General Contractors
BY HARDROCK CONSTRUCTION traditional-laundry-room


Quartzite natural stone floors were laid to bring an updated flare to this century homes entry/mudroom/laundry back porch.
Original windows were maintained and beadboard added. A salvaged double cast iron sink was installed in a sturdy cabinet that provides excellent needed storage. An upper cabinet was rescued from the basement and had new crown moulding and light rail added. The beautiful ceiling is original to the home.

We found the sink at Habitat for Humanity's restore in Toronto for $85.00 and although the cast iron finish is not as shiny in the bowls it was in perfect condition otherwise.

like Sandra said, that tile looks more like slate than quartzite, although I could be wrong. Something like this - http://tiledaily.com/2012/01/04/colors-of-fall-slate/
Yes on all points Sandra mentioned. They do have a great look, but shaling will occur with slate, and will take some time to completely settle. It does offer a great natural looking floor however.

For the record we purchased the quatzite from Home Depot on sale for $1.99 a square foot not from Northern Stone Supply as they have mentioned above. Also I said that it has a roughness or unevenness like slate without the shale edges, not, that it looks like slate as Benjiik has mentioned. It looks nothing like slate.
I'd never seen anything like it before and loved the fact that each tile is a different colour of cream, beige, light greens, amazing turquoise, rusts instead of all those colours mixed in altogether in one tile as slate may be.
Interestingly I recently viewed Quartzite slabs in a warehouse for a kitchen counter as well which are also beautiful.
Hope that clarifies futher for anyone interested in quartzite.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Shabby Nest added this to Laundry Rooms That Put the Fun in Functional
Help your laundry area feel like a part of the house by adding unique touches. This laundry boasts a beadboard ceiling and exposed brick. (Not to mention beautiful windows and floors.) What have you done to make your laundry room more fun?
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to 8 Ways to Love Trough Sinks
Whether it's a laundry room, mudroom or both, there's something so Old World and functional about the trough sink being used in such a utilitarian, high-traffic space.
Becky Harris added this to Consider a Salvaged Sink
A salvaged cast-iron double sink is a great fit for this utilitarian laundry room. Now, I feel compelled to share the flip side of using a salvaged sink: in addition to the drawbacks Dona Rosene outlined, there can be challenges for everyone involved in the installation process. Be sure to be extra nice to your architect, contractor and plumber when pushing for one. When I wanted to know more about using these, I called my brother Clark (a general contractor) to see if he had experience with these (he did not). After he finished telling me how many of his clients are using Houzz, he said "Oh no, I hope none of them read this salvage sink story and want me to do that for them. It sounds like a total nightmare."More:Console Sinks for a Vintage Style Bath10 Vintage Touches for Your BathroomYour Kitchen: Farmhouse SinksKitchen of the Week: A Warm and Eco-Friendly Update

last Monday
This makes me wonder if it would be an idea to make the laundry in the front "conservatory" area. Then dirty clothes could go straight in the wash, plus you would have a sink at which to wash dirty hands in when coming inside. Hmm...also a very light filled laundry area close to the kitchen....
