Compact, Corner Laundry Room

This compact, corner laundry room with low ceilings and odd angles presented a unique optimization challenge. The family of four wished to purchase an XL sized washer and dryer, while keeping a large sink basin, and also plenty of open counter space for folding clothes. In the original configuration, even with smaller appliances, the dryer door couldn’t fully open given the tight corner on the right. To maximize the open counter space while still making the dryer more accessible, we designed a custom angular sink base cabinet and repositioned the sink, tucking it farther into the back left corner. We added a narrow cabinet to the right of the dryer, holding an assortment of drying racks and extra detergent. We chose open shelving above the sink to keep the space feeling light, counteracting the heaviness that sometimes comes with lower ceilings.
