The Other Half of the Laundry room (The Dreaming Stage)

So you guys saw me reveal the right side of the laundry room a couple of weeks ago. Well there’s an entire side (you know the side with the washer and dryer!) that still needs to be made over:0)

Here it is when we first moved in. Not a lot has changed except that it’s completely covered in laundry at the moment:0) Great space. Awesome storage. Big sink. NO design:0)

So here’s what I’m thinking.

I need some extended counter space. Something were I can unload the clothes and have sort of mail and key drop space. This is where we enter the home after the grocery store, after school, after a night out, after church. This is our after spot:0)

I love this. I think I want to keep the existing sink, rip off the counter top and make something custom so I can fit in some front loaders that I don’t have right now.:0)

Speaking of counter tops:0) How about these? Home Depot has a great quartz selection. I had it in my first house and I LOVED it. Super low maintenance and easy to keep clean. I love the marble look without the marble fuss.


Then there’s the backsplash. Certainly not necessary. But I think it would add a lot of character to this room we always see!

I love these cement tiles from the Cement Tile Shop. Just beautiful.

Of course I’ll want to paint the cabinets. I’m actually thinking about gray. But white is ALWAYS an option. Always.

I also want to move them up and add some shelves for laundry detergent and all the other essentials. This is my dream:0)

One washer, two dryers (because the drying cycle takes about twice as long as the wash cycle).

Oh you too?

The floor is up for debate as well. After looking at those cement tiles I think I might love something like that on the floor instead.

Here’s to dreaming. Anything your dreaming about lately?


  1. First of all, I’m super jealous of how big your laundry is!! What in the what what?! That’s awesome! And your ideas are definitely are fabulous. =] We are expecting our first baby, due in just nine weeks, and the Hubs and his dad are painting the nursery on Sunday. That’s what I’m dreaming about… having the nursery DONE!

    • Oh how I would LOVE to design a nursery again! You must be having so much fun. I think that is one of the most special rooms to design! I bet it will be beautiful girl! Do you know what your having or are you going to be surprised?

  2. This side of your laundry is IDENTICAL to mine, except we have thermafoil cabinets. I ripped the thermafoil off yesterday and exposed the MDF; now I dream of what color to paint them every time I walk by, which is how I found your blog! Cant wait to see what you do!
