Here’s what we moved in to:
Basically a giant closet with the washer and dryer in it. Not a bad deal really but it lacked, shall we say, charm and any sort of class. Now we’ve moved in, we have shelving in the basement storage room so it was time to make the laundry room a decent place to frequent. I put all the extra traveling bags I had hung up inside a suitcase and on a basement shelf.
Then all the hangers into a garment bag, also onto a basement storage shelf.
I removed the hanging bar, which wasn’t even screwed into a stud to reveal the shelf behind.To fill in the white wall without painting it I hung a large, blue-themed painting we had that was just hanging in the basement toy room. I got Hubby to push the washer ever so slightly further from the dryer so that I could wedge in a milk crate to store some of the laundry cleaning products.
I put two 3M Command hooks on the side of the dryer, one for the black bag of missing socks, the other for the delicates washing bag.
I added plants, a diy scrapbook calendar I had made, and a lazy suzan that Hubby hated in the kitchen and voilà, a decent looking laundry room.
