With the careful selection of key ingredients, your new laundry might even become – don't laugh – your favourite room in the house!
Generous well-organised storage is a must for a laundry you'll want to spend time in. Everhard's Nugleam drawer system laundry unit has been cleverly designed to maximise storage, with a bottom drawer large enough for bulky containers, plus finger-pull functionality for a minimalist, modern look. The unit can be used either alongside custom cabinetry or as a standalone piece for a retrofit solution.
One of the key ingredients of a good laundry is a tough sink to tackle the hard demands of family life. To choose the right one, consider your household's needs. A large sink is a must if you want something big enough to soak a load of sheets, but if your needs are more modest, a kitchen-sized version will do, leaving more space to spread out on either side. Everhard's Nugleam utility sinks come in three sizes – 35L, 45L and 70L – so you're bound to find one to suit your space. Regardless of size, your sink should be robust; the Nugleam sink comes in tough stainless steel, with a 25mm internal corner radius to make it easier to keep clean.
Clear bench space for folding, sorting and odd jobs is an essential feature of a stellar laundry. The Nugleam range of units and utility sinks is designed to pair with custom cabinetry, so you can match the system with all the bench space you desire.
A laundry that's easy on the eye is going to be a lot more pleasant to spend time in, but it needs to be more than just a pretty face. For a functional laundry that will last the distance, look for hard- wearing materials that look good, but can also take a beating, from rough handling and wet conditions. As the centrepiece of the laundry, the Nugleam drawer system – in super-strong, heavy-duty galvanised steel – is tough enough to meet mess head on, while delivering a stylish white powder-coated facade to complement any contemporary laundry scheme beautifully.
