My "laundry" is an insert within my bathroom, and it needed shelving to make better use of the space.
My initial concern with the project was the risk of screws poking through the left hand wall, but with screws of the correct length (30mm) this wasn't an issue.
I originally considered Melamine for the shelving, but eventually opted for Pine utility panels as I wanted to complement the timber accents throughout my apartment and bathroom.
I stained the shelves and supports walnut, which was a perfect match for the rest of the timber in my apartment, and also coated them in polyurethane for added protection.
I put a lot of consideration into the height of the shelves to maximise the space.
The lowest gap allows space for a laundry basket; the first shelf is just tall enough for large detergent bottles; the second and third shelves are a perfect height for a stack of towels; and the gap at the top allows just enough room to slide boxes or baskets in and out.
These specific heights meant that the lowest shelf needed to sit beneath the laundry taps. I cut a piece out of this shelf for the hose and to allow for any drips. I think it worked well.
I used Liquid Nails for extra strength, and it worked perfectly. I'm really pleased with the results.
