Give your home a luxurious feel with a beautiful laundry room. Even if you hate doing the laundry, you cannot deny that there IS a certain amount of satisfaction from transforming a bunch of dirty things into fresh and fragrant clothes!
Put these items in your laundry room and feel the difference!
-a few plants
-a rug or piece of carpet to stand on
-an ironing area
-large folding table
-framed art or prints
-a pretty dish to catch clutter and extraneous pocketed items
-a trash can (continually clean the lint from the dryer)
-GOOD LIGHTING, lamps, etc.!!!
-a bulletin board for laundry codes
-decorative tins/boxes for laundry detergent and soap
-a clothes line
-a rolling cart for extra supplies
If you can, put the laundry room on the same floor as the bedrooms. A laundry chute is an amazing laundry room organizing tool. It so much easier to streamline the laundering process with these two luxuries!
Find a good carpenter or contractor who can do this for you. You can find a prescreened, quality contractor at: http://www.best-organizing-products-superstore.com/nationalcontractors
Also, good lighting is perhaps THE most essential laundry room organizing tool. I recently found a great handy man who installed more lighting in my laundry room and what a difference it made. Now I can actually see my laundry!
