Whoever said the laundry room has to be dull, boring and in general a forgotten space? I love my laundry room. It houses my hobbies and provides a room for storage of assorted miscellaneous items, besides the obvious of having a washer and dryer for the cleaning of clothes.
It doesn't matter if you have a basement laundry room, a dedicated room for a laundry room or a closet. You can make something of this space. Take a look around. Can you make your laundry space more efficient by adding an inexpensive cupboard from IKEA? Or a shelf from Home Depot? How about a simple decorative jar from Walmart for your powdered laundry detergent?
Take a look at your laundry room space. It's an easy target for the home decorating bug. Try your skills here and build on them. It's a haven for both making a spot in your home brighter and more efficient.
