Though the laundry room is bare bones right now, it's organized and efficient. I spent a good portion of my time last school year making my entire house more organized and efficient. This year, my goal is to maintain that order and add some personality to our home. Make it more us. My friend Julie's home is very personalized with lots of touches that make it feel cozy and homey and just theirs. In fact, there's a huge, gorgeous family portrait on canvas above their fireplace. I don't know that I have that in me exactly, but I definitely want to add some more photos and put more reminders of what really matters within our view. We don't have a fireplace anyway. A home is always a work in progress.
Back to our new and improved laundry room, it's tiny but I managed a few shots. A wide-angle lens would have been helpful, but this was the best I could do. Here is the view as you walk in from the garage.
Here's the view as you're walking to the garage. Cleaning and laundry supplies are tucked away in cabinets now instead of sitting on a wide shelf above the washer and dryer.
The alcove is the best. There's a practical counter, the cabinets hold our sports equipment, there are baskets for our shoes, and I absolutely love my laundry sorter. It makes laundry day bearable!
Last but not least, a curious Matthew was wondering why in the world his weird mother was taking photos in the laundry room.
