Soak & Spin

Design Inspiration
Soak & Spin is a refined, nature-inspired space where practicality takes the lead. The Laundry Room is one of the workhorses of every household so bringing a sense of calm and tranquility to this space makes it a more enjoyable experience for all. Inspired by the alluring tree just outside the window, this space is all about a clean, neutral palette and creating movement through textures and different finishes. We wanted to make the chaos of everyday life slowly slip away while performing daily household tasks.

Highlights
We designed this space to be functional, but also beautiful. The washer and dryer are hidden behind retractable pocket doors that can be opened when in use and closed to hide the mechanics of this room when desired. We created a pull-out to house the detergent between the units for ease of use.

We designed this space to have two different cabinet styles, as well as two different finishes, helping to create visual interest. The texture of the reeding on the washed oak lower cabinets complements the painted white upper cabinets.

Everyone expects to find a tile on a Laundry Room floor. Finding the right one can be a great way to introduce something unexpected. We love adding an unexpected element to our designs. We used an organic shape in a dark finish giving the space a unique feel. We chose a dark finish to add contrast and help ground the space.
