As soon as you enter the room you see one of my beloved farmhouse sinks. It took some convincing to make Kenny understand just how much we needed one in this laundry room. Luckily after living with an attorney for 17 years you learn a thing or two. He’s not the only one in our house who is good at making a persuasive argument and closing a deal. :)
Floor tile is the same tile we used in the girls’ bathroom. I decided to place it in a basket weave pattern in the laundry room to mix it up a little. For those of you who have asked about it, the manufacturer is Alfalux and it’s the Olimpia Series – Color Clay. I ordered it through a tile store (knew I loved it the second I spotted it!) but you can find it on-line here.
I just went with a simple white subway tile backsplash and Caeserstone quartz countertops. This quartz is different from the quartz I used in the perimeter of my kitchen. It’s called “Concrete” and is more of a dark grey than a black. So happy with how it turned out.
I didn’t love how they jut back in – sort of hiding in the corner. I thought about adding a cupboard door to make them closed and opening up the cupboards above the washer/dryer to be open shelving instead. You can imagine Kenny’s reaction when I came up with that one (after everything was already installed)… “we haven’t even moved in yet and you’re already trying to remodel!?” Ha! Good thing he loves me. :) My builder convinced me to leave it for now and wait and see because it’s something we can always change down the road. I’m glad he did because I think opening up the three cupboards above the washer/dryer would have been too much open shelving to style and a waste of good cabinet space. Now that I’m living in my house and starting to decorate it I’m realizing that I have plenty of open bookcases and shelves to play with. Besides, too much of a good thing is never a good thing. Unless maybe you’re talking about open shelving? :)
