1. Hanging Rod Over SinkDesigner: Valerie Grant InteriorsLocation: Summit, New Jersey Size: 156 square feet (14 square meters); 12 by 13 feetHomeowners’ request. A sophisticated, comfortable, easy-to-maintain home for themselves (a couple) and their three teenage boys. “The laundry room happens to be one of my favorite rooms in the home,” designer Valerie Grant says. “Under the theory that laundry is not a particularly fun activity, I wanted to make the space as desirable as possible. With large-capacity washers and dryers, [and] plenty of room for ironing, folding and line drying, it is a spacious, bright and inviting space conveniently located on the second floor. All combine to make doing laundry a more enjoyable task.”Special feature. “We added a rod above the sink to create a space for line drying,” Grant says. “Having it located above the sink is the ideal location so wet clothes can drip directly into it.”Browse and save laundry room photos
