I’m slowly but (hopefully!) surely working on the house reveal. With two little one’s it takes an inordinate about of effort to get a room “picture worthy” and I don’t even have a real high standard for picture worthy! My time is also occupied right now with my new shop which is wonderful, but cuts into my blogging time. So, all that to say, here’s the laundry room!
So here’s the inspiration board (original post about it here). My number 1 priority was getting a space just for Luca in the room. Our architect wasn’t quite sure about our plans, but he drew it in and it turned out wonderful! It took quite a bit of work on the cabinet side too to get it made. I want to do an in depth post about how it works soon.
We also had our cabinet design guru draw out plans for the laundry room since it was going to be such a large space and I wanted it chock full of cabinets. The cabinets that we got ended up matching her sketches almost exactly.
When you walk into the laundry room, the washer and dryer is on the left. It’s topped with cabinets on the left where I store all my cleaning supplies (out of reach of the kids but within easy reach for me!) and a drying rod on the right. One of the best parts is the stainless steel countertop which is fine to let items drip dry on top of and is so easy to clean up!
On the right is my beloved wrapping station as well as areas for the laundry baskets. This hasn’t come in super handy yet since it’s not Christmas, but it is nice to have a place to store everything. And the stainless counter on the other side is perfect for wrapping!
The back wall when you walk in is made up of cabinets surrounding the circular window. It looks like I didn’t get a picture of the whole wall, but the left hand side is a full length hanging bar for drying pants, with the broom closet next to it, and then a White Vermont Granite counter with a basic drop in laundry sink.
And then facing the sink is Luca’s area. The pictures don’t really do it justice (I have to do another post!) but it’s really neat and has been so nice to have!
