Our laundry room is starting to shape up to the room of my dreams! In case you missed it… we started from scratch with this room. Previously the washer and dryer was directly next to the dishwasher and in the same cubby room as the refrigerator as well. We knocked down the wall dividing that room from the rest of the kitchen to make the kitchen larger and then added on this small room off the back for a separate laundry room. Until now, the room remained a little white box receiving none of the love that we gave to the rest of the house.
I’d like to think we made up for it by going all out with this stunning wallpaper. The best part is how you see it peeking through the doorway from the kitchen and the green of the leaves in the paper compliments the green of our base cabinets (which is called “pigeon” by Farrow & Ball).
We also installed a base cabinet, from Ikea, to house laundry detergent and various cleaning supplies (you can see it in the top photo) and we customized a walnut butcher block (it is the oversized one that is usually meant for a kitchen island, also from Ikea) by cutting it down to fit wall to wall in the space and create a nice surface to fluff and fold.
To finish the space off I’d still like to put up some shelves, have some kind of hanging storage, and find a rug. Getting close though…
