This is a small space and I really had to think what I wanted to do in this room as well as what I wanted stored here. As you can see, we have a Maytag Bravos XL washer and dryer. I love them! The new technology is a big improvement on our old Maytag. Our clothes are clean and the process is much quieter! You can see they take up a lot space and that surprised me. J had to cut the dryer vent hose just right so the dryer would clear the plantation shutters. I also store a folding clothes rack and my clothes steamer here.
I had our cabinet maker build only base cabinets and I had him add a Formica counter top for folding. I didn't add wall cabinets as I was afraid it would make the room look smaller than it already was. We added one shelf I already had and another one J made to liven up the wall a bit. I added some of my photo and plants. This is a hardworking room and I didn't want much decor to clean.
The outside wall has a clock and I hung my mother's old wash board on the opposite wall.
My laundry and cleaning supplies are stored in the cabinets. When we moved, I really pared down my cleaning supplies to what I used on a weekly basis. The rest were donated or pitched. What I kept HAD to fit comfortably in this cabinet.
I've been following Mary Organizes 91 Decluttering Challenge and it has helped me decide what to keep and what to let go of.
Ironing supplies and mops are stored behind the door as is a hanging rack for clothes ready to be ironed. I'm hoping to find just the right hooks to hang my ironing board some day soon.
That's our little hard working laundry room. The master bedroom is just a few steps away.Thanks for stopping by! I'm interested in your comments and how you utilize your laundry areas. Wishing you all a happy week!
