Laundry room reveal day!  It’s finally here!  On one hand I feel like this has taken 82 years, but on the other hand I feel like I was just posting about my laundry room makeover at our old house (which was *gasp* in 2015!)  While I can say that my style has changed some over the years, my washer and dryer certainly has not!  One of my main goals/challenges for this space was to work around our existing laundry machines, while also keeping in mind they won’t be here forever and I’d like to make this space work for potential front loading machines in the future.

To truly appreciate this renovation you need to be reminded of where I started just 7 weeks ago.

Some of my other goals for our laundry room were to:

  1. Add more storage.  (Our house lacks storage in general)
  2. Hide all of the vacuum/broom/mop stuff
  3. Create a countertop area for folding clothes
  4. Keep adequate hanging space
  5. Add hooks for more hanging/storage
  6. Not break the bank
  7. Keep the laundry basket open and exposed so I can continue walking by and throwing things in from the doorway!
  8. Be gorgeous and flow with the rest of my home

 Here was the design plan I came up with:
