This room is both laundry room and entry way. Having the appliances as inconspicuous as possible was one of the goals as well as utilizing every inch of possible storage space. One new row of cabinets was added below the existing uppers and the sink cabinet was replaced. All of the other cabinets were simply painted and hung with new doors. The water heater was hidden behind a sliding access panel and the laundry hookups are behind a panel that is hinged above. Rustic Hickory heartwood was used as in the kitchen. The result is a very warm and tidy entry to the home with more storage than ever!
