Laundry room by day, guest quarters at night.

A space that triples as a laundry room, a study, and-in a pinch-a guest room, this 9- by 11-foot former bedroom was remodeled to function as all three and also provide a remarkable amount of storage for picnic baskets, hampers, out-of-season clothes, and other little-used items.

The 3-foot-deep, 7-foot-long counter serves as a desk, a laundry-folding table, and a platform for a bed. Underneath, a lateral file drawer holds family accounts.

Track lights can be directed for best use in whatever role the counter is performing at the moment. On the rear wall, the foam-core bulletin board is covered with fabric that hides pushpin holes and blends with the room's warm tones.

Across from the counter and the stacking washer and dryer, there's storage, storage, and more storage-all hidden from sight behind birch plywood doors.
