Case Study: Transforming a Laundry Room into a Practical, Luxurious Laundry & Boot Room for Johanna Brooks

At Renovation Builders Sydney Experts, we specialize in laundry renovations and upgrades that blend practicality with luxury. This case study highlights our recent project for Johanna Brooks in Wentworth Point, located in the inner west of Sydney. Johanna envisioned a comfortable, multifunctional space that would serve both as a laundry room and a welcoming boot room, perfect for returning from cold winter walks.

Project Overview

Johanna Brooks approached us with a desire to transform her laundry room into a space that could handle the demands of washing and drying laundry while also providing a cozy refuge. The design needed to be practical, luxurious, and capable of fulfilling multiple functions without compromising on comfort or style.

Project Objectives

  • Practical Functionality: Create a space that efficiently handles laundry tasks.
  • Luxurious Design: Incorporate high-end finishes and fixtures for a touch of luxury.
  • Multipurpose Use: Design the room to serve as both a laundry area and a boot room.
  • Comfort and Warmth: Ensure the space is inviting and comfortable, especially after a cold winter walk.

Our Approach

Initial Consultation and Design

We began with a detailed consultation to understand Johanna’s needs and preferences. Our design team created several layout options and 3D renderings to help visualize the final result. After reviewing the designs and making necessary adjustments, we finalized a plan that perfectly matched Johanna’s vision.


The renovation process involved several key stages:

  1. Demolition and Preparation: Removing outdated fixtures and preparing the space for the new design.
  2. Structural Modifications: Making necessary changes to create a more open and functional layout.
  3. Plumbing and Electrical Work: Upgrading the plumbing and electrical systems to support new appliances and heating.
  4. Flooring and Tiling: Installing durable, easy-to-clean flooring and elegant tiles that enhanced the room’s aesthetic.
  5. Cabinetry and Storage: Custom-built cabinetry and storage solutions to maximize space and organization.
  6. Appliances and Fixtures: Incorporating high-end appliances, including a washer, dryer, and drying cabinet, along with luxurious fixtures.
  7. Boot Room Features: Adding a bench, hooks, and shelving for coats and boots, along with underfloor heating for added comfort.

Collaboration and Communication

Throughout the project, we maintained open lines of communication with Johanna. Regular updates and site visits ensured she was involved in every step of the process, and any concerns were promptly addressed.

Challenges and Solutions

Challenge: Limited Space

Solution: We reconfigured the layout to make the most of the available space, using vertical storage solutions and multifunctional furniture to create an efficient and spacious environment.

Challenge: Combining Functionality with Luxury

Solution: We selected high-quality materials and finishes that were both durable and luxurious. This included marble countertops, custom cabinetry with soft-close mechanisms, and high-end appliances that offered advanced features while maintaining a sleek appearance.

Challenge: Creating a Warm and Inviting Atmosphere

Solution: We incorporated underfloor heating, soft lighting, and warm color tones to create a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. The addition of a comfortable bench and hooks for coats ensured the room served as a practical and inviting boot room.


The renovation resulted in a stunning, multifunctional laundry and boot room that exceeded Johanna Brooks’ expectations. The space is now highly practical for laundry tasks, with ample storage and high-end appliances, while also serving as a cozy and welcoming boot room.
