Throughout the home there is potential to create a number of multifunctional spaces. Laundry / Mud room combinations have steadily been gaining in popularity, bathrooms have become personal spas, butler pantries offer additional prep and storage space, while closets have evolved into dressing rooms and peaceful sanctuaries.
Laundry / Mud Room
We often see home designs where the laundry room is located near a high traffic entrance for the immediate family. Whether it is located at a back door or on the receiving end of an entrance from the garage, having enough space to hang coats, kick off dirty shoes and store extra items for the season can add a world of possibilities to your home.
Mud rooms and laundry can benefit from a few Marathon Hardware products including drawers, lift systems, and coat hooks for entryway coat racks, pull out laundry hampers for storing dirty laundry, and pull out waste systems for immediately discarding trash and recycling coming into the home. Shelving and closet rods for hanging and air drying clean laundry can also be added, as well as beautiful decorative hardware to tie the aesthetic together.
Bathroom / Personal Spa
The bathroom, especially the main ensuite, should be a place to escape the lulls of everyday life. A place to wash away your stress and emerge feeling refreshed and revitalized.
To help you achieve the feeling of your own personal spa, our Float modular shelving and Salice PIN shelving are two ways to create an open, airy, and modern storage solution for freshly washed bath and hand towels.
Another innovative storage element is the Syphon Plus plumbing cutout insert for vanity drawers. Working around the existing plumbing, Syphon Plus creates one more fully usable drawer for all those little amenities / toiletries, while clearing clutter from the countertop.
Additionally, small pull out hampers and waste bins allow you to hide dirty clothing and discarded waste while keeping a clean, spa-like aesthetic.
Butler pantries offer a storage and prep space just mere steps away from the kitchen. This addition to a home can alleviate excess traffic in the kitchen, while dedicating space to items and functions of your choosing.
Tall upper cabinets with pull outs, lift systems for upper cabinets, built-in pantries with internal drawers, walk-in pantries with shelving systems, pocket doors for tight spaces, and fall flap doors for appliance garages are just some of the ways you can use functional hardware to customize a butler pantry.
Closet / Dressing Room
A design trend that has been growing in popularity over the last few years is the evolution of the large walk-in closet. Displaying in-season garments, storage for out-of-season clothing, and space to try on different outfits are the three most crucial necessities in today’s personal dressing room.
SLIM open shelving by Eureka is one of the best solutions for turning a standard closet into a high-end fashion experience. Legacy Prima drawer systems offer everything you need from glass front drawers for display purposes to internal drawers behind large glass or solid doors that can concentrate all similar items to their respective homes.
