Laundry room cabinet re-do

We are looking at replacing our laundry room cabinets, changing them from standard depth to 24 inch deep cabinets so it is easier to reach them given the size of our new washer and dryer. The room is 90" long, 66" across 95" high. Washer and dryer are 32 deep with 7 inch clearance behind them for hoses and exhaust. There is a laundry sink also

Because of the depth of the new cabinets, we will need to support them. It has been suggested to us that panels going from the bottom of the cabinet to the floor be used, but we are worried that it will be difficult, if not impossible, to move the washer and dryer out for repair or replacement.

We have talked about building a soffit, or maybe adding braces to the ceiling to help support. I am attaching some pics. Please offer some ideas. We also do not want to move fan or light if possible. thanks.

Re: Laundry room cabinet re-do

Best would be build out a frame wall so you can attach 12" deep cabinet. Don't know if 24" deep cabinet can be suspended with the backing only, unless it is made for legless install.
Easier if your ceiling joists run cross wise to your cabinet wall but if not, you may have to put blockings in the ceiling or frame the bump out that is reinforced with internal web of ply or braces.
