décor used throughout the home.
At first glance, the modern storage seems straightforward and uncomplicated, but in actuality, it is any thing but simple. The tall, narrow cabinet between the washers and drayers sits in front of a load bearing basement post that supports the floor above it. The cabinet provides storage for detergent, fabric softener and other laundry aides, while disguising the support structure. The cabinet is designed to be removable in the event that access to the post is ever needed. Furthermore, the laundry cabinets and drawers surrounding the sink area also used to hide basement pipes while providing storage. The owner preferred drawer storage over a more traditional cabinet under the sink area. This required the installation of custom cutouts in all three drawers in order to bypass the pipes under the sink.
