Bev and Morgan were looking to achieve certain goals and overcome other restrictions they currently faced in their home in Daglish. Their focus was on maximising space in both their laundry and bathroom.
Location – Laundry, Powder Room and Bathroom
Budget – $50,000 – $60,000
Renovation Time – 1 month
- Increase the amount of storage space, as well as allowing storage of larger items
- Allow room for a dryer
- Retain the basin in the powder room
- Retain the fridge in the section near the Laundry
- Create a space where the shower is easily accessible
- Increase the storage space to allow for a laundry hamper
What we did to achieve these
In the old laundry, there was a dividing wall that split up the powder room with the rest of the laundry. As licensed builders we were able to remove the dividing wall to open up the space. This allowed us to utilise the wasted space in the powder room as an area for the fridge. We designed and built a new smaller dividing wall and added a second wall that split the powder room and the new fridge recess.
The powder room became a large and functional space with a hand basin. The fridge recess only needed to be 800 deep, leaving room for us to design and build a beautiful open timber shelf unit – every millimetre was utilised to its most potential. We split the overhead cabinets in order to accentuate the 3 metre high ceilings.
There was quite a lot to fit into the laundry given the dimensions. In order to maximise the storage space as well as get the best out of the room we installed a compact laundry sink. This sink was the desired 45L capacity, but was smaller in width, and deeper in height. Making it the perfect solution. Bev and Morgan were thrilled with the outcome of both the laundry and the bathroom and say that they still haven’t used all of the storage space they’ve got!
