Creating a Dream Laundry Room
Many Anchorage homeowners continue to invest in their homes to make them more functional, enjoyable and valuable. Desire for a better home is particularly widespread among Alaskans who are working part-time or full-time from home. Our showroom has received increasing demand for more efficient, effective and beautiful kitchens, baths, entryways, mudrooms, and laundry rooms among other spaces in a home.
There are several keys to creating a dream laundry room space. One is having sufficient space. A minimum of 80 square feet is necessary if homeowners in Alaska want a laundry space that features storage cabinets, a sink, washer and dryer and room to maneuver. We can help you create the space you need to make your laundry area the envy of the neighborhood. Including a deep countertop can be achieved by specifying front loading instead of top loading washers and dryers. A countertop, at least 24 inches in depth, is valued by homeowners in Anchorage because it provides adequate space for a laundry basket to sit on top and to sort and fold clothing. Another option to create space is to specify an appliance that both washes and dries or to opt for a stackable unit.
Many of the conveniences that make a kitchen more functional and enjoyable to use can be applied to laundry spaces. Pull out hampers provide a convenient and hidden space to deposit clothes that need to be washed. Drying racks in the laundry space are another welcomed feature of a well-designed laundry. When possible we specify drying racks above a heat vent.
Many Alaska homeowners welcome the idea of including a closet in their laundry facility that they can use to store brooms, vacuums, ironing boards, mops and other cleaning supplies and equipment. We often recommend including a power outlet in storage closets that can be used to recharge vacuums and other equipment.

The Hottest Bathroom Trends
The primary bath has been transformed from a functional room to brush teeth, bathe and prepare for the day to an in-home refuge where homeowners in Alaska can spend a few minutes all to themselves devoid of texts, tweets and even little feet to recharge and rejuvenate their body, mind and spirit by washing away the stresses of the day.
Top Reasons to Renovate Your Kitchen
The number one reason why homeowners in Alaska decide to create a dream kitchen is that their existing kitchen does not work well or meet their needs. We frequently hear from homeowners that their kitchens don’t have enough storage capabilities, countertop space or cabinetry. Other common reasons are lack of maneuverability, appearance and poor ventilation.
