Need help with Mudroom/laundry room
January 9, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We are designing our mudroom. We are going to install cabinets, cubbies, and counter to make the room more functional. Originally we were going to close up the left side door so that cubbies could continue along the corner and onto the middle wall. Now we thought of a great idea of moving the right side door that leads to the garage closer to the middle of the room so that we can put a pantry/storage unit where the right side door is currently. The room is narrow so we will not put anything on the opposite wall, the wall opposite the washer and dryer. The pantry will most likely end where the current right-side door is. My only issue is the placement of the left-side door. If I leave the door and do not close up that wall how do I start the cubby on the middle wall? I'd prefer to leave the door so that we can have access to the outside without having to open the garage doors. I like this door because it leads directly to the backyard and makes throwing out garbage easier without having to carry the garbage through the garage, open the garage door and walk around to the side of the house. The second picture gives you an idea of how I can end the counter next to the door on the washer and dryer wall but I cannot see how they continued the cabinets at the end of the door. Any suggestions?
