BE­FORE

When we moved into our new house, the laun­dry was dated and in need of more stor­age and bench space. The room was quite de­press­ing to be in.

THE BRIEF

More stor­age (in­clud­ing some open shelv­ing) and bench space, new ap­pli­ances, and colour for a bit of fun while car­ry­ing out a bor­ing task. I wanted the ap­pli­ances to be un­der the bench to cre­ate a more stream­lined look and more bench space.

HOW LONG DID THE PRO­JECT TAKE?

Two months.

HOW DID YOU DE­CIDE ON YOUR PAL­ETTE AND MA­TE­RI­ALS?

I worked back­wards from the flo­ral wall­pa­per

I’d set my heart on. As it was very busy and colour­ful, I wanted neu­tral cab­i­netry. I kept the ex­ist­ing char­coal floor tiles which were in great con­di­tion. I chose clear glass for the splash­back in or­der to pro­tect the wall­pa­per.

WHAT BENCH­TOP DID YOU CHOOSE?

A Cae­sar­stone bench­top for dura­bil­ity, aes­thet­ics and qual­ity.
