Yep, our Laundry door is from the kitchen so we just continued the same through there. We have Caeserstone benchtops in Walnut and white cupboards/drawers with a bevelled edge and silver handles. The only difference is the floor the laundry has a nice dark brown porcelen tile and the kitchen has vinyl planks in a timber look along with the rest of the house downstairs. At one stage I was thinking we could do the opposite to the kitchen and have a white benctop with dark cupboards and white tiles. So using all the same colours but a bit of a contrast.

I'm not going to match mine. No way would I spend $$$ on a composite workbench and painted doors for a laundry. That said, mine is at the other end of the house. If they were close together and both potentially visible at the same time I think I'd suck it up and spend the cash.

If visible from one room to the next, I'd be matchy-matchy, or at the very least, opt for similar features/colours - that's just me though rolleyes.gif

There are some pretty good matches between products these days (engineered stone vs laminate for example) so you could probably get away with complimentary colours/looks with out replicating a complete room. Alternatively, make your kitchen a feature which is not replicated elsewhere (ie, your laundry would be more similar in style to your bathrooms, as an example).


Good luck smile.gif

No I didn't, I wasn't going to install granite benchtops and high gloss cabinets in the laundry.

Instead I just had plain white cabinets. I don't think it looks odd or mismatched, mind you, we don't have a big laundry with lots of bench space.

Ours are going to be matching. Including stone benchtops, gloss cabinets - even the glass splashback!

I found a few pics on photobucket of my kitchen and laundry

This is the kitchen (The laundry is through the door to the right of the pantry)

And the matching laundry. I think because we have so much bench space and cupboards that it would look odd if it didnt match. And the laundry door is always open so it just flows through nicely.

We even have the same stone and floor tiles in the bathrooms, but went for white glossy doors with a normal edge instead of the bevelled.

Love it too claire - we are having the same doors installed this week!!!

I will match but our laundry will also be a second toilet so be seen more often - I don't think they need to but we are not getting stone benchtops etc in our kitchen so not so pricey to match.

Ours don't match, but you can't see my laundry from my kitchen.
Our bathroom & laundry match though because the laundry is next to the main bathroom.
