A utilitarian space like a laundry room doesn’t have to be unattractive or cramped. Here, we extended the feel of the rest of the house into the laundry room. A number of features contribute to an efficient and pleasant laundry day: A large, single-basin sink with pull-out-spray faucet makes it simple to wash bulky items such as boots. The overhead hanging rod allows for air-drying of delicate items. Good task lighting and quiet ventilation elevate the function of the space without drawing attention. And a gap between the sink base cabinet and the side wall accommodates storage of a full-size ironing board and drying rack.
