Most of us don’t look forward to doing the laundry.
I’m going to blame it on the fact that the average person does not have a laundry room like this one from Better Homes and Gardens. Who wouldn’t enjoy curling up in a comfy chair with a book and a coffee while waiting for the laundry to be done? (Because we all have that kind of time on our hands) Then folding it as the natural light floods in from a large window.
Instead, most of our laundry rooms closely resemble the ‘before’ above. Some of us might even be a little jealous that this one actually has cabinets and a window.
This is the ‘after’ and proof of what can be done to the smallest of laundry rooms. You can check out the transformation process at Cameras and Chaos. She even mixed her own paint from a $5 mistint.
You may think there’s no hope if you only have a laundry closet. Nope, sorry, you no longer have any excuse after seeing this one from Domino. Especially now that we can pick up all of our supplies at Chilliwacks own BRAND NEW Home Depot! Which I have sadly not been to yet. My mom is watching the older two girls tonight so date night (with our youngest) at Home Depot! Since I’m very pregnant, I’m planning a romantic evening of chasing our daughter around the store followed by some spicy food. Two of many things that are suppose to induce labour (none of which work, but that doesn’t stop a pregnant woman).
I love these space saving drying racks from Ballard Designs. They’re not badly priced for what they are but they are also a simple DIY project.
Take a look at the one Centsational Girl made.
The Grundtal drying rack from Ikea is a similar idea with a more industrial look.
So, why not love your laundry room? I can’t promise you’ll suddenly love the act of doing laundry but, like any other room in your home, prettying it up will make the time you spend in it more enjoyable.
