Full height cabinetry allows for easy concealment of brooms/mops/vacuum cleaner. Having the washer and dryer separated creates more benchspace in an already tight area. Perhaps framing the dryer with cabinetry would create a more streamlined look.
These retractable shade panels easily pull back when shade is not desired or when foul weather is threatening. Stainless steel supporting cables are included. Custom sized for an existing trellis or to fit within a new stand alone frame.
