Laundry Room Makeover

With The help of my wonderful husband we got to work building and making a space that works much better for our busy family and the tons of laundry that I do each week.  

There were two main issues with this room, storage and a place to fold my laundry.  While this is a large space it is a multi purpose space so it also houses a treadmill and doubles as a workout room as well. So it was making a space that allowed for each one to be done in here.  

We starting with getting a stacking kit for the washer and dryer and moving a few outlets over this allowed for a ton of room to do the built in.  
I bought baskets for each one of the kids this is where their socks, undies and jammies will go and I have made it their responsibility to come and get it and unload it.  Lets see how that goes, lol. 

I wanted storage but I didn't want to see it so we build this cabinet and found some doors that I repainted at habitat for humanity for a mere $5.00 each.  The cabinet is pretty deep so it gives me a load of storage.   I hang just about anything we wear so having this hanging rack makes a big difference, no more piles of clothes on the floor while I get everything on hangers.  

Even though I really do not like doing laundry this space has already been broken in and I know it will make my life much easier.  Know if only I could teach the kids to wear less clothes throughout the week, okay a girl can dream can't she.

Great great great room! You will enoj it!
I wish I have place enough for something like that. So far, I can only dream that my kids don't use up as many clothes as they do -- just like you said.
Keep on dreaming ;)

What an amazing laundry room!!!
I'd give anything to have that ( instead of in a dark 100 year old cellar lol )

You have given me a serious case of laundry room envy!!! Well done! Hope you can stop by the enchanted oven to say hi.

It looks great! It's such a good idea to really think about what you need for the room and how to make it work for you.
