Whether your laundry is a dedicated room in your home, or a European cupboard style, it needs to be a well organized, smart use of space.
At Complete Kitchens we can make the most of your laundry area, be it just a place for your washer and dryer, or a multi-functional room.
SPACE AND DESIGN
The Dedicated Laundry Room – If you have the luxury of having a separate room, we can design your laundry space to include some much needed storage for your cleaning products and equipment such as vacuums, buckets & mops or brooms.
Combination Rooms – Whether space is of a premium, you prefer the more minimalist approach or you want a multi-purpose area, here are some great ideas to maximize your space:
European Laundry. Originating in France, these were traditionally hidden away in a cupboard in the kitchen and were designed for apartment living but these days are becoming more and more popular. They are able to be put into hallway cupboards, under benches in kitchens or even under the wasted space under a staircase – utilizing sometimes forgotten spaces.
Bathroom. Traditionally seen in apartments, the shared bathroom laundry situation may not be ideal but needn’t be ugly either. Hidden washer/dryer combo’s in matching cabinetry to the vanity can be a stylish solution to an age old space problem for inner city dwellers.
Mudrooms. Country properties, houses in colder climates with snow or beachfront retreats utilize these rooms often and are the perfect place to combine a laundry.
Butler’s Pantry. If you are fortunate enough to have the space for a butler’s pantry it makes sense to also hide the washer/dryer away here too. And because its already hidden open cabinetry is all that is required.
The process for a laundry renovation is quite similar to that of a kitchen. Therefore we are also able to offer a trades coordination service, as well as installation of your cabinetry and benchtops. It is up to you to purchase all your appliances, such as your sink and taps.
The cost of a Laundry Renovation can vary, depending on which of the above options you decide on. For example if you are designing a combined Butler’s Pantry/laundry then the washer and dryer can easily slide under the pantry bench that you’ll be installing for the pantry anyway. Here may just be some extra plumbing costs associated.
On the other hand, if you have a larger, separate laundry room the cost will be more as you will have to build dedicated cabinetry for your appliances not to mention storage. Typically, the cost of such a laundry renovation is between $12,000- $20,000 to include everything, a reasonable budget for the cabinetry and benchtop would be between $4,000 to $8,000.
