Laundry makeover with large bamboo benchtop

Installing a benchtop to fit above the washing machine can offer double the bench space.





The project


We painted our blueish grey laminate cupboard doors a year ago as a quick freshen up in the laundry. Recently we inadvertently poured diluted pool acid into the laundry sink which damaged the stainless steel surface so it was an excuse to do a revamp of the space.


We purchased a clearance bamboo benchtop and installed a flat pack laundry chute. Really happy with the result and I now have twice the bench space as before.




All products were purchased from Bunnings, our “go to” store for everything renovation or gardening. We had some bits and pieces from other jobs at home, but I think that we spent approximately $1,000 not including the plumber and electrician.
