Laundry cabinets, countertop and W/D - Pic.
We want to update the laundry room. I appreciate any imput you might have.
Right now, we only have the W/D and a wire shelf (6' wide x 12" deep) with a built in rod. We sort and fold the clothes over the dryer and also place some pieces in hangers, then temporarily on the rod and when we are done take everything to closets. We keek one or 2 of my husband's jackets on the rod, most of the year.
We also have a 24" wide base cabinet on the side with a sink.
We want to buy a new set of FL W/D (see link) if you have a better option, please let me know.
These are my options:
The top one shows the widest counter at 40" H (a bit high but we are tall) and side by side w/d. They do not have tall base cabinets so I will need to place it higher and cover the bottom space with a baseboard or live an open space on top (with a cap)
The second shows stacked w/d and the counter is at standard 36" H. I could have an open area in the base cabinet (for baskets and other things) or all doors.
The laundry is on the first floor and the flooring is leveled. We are on a crawl space.
The third option shows a utility cabinet and a 40" High counter. I could skip the counter and use the top of the w/d or buy a worksurface (the one that they sell with the W/D.
I am not too trilled on installing a rod. I guess I could always use a foldable hanger holder (or a "valet" rod) on the wall.
All the counters will be 30" deep.
Thanks you for taking a look at this!
