The room that we have for this activity is embarrassing. A catch-all for.....ALL. A dust bunny haven. A black hole...? 10 square feet plus washer/dryer. THE WALLS ARE CLOSING IN! I began to wonder....couldn't this be more pleasant?
Here's a truck load of photos of laundry & mud rooms done right, with some basic rules of thumb.
1.) Unify your containers.
2.) Make it homey. This laundry room is adjoined to the kitchen. This drape will serve as a sound buffer and a clean slate when guests come to visit. A clock, pendant light, and whimsical shelf make folding clothes a more pleasant task. Even the dang laundry basket is precious.
3.) Keep clutter minimized & hidden. (See how much better these stacked rolls of toilet paper look than the tacky plastic wrap they come in?)
5.) Make the space work for YOU. Consider other items this space can hold for you. For us, we need a place to store our dog food (all 80 lbs. of it), patio pillows, and tool kit.
Have any of you mastered the 'pretty' laundry room?
