When I started typing the title to this post, I felt a little ridiculous. Am I really about to show pictures of my laundry room? In blog-land?
The Virgo in me actually loves to see other laundry rooms - so many bloggers have created amazing spaces for laundry, ironing, folding, storage and cleaning. Our room isn't quite that big, but I am proud of the transformation!
You have already seen our dining room here; the bathroom/laundry
room is directly off of that room. With a little boy and a dog in our
house, this room get a lot of use.
As you can see, our washer & dryer are normally hidden by curtains. Closing those curtains allows me to hide the mess that normally sits on top of the washer & dryer
Here are some pictures from the bathroom/laundry room renovation. I'm
not sure that I have a picture before we started demolition, but suffice
it to say this bathroom was almost as bad as our full bathroom.
While it would have made sense to do the larger bathroom first,
renovating the half bathroom was all we could fit in the budget after we bought our
home. You can see the a little bit of the original wall color, the original vanity and the two (very different) floor tiles the previous owners had chosen.
Because we were unable to use the engineered hardwoods on the riser for the toilet, we chose tumbled travertine. OK...chose would be the wrong word. This tile was left over from my parents home renovation, so we took it from them. It just so happened to be just what we were looking for!
The little door you see in the last picture is the entrance to our crawl space. We framed it out and painted it the same color as the new beadboard so that it didn't stick out quite as much. With some paint, new floors, tile, beadboard, and a pedestal sink... we had a brand new laundry room. I love how this room turned out!
