Here’s a little ‘before’ glimpse into our laundry room… rather, area. I really did mean ‘little’. It’s located in a pass-through so it’s really hard to get the angle for a full shot.
I’ve never used a stacking system before, so wasn’t sure how that would go since I always use my dryer surface for folding and placing finished laundry. I like a spot to hang-dry garments, and of course need somewhere for the detergents to hide out too.
Can you tell what’s missing here?
If you guessed storage, you guessed right.
So here’s what we did for storage. We wanted to keep the area feeling fresh and light, and tried to avoid the boxed in feeling a built-in cabinet system would create.
Did you notice the trolley? It’s a small 4-shelf unit that fits perfectly in the space and gives me that little extra surface I’m used to having at my fingertips. And the best part, in true re-design fashion, it’s a piece we already had from before!
Here’s a closer look at the new storage tucked beside the washer and dryer.
This space was otherwise treated as dead space!
I still haven’t figured out my hang-to-dry system yet… have tried a few ideas, but I think I just need to put in some laundry time and get the feel for this new space. I know something will work that works for me too!
Oh, and I’m cheating a little bit on the detergent and product storage. I’m extending the laundry room options into the cabinet space of the powder room you see in the background of the first photo.
The best part, it’s easy to dismantle and take with us to wherever we go next, and filling the holes it leaves behind are a breeze. Brush a little touch-up paint over the filled holes, and you’d never know this system was here!
So, what do you think of this quick, affordable storage solution?
