We’ve large plans to remodel our laundry room rapidly and on a funds! Take a look at our last laundry room design plans (and the two designs that Joe rejected, lol)!
Hiya!!!! In case you comply with me on Instagram you understand that we’re about to provide our laundry room makeover in our present home. Do you bear in mind our first laundry room makeover for less than $71 in our outdated home? It was my FIRST ever weblog submit, consider it or not! After which we gave it a greater makeover about 7 years later (proper earlier than we offered it final 12 months). So in case it is not apparent, I like a great laundry room makeover. I consider we should always love EVERY room in our houses, even laundry rooms, pantries, and so on.
We’re SO EXCITED about this transformation not simply because we wish the house to mirror our fashion extra, however as a result of this room wants some severe enhancements to operate effectively for us.
It is a big room (12 toes x 7 toes), however that does not imply it is superior and useful. The one storage is the cupboard beneath the sink (and everyone knows how frustratingly cramped these are) and the cupboards above the washer and dryer. Here is the factor… I am 5’9″ which is fairly tall for a girl and it is HARD for me to succeed in something above the decrease cabinets in these cupboards. Not solely are they excessive (these are 10-foot ceilings for reference), however as a result of the washer and dryer stick out up to now it makes you must attain EVEN farther. Lengthy story brief… the higher cupboards are practically ineffective for us.
The most effective storage within the laundry room for the time being is the highest of Riggins’ crate. Unhappy however true. It is the place we hold all of his stuff (canine treats, grooming instruments, flea and tick prevention meds, and so on). However it’s mainly an enormous tabletop which implies it all the time seems to be like a sizzling mess with stuff strewn in every single place. That drives me and Joe nuts.
Listed below are some photographs of what the laundry room seems to be like now.
So, with that in thoughts, let’s chat in regards to the laundry room design and what we’re doing in right here!
The most important storage addition goes to come back within the type of an open closet that we are going to be including to the large wall the place Riggins’ crate is correct now. We’ll be utilizing the IKEA Boaxel system (the brand new model of the Algot system that we used a lot in our outdated home–you may examine that HERE). We will probably be eradicating Riggins’ crate now that he is older, so that may release the wall for some REAL storage.
Here is our plan for that wall. Once more, the ceilings are 10 toes tall, so this will probably be A TON OF STORAGE. We plan to make use of the higher cabinets for issues we hardly ever need to get to, like further paint. And all of this wonderful storage and drying rack solely value $340!
We plan to cover the brand new closet system behind floor-to-ceiling curtains, which you may see within the laundry room design plan beneath.
We’re additionally going to take away the higher cupboards and exchange them with decrease open shelving that will probably be a lot simpler to entry. Plus they are going to be fairly!
That is the enjoyable half! We’ll be including numerous enjoyable texture in colour on this room. Detachable wallpaper, vinyl flooring sticker tiles and paint are going to permit us to do rework our laundry room rapidly and on a small funds. In any case, this can be a laundry room and we nonetheless have LOTS of labor to do in different rooms on this home. So we do not need to spend a ton on this makeover.
Here is the profitable design plan! We selected it as a result of BOTH Joe and I prefer it. And ensuring Joe likes the areas we create is necessary to me–we each reside right here, in any case! The closet wall will probably be behind the curtains. You will discover hyperlinks to the sources beneath.
