Laundry Room

Laundry Room

My laundry room is just big enough for the washer and dryer. I installed some additional shelving over the appliances which works pretty well but it is open and never looks nice. Luckily, I can just close the two folding door that close in this laundry cubby, but sometimes I just want it to look nice for me.

Small rugs did pretty well too. I didn’t have too many but enough to make the space bag worth it. I started with more rugs but donated a lot of them knowing I would just be wasting storage space if I held onto them. I have room to expand if...
