Our laundry rooms have a lot of work to do, and so often they are built as bare rooms with limited storage features. We usually see wire shelving above the washer and dryer or perhaps cabinetry or a mixture of both.
In this space, we need to be able to store dirty laundry, fold clean clothes, have space for laundry baskets, hold laundry cleaning supplies and other household cleaning items. We may iron here. We may also allow wet clothing to hang dry. It is also nice if you can keep household staples like lightbulbs and batteries here. There is a lot to do–and we need a creative plan to make it all happen comfortably and efficiently.
For especially small spaces we like to consider the possibility of open front cabinetry without doors–either high on the wall or low with a countertop. This is because the swing space for doors require a lot of open area that we may not have. In addition, from the upper cabinetry a hang rod is an important feature for clothes drying or clothes prepping.
We have a lot to do in the laundry room, so we need a space that WORKS!! Can you imagine how your laundry room can do more?

We have a few tricks for keeping the meds […]

We’ve had questions about what products we might suggest to help store toys so that they fit well in the play room, in response to last week’s blog. In general, look for furniture that takes advantage of vertical space–not just low-to-the ground storage; make sure there are varied depths of bins or shelves to harbor everything […]

Frequently I hear my clients say that the play room always looks like an explosion. Kids toys often are stored at kid height along the perimeter of rooms nearly encasing the entire space with what can feel like continuous clutter. So many toys these days require their own floor space like doll houses, and play […]
