Laundry Area cabinets WWYD?

plumberrySeptember 15, 2013

Our laundry area is in the garage. what type of cabs would you use? I'm thinking Ikea or Home Depot Kraftmaid or something like these. Probably a corian countertop for folding. Any recommendations would be appreciated.

As I think about it, I think I would like to be able to close off the folding area within a cabinet. I would want all things laundry related behind doors to cut down on dust. But you will need to keep your washer door open to prevent mold smells, right? Maybe the actual W/D could be in the open but every thing else behind cabinet doors.

yes, I know it's a drag to have it in the garage.
I just find that I tend to fold or hang quickly (and have used the inside door of the dryer) and then bring in the house. It's very awkward so I imagined a small table/countertop, that would be wiped down beforehand (to eliminate dust) so that I can do the quick fold and hang. Maybe I could even have a removable cover to keep dust from landing there to begin with or as you say box it in. Now, I'm thinking maybe there's a way to add a short wall...Or, forget all of it and just carry everything in the house - though I can't think of an ideal set up. any other ideas are welcome.

Would any of those garage cabinets work for you? It seems they have all sorts of configurations to house stuff.

I know what its like to have awkward (or at least what we think is awkward) I have a refrigerator on my back enclosed porch, right around the corner from my tiny kitchen. It works, but is a bit fussy to maneuver.
