Background Info: This house is located in the Village of West Clay in Carmel. Even though it was built in 2004, it lacked the functionality and convenient features that a busy family needs in a custom, updated mudroom.
Common characteristics of intermediate spaces is that they are not used efficiently, which creates multi-purpose areas that become crowded and hard to maintain. The homeowners wanted to redefine their laundry room and mudroom into clean, functional and efficient areas that work together.
The goal was to design two separate areas that work together to create function and flow for this high traffic area. The newly updated laundry room offers fresh lines, easy to maintain granite counter tops, multiple built-in folding areas and a unique penny round mosaic porcelain tiled back splash. A bold, contrasting, sliding barn door provides a visual barrier between the two areas, while maximizing the usable space. This is the perfect solution for this clean, functional space.
The mudroom area was redesigned to specifically suit the family’s needs. Cabinet drawers were installed below, doubling as a bench. In the center, the family needed open cubbies with hooks for coats and bags. The closed cabinets above add a versatile storage option.
The wrong lighting in an updated space can ruin the feel. This newly installed drum pendant gives this laundry room a causal, yet modern feel by focusing the light upward, rather than downward.
The stacking washer and dryer freed up storage space on either side of the unit to add more cabinets and a working area.
The homeowners a wanted a fold-down, wall-mounted laundry drying rack. What a great way to maximize this space!
