Laundry room - traditional laundry room idea in Burlington with brown countertops and beige walls

Stunning laundry room, mud room & dog showerTraditional Laundry Room, Burlington

Moving the washer/dryer out of the kitchen into their own space was not a difficult decision. Meeting all of the programmatic requirements of this new room was a little trickier. Designing enough room to be able to wash the dogs and water houseplants, as well as folding laundry in a small space was solved by providing a removable countertop. When the counter is needed, the two pieces easily slide in place and they are pulled out of the way when the water is needed. When the dogs get a shower, the handspray works best, but for the plants the swing-arm potfiller serves optimally. The client had been saving these 19th century English transferware tiles for just such a project. The mahogany countertop, antique drying rack, windows and built-ins, and exquisite tile work make this a stunning room to do your laundry. Renovation/Addition. Rob Karosis Photography

    Love it ! What a brilliant idea for a doggie scrub down zone ! Outdoors works fine in warm weather but winter is another matter. This is also a fine use for the Transferware tile. For those who do not have a collection of originals, we offer inexpensive reproductions at Villa Lagoon Tile.

    Hi, they are the The LBL Lighting Bare Head Swivel I. If you click on "more info" underneath this picture, you'll get to this image's main page, which is tagged. When you hover your mouse over the picture, you'll see a green tag on the light that leads to more information.

    By the way, that's a dog shower they are over - I'm working on a Houzz Tour on this charming Cape right now - more info on it to come ;)

Where do you get a drying rack above the dog bath?

  • Becky Harris
    I believe that is an antique. This homeowner had amassed a house worth's of furniture for years while planning her renovation, including the tiles used in the dog bath.

    Yes, this is from the homeowner's antique collection.

I'm curious, how big is the room?

  • PRO
    Smith & Vansant Architects PC
    It is approximately 11' - 4" wide x 8' - 2" deep. There are built-in cabinets on the right which take out 28 inches of useable space and the Washer/Dryer takes out an additional 34 inches, leaving 6' - 2" of useable floor space.
    Hope that helps!

    This faucet is from Rohl - their Country Collection - swing arm pot filler. The hoses are typically 60 inches long.

            We are not at liberty to share that information. The tile is imported from England, so it is safe to say it was fairly expensive.

            My eye is twitching. prgoodson go over to Grainger.com and look at the large mop sinks. for a bigger dog you need at least a 36 inch. Make sure to use backer board made for water applications. Apply a water proofing membrane, Find some pretty tile. Tile and grout. Get a commercial restaurant dishwashing sprayer and......Presto! Chango!....... dog bath. GO PRINCETON!!!!

              This was another item our client had picked up over the years in planning her dream house to incorporate into the design - it was salvaged.

              I assume you meant "makes" the ceiling fixtures. Those are the LBL Bare Head Swivel I - these are MR16 bulbs and are integral to the design.
