Laundry Room Cabinets

April 17, 2012

I posted a few weeks ago about having to re-order the laundry room sink base cabinet because I had done the math incorrectly — I thought I had left myself three inches, but because of my error I had less than an inch left.  So I returned the sink base and ordered a new, smaller one (three inches smaller).  It came late last week and we installed it so that we could measure for the counters (which is happening today).

The install for the cabinets is a little unusual.  We bought standard-height cabinets, and had to install them on a 2×4 frame so that they would be taller than the washer/dryer.  We also ran a half-inch plywood furring strip behind the washer/dryer, installed a 3/4-inch plywood cleat between the washer and dryer, and a half-inch plywood board along the outside wall next to the dryer.

Sorry for the mess in this photo — I took it this morning after the carpet install had started.  If you look closely you can see the plywood framing that we installed to support the counters over the washer and dryer.  I took the door off the lower cabinet on the bottom left and lost the screws, but the upper cabinet has a glass door.  We think the laundry room looks great.  More photos after we clean up!
