Laundry rooms also have come a long way in the bare basement rooms so a lot people grew up with. Take some advice from these additions that will help you lighten your load.
Refrigerator. Many houses have another refrigerator in the garage, but these homeowners put you in the laundry area. Building it helped conserve space.
Tip: If you’re not prepared to go that far, a mini refrigerator (no built-in mandatory) could still help you save additional drinks.
Sewing station. Anybody who enjoys sewing knows what a pain it is to set up and take your secondhand machine every time you would like to make a repair or tackle a project.

Tip: Reduced the counter top height to 30 inches and then knock out a cupboard for a few knee space. Make sure there’s an electrical outlet nearby, and don’t forget task lighting that will help you thread your needle.
