Clever plan­ning turns a cup­board into a chic Eu­ro­pean laun­dry.

Country Style - - DEC­O­RAT­ING -

Once dom­i­nat­ing the bath­room in this south-west Mel­bourne home (see pre­vi­ous page), Terri in­stead tucked the laun­dry away be­hind bi-fold doors, cre­at­ing a seam­less, non-in­tru­sive space. “The spa­tial plan­ning be­fore just wasn’t right — it wasn’t func­tional,” she says. “Now it has all the bench­marks of a good laun­dry — stor­age, bench space, room for a washer/dryer, room for wash­ing pow­ders, and the abil­ity to put the wash­ing bas­ket in­side and shut the door.” Ad­di­tional fea­tures, such as a pull-out drawer for dirty wash­ing and join­ery fin­ished in Du­lux ‘Grand Pi­ano’, make it fash­ion­able, too.
