Hiding the laundry

Our furniture includes deep internal drawers that hold the laundry. This way the mess can be out of sight. Of course if you prefer, you can choose a designer basket and leave it out for people to see as sometimes that can be fun to coordinate for the style of the space. However, if you are limited on space and going for a minimalistic approach, this is the best solution.



Organizing and hiding detergents and accessories

Tall units, wall units, open units, and deep drawers are the essentials in order to keep everything looking clean and organized.  These pieces will hold everything needed for washing and cleaning. Keep in mind that in a bathroom laundry, a portion of this space is dedicated to function. Remember that when we are planning your future space, that it’s not only for storing personal cosmetics, etc.



Hide the sink? 

Sinks are a thing of the past. Nowadays, we don’t wash as much by hand as we used to. However, sinks can be useful for a number of reasons such as a baby bathtub, a puppy, orwashing large objects.  What we recommend is installing a hybrid washbasin that is able to increase its depth to becoming a sink. It will look good on the eyes, but hold convenience when needed.

Hiding brooms and buckets in a bathroom laundry

Now, this depends on the size of the space. If your bathroom is big enough to be used for organizing all your house cleaning items, we recommend choosing storage units with a large capacity so that you can fit buckets, vacuum cleaners, brooms, mops, and more. We have tall units with different widths and depths that make the perfect storage space and piece perfect with the bathroom and laundry interior.


Hiding the ironing board

Ironing is not a frequent activity, but it’s sometimes a must! You don’t need to much for this, only an ironingboard, an iron, and any special products needed for this task. These can easily be concealed from with with our closed storage units. We may even be ale to add a pull out ironing board.
