Background Info: These homeowners reside in the Geist-area Anchorage neighborhood in Fishers. They knew they wanted to update their laundry and adjacent powder bath spaces, but did not really know where to start. The previous laundry room did not inspire the already tedious task of laundry for this busy family. The builder-grade cabinetry and outdated laminate flooring needed a fresh update in aesthetics and functionality.
With the powder bath in proximity to the laundry room, the homeowners’ wanted the two spaces to coordinate, and update the outdated finishes to reflect their style.
The goal for these areas was to improve functionality, update the aesthetics to the homeowners’ preferred style, and strategically design the aesthetics to feel continuous throughout both spaces. The washer and dryer appliances were stacked, creating more space for functional storage and work space. New cabinets and granite countertops were designed to maximize functionality.
A small drop-zone for shoes, coats, and bags was incorporated into the design as well. The new painted shiplap on the walls provides durability.
One of the cabinets even doubles as a trash can and a clothes hamper.
In the adjacent powder bath, a new vanity, champagne bronze plumbing fixtures, and a mesmerizing light fixture add a beautiful elegance to that space. The new cabinetry stain color in the powder bath matches the color in the laundry room. For an added aesthetic that ties into other elements in the home, a reclaimed wood accent wall was installed, and stained to coordinate with both the new cabinet color and the existing floor.
