Maximising space with a long benchtop and overhead cabinetry allowed more room to be productive in this narrow laundry.

The project

 

After ripping out the old sink, cupboard and wall tiles, I decided to utilise all space available in the laundry to make it a productive space that's more enjoyable to use. I purchased Flatpax cupboards, subway tiles and grout from Bunnings. I changed the handles of the Flatpax cupboards to suit the handles throughout the rest of my house.

 

A local cabinet maker built a custom benchtop and shelves to match what I have in my study. The long benchtop provides a place to fold clothes instead of using the spare room.

 

The plumbing connections are under the sink so I cut a hole through the side of the sink cabinetry to run the washing machine hoses, and I screwed from the inside of the cabinetry to install the floating shelves. 

 

The complete project cost approximately $1300 (not including the washing machine upgrade) and my wife is loving the two laundry chutes.
