Stunning Laundry Transformation in Eagle Vale
The laundry is one of the most hard-working zones of your home, so a practical design is essential, but looks come a close second. In this renovation, the existing laundry was tired and lacking space. The client requested more storage space so we added brand new cabinets and maximised all available space that the original laundry was lacking. With the use of a stunning waterblend mosaic tile for the splashback, along with a Quantum Quartz stone benchtop, we were able to transform this laundry space into a modern, functional, clean and neat space. We’re sure that you will agree that this laundry transformation looks great and is now a fully functional space to work in.
Five Surprising Facts About Laundry
1. How Vikings did their laundry
Early sea voyagers, like the Vikings, used to tie their laundry up and hang it off the back of ships to wash as it passes through the waves.
2. 70% of dirt on your clothes is invisible
According to scientist's, even if your clothes appear to be clean, what makes them dirty isn't necessarily what you can see. Various types of human matter like dead skin cells, sweat, natural body oils and even the wrong type of detergent can make your clothes much dirtier than they may appear.
3. Washing detergent was invented because of soap shortages during the First World War
Chronic shortages of fat meant soap could not be made , which led to the creation of synthetic detergent. It was first marked as 'Dreft'.
4. Chinese were the first people to use the iron
Ironing as we know it today was invented by the Chinese. They were the first people to iron clothes with metal over a thousand years ago.
5. H. Sidgier invented the washing machine
1782 was the year the first washing machine was invented. Its creator was H. Sidgier of Great Britain. This was a very primitive version of what we have today, Sidgier designed a rod cage that would crank. Years later, inventions like the hand-powered drum machine helped form the machine we use today.
Did you know
If you wash and dry one load of laundry every day for the next 44 years, you’ll clean as much as the folks at Walt Disney World do in a single day. The laundry cast members wash an average of 285,000 pounds each day. Also, between 30,000 and 32,000 garments are dry-cleaned daily. Gotta keep Mickey looking sharp!

Laundry Renovation Tips:
Where to spend money on your kitchen renovation is a more complicated question than you would think. Ask anyone undertaking a kitchen redo and you’ll likely get a different answer from each person! The easy answer is YOU need to decide where your money goes. Your kitchen remodel should reflect the way you live. The gourmet cook will be able to justify spending more on quality appliances and a professional range. The home entertainer will be looking for a warming drawer or wine fridge as essential items, and the busy family is looking for organisational storage. Ultimately, it’s up to you.
