The small town Colorado girl who’s obsessed with home and everything that entails! I’m a creative, a decorator, a day dreamer, a huge fan of scones, and I’m passionate about loving where I live and making a home.
If you remember the first tour I shared of The Willow House, downstairs there was a teeny, tiny bedroom with it’s own walk in closet. Big enough for just about a twin sized bed, it was another room that didn’t really make sense. And why the smallest room in the house was the one with a walk in closet, we’ll never really understand. The one thing we did know though, from the first time walking through the house, was that we’d be turning this room into the laundry room. I guess I’ve really been working on the laundry room design plan since that first day, knowing things were going to change.
With the existing laundry space in the garage taking up needed parking space, there was no way we weren’t going to make the change. After deciding exactly how we were going to rework the closet space, we started deciding on the design plan. First on the list, was creating the new floor plan layout so we could have plumbing and electric installed for the washer and dryer.
I’ll get into the specifics of everything we’ll be doing in another post, but here’s the layout we landed on…
(Please note, this isn’t to scale, just a rough drawing to show the layout change.)
We really wanted to have as much cabinet space as possible. This house really lacks storage, so the laundry room is going to also have our pantry area. We’re planning on having a sink, plenty of counter space (that will also extend over the washer and dryer), and then space to air dry clothes.
Here’s our plan for the design:
So there you have it… our plan for the laundry room. I’m really looking forward to bringing all of these elements together!
Below are a few inspirational pictures that help show (kinda) what I’m envisioning.
Next up, let’s talk about the laundry room demo!
