Renovation Detail: The Kitchen Laundry Room

After purchasing our house from an elderly couple who’d moved the laundry area from the basement to the kitchen, I was unsure how I’d feel about washing my unmentionables and sautéing veggies at the exact same area. But after 14 months at our house I can honestly say I’m hooked! It is so convenient. I’ve the kitchen table for folding and therefore are often reminded to change the laundry on account of the hours I log cooking.

Our washer and dryer are concealed behind bifold doors, and while we’ll replace the chimney once we revive our kitchen, the layout is the bee’s knees. It helps for us to keep our cleaning supplies with our laundry supplies in a central site. Whether you are able to bring a laundry unit to your kitchen or costume your butler’s pantry, then I highly recommend the kitchen laundry room.
