Dog Friendly RemodelTransitional Laundry Room, DC Metro
What Houzz contributors are saying:
After: Working with Leroy Johnson of design-build firm Four Brothers, the couple transformed the side entry into an organized dog washing, drying and sleeping area. Built-in perimeter cherry cabinets and a new laundry area (not seen here) also make it easy to wash muddy towels and store clean ones. The team was sure to incorporate the needs of the dogs, including custom dog bunk beds that can be easily pushed open by the dogs from inside. (The dogs, who were 3 years old at the time of construction, could easily jump onto the top bunk.) A teak step makes it easier for the dogs to get in and out of the shower, and it provides a spot for someone to kneel while washing them.See more of this renovation
Groom the pets. Some mothers are also mothers to pets. And some are just mothers to pets and not kids. Give the dog a bath, brush the cat, clean the litter box or take the pets to the groomer.
A mosaic tile shower pan allowed a sloping design for drainage, and Johnson carried the material to the rest of the shower. A teak bench lets the dogs get into and out of the hard tile pan more easily and provides a place where someone can kneel while washing the dogs. The ledge is quartz.The Pumpellys’ son, Stuart, who is a project manager at Four Brothers, is shown here.
