Linkwood - Harvey RenoTransitional Laundry Room, Houston
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Angie’s main request for the renovation was that the laundry area be relocated inside the house. It had been in the detached garage, which, if you’ve ever tried doing laundry inside a garage at the height of summer in Houston, you’ll understand how uncomfortable that can be. To create an indoor, air-conditioned laundry room, Merz routed some plumbing into a previously unused sitting area just off the kitchen that had become a catchall. Patterned tile added personality without breaking the budget. Wood plank floor tile throughout the home gives a durable, family-friendly surface. “You can roller-skate on it,” Merz says. “You can’t get more kid-friendly than that.”Paint colors throughout the house: White Dove in satin finish (trim and doors), White Dove in flat finish (ceiling) and Shoreline in eggshell finish (walls), all by Benjamin Moore; laundry cabinet paint: Smoke Embers in satin finish, Benjamin Moore
The more visible your space, the more you’ll probably want it to look nice. A laundry area in a side-entry mudroom that guests and family members often pass through might warrant some extra attention. On the other hand, if your laundry area is in an unfinished basement where few people ever venture, then looks might not be as important to you.
