Pro Tip

For a great-looking, functional laundry room, install flat-pack, ready-to-assemble kitchen cabinets.

Ready-to-assemble cabinets save money because you don’t pay manufacturer’s assembly costs.

Clip together side and bottom panels, then connect back and bottom boards; install angle supports in corners.

Anchor cabinets in wall studs; install kitchen counters on top.

Leave 36-inch aisles around island.

Leave 3-inch clearance between open lids of top-loading appliances and cabinets.

Get ironing board in a unit, which can be mounted on back wall of pantry.

Nail wood block to each upper corner; then use nail gun to attach molding to ceiling and block.
