Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What is the best benchtop for a laundry?

A: If you’re looking for something different to go with your laundry cabinets, choose dark granite stones or granite benchtops. Make sure the materials used in its construction are waterproof. It’ll be great for ensuring its longevity as part of one of the key workstations in your house.

Q: What should be included in a laundry design?

A: A good design includes having the right functionality. If you want to load and unload laundry without having to do this awkwardly, lift up the washing machine instead. As far as height goes, from the ground up, start by raising the front loader so that the drum is between 700 and 800 mm tall. If you’re considering using an appliance like this, consider incorporating them into joinery so they blend seamlessly into the room. When purchasing a new front loader, look for one with drum positioning at the top of its body rather than near the bottom.

Q: How deep should my cabinets be in the laundry?

A: For proper ventilation, at least 42 inches (107 centimetres) of space must be left between opposing cabinetry and walls. Depth- standard laundry room cabinets typically have a depth of 24in (60cm) at the bottom and 12in (30cm) at the top.
