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.
