2017 is upon us and that means another year of projects at the McClelland household (much to my husband’s dismay), and while we don’t plan any major updates to our laundry room any time soon, it hasn’t stopped me from pinning some of my favorite rooms I’ve spotted on Pinterest.
I’d love to add some storage, a small locker room area to catch our shoes, keys, coats as we come in from the garage, and storage, did I mention storage? It’s also a place where Lola’s food, water, and bed live, so carving out a little space for her would be ideal (I love how Damsel in Dior hung photographs at her pup’s eye level – such an easy and fun way to add personality to a space).
I spent a weekend earlier this year painting the room from Tavern Taupe to Revere Pewter. However; I may paint it all white in the coming winter months, with no natural light, it still feels very dark and enclosed, and I hate walking into a space and feeling claustrophobic. Next up is the trim and backside of the door (I painted the front of the door when I tackled the trim/cabinets in my kitchen/entry hallway).
But for now, a girl can dream…
This laundry room makeover from Chris Loves Julia may be my favorite, their room is small and similar in size, it’s simple, provides multiple storage options, and they even managed to put a small sink in! Small space goals right here!
This laundry room from I Heart Organizing checks all the boxes for me. It’s bright, light, and airy. Not only provides storage, but a rod to hang up clothes as well. This would require a little bit more of a labor intensive reno, but would be SO worth it!
It doesn’t take much to make me happy, another laundry room with wood flooring, a bright rug, butcher block counter tops, and white cabinets! Plus, you know I’m not afraid of a little wallpaper, and this bird print is so fun and playful!
If we take the time and effort to add-in cabinetry, I’m not opposed to adding a little color into the mix or even some shiplap as seen in this Kate Marker Interiors laundry room!
While there are just the two of us right now, we could definitely stand for a locker area in our laundry room. We enter from our garage more so than our front door to come in and out of the house, so it’d be more convenient to have a place to store our coats, shoes, and bags after we come home from work every day! This storage area from Studio McGee is simply dreamy (but isn’t all of their work just as dreamy?!)
Here’s to project dreaming in 2017!
