Labour of love
26 It’s hard to believe this bright and spacious laundry in Launceston was once a poky bathroom at the end of a gloomy corridor. An efficient galley layout accommodates integrated appliances and oodles of storage for linen and laundry essentials, while the new glass-panelled back door draws in natural light. The finishes are easy-care: Laminex cabinetry in eye-catching Dulux Submerge, an Essastone benchtop and Tasmanian oak for the open shelves and a handy bench seat. Direct access to the garden means the laundry can double as a mudroom – a bonus for the owners, Shane and Lydia, who have a young child.
