Our Interior Designer Angela from Interior Solutions Brisbane is joining us this week with some handy tips on designing a multi functioning laundry space. If you are planning on designing your laundry any time soon, then these tips are essential.
Designing a multi-function Laundry Space
Two projects I’m currently working on involve the redesign of the laundry space to create a multi functioning space. In the past laundries were given a dedicated space within the home, often these spaces were uninviting, large dark rooms with direct access to the exterior of the home, which make ideal Laundry/Mudrooms or Laundry/Bathrooms.
When designing a combined Laundry/Mudroom or Laundry/Bathroom I tend not to merge the 2 areas as one but give each area their own identity within the room.

In this design I’m using the same cabinetry but the mudroom locker bay will have painted VJ boards on the back wall, with bag hooks & upholstered seat cushion in a grey & white striped outdoor fabric.
Laundry/Bathroom Design under construction
In this design the brief was to reduce the size of the laundry area & increase the bathroom size. In this space I will be using a wallpaper from Thibaut called Laudrette on the back wall behind the washing machine & white floating shelves. A bench top will run along the top of the washing machine & a drying rack positioned above. An Indoor/Outdoor rug from Dash & Albert will be used to co-ordinate with the wallpaper & to add texture & colour. Vanity cabinet will be white gloss & matching benchtop, wall tiles will be white gloss subway with a white floor tile.
Hopefully these ideas will give you inspiration for your own projects. Have fun as always, Angela x
