Bright and airy whole house remodel

We wanted to accommodate and reflect the homeowner's lifestyle and the house’s style but get rid of the out-dated suburban lay-out while enlarging the true living space, psychologically & physically, within the existing space & budget. The owners originally considered an addition, and when the designer proposed that the two young, active Nike employees sacrifice the seldom used formal dining to the solution, they were quick to see they could “just do it”!

Hi there. I was the designer on the project. Actually, the faucet was the client's and reused (formerly in the kitchen before it was remodeled). Recycle, recycle:) Sorry I can't help further.

Hi, 214176 (catchy name) - I was the designer on this job. The counter is an HPL (high pressure laminate) with beveled edge and same on the 4"h backsplash. The beveled edge always gives the illusion of a solid surface material, not showing the tell-tale black line of the backer in a squared "flat lay" application. I believe it was a WilsonArt or Formica as manufacturer. Both are excellent lines, they change offerings each year so best to see the latest & greatest selection of each at your local counter fabricator. Never underestimate the potential of laminates - great variety, price & easy care.

Rhonda Knoche Design
Hello, mlscott40! Just noticed your question on this. I'm Rhonda, the designer who did this job. In this case, I just allowed 61" for the 60" washer/dryer. This allows 1/3" between wall, washer, dryer & sink cabinet to get in & out & for slight movement during use. It is GREATLY dependent on the maker/model, hinge, handle, etc. so be careful in your planning and check specifications and existing conditions carefully.

Hi, I was the designer on that job. While this was custom made hanging/drying rack, a similar end result could be done by using a metal rod and suspending with wire cable. There are also a number of ready-made rods and racks that flip up out of the way. See on-line sources. Hope that helps with some creative ideas.

Hi, vlong. The floor is a Marmoleum-like product, essentially a linoleum base and pre-cut in squares. Warm & soft under foot.

Good eye. It takes more skill & effort to do the clean, disappearing act. (Notice any supply lines, shut off valves, dryer ducts...as usual?)

Hi, sorry I just noticed this older question (I was the designer on the job years ago). The flooring is a vinyl Composition Tile/VCT – “Azrock” / Iceberg #V-609 & Cloudburst #V-786 - equal checkers – 12” X 12”. Somewhat similar to Marmoleum. It's a great fresh look., isn't it? Not ideal for every application, however. Hope that helps.

Hi Rhonda, would you recommend this flooring for most laundry rooms? Is it waterproof or just water-resistant?

It's really hard to tell at this angle, especially with the wide angle lens on the photo. They look like they must be under counter though.

Is the white the "white marble" t2607 color? The marmoleum sample I have looks more yellow than that.

The client wanted the laundry room to feel "soap" like.
They choose Devine Blue for the paint.
