Extend Storage and Function with Family Studio Floor Plans

What is a family studio? More than your basic laundry room, a family studio is a highly functional space in your home for storage and completing daily tasks. A family studio is over-sized in comparison to the typical laundry or utility room. Built-in cabinetry provides much needed storage and counter-tops offer workspace. Family studio homeplans often have a laundry sink or a center island for even more counter space. A family studio is the ultimate laundry room with ample space to fold or hang clothes or the convenience of a sink to hand wash delicate clothing that can't go in with the rest of your laundry.

Family Studio Designs are More Than a Laundry Room

While a family studio will house your washing machine and dryer, it provides a space for other projects that don't fit elsewhere in your home. The family studio can function as a mud room with a bench seat and cubbies for storing shoes and hooks for hanging coats. A built-in desk can provide a space for your computer and drawers to file paperwork. If you sew or enjoy other crafts, you can set up a craft space with storage for all your supplies and sewing machine. A family studio is designed to meet your family's needs and offers so much more than just a space to do laundry.
