When you think about cabinetry, you might think of kitchens and bathrooms. After all, those two are essential rooms in a home where cabinets anchor the space and function.
However, there are two other big everyday-use areas that benefit from well-planned cabinetry: mudrooms and laundry rooms.
After people renovate or build a house, the mudroom and laundry room are often places where they wish they did more. And there’s a good reason for that. They’re used just about every day, and good form and function can make a big lifestyle difference.
Below are elements to think about when planning your laundry and mudroom spaces. (Tip: These can be great add-on projects when doing a kitchen remodel so you can create a cohesive look, too.)
Mudrooms are often the entryway into your home. They serve as a space for storage, while also setting a tone as people enter the house.
Modern mudrooms usually include lockers and cabinets or bench-type storage, as a way to blend function with style. Any size mudroom can benefit from adding these elements because they are as aesthetically appealing as they are practical.
Gone are the days of tripping over items left out on the floor! Here’s an example of a Mariotti mudroom project that demonstrates these ideas:
2. Laundry Rooms
Even if laundry isn’t your favorite chore, it becomes a lot easier if you have a laundry room that works for you. If you think about and plan out a purposeful space, it will save you time and hassle down the road.
Oftentimes our clients will add:
- extra cabinets for storage
- built-in drying racks
- bars to hang items
- flat countertops for folding and/or storage
By giving these elements some forethought, you can design a laundry room that works for your family.
Here’s an example of a Mariotti laundry room project with a bar that doubles as a place to hang things and a decoration, that ties in with the faucet and compliments the cabinet hardware, tile, and distressed cabinet finish.
