Laundry Rooms

I really love doing laundry. That's weird right? Granted, I don't have kids yet...so it's just Husby clothes and my clothes and the occasional doggie related item. But I love it. I love the smell. I love the feeling. And I don't mind folding! Now, putting away...downfall of mine! haha!

It was this post that got me thinking about nice lookin' laundry rooms...

Anyways. I have a Laundry Nook...it's not really a room, nor will it be a room when we are finished with the basement remodel.

This is my Laundry Nook...



...and this is pretty much how it will look with the remodel is complete...



So as you can see it's basically a 10 by 10 space with two and a half walls to it. If you look in this picture above, where that column is...from the column to the wall at the right there will be floor cabinets with a counter top...to provide some clothes folding space and storage. I am very limited on what I can put over the washer and drying because they are lifted off the ground about a foot and a half...and there will be a bulkhead to contend with. So I need to find space where I can!

Here is what I want in a laundry room...or nook in my case:
  • Storage
  • Space to hang clothes
  • A folding area
  • Nice clean, fresh feel
  • Pretty colors
  • A Rug
  • Fold-away Ironing board
Anyway...I would LOVE to have the laundry on the main floor...or at least the same floor as the bedrooms (in any given home that I would own) but that is just a dream, as is having a laundry room that looks like any of these below...

The stainless steel one...LOVE it!! And I love the colors of the second one!


These two are very nice...although the second one is a little too crazy elegant for a laundry room!


These are nice...the first one looks so clean and fresh!


Windows!! That would be a great touch in the LR...I only have one basement hopper window!


Lovely as well...and the second one works in a really small space like mine! I love the colors too!


This one seems to be the most like mine. Space wise. Although I still don't think I can swing cabinets above the machines, I guess we will just have to see once it's all done!


So do you have any favorite laundry rooms? Is yours your dream room?? What do you look for in a laundry room?

We are literally in the throes of doing a laundry room...more like closet I guess. Since we've lived in our house it's been in our kitchen and we're finally moving it OUT! Woot!
