10 Smart Ideas for Your Laundry Room Remodel

Thanks to John Whipple for some important comments. We live in a contemporary 1974 house, and although its overall design is still very much in today's style of living, we discovered that the 1974 plumbing is not big enough to handle a direct connection to the washing machine and would be very expensive and disruptive to replace. As a result, we can't eliminate the large laundry tub that handles the water discharge and are currently looking for something in stainless steel that is easier to clean than the existing acrylic (?) model. If you live in a pre 80's house, make sure your plumbing can handle a direct water discharge while planning your remodel. Also, we discovered that our existing laundry chute is considered a fire hazard and we boarded it up; I'm surprised that they are still being made. I still use my top loading washer; it runs perfectly after 13 years, so my initial interest in moving to a more "fashionable" front load look in the laundry room has waned considerably. Do your technical homework before remodeling a wet area that requires certain safety standards in plumbing, electrical, and floor surfaces.

My stove is more of a fire hazard than my laundry chute. People can go overboard worrying about every safety hazard in life.

Several design and architechural feautures struck me with this amazing home. It is so warm and inviting with the style and colors. The headboard for the master bed with the surrounding windows is really unique and I was definately drawn to it. Great use of space and I try to imagine how I could incorporate some of the ideas in my own home!!!
