FINALIST – 2022 KBDi – LAUNDRY DESIGN SA
Located in Colonel Light Gardens, this classic bungalow had a 90’s extension that simply wasn’t meeting the client’s needs anymore. With adult children, our clients were looking for a space that would more suitably cater to their love of entertaining and focus on functionality, while still paying respect to the heritage of their bungalow.
Similarly to the bathroom, the adjoining laundry underwent structural changes to increase the footprint of the space. The laundry was all about function. Our designer worked closely with our client to create a laundry that was easy to use, suited her lifestyle, and laundry process! Our designer incorporated many design elements that assisted in achieving this for our client.
Hanging space was something the previous design was lacking, as the client was frequently ironing business shirts, incorporating both a hanging rail and a concealed hanging rail within the end cupboards allowed for ample storage and drying space. A pull-out hamper and multiple drawers were integrated for sorting of laundry and making use of every inch of space. The long cupboard incorporated shelving and a laminate bench, positioned at the perfect height for our client to easily slide her ironing board away. This was neatly hidden behind Hettich Wing Line Bi fold doors which easily glide open to reveal multiple power points for ironing. The end broom closet also has a power point to ensure our clients vacuum is always fully charged. Overhead cabinetry reaching 2.5m was designed to allow for even more storage! Utilized with push catch mechanisms these doors look sleek and subtle. As our client said, more storage than she knows how to fill!
This bright and beautiful space was achieved with Laminex Oyster Grey cabinetry and client supplied handles. The galley design framed itself beautifully around an existing window, beaming with natural light. For continuity from the other spaces, the main benchtop is Caesarstone Georgian Bluffs and Suki Snow Mosaic Kit Kats were installed horizontally as a feature splashback. The Greens Global Galliano mixer in gunmetal features a pull-out hose making filling buckets easy work!
In addition, Brilliant SA also replaced all outdated hinges, door handles and window furniture throughout the space to tie in with the new gunmetal selection. Overall, both our designer and Brilliant SA’s construction team delivered a quality solution for each space, meeting and exceeding the present and future needs of a wonderful client!
