Build a work counter above the washer and dryer to make the best use of the space in the laundry room.

This counter is perfect for folding and ironing laundry. Made of white melamine, it is simple to build and, above all, easy to maintain. There is a space on the side where you can slide in a rolling laundry cart, increasing the storage space. You can always insert shelves or even eliminate this section if space is more restricted.
