ONLY DINING ROOM, OR SOMETHING ELSE?
When you have little space and you have to think about solving all the functionalities that a house requires, this kind of solutions arise in which we place a completely complete "laundry corner" behind apparently innocent closets that little anticipate their particular interior content.
