Home Design: Wash Away The Winter Blues

This project was an entry to dsm’s inaugural Home Design Awards, announced March 9. See the winning projects at dsmhomedesignawards.com.

Designed by Eden and Gray Design Build, this laundry room is the perfect utility space for an active family—including their two dogs.

Originally a front play room, the design team converted the space with a stacking washer-dryer, built-in cabinetry and several areas to hang clothes. The pets have plenty of amenities, too, including a shower, a cabinet with a sink for filling water containers, a pop-out with food bowls, and a built-in kennel. 

Because the room is in the front of the house, “it was also important that it was beautiful,” says designer Hanna Shiplett. The greige cabinetry complements the patterned tile, which adds a playful note underfoot.
