A bright or­ga­nized space keeps laun­dry in check for a cou­ple of fre­quent trav­ellers

“WE WANTED TO MAKE IT FUN AND INVIT­ING, WHILE ALSO BUILD­ING IN LOTS OF FUNC­TION AND STOR­AGE.”

1 LO­CA­TION, LO­CA­TION

The 100-square-foot laun­dry room is lo­cated on the main level of this Stein­bach, Man., home. It’s right at the back en­trance, which the home­own­ers use ev­ery day. Since the kitchen is ad­ja­cent, the cab­i­netry and coun­ter­top styles and ma­te­ri­als are iden­ti­cal in the two spa­ces. 2 CLOUD COVER The dra­matic wall­pa­per “brings pat­tern, drama and a touch of fun” to the hard­work­ing room, says de­signer Ja­clyn Peters. “We wanted to make the space play­ful and invit­ing, while also build­ing in lots of func­tion and stor­age.”

3 CONTAINED CHAOS

To cre­ate or­der, plenty of built-in cab­i­nets store clean­ing essentials and other house­hold sup­plies. A small util­ity sink is a use­ful ad­di­tion for tasks like hand­wash­ing del­i­cates and re­mov­ing tough stains.

4 TOP SHELF

Float­ing wooden shelves dis­play canisters and bas­kets, adding more stor­age as well as warmth and tex­ture to the pre­dom­i­nantly grey, black and white room.

5 BRIGHTER DAYS

Re­in­forc­ing the room’s bright clean vibe, a white washer and dryer set looks seam­less against the white cab­i­netry.
