Our laundry room is double-duty as a mud room because our garage leads to it, and we need to go through it to enter the house. It has been a constant struggle for us during the winter when our shoes trap nothing but muddy water into the room. To make things worse, our tiny closet inside the laundry room is so full that Anthony has to park his ginormous shoes on the door mat all the time! And they get stuck underneath the doors every time we open and close them, and make an even bigger mess on the floor!
There I finally had it with our laundry room. This is the plan I drew up in the PPT for our future laundry/mud room. More storage, multi-task, and more functional are my key objectives. The garage door into the house is on the adjacent wall to this one, and I am adding a "Shoe Cabinet" right by the door so that we could put shoes in there as soon as we enter the room.
Here is a list of things I will need for this makeover project:
- Custom cabinetry and hardware
- Stainless steel sink & faucet
- Tension rod
- Backsplash??? (is it too much to add backsplash in a laundry room?)
This is going to be a contractor plus DIY project, so I am yet to find out how much in total it will cost. I will post some updates later. Stay tuned...
