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.
