Laundry actually used to be a punishment when I was a kid...seriously, a mountain of it. But these days I wouldn't mind spending time in a well-designed room, with a fresh linen smell. And since laundry rooms aren't something that you typically spend a whole lot of time in, its a great opportunity (much like a powder bath) to try something out of the ordinary. Take a look at a few "Dos."
|Do make your laundry clean and bright, it is all about cleanliness after all. I love the touch of decorative necessities, i.e. the canisters with laundry powders. Or you could fill them up with dryer sheets! Art and useful!|
|A perfect opportunity to go bold, make your W/D a statement!|
If you don't have a full on room to clean your clothes in and you are stuck with a closet, like myself, you can jazz that up pretty easily.
|Have custom cabinets made in your Kitchen to blend nicely with the rest of the decor, but hide the machines from sight.|
|Hall closet Surprise! Tiled back splash with clean cabinets, folding surface, and a place to hang drying clothes.|
|Not only does this built in cabinetry hide your laundry machines, but also serves as a utility closet hiding all your unsightly cleaners! Just be sure to lock it if you have small children!|
|Barn door obsessed? Way better option than the boring bi folding doors, and LOVE the punch of color!|
|How about adding a built in for your Separation Anxiety pet? Nothing I hate more than a huge crate in my house.|
|Take the opportunity to great creative with the color, after all this isn't the main part of your house, so its great to practice being bold.|
