Historic Denver Laundry & Half-Bath Remodel

Fall 2021: Denver, CO Laundry and Powder Room remodel

Project: The homeowner did not like how the flow went from the kitchen to the laundry room and really did not like how the current laundry room looked. It was just pretty basic with a utility sink that didn’t work properly, the washer & dryer, and just white upper cabinets. Additionally, there was a toilet room off the laundry room, but the owners really wanted a true half-bath where you can wash your hands in the bathroom. The project entails removing some walls to change the entry into the laundry room, as well as expanding the size of the toilet room to include a vanity. With the age of the home, we needed asbestos & lead tests before anything could be done and happily they came back negative!

Mood Boards:

Proposal: The updated kitchen of this home built in late 1800s is primarily white, grey, and black with stainless steel appliances. With the laundry room right off the kitchen, the goal was to have a seamless flow from kitchen to laundry, but start to introduce color with the touch of green. The home has a staircase leading to the basement off the laundry room that has exposed original brick and we wanted to nod to that original design element by choosing a brick tile glazed with green from Fireclay tile. We continue the introduction of color into the powder room which is adjacent to the laundry room. More green with a modern green vanity and adding in wainscoting to give a nod to the historic home. The wallpaper above the wainscoting also plays homage to histsory with the Strawberry Thief Morris & Co. Wallpaper, featuring a classic whimsical design dating back to 1883. The 19th century’s most celebrated designer, William Morris was a key figure of the Arts & Crafts Movement. This powder room combines historical elements with mid-century modern design to create a beautiful and interesting bathroom sure to impress guests.
