Stunning laundry room, mud room & dog shower

Moving the washer/dryer out of the kitchen into their own space was not a difficult decision. Meeting all of the programmatic requirements of this new room was a little trickier. Designing enough room to be able to wash the dogs and water houseplants, as well as folding laundry in a small space was solved by providing a removable countertop. When the counter is needed, the two pieces easily slide in place and they are pulled out of the way when the water is needed. When the dogs get a shower, the handspray works best, but for the plants the swing-arm potfiller serves optimally. The client had been saving these 19th century English transferware tiles for just such a project. The mahogany countertop, antique drying rack, windows and built-ins, and exquisite tile work make this a stunning room to do your laundry.

Dog Bath - Lovely laundry room. I have Googled dog bath dimensions & haven't come up with anything consistent. May I ask your dimensions? This photo has inspired me to make a change in our plans! Thank you- Ann in Southern California

This dog shower is 25 inches deep, 32 inches wide with the front shelf at 20 inches high. The back wall is 36 inches high. If you look closely you can also see a lip below the main shelf level - this allows the owner to put in some additional shelves (these happen to be mahogany) to extend the counter space when the shower isn't in use. This shower also serves to water house plants. Good luck with your project!

While I have no idea where the homeowner got this one, these racks, which lift up or can be laid flat against the wall when not in use, and fan out like you see in this photo when raised, are very common vintage pieces that can be found pretty easily in rural antique mall type places, probably also on eBay. You just have to go trolling antique malls and keep your eyes open for one - hunting for it is part of the fun. And actually, I think Cracker Barrel, of all places, has repros - they have started carrying reproduction fireking-jadeite kitchen ware, made by the original manufacturer, Anchor-Hocking. Sorry for the little off-topic digression there!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to Get More From a Multipurpose Laundry Room
Pet area. This laundry space incorporates a custom dog shower, handy if you have the square footage. But you don't have to be that fancy. Just add a comfy dog bed, litter box or other designated area for your furry family members.

I like being able to hang items above the dog wash. I do fabric dyeing and other crafts that will use this tub space. Like to have it he bottom of the tub raised about 2 1/2 feet. Spray nozzle and faucet feature. Will probably need a removable ramp or step for the dogs to enter.
