Well I'm calling it: my laundry room is finally DONE! This is the before look: plain and empty, with no storage equipement.
My goals were to organize some storage solutions, hide the ugly water heater and electric box and change the light fixture. I started by installing a towel rack and a wire basket to dry dish clothes and hold Ziplocs, cling film and foil paper. I also put some hooks to hold bags and my grocery cart. The litter box is also hidden behind the door.
Next to the water heater, there was just enough room to fit an old Ikea cart. It now holds cleaning products and cat food. On top of the water heater, I installed two Ikea shelves to hold bottles and paper stuff like tissues and paper towels.
Behind the pillar, I keep the ironing board as well as grocery bags that I use to take the recycling downstairs to the building's bin. The space between the wall and the dryer was just wide enough for me to install a few hooks to hold the broom and mop, as well as hide a few folding chairs that I use when company comes over.
The electric box is covered with magnets that hold souvenirs from my last trip. On the door, I installed a vintage ACME sign that I painted red.
Finally, I made (by hand) a curtain using fabric from ReproDepot, and had a nice print framed to add a pop of colour. The last touch was the fixture from Hip Haven. I like that the light is soft and highlights the fabric and print.
And voilà! A laundry room nice enough to have guests sleep in it. Well, almost.
