One of my favorite homes, this historic home built in 1928 in Floral Park has a very tight laundry room and needs a more efficient use of their space. I, admittedly, did not take a lot of pictures during this build. But here are a few pieces of information about this project:
There is a window directly to the left which meant that putting an enclosed shelf or cabinet against the window, even with a gap, just wouldn't look right. We opted for a rounded corner floating shelf design. For this I used 0.75" melamine pressed board. I rounded the corners w/ a 4" radius and then ran a 0.25" dado for the 3 shelves and glued/screwed the shelves together from behind. I then attached the shelves to the cabinetry and secured it all to studs. Next up was the countertop. My client had originally requested stone, but it was a little out of budget so we opted for 0.75" maple ply (doubled up) w/ a 1.50" chair rail to finish the edging and 0.50" quarter round for the joints. I inserted a 2" grommet for the power supply to the w/d and left a square open in the back to service the washer and dryer supply/drain lines if necessary. Lastly, I built a 7.25"x39.5"x15.75" adjustable shelf cabinet to maximize the space between the washer and dryer as well. We didn't leave any available space open.
One of my clients called me and mentioned she was expecting. I couldn't have been happier for them. She needed to enclose their existing loft space in their 1br/1.5ba condo to use as a nursery. We made a plan and set out to complete it. She always wanted a barn door and after finding just the right one, we got going!
