I like this concept of an appliance. Maybe by the cabinet near the panty......It could be larger than the standard cabinet and I would like some glass upper cabinets too. Maybe you could pop out the end of the upper cabinet to match the appliance cabinet.
Simple built-ins to create a mudroom or storage anywhere from a kids room to a laundry room by adding shelves or a deeper bench for sitting. Or instead of custom, buy two thrify store bookcases and paint them, bolt them to your wall and add wainscotting between them. Then pick up a thift store bench and cut it to fit. Add the hooks and you're set. - interiors-designed.com
