Laundry Never Ends
To stack or not to stack…..that was the question.
I had just recently replaced the flooring throughout the first floor. The laundry room would be my next remodel stop. I chose it next because I had just ordered a new washer dryer set and I have a real hard time putting something nice and new in something old and ugly.
My first goal was to start with a clean slate so I removed the washtub. This gave me the opportunity to start from scratch. Speaking of Scratch…. I on this project I scratched and scratched my head trying to decide what layout scheme to use.
A few weeks later, when the washer and dryer were finally delivered, I still wasn’t exactly sure what I wanted to do but I had been looking into stacking my washer and dryer. I had never stacked my washer and dryer before so I figured I would try it
for a few months before I made my final decision. If I stacked it, I could have basket storage space, but less, folding space. If I unstacked It, I would get more folding space and no basket space……..Awwwww (which one!) I finally flipped a coin (ok not literally), and went with stacked. It was time to move on with my life.
I had envisioned my laundry room this way originally. I saw a stacked washer and dryer on the left side of the room, with storage above. A butcher block counter over an open cabinet with laundry baskets for sorting. A sink over cabinet (instead of the useless wash
tub), cabinet makes for extra storage, and a wall cabinet above the sink for, once again, more storage. I added molding to give the cabinets that finished touch.
To give the washer and dryer a cleaner look I enclosed it. This gave me the
ability to hang a closet pole between it and the wall cabinet so that I could line dry delicates above my folding table.
Lastly, I added a few decorations and voila! … there you have it.
This was my vision, and I must say, it turned out exactly as I had imagined it!!!
