The laundry room in our house is a scary place. Unlike the beautiful, convenient spaces of new construction homes, our laundry room is in the basement. We're actually lucky in that we have a nicely finished basement and the laundry room is a separate dedicated space. Most of the houses we saw when househunting were much worse.
We started planning earlier this year for what we'd like. There will definitely be paint - LOTS of paint. We have some interesting closet doors that were converted to shelving (by some previous owner) at the moment. That will be replaced with a wall of cabinets. Still, we had no vision. Has anyone ever managed to make a basement laundry room a space where you WANT to go?
Alas, an article on Country Home has brought my dreams to reality.
This is what they started with. This is pretty much what we have except packed with a lot of stuff that needs organizing and donating.
Now we know it can be done. We just have to get around to doing it. With a bathroom under construction and the holidays approaching, this is going to have to wait until we originally planned - next year.
