Putting the “Utility” in Utility Room

It’s a Laundry Room, a Mud Room, Pantry, Catch All.  Most houses have them.  That room that’s by the garage door or, if you’re in the South, the door that everyone you know comes through because front doors are just for show.

We took this empty room and transformed it into the perfect landing zone for a busy family.  As you walk in from the garage you’re greeted by a hall tree to hang backpacks, and put shoes.  We made a fully adjustable shelving unit so it can change as their needs change.

Utility Closet

Next, we built a large three-door closet.  This closet has one bank of adjustable shelving for those things you use, but not every day, but still want access too.  Those things.  The next is set up for the vacuum, cleaning supplies, and has a clothes rod for hanging clothes out of the dryer if needed.

Dryer Stand

When we arrived the dryer was sitting on this ugly wood box.  The homeowner mentioned she loved the height it made the dryer but very ugly.  We made a beautiful dryer stand with a full extension drawer for additional storage (can you ever have enough?)

Above the washer and dryer, we built matching upper cabinets.

Window Nook Desk

One unique addition to this laundry room is this little window nook desk.  It was one of those “can we do this?” additions and I’m proud of how it turned out.

Draw-Bridge Doggie Door

Do you even love your dog if you have not provided them with a draw-bridge doggie door?!  I’ll admit that I did this for free because I thought it would look cool.  There was a door here that the previous owner sealed up.  We removed the old leaky door and framed in this opening with a high-quality Low-E window.

 

Water Heater/Pantry

This is the only original cabinet we left in this room.  Refacing a cabinet box can save a lot of money so we refaced this old ugly cabinet to make it look just as good as the new cabinets.  This method saved the customer about $1000 over fully removing and rebuilding a similar cabinet.  Don’t Replace – Reface!

  1. What a great job. It is nice how you listen to what I wanted and then you and your apprentice got to work. I love it. It works very well. Couldn’t be more pleased.
