Recommendation on material for laundry room project...
Hi all, looking for some quick input. Im by no means a woodworking expert and usually just research alot then dive in whatever project im wanting to take on.
Currently im working on redoing the laundry for space reasons. What the plan is to stack the washer/dryer, build a surround around the washer/dryer with a small cabinet on top. Then build a counter that attaches to that surround that sits on a storage like cabinet that fits 4 laundry baskets. Will also have a clothing rod higher up coming off the washer/dryer surround attaching to a small cabinet on the wall.
My question is what type of material to build the surround with? It will be white in the end so keep that in mind. Only thing thats throwing me off is the sides of the washer/dryer surround will be 8'x2'. With it being 8 feet tall, do i go the fancy plywood route being a sheets 8x4 and would be enough for both sides? I just dont know how that would look after being painted and everything. I guess other option is mdf boards being ive seen them sold in 8 foot seconds also. Any other ideas/material that my newbie self is overlooking?
Appreciate the input
