Laundries to die for . . . what’s in them?August 19, 2011
A laundry room with the star treatment is essentially a workroom, yes, but by making it elegant, the chore of washing clothes feels less like drudgery. With a tile stall to dry delicates and polished marble counters designed for folding laundry, the luxury laundry is a large room designed with the same craftsmanship as the luxury homes gourmet kitchen.
Laundry rooms in luxury real estate are no longer located in the garage; they are often near bedrooms which are the starting and stopping points for most laundry.
The luxurious laundry is typically outfitted with warming drawers for clothes too dainty for dryers, rotary presses to iron sheets and laundry sinks with whirlpool jets to clean comforters. And for those who know and love the freshest feeling of a clothesline, there is even an indoor air-drying unit that promises to deliver something close to a fresh-breeze scent.
