Nowadays, laundry rooms have become another room to bling out. And I'm all about it. Why not turn something that's a necessary evil into something you enjoy? Okay, well you still might not love doing laundry but at least your surroundings could be beautiful. Here are some laundry rooms that make me wanna roll up my sleeves and scrub those grass stained clothes.
The pull-out clothes rack is super functional. I got one at a thrift shop recently that I want to make into a wall mount version like this one. And I must get something to hang my ironing board up on. Love this idea.
It's a great idea to have some cabinetry in your laundry space. We saved a cabinet from our former kitchen to use in our future laundry room. I've seen lots at the Habitat Re-Store that would work well for this job.
We will have a utility sink--which aren't the prettiest things to look at unless you do something like this to it.
Amy over at Plain & Fancy Living has a tutorial to make your own utility sink skirt. I'm planning on trying my hand at one myself. Here's hers. Isn't it awesome?
Space for open storage in this laundry room. (And it looks great too!)
This will be how our laundry area will be set up. It'll be located behind our new back door. I don't want ours completely open like this one since it'll be in the main entry.
So this is the plan: run a curtain along the front of the washer and dryer. Love the casualness of this look and plus I didn't want 15 doors all opening up at the same place, know what I mean?
Fun art (although I don't think Gertrude would approve) and a smart idea to install a bar to hang wet things from.
Okay this laundry room is the size of my kitchen--maybe bigger. A carrara marble topped island in the middle? Yeah, I guess I'd take it.
Stackable version in a closet. Great space saver.
Love the prettiness of this laundry room. Paper on the wall, that fabulous light, and built-ins: Perfection
And this one might be my fave. I think it's so cute in all its retro flair. Oh and I have that laundry sign and plan on using it in the new space. And I have a cool story about it too that I'll share someday.
This is designer Danielle Oakey's mom's laundry room which is just beautiful.
And this one was designed by Urban Grace Interiors. I have a similar light fixture that I want to incorporate into my design.
And now...the dream laundry room you've been waiting for! Here is my current one in all its glory. I know, hard not to be jealous, right? Do you spot our saweet Flyer dryer? Uh huh.
Okay, no seriously, the above picture soon will be gone (we're removing that beautiful pink insulated wall and that area will be our dining room.) and the new laundry area will be here.
So I have high hopes, peeps. I can see it all in my head, believe it or not. A little bit of paper, paint, blood, sweat and tears...okay, hopefully not the blood or tears part, but I'm sure there will be a lot of sweat involved. And hopefully soon I'll be able to share the transformation with ya.
