This space serves multiple purposes for our clients.  It’s the primary family entrance to the home, serving as a place to remove shoes and jackets, as well as a “drop zone” for groceries and such.  In addition, it also connects the home to the patio out back for relaxing and grilling.  A large closet serves as both a coat closet and pantry for the nearby kitchen.  As if that isn’t enough, our team also added a main-floor laundry in this space, making it a very busy area of the home.  The room has an odd shape with strange angles, adding to the complexity of the design.

Our team custom designed and built a bench/storage system.  This gives our clients a place to put on and remove shoes.  Hooks keep often used jackets close by.  Drawers below store gloves and hats, while the upper storage keeps general items behind closed doors.

The laundry area includes a stackable washer/dryer.  A sink provides a place to hand-wash items or cleaning paint brushes.  Our clients report that it has also come in handy for an additional dishwashing sink during parties.  The custom cabinets include upper storage for laundry supplies and a lower pullout that holds laundry baskets perfectly.  Cambria quartz countertops are beautiful and easy to maintain.  The pattern served as the color inspiration for the rest of the room.

The spacious closet is divided into two areas: one contains rods and cubbies for shoes, jackets, and hats.  The other side contains simple open shelving and serves as a pantry.  Bypass closet doors keep everything contained.

A beautiful rustic alder barn door separates this busy space from the rest of the home, and a Marvin patio door provides access to the patio.
