A couple of things to note first…it was raining and the sun was pouring in at the same time when I was photographing this space. We decided we didn’t need a pool bath there so took in that space to not only extend the laundry room, but also to add a dog wash. We’ve had dogs just about our entire marriage (sometimes 3 at a time) and have never had one before so decided it was time!
The cabinet to the right is where we store all of our doggie paraphernalia and food for our pup, Gracie.
I’ll get back to the dog wash in a minute but one of my other favorite things in this space is our Ikon sink by Blanco in anthracite (that’s the color) Siligranite, which is a high quality granite composite that is heat, scratch and stain resistant. I’m sure by now you are wondering what the cabinet color is…it’s Dried Thyme by Sherwin William’s. These are a quartz by MSI in Fossil Gray and I do like them in a bathroom I have them in upstairs but wish I had gone with white or with marble in the laundry room for more of a contrast.
You can read a blog post HERE where I changed my kitchen backsplash out after living in our previous home for only 2 years, and it was by far one of the best design decisions I’ve ever made! I’m in the process of picking a fabric for a custom dog bed for her to fit the space so I thought instead I would show you this canvas laundry hamper on rollers I recently found, and love.
And of course the custom styled 3″ white oak shelves (similar) add that touch of beauty and design I love in every space. They aren’t really reachable to store things on for use (for someone my height anyway) but make for beautifully styled shelves in what would otherwise be a bare spot. You will notice I also took the white matte subway tile all the way to the ceiling – probably my best decision in this space. I love the paper maché bowl, wooden clothes pins, and white laundry balls as well I used to style the shelves.
Across from the washer and dryer and white oak shelves are some super tall cabinets that store all of the dog stuff (far left) and a broom closet on the far right that holds my Dyson stick vacuum, etc., with some shelves up top for detergent, etc. For my stick vacuum, I had my builder put an electrical outlet in the back of the cabinet so that I can charge and store it out of sight.
And I LOVE these great shampoo bottles I found with personalized labels that come in different colors and styles.
You can see Gracie’s dog bowls a little better in this photo ~ I love them and they come in different sizes and fonts too. I’m sort of over the patterned tile phase but chose these early on in the building process and was not able to change course during construction because they had already been ordered by the time I decided I’d prefer something different. Love this Murchison & Hume hand soap and lotion duo set.
Another favorite is the wooden handled brush and black marble tray to coral everything. I love the ability to personalize these for yourself or for the task you’ll be using it for, and the spray nozzle is so cute!
I love these plush, organic white cotton towels so much and have them in every bathroom in our home.
