Last month, I attended NAHB’s midyear meeting in Miami and had the pleasure of sitting in on a presentation by Daniel Swift, president and CEO of Des Moines-based architecture group BSB Design.
Laundry Room as Family Activity Center
The Family Studio concept from Whirlpool Corp. elevates the laundry room to a spacious, multipurpose, family-friendly place.
|In the Family Studio, the washer and dryer, ironing system and other appliances -- as well as ongoing projects and seasonal items -- can be concealed by attractive cabinetry. Bright colors and natural light, along with a central work table and counter space, make the room pleasant and useful.|
The Family Studio concept from Whirlpool Corp. elevates the laundry room to a spacious, multipurpose, family-friendly place. By expanding the room's function, not only does it make the laundry chores 28 million people perform every day more pleasant, but it provides a convenient space for other family activities such as art projects, sewing, homework, gift wrapping, puzzles and pet care.
According to Whirlpool research, three-fourths of consumers expressed interest in the Family Studio concept.
