A butler sink and a tap with ceramic handles would add to the country vibe, as would tongue and groove cabinetry. Sliding pocket doors or barn style doors are also high on our wish list for laundry rooms, as are pretty shutters.

For something more city chic, handless cabinetry, sleek lighting and matte surfaces work together to create a calming, zen interior.
