This eye-catching laundry room display can be found at Mans Lumber and Millwork in Canton, Michigan. Over the past year the entire showroom has been updated to include fifteen full display vignettes.  Cathie Fernandez, one of four designers at Mans, explains “the goal of the huge remodeling project was to show more than just kitchens, giving the customer more options and ideas for every room in the home. “ In addition to Chico’s new laundry room there are also displays that show bathrooms, home offices, a wet bar, as well as new meeting rooms, all showing the latest in cabinetry and countertop designs.

Chico’s laundry room features Dura Supreme’s Crestwood cabinetry in two complementary door styles, Marquis Panel on one wall and Marquis Excel on the other, all in White Paint with Platinum Glaze.  This ideal laundry room features plenty of open storage for laundry baskets as well as easily accessible boot bench and locker storage.  The inclusion of the pet area makes this small space work for all of the family members, even the four legged ones.
