Going along with our basement and sleeping themes today (because you sleep in clothes/pajamas and washers and dryers are often in basements? I know, it's a stretch...), I thought I'd share this lovely laundry room* makeover from Curbly fave Charles & Hudson!
In preparation for the arrival of their new baby, Timothy Dahl, the founder and editor of Charles & Hudson (and all-around great guy), decided to tackle a laundry room makeover. The old space was functional in the most minimal way possible. Sure it had a washer and dryer (both incredibly old, not to mention huge energy/water hogs), but there was no space for sorting and folding. The scary utility sink was too grimy to actually use for hand-washing and the room had also become a messy, catch-all storage closet. Bad news for a growing family with growing laundry needs!
The new space is not only bright, clean, and full of Scandinavian-inspired goodness, it's also way more functional. A new shelving system keeps supplies organized, the cleaned up sink is ready for even the most delicate of hand-wash-only items, and there's plenty of space to sort, fold, and hang laundry! As for those new Energy Star rated appliances? The icing on the cake!
Check out more of this makeover, including some great DIY projects (like the chalkboard and antler coat rack) and painting tips, over on Charles & Hudson!
