It’s been a dream of mine to turn my laundry room into an enjoyable and functional place. I wanted it smart yet relaxing. I wanted to make the tasks of washing, ironing and folding less of a chore and more of a pleasure.
The room is designed with everything you need. When I designed the space I made most of every inch. Above the washer and dryer I had installed a drying rack. I also added reclaimed wood shelves to hold soaps, towels and some decorative accents to give charm. There is a large cabinet for more storage. In the side of the cabinet space is a bench for more added storage. There are lots of large windows for lots of light. It’s such a cheery space.
I added little sofa that is the main focus of this room, here is where I can relax and read a book while the clothes are drying.
Open shelving keeps everything accessible. The open shelving was made with plumbing pipes that were installed with screws into the wall. The Reclaimed shelves lay over the pipes.
The planters, wire basket, metal basket and colorful rugs are all part the theme for my laundry room space. I have been working hard stenciling pillows. Check out the stencil pillow here. These pillow will be perfect for the settee. Botanical framed prints will be places on the shelves to give the whole laundry space a pretty charming.
My goal at the end is to stay on budget which I did. The open shelving saved me lots of money instead of installing upper cabinets.
