Laundry Room Chords

Your laundry room doesn’t have to be a dingy, disorganized place full of cobwebs and dust bunnies. In this article, we’ll show you the first steps for converting an unfinished laundry area into a finished room. We’ll focus on the most useful upgrade—replacing your old laundry tub with a new, tidy countertop and sink. It involves rerouting plumbing in the walls and installing new cabinets. However, we won’t go into detail about cabinet installation, lighting, wall finishing, flooring or moving electrical outlets. A total laundry room makeover is an ambitious project, since it involves both electrical and plumbing skills. It’s not for a beginner. Altogether it’ll take four to five weekends to finish.

We started the process when our designer, Chloe O’Keefe from California Closets, came over for an in-person consultation. We went through each closet and discussed first function, then look/style and then she took one million measurements to ensure the perfect fit. I told her that our first priority was the most closed storage possible while making it easy to navigate. I was also dying to get our litter box off the floor and in some sort of enclosure, mostly so that their litter would stop getting tracked everywhere in the room/house, making it basically the cat litter room instead of the laundry room. Here is what she drew up:

Mark the pipe route on the studs. The easiest way to run drains is to notch the 2×4 studs for the new plumbing pipes. Then add 2×2 strips to reinforce the studs later (Photo 5). But don’t notch the studs if your laundry room wall is a “bearing” wall—that is, if it supports a floor or roof above it. If you’re not sure, consult a building contractor or architect. If your walls are 2x6s, you can skip the notching; it’s generally easier to drill holes in the center of each stud for the pipes.

Draw a sketch of your proposed piping layout, including pipe sizes, and show it to the inspector when you apply for the permit. Use Photo 4 to help with the drains. Remember to call for an inspection before you cover the pipes with drywall. While the wall cavities are still open, add countertop outlets and new lighting. The electrical code requires a separate 20-amp circuit for laundry outlets and GFCI protection for outlets within 6 ft. of the sink. Put all light fixtures on a separate circuit.

Start by laying out the pipe route. Here are a few plumbing code requirements and tips to guide your plan: Run a 2-in.-diameter drain to the washing machine. Slope drainpipes down 1/4 in. for every foot they travel horizontally. For 1-1/2-in. drainpipe, limit the distance from the P-trap to the vent to 42 in. For 2-in. pipe, limit the distance to 60 in. (Photo 4). Install any horizontal section of a vent pipe at least 6 in. higher than the overflow level of the fixture it’s venting (for laundry sinks, this is the top edge). Slope vent pipes slightly downward toward the drain. Position the sink drain about 3 in. below the bottom of the sink. In most cases, a height of about 16 in. from the floor will work. Locate the top of the washing machine outlet box just below the top edge of the washing machine, usually 42 in. from the floor. Before you buy your plastic fittings, note the subtle differences in the types required—sanitary tee, cleanout tee, etc. (Photo 4).

When you’re done with the copper water piping, close the laundry valve and open the main water valve to check for leaks. If there are no leaks, you’re ready to call for a plumbing rough-in inspection. At this point, complete the wiring. When the plumbing and electrical rough-in work is complete and approved by the inspectors, hang and finish the drywall and install the base cabinets.

One of the things I was most excited about (the fold out ironing board) had to be cancelled once we made space for the laundry exhaust on the right. Things had to shift over, so our drawer had to decrease but if you have more space I highly recommend this fun feature. We put a rod above the washer/dryer for hanging clothes straight out of the dryer or for hang-drying clothes, as well as dry cleaning before it gets put away in closets. Here is a little guide to show you where everything goes.
