Our laundry was pretty basic with just a standard trough and no storage. We wanted to make it more practical but had a very small budget.
So we went to Bunnings and bought a large bench top, new sink, 2x cupboards and some beautiful tiles.
It took us less than a day to put it all together, and the best part was it only cost us around $500 all up!
Thanks so much! @HandyH
Yep it’s perfect for towels, we have a newborn that gets bathed in the laundry sink so her towel lives there along with other washing that is still a little damp at the end of the day that I don’t want to leave outside overnight. 👍🏻
For those asking, the cupboards we used are the Marquee 1000mm melamine base cabinets ($99 each) and we just put different handles on them, the bench top is the Marquee 2400x600x25mm laminate white bench top ($99), the sink is the Estilo 610x510x250mm stainless steel laundry trough ($110), and the wall tiles are the Bellazza 60x30cm builders porcelain floor tiles ($25 per pack of 6, we used 2 packs).
Many thanks for the extra detail @prettyliving. Great to see so many people have already been inspired by your renovation.

Hi I’ve just measured our laundry and it’s 6ft square. I want to do ours as it leads off the new Kaboodle kitchen we had put in 2018. We have a tiny house it’s an old SA housing trust detached house, very basic. You’ve given me the inspiration to get our laundry done now answering questions that I wanted to ask. Thankyou, we want to get it done now as we’re both now in our 70’s and still able to climb ladders. We did our lounge room last year.
@Moomarg Oh that’s awesome! Good for you! 😁 I’m glad I inspired someone 🙂 Keep us updated with how it goes 😃
