**Downsize your laundry.** Slotting your washing machine and dryer into a cupboard enables you to have a laundry in high-traffic areas such the kitchen or bathroom, which can also be shut it away. Also utilise any spare surface area for storage by building in shelves, shacks and hooks.

As seen on HGTV's Love It or List It, Hilary's design for this laundry room/bathroom combination includes a neutral color palette with complimentary pops of color. Functionality is apparent with front loading washer and dryer and a folding shelf above both.
