This mom of young twin boys needed a functional laundry and drop off area when entering their home from the garage. The original laundry room did not have a designated drop off zone, which meant everything ended up on the floor. She also wanted a space to fold laundry and store additional home goods.
To create the new space, the wall between the existing laundry room and an underutilized spare bedroom was removed. A new drop zone made from Alder with a bench and cubbies was built so the boys had a place for their things. New Alder cabinetry in an espresso finish provided additional overhead storage. A Kohler apron sink with a decorative pendant light allow for easy clean up, while a built in marble folding counter gives easy transition from the washer/dryer units. A backsplash made from 4x8 subway tile, bar tiles and decorative flower tile accent the walls and blends well with the new porcelain tile floor. Next to the drop zone is a new storage/utility closet. Additional features of the room include a wider opening into the area, additional counter space and cabinets, and a door that leads to the back yard.
Now this busy family can enter their home and easily unpack the day in their new laundry area.

I wanted the hallway to flow into the dining and living room. The walls are Expedition Khaki by Behr, with a chocolate glazed faux accent stripe that goes along one wall.
I changed the fixtures to the hanging lights to give it a "club-like" entrance.

My Country Home Entry Way needed help; so I wallpapered the walls to look like logs and then I laid new subflooring down and tiled my floor using pennies. Using pennies / glue/ grout/ sealing with epoxy floor level, and wow the new look is amazing and everyone every time loves the floor.
I went from cheap metal shelving to these custom open cabinets for less than $100 in materials. One 4x8' sheet of Oak plywood and an African Mahogany face frame.
