We have talked about this project for a couple of years now… so excited to say we have already started on transforming this space which is our closet and laundry- yes, our washer/dryer is in our main closet. While this is extremely convenient, the setup/layout has not been ideal for doing laundry for five people and having enough room to actually fold the laundry which is why most of the time, if you were to step inside our home, you would find a pile of laundry either in a chair or on the sofa in our living room.
And if that isn’t keeping it real enough, see below for some real life photos of this space we are updating!
Today, we are sharing and focusing on the laundry area of the closet… hoping to share the Closet Design Plan next week!
Standard wire shelving and our mismatched washer/dryer…
Our washer went out about seven or so years ago and we replaced it, but it has been awful- recall after recall… so we finally made the decision to purchase this Washtower to free up some space! It should be delivered next week and I cannot wait!
Laundry Design Plan
Get the Look
As you can see, by replacing our side by side washer/dryer with the stacking Washtower, we are able to add some counter space, peg rail storage, drying rod, and also a curtain below to hide the dirty laundry and any extra detergents/cleaning supplies. Really excited about this little area of the Closet and to see how it all comes together!
We are still trying to decide on a color- I have it narrowed down to these four and swatches should be arriving in the next couple of days so we can make a decision. We are using Clare Paint for this project and I am so excited for this experience!
Colors shown above- Rain Check, Grayish, Motor City, Flatiron
Thought it would be helpful to share a link to our Closet Pinterest Board so you can see our inspiration for both of these spaces!
I know not every one has a laundry room, so I hope this project offers some creative inspiration for those of us doing laundry out of a closet 😉
