I seriously cannot even function to type these words because today our kitchen was featured at Good Housekeeping! What in the world!?!? THANK YOU beyond words, Lauren!
This post is a little late because I meant to have it up yesterday but we had a tough day as parents (I will post soon) but you know our little man is notorious for teaching us lessons. (Side note: I thought about dedicating a day of the week to those lessons…is that something you’re interested in? Please tell me in the comments!)
Anyway, we haven’t made much progress but we do have some great ideas that I CANNOT wait to share with you!
What we know is that we want two cabinets with a rod in between, something similar to the ones we have pinned. We know we want a countertop and are considering plywood in lieu of an actual countertop piece. And we know we want some corner shelves for that odd nook.
Here’s where most of my inspiration is coming from:
Follow Amber – Restless Arrow’s board Laundry Room on Pinterest.
But here is where I need YOUR help! Where do you actually put the dirty clothes and clothes that come out of the dryer (not that we wouldn’t fold them IMMEDIATELY!)…Do you have hampers in your rooms? Do you fold as soon as they come out of the dryer?
Please tell me what works for your family! We need some suggestions! We’ve got to do something about this situation!
Thanks, again, Linda, for hosting! Be sure to check out all of the bloggers participating here!
Have a great weekend, y’all!!
Congratulations on your kitchen feature! Good luck this week.
Thank you so much, Linda!!!!
I honestly fold my laundry when it comes out of the dryer. It sounds totally unrealistic, but I honestly don’t have any place to stash it so I just deal with it right away. If I don’t have time to fold, I don’t take it out of the dryer. My laundry space is very similarly sized to yours and I think you will really like having the cabinets above your machines. I’m in a rental that has cabinets clear to the ceiling and it’s awesome, simply because we don’t have a lot of storage. Having all of your laundry supplies up and out of the way will give you a great spot to fold, or you could be like me and I drag it all to the other room and dump it on my bed :).
Thanks for your honesty, Elizabeth! I’ve got to get better!!! Thanks for the encouragement!
Fellow laundry room ORCer here. We’re fortunate that we have space for two baskets in the laundry room. I use them both for dirty clothes (sorting either delicates and regulars or darks and lights). We keep a third basket in our bedroom closet for dirty clothes, and I bring it down to the laundry room when it’s full. Once I empty it in the laundry room, I’ll load it up with the clean clothes (we hang dry as opposed to the dryer) and bring them back upstairs. I usually do folding in our bedroom. That way it’s easy to put the clothes away right away since the dresser and closet are right there.
That’s a great idea!! So smart. 🙂
