We upgraded our laundry by installing new cabinets, open shelves, a 2400mm laminate marble-look benchtop, sink and mixer tap. I started with the overhead cabinets and eventually worked on the bottom.
Originally we wanted to knock it down and move it into another section of our home, but the alternative of upgrading the space is more feasible at the moment.
Removing the laundry trough and installing a new benchtop and cabinet for a sink and mixer was uncharted territory. The laminate marble-look benchtop made the cuts outs for the sink and mixer much easier to do and is budget-friendly.
