Your laundry room should be functional, but that doesn’t mean that you have to live with exposed pipes. You can hide the plumbing in a room to make it more appealing. These can be done yourself, without the need to hire a contractor.
HIDE PLUMBING WITH APPLIANCES
Ask for the plumbing to be placed low enough that it can be hidden behind your washer and dryer when you are having your home built. To help hide the plumbing between appliances, place a small table. It will hide any cords or vents.
INSTALL A FABRIC CURTAIN
To hide unsightly plumbing, you can purchase and install a curtain made of fabric. The curtain can be attached to the wall between the walls or to the shelving. You can simply lift the curtain to access your appliances. This is best for dryers and washers that are side-by-side.
INSTALL SLIDING DOORS
To conceal your plumbing, you can put sliding doors in front appliances. However, this requires basic carpentry skills. Wood panels, track, hardware, and a top shelf are all required. To make the wood panels more appealing, you can paint them or stain them. When you are using the washer or dryer, slide the wood panels to the side. Rubber stops are installed to prevent walls from getting damaged.
BOX THEM IN
Box in exposed plumbing. You can do this by building a small box around the pipes. The pipes should be grouped together. You can use 1/2-inch plywood to cut the length you want using a circular saw or a chop saw. To build the box, you will need four pieces.
