Tile hides laundry chute.

The hinged lid built into this tiled countertop is almost invisible. The lid opens to a hamper that reaches from the bathroom into an adjacent laundry room. Made of tile mounted On 3/4-incb plywood, the 16by 24-inch top pivots on a brass piano hinge set along the back edge.

Behind the tub, the counter narrows from 22 inches to 18 1/2 inches. This location puts the opening far enough from the sink, and high enough above the tub, to reduce the danger of water reaching the hamper. Inside it, an angled plywood insert directs clothes toward the laundry and clears the hydromassage tub's pump motor. The bathroom remodel was by interior designer Irene Sohm for Liz and Louis Becker of Los Altos, California.
