For most people, and most houses, cabinets are so associated with kitchens that we usually call our cabinets “RTA kitchen cabinets.” Of course, we also carry bathroom vanities, but those are actually specific lines designed for that purpose. The thing is, while it takes a high-quality cabinet to stand up to the use and abuse that happens in a kitchen, a kitchen cabinet is good enough to use anywhere, and you might be surprised how well our RTA cabinets work in the laundry room!
Why Use RTA Cabinets for the Laundry Room?
A surprising number of modern homes put their laundry areas on the main floor, often in plain sight, such as in an alcove off of a hallway, or as part of the front entryway or mudroom entry from the garage. If this is the case in your home, then using RTA cabinets for your laundry room or laundry area is a no-brainer, to make the area look as nice and as finished as possible.
If your laundry room is more hidden, it’s not as urgent, but RTA cabinets can still provide neat and orderly storage, and give you a work area that’s customized to exactly what you need. Isn’t it about time you stopped using the top of the dryer for spot-checking and folding laundry?
Refrigerator Panels for Stacked Front-loaders
If you have a stacked pair of front-loaders, then using refrigerator end panels from any of our RTA kitchen cabinet lines is a perfect solution. Add in a stack of full-depth storage cabinets, and you have a built-in, DIY linen closet. Then you can use base cabinets to add a work area, and a beautiful laundry room sink that will fit right in with your home’s décor.
Stackable combos are also great for incorporating your laundry area with other household functions. Check out this design, for example, that takes a cue from businesses that combine laundromats and bars. This laundry area is incorporated into a wet bar with a sink. This gives the laundry room a great work area, but also lets this part of the house have another use when you’re not doing laundry, conserving space through multi-tasking.
RTA Cabinet Options for Top-Loaders
If you have a top-loading washer, you may feel left out, with fewer options, but there is still plenty for you to do using RTA cabinets. Yes, your washer needs to be fairly stand-alone, but you can still use wall cabinets above it to add storage space. Your dryer on the other hand may fit neatly between dishwasher end panels. Add a cabinet with a sink to one side to help support a countertop and you can have a much nicer, smoother work surface than the top of your dryer.
