Decor inspiration:The Organised Laundry Room ....

Morning all!
Now I don't know about anyone else but I seem to spend half my days trotting in and out of my laundry/utility room, either putting clothes/towels in the wash or folding them into baskets ready for ironing! Add in the appalling weather of late when no washing actually makes it out to the line, and you have a room that resembles a warzone! 
******
Well another rainy Monday morning was all it took to spur me into action and declare war on my laundry room!! I 'm now exhausted from painting it and I was actually shattered before I started anything at the amount of rubbish I had to clear from the space! To spur me on I kept looking at these gorgeous pinterest photos whilst having my endless tea and coffee breaks, hopefully some of the inspiration will appear in my room over the next few days...






Now if I can persuade my DH to put up another few shelves for me on his day off, I'll be well on my way to getting some organization sorted, and maybe a little bed for the dog also whilst he is at it :) err.. think I would definitely be pushing my luck on that score! At least all the paint rolling has given my upper arms a really good workout so all is not in vain! If anyone has any great tips on how to keep the laundry under control, they would be most welcome:)  Mine seem to need three towels each when they have a shower.... not good for helping any basket overload!!

Hope you are all having a good week:)

  1. Oh that would be a dream come true - a room fully dedicated to laundry. But mine would slowly descend into chaos as I know it would eventually become the wardrobe overflow because I would just see it as a valid room for clothes to hide out in! No clever tips from me - I would love some myself!

  2. Oh how I wish my laundry room was as neat and tidy as the first gorgeous picture! I love the French one too with the pretty jars of soap powder - now there's an idea!

  5. I've been making plans for our home but didn't think too much about the laundry (other than making sure that there was one!), thanks for reminding me to put that on my list too!

  7. Laundry and a wet summer - not a good combination. I just keep at it - always put one more load on than I think I need to...and I make everyone put their own clothes away now. It takes me too long! X

  9. I really want to fix up my laundry room - it's in the basement and it's in the one room that isn't finished and it feels like a dungeon, lol. I might have to work on that this winter!

    I want the dog in the last picture too, he he.

  11. What nice rooms you posted...they are great! I'm amazed at the amount of laundry I do each day. With a family of only 3, I don't have a clue where it comes from!!

  12. The pictures are gorgeous but I do hope they only have them looking this good for the photo shoot. I tidy my laundry room and within a week it looks like a bomb hit it. If you find the tidy secret please let me know.

  13. I don't even have a utility room, its the first time I haven't but I had to make a sacrifice when I bought this house as it had the extra bedroom I needed. Love these pictures and I am always trotting out to the garage which houses my tumble dryer!

  14. I've just got a (not terribly great) washing machine in the kitchen, so these images of proper laundries are have an almost sacred beauty to me!

    My only laundry tip is - do it every single day! Never be afraid of a small load. A backlog is horror to me! xxx

  15. Because that room can get disorganized very quickly. Everything has a place in mine. HAHAHA

  19. Hi Anne,

    Have heard on the news, of how much rain you have been having there and can be difficult getting laundry dry.
    As for the towels that is needed to take a shower, sounds a lot like my kids.

    Happy Wednesday
    Hugs

  25. Oh how I desire a gorgeous, organized laundry room. The second to last picture, with the little peek of special wallpaper in the one corner is my favorite. I wish I could get a good look at that lovely wallpaper!
