Hi Mott21- The countertop over the washer and dryer was custom made of Engineered Quartz Stone (I believe we used Caesarstone's Buttermilk) and it was fabricated & installed by the same company that fabricated and installed the black stone countertops.
However, If you wanted to copy the look without the high price, you could order a post-form laminate top in a similar color from one of the big-box stores, and it would probably cost you somewhere around $300-$500. (See the photos, attached below.)
Good luck on your project-

Hi Gayle, thanks for your question.
This 11' wide x 14' long laundry room is part of a newly constructed home in Southern California. After framing, we discovered that the architect had "adjusted" the width of the room down about a foot from the original 12' width without mentioning the change to the client. The original plan was to have cabinets on both walls and this table "island" in the middle, and this plan became challenging in the newly sized room.
We solved the problem by rearranging the appliances and by reducing the depth of the custom cabinetry. The original plan had the washer & dryer located in the center of the back wall, but it was clear that there would not be enough room for the central island if we kept them there. So we left the island in the middle, and we moved the washer & dryer to the far corner of the room. (The photo is a bit foreshortened; in real life the island table starts a good 12" or so past the washer & dryer.)
We then reduced the cabinets on the opposite wall (not visible in this photo). In the center of the room the base cabs are 15" deep at the bottom and 12" deep at the top; in the edges of the room (where, again, there's no island in the middle), the cabs are 18" deep.
In regard to sourcing, I'm afraid I can't be much help; the cabinets, as mentioned above, were custom made locally, and the central table belonged to the client. I would think, however, that you could find something similar in one of the catalog stores, such as Pottery Barn, Ballard Designs, and Frontgate.
Good luck!

Where are the water shut off valves of the washer in the cabinet?

This is a great question. As designers we KNOW that certain practical things are necessary (such as shut-off valves) but it's always a problem when builders put them in the backsplash. Moreover, we often find them at an awkward height, where they are half under the countertop and half above it. If there were a way to make the valves more attractive, it would help, but I have yet to find a plumbing manufacturer with attractive shut-off valves. (Hint, hint...if anyone reading this has found something better looking, I would love to hear about it, with photos attached, preferably...) Since the only users of this room are the homeowners (or their housekeeper), there was no reason not to "hide" the shut-off valves in a hidden location. In this case we put them in the back of the base cabinet just to the left of the appliances.

I'm sorry, I no longer have the specification on this room. Try my associate Tina Kuhlmann (also on Houzz.com). I designed the cabinetry but she was the main designer on this project, and she may be able to help you,

Actually, I think the design is perfect if only that nice table were removed. Personally I prefer lower washer/dryers for better counter space working area. Then, this room would be perfect for me. Thanks.

#Mypad2013- these models are the same depth as most washer/dryers, and you're right, it can be really tough to incorporate an appliance with a depth of 30-36" in a typical laundry room. In this case, we made them appear smaller by recessing them into the wall behind. It also helps to "recess" them into the cabinetry by building a cabinet surround and adding a countertop over the top.

Thanks for the response, your trick of recessing them in the rear wall is genius.

If all of your bedrooms are located on the second floor with the laundry room it can be very convenient. While if the bedrooms are on the bottom floor, and you have to carry clothes up and down stairs it can be a hassle.

Another con is the vibration over the rooms below can be loud and disruptive, depending on what rooms they serve.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Shabby Nest added this to Laundry Rooms That Put the Fun in Functional
A pretty table makes a nice, functional addition to a laundry room. And it's a great multi-tasker. Think beyond just doing laundry...a table like this one is a great place to fold clothes, but it can also be a nice spot for wrapping a gift!
Buckminster Green LLC added this to Contractor Tips: Wise Advice for Laundry Room Design
The closer your laundry room is to the rest of your house, the more sound will be an issue. If you are building the room from scratch, install batt insulation in the walls to reduce noise. These are heavy appliances that move around a lot. If the laundry is going to be on an upper floor, the floor joists should be reinforced to handle the load. Stiffening the floor will also reduce noise from rattling objects nearby.
