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.
