A Marble-and-Brass Laundry Room in Small, Medium, and Large

Fisher Paykel Marble Laundry Room Concealed Stacked Washer Dryer

What would it be like to apply luxe kitchen materials and storage to the laundry room? The design team at Fisher & Paykel, the New Zealand-based appliance maker, posed this question to themselves and got to work. Along the way, they added a challenge: How to make the same design work in a range of spaces, including one not much bigger than a closet?

Here’s their spin on the dream laundry area in small, medium, and large. We see ideas worth stealing in all sizes.

The Tiny Laundry

Compact laundry room design by Fisher & Paykel fitted with the brands's combination washer-dryer.
Above: A laundry with a minimal footprint. The clever recessed design makes use of a materials palette of American oak and white V-grooved cabinet panels offset by a marble counter and backsplash. The sink, faucet, shelf, and cabinet pull are all patinated brass.

The single appliance is Fisher & Paykel’s new Washer Dryer Combo—two machines in one; it’s currently making its NZ debut and we hope will soon be offered Stateside.

The Hidden Laundry

Above: A stacked washer and dryer—Fisher & Paykel’s new Wash Smart Front Load Washer and Condensing Dryer, both available in the US—and storage shelves are concealed behind a paneled bi-fold door.

Here, there’s more below-counter cabinet storage and the backsplash is detailed with a brass sconce and handy hanging rack. The designers note that their three variations to the laundry, “allow you to choose which products you want to have on display and what you want to hide away.” Admiring the paneling?

The XL Laundry

Luxe marble laundry room design by Fisher & Paykel with built-in cabinet storages and side-by-side washer dryer.
Above: The most kitchen-like of the designs offers an extended marble counter with room for folding laundry, plus extra overhead cabinet space, a hanging rack, and an extended display shelf. The washer/dryer are side-by-side versions of the models shown in the previous photo (a notable feature is that the dryer requires no venting, so can be placed anywhere).

For us here at The Organized Home, any of these laundry solutions would be an upgrade over our current setups. Which of the three designs would you choose?
