Kitchens with a Laundry Area

Placing your laundry center in the kitchen maximizes efficiency.

Brilliant White Kitchen Laundry Area

Placing your laundry center in the kitchen makes it simple to do a quick load of wash while preparing a meal or cleaning up.

Blend your laundry area with your kitchen by hiding it behind a set of doors. Here, even when the doors are open, the clean white washer and dryer set matches the color scheme of the kitchen.

Laundry Behind Cabinet Drawers

When designing your kitchen, leaving space for a laundry can prove to be a practical decision. The washer and dryer in this kitchen sit just below the countertop, behind a set of cabinet drawers. When closed, no one will even know that the appliances are there. The countertop is ideal for folding or sorting laundry fresh out of the dryer.

Counter Space for Folding

Make the most of countertop space above the laundry center for folding laundry or storing detergent. Keep countertop clutter to a minimum.

Laundry Behind a Curtain

An excellent way to hide your kitchen laundry center is with a simple curtain. The extra space that this curtain leaves in the laundry room creates hidden storage space for clean laundry or detergent.

Undercounter Laundry Machines

This washer and dry set sits beneath the kitchen countertop and behind the cabinet doors that match the rest of the cabinetry to ensure that visitors are none the wiser.

Laundry Area with a View

Placing your laundry area near French doors allows for pretty views while separating and folding.

Modern-Look Laundry Machines

Front-loading washers and dryers, like the ones in this kitchen, are typically easier to load and use less water than top-loading models. Here, the circular doors mirror the round clock hanging on the wall. The modern design is so aesthetically pleasing that the appliances don't need to be hidden.

Hide Laundry with Sliding Doors

Sliding doors are an excellent way to hide a laundry center in the kitchen. This kitchen boasts doors that match the woodwork found throughout the room. Extra space is added with a countertop above the duo, and an extra shelf for storing detergent and other laundry necessities.

Laundry Area Near the Sink

Placing your laundry center close to the sink makes it easy to get out tough stains, while ample countertop space proves ideal for sorting or folding laundry. This washer and dryer sit out of the way to leave walkways open.

Extra Hooks for Drying Space

This small laundry area is positioned adjacent to the kitchen and features well-planned storage options. Simple hooks are perfect for air-drying shirts. If you choose to install hooks, be sure there is enough space to walk by without knocking anything off the wall.

Stainless-Steel Laundry Machines

This stainless-steel laundry set is perfect for the modern-look kitchen, and it fits in beautifully with the other kitchen appliances.

Built-In Washer and Dryer

Cabinets and drawers next to this washer and dryer make it simple to store detergent or laundry supplies. The white appliances blend with the kitchen's other neutral elements.

Laundry Machines in a Nook

Fit your laundry machines into a nook to keep them out of the way. Here, the appliances are stacked to take up the least amount of space. Countertops next to the units--when not needed for food prep--can be used to fold laundry

Ample Storage Space

Make the task of doing laundry easier with extra storage space that is perfect for stain removers, detergents, and dryer sheets. This laundry space makes room for all of the essentials but remains out of the way when not in use.

Laundry Behind Frosted Glass

This washer and dryer set sits behind a frosted-glass door. Next to it, laundry storage space hides behind another frosted door.

Laundry Behind a Pull-Down Door

In this kitchen, a pull-down door allows you to quickly hide the utilitarian laundry space when company comes. Placing the machines on the ground leaves space on top for storing laundry or detergent.

Clean White for the Laundry

This clean white curtain hangs from the countertop, leaving space above for storing detergent or folding towels. The curtain matches the crisp lines of the countertops and laundry set to blend in beautifully with the decor.
