...there is only one semi-mistake I can see straight up... that is.... the work lights are more upon the ceiling.. and not upon the underside of the cabinets... which may get a little 'shady' over time... yet the tiles are functional and work quite nicely. - i just think two accent panels (narrow ones.... to the left behind the racks...) could be pretty sweet....

Hi, these are the recycling bins that are made to fit IKEA kitchen cabinets.

2. Small and SuperDesigner: Emma Doucet of Grassroots Design+Build Location: Ottawa, Ontario, CanadaSize: 168 square feet (15.6 square meters); 4 by 12 feet (1.2 by 3.6 meters)Homeowners’ request: A quick, smart renovation to simplify life and turn a messy, deep hallway closet into a new laundry space near a new walk-in closet. That way someone “could go from closet to laundry in two steps,” designer Emma Doucet says. Special features: Tile backsplash that looks like wallpaper. Pullout recycling-style bins for sorting whites, colors, linens and delicates. Counter for folding. Metal shelf that can also be used for hanging clothes to dry. Designer secret: “Every bit of space in a small home can work to make your life easier,” Doucet says. “Turning a hallway into a laundry room made [the] house work better, and increased its value because the basement is more usable.”“Uh-oh” moment: “We had measured the space upstairs and had told the client to order a regular-sized washer and dryer,” Doucet says. “We somehow, however, were off by 2 inches to get them up the stairs. After turning the delivery guys away, we had to redesign the space to fit European-size appliances. We were very lucky the client was good-natured about it. Goes to show that no matter how many times you do this, you always have to check measurements twice.”Also on the team: JVL Photo (photographer)Cabinets and metal shelf: Ikea; countertop: The Wood Source; tile: Euro Tile; wood shelf: custom, Chris TurcotteFind fun backsplash for your laundry room remodel

3. Pullout hampers. This kind of cabinetry works just like a trash-recycle pullout cabinet, but with hampers for sorting clothes rather than garbage.

2. Pack it in. A tile backsplash that looks like wallpaper, pullout recycling bins for sorting clothes, a countertop for folding, and a metal shelf for hanging clothes to dry give this 4-by-12-foot room a lot of function.

2. Pullout hamper. If you carry a load of dirty clothes to the laundry but don’t have time to run a load, a pullout hamper can be an ideal storage spot. This kind of cabinetry works just like a trash-recycle pullout cabinet, but with hampers for sorting clothes rather than garbage.
