Finding some inspiration for the laundry was a challenge. There are very few beautiful laundries out there. Perhaps beauty is not necessary. Light and functional is what I’m aiming for.
Our laundry is accessed via the scullery and will be the main thoroughfare from the kitchen to the rubbish bins. I will not iron in there, so the laundry will simply be for washing. Its notable feature will be a laundry chute. Hardly exciting. (Writing this makes me realise that I may have got a little carried away in my previous post about fancy tiles.)
Without further ado, here are my Top 5 Laundries for Inspiration:
And, oh dear, here is the display home laundry:
We have deleted some of the cabinetry to fit in our chest freezer. The grand plan is to add overhead cabinets ourselves to increase storage space and to integrate the laundry chute.
Here’s my conservative “mood board”
No fancy tiles at this stage, and I’ve restrained myself from the temptation of pendant lights too. There are better places to make a statement than the laundry and I should save my money for those places. (You may need to remind me of my wisdom later.) Despite loving a touch of wood, I’m nervous about using wood-look laminate, so I’ve intentionally left it out of the plan. Our wooden floors in the scullery won’t be far away and I can always add some real wooden shelving or accessories later if it needs it.
