Interior designer Rebecca Tenbrink gave herself a one room challenge. She took her self described “boring, and ugly, and completely not functional” laundry room and gave it a quick update. And the stars of the show are the new Kenmore Elite laundry pair!
As Rebecca reports in her series of blog posts, this laundry room “also doubles as a half bath and is the only bathroom on the main floor. Between our family, guests, and now two kids (we just had a baby girl 2 weeks ago) this is one of the hardest working rooms in our house!”
With this laundry room/half bath serving so much purpose for this busy family, it was time to take its design from boring to soaring!
As you can see in the “before” photo above, the room included an older laundry pair – which also happened to be Kenmore models. As Rebecca points out, those old units were “manufactured in 1991 and still kicking! That is a LONG life for a washer and dryer and thats why I knew I wanted to use kenmore yet again!”
Now, those old appliances have been replaced with brand new Kenmore Elite 5.2 cu. ft. Front-Load Washer w/Steam Treat and dryer. And the design of the room – from the tiled floor to the black ceiling – perfectly coordinates with the new laundry pair.
This is goes to show than even functional rooms can be imbued with great style.
