THE LAYOUT Wall space does not go to waste in this multifunctional laundry, where a shallow cupboard cleverly hides an ironing board that can be opened in one swift movement. On the other side, high shelves and a stylish tray neatly store and display laundry paraphernalia like pegs, detergent and scrubbing brushes. Efficient space-saving appliances and integrated cabinetry with pull-out functionality hide mess when the room is not in use. FINISHES Natural materials and textures are the stars here, from timber cabinetry and pared-back tiling to wicker storage baskets. A large louvred window lets in lots of natural light and provides ventilation. TRY THIS AT HOME Look for smart ways to make use of wall and undercabinet space, and maximise storage with baskets and trays.
