When we were house hunting in California, last year, I fell in love with our house the minute we walked over the threshold. I loved the double door entrance, the high ceilings, the size of the bedrooms and the newly updated kitchen. I was so smitten by the idea of moving and buying our home that I overlooked one detail… the laundry room. It’s really small. I measured it after moving in. It measures 6’5″ by 5’5″. It’s a glorified closet with a door coming off the garage and a door into the house. Needless to say, there is a lot of spatial interference with a set of front loaders and two other doors swinging about. The first thing I did was remove the door connecting the laundry room to the hallway into the house.
I loved taking the sheets off of my bed and using the fitted sheet as a long flowing wig.
I would secure one of the corners of the sheet onto my head
and wrap it around my body like “Rapunzel”. As a very imaginative child,
I would wear my wig around the house and talk in random accents
until it was my turn to put my laundry in the washing machine.
I would often turn on my record player and dance to ABBA
and I usually was having so much fun that
one of my parents would have to get after me to start my laundry.
Maybe I should buy an ABBA album to help on those
slow laundry days around my house lately!

Inspiration Number 2 review: I love the white cabinets, the folding counter, and the color scheme! This laundry room design was done very well by HOME WITH BAXTER and their laundry room update keeps popping up on my Pinterest.
Here are some other photos of their laundry space. I love the bead board, the contrasting and crisp colors, and I really love the hanging rack. Note to self: “Get one of those!”

I hope you have found some inspiration in regards to your laundry space or another space you are working on in your home. I’m excited to get started on my project here. An organized laundry space will provide a great amount of peace and accomplishment in my world.
Before I start I’ve got to get caught up on some laundry that has piled up over summer vacation or I will be spending weekends at the laundromat. I’m brewing a pot of coffee and downloading ABBA’s “Arrival” album for more fuel to get going! Note to self: “You can do this!”
Happy laundry adventures!
