Labour of love

Australian House & Garden - - TOP 50 ROOMS -

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.
