Design Inspiration - laundry room

One of the things that I loved the most about our old house was having the laundry room upstairs.  The convenience of not lugging baskets of laundry up and down the stairs was one of the priority items on our list when we designed our home.

Our laundry room ended up being large enough to serve as a laundry and sewing room.  We'll have built in cabinets, a utility sink, washer, dryer and a sewing counter with a built in nook for my antique school house chair.  It's shaping up to be the perfect spot for sewing, especially with the east facing windows.

I've always wanted to include antique crystal knobs somewhere in our house, and this seems to be the most logical spot.  I also picked out a light fixture that's fun, adds some character and produces a lot of beautiful light in a small space.

Here's what I've come up with so far:
Wilsonart Laminate Countertop in "White Carrara" 4924  - a beautiful, cost effective option for high traffic, functional spaces.

White Shaker style cabinets

Antique reproduction glass knobs to add some fun to an otherwise utilitarian space
Glass mini pendant - approximate retail $90

Mannington Naturals "Alloy" 17382 vinyl flooring - another cost effective option that comes in large sheets to prevent seams and potential for water damage
