Our laundry room is one of two main entries into our home. You see… our laundry room suffers from a case of the “pass-through’s”! What does that mean? That means that it is the narrow corridor that you pass through when entering our home from the garage and it dumps you into the kitchen! Because of this, the laundry room has been a horrible dumping ground for miscellaneous junk ever since we moved in, and it gets seen all the time since it’s right off our kitchen. On top of being very tight on usable space, the one shelf that was in the laundry room was literally out-of-reach for my 5’2″ frame, making its use nearly impossible! So, it was settled… LAUNDRY ROOM IT IS!!!
Here’s my main inspiration for the laundry room makeover:
This is what I started with…
Clearly the room is so small and awkward that it’s superhard to photograph! Please don’t judge the terribly difficult/awful pictures, but you get the gist!
In the end, this is what I came up with:
- Painted herringbone, color-blocked accent wall
- Fresh paint for entire room
- Custom DIY-built shelves and brackets
- DIY’d wall art and shelf decor
- More efficient storage
- Easier access to frequently used items
