how to design laundry and shower room

Hi Everyone

Newest member here and needing some help on storage and layout ideas as looking to DIY the laundry and shower. 

Laundry/ pet room and shower are in a dark area next to the garage and we recently relocated the water tank into the garage.

This area needs some TLC as we've moved in not long ago and on a small budget too.

Laundry/ pet area ideas:

*Wooden bench top 800cm wide

*Front loader + dryer under bench

*Subway tiles or flat splashback

* White cupboards top and bottom

* one tall cupboard if possible for brooms, mop and ironing board

*Sink and tapware remain in the same area

*Space to put pet food tub

 

Shower ideas:

*Single glass screen on right side about 800-900cm length

*White rectangular wall tiles

*Tapware and shower head remain in the same area

The DIY stuff we will be doing include;

*Removing and installing floor and wall tiles

*Painting lexicon half walls and ceiling white paint

*Installed downlights and patched old lighting hole

*Sheeting the brick walls with villaboard

 

Biggest thank you in advance!! Hoping to get started during Easter break 😃

Re: how to design laundry and shower room

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @julzdiy. It's amazing that you've joined us and many thanks for sharing your project.

 

I'm just working on a layout for your area. Could you please let me know the overall length of the room, including the shower? I can see the shower is currently 1.2m and then you have another measurement of 2.7, is the room 3.9m long? Or, is that 2.7m length to the edge of the door?

Re: how to design laundry and shower room

Hi @MitchellMc thank you for your quick response.

I drew this to my best ability of the room including doors, which are different sizes to the door frame. Correction with the wall width is 1.48m. I hope this helps.

Thank you again!

Re: how to design laundry and shower room

Many thanks for those additional details, @julzdiy.

 

To clarify, working off the left-hand side measurements, we have 2755mm, 830mm and 1030mm? So, the total length from wall-to-wall is 4615mm?

Many thanks for your patience, @julzdiy.

 

I've put this together for you using Kaboodle cabinetry. Hopefully, it encompasses most of what you were looking for. 

 

Please let me know if there were any adjustments you'd like made.
