Though it should never be at the expense of form, every parent knows functionality is king when there are kids in the mix. Make your life easier by including a long benchtop with plenty of room for sorting and stacking. Open shelving puts chic essentials on display, while a ladder and a few well-placed hooks are ideal for hanging.
When it comes to appliances, Fisher & Paykel’s large-capacity FabricSmart Front Loader washing machine is fantastic for families, with wool and allergy functions, and the option to add and remove garments when it’s going. Meanwhile, the Condenser Heat Pump dryer has a key-lock mode, so little fingers can’t mess with the settings.
Got more style than space? Maximise the latter by moving your Fisher & Paykel appliances up in the world with their handy stacking kit – it’s perfect for apartment living. Tuck it all away behind dark timber cabinetry with luxe brass accents.
As for those designer threads, Fisher & Paykel’s FabricSmart Front Loader washing machine provides the ultimate fabric care and is super-quiet too. Choose its delicate, wool or wrinkle-free cycles for your high-end favourites, then finish the job with the Condenser Heat Pump dryer set to wrinkle-free. This dryer couldn’t be easier to install: it doesn’t need venting, so just plug it in and press go.
If you spend more of your time outside than in, you’re going to need a hard-working laundry. Team shiplap walls with a deep vintage-style bucket sink, and include hidden storage overhead for sports and gardening gear. Offset by bright white appliances, a palette of timber, concrete
and pale khaki creates an earthy vibe.
