Spring Cleaning ~ Inspirational Laundry Rooms

Photo from Domino
Though it's been raining hard here in San Francisco,
it's hard to imagine that Spring is already coming! I
can't believe it's already March. With spring comes
spring cleaning so I thought I would do a lineup on
laundry rooms and spaces. When I was young, I used
to adore jumping into a fresh laundry pile that had
just come out of the dryer because it was so warm
and because it smelled like laundry detergent.

I love the color of the laundry space above. Although
it's small, there are racks and hooks that utilize the
space well.

The laundry room above is bright an airy with
a ton of storage space. Don't we all wish we had
such a spacious laundry room.

The above laundry space is a very practical
one that many of us would have. I love that
the owner put beadboard to the walls and
a curtain to draw over the open shelves.

House to Home

Designer washer and dryer anyone?

This laundry room looks to be ultra modern and
state of the art with front loading machines, stainless
steel surfaces and a metal back splash treatment.
Very cool indeed.

Ever thought about wallpapering your laundry
room? Why not indeed. Here's a great example.

Bella Design Team Blog

One of the owners of Bella Design Team installed
this super cozy laundry area in her garage. I can't
even tell it's in the garage! Great isn't it?

Found this super chic laundry room on Flickr (Saucy Dragonfly).
This laundry room is on a landing but it didn't stop the owner
from installing a glam chandelier with wallpaper and beadboard.

House to Home

For organization, all you need are hooks, shelves
and a rack with laundry bins is super useful.
In fact, you can find racks just like it below.

Basic Elements Ultra Laundry
Station for $59.99 from Amazon.

Laundry Station: Organize It All

I actually like this square one as it's a bit different.
It includes a flat table on top for folding.

Here's a super bright and cheery laundry room.

There's a whole art to laundry and keeping our
clothes clean and preserved. I'm a sucker for
books with beautiful photos and tips/instructions
for everything.

Anywho, hope you were inspired for any of you
who were thinking of a laundry space makeover.

front loaded washers everywhere - can'f felt with those!

Margarita said...

Wow, from the very first one you had my attention. These are gorgeous rooms and truly inspiring to make a chore into something beautiful.

Visual Vamp said...

Cute post!
Love the wallpaper print front loader.
Now if you could just send someone over to the laundry ha ha
xo xo

Jan said...

This is the stuff of pure fantasy for me - oh to be organized like this!

The Goods Design said...

These are gorgeous! A beautified laundry room might have to be my next project in my home!

Creme de la Mode said...

Wow, I've officially reached housewife status when I'm giddy over posts of laundry areas. LOVERLY!!

DesignTies said...

I CANNOT convince my hubby to go with front loaders, even though I keep trying to appeal to his cheap (he would say frugal!) sensibilites about how they're much more economical than the W/D we have now. Oh well, at least he agreed to make over the laundry room -- that's a start!!

The laundry area on the landing is unusual -- I've never seen that before. But hey, why not glam it up with a chandelier and wallpaper! :-)

I love the pink wallpapered laundry room. My last LR was wallpapered in great big yellow checks. I was thinking about painting my current LR the robins egg blue like your first picture. It would blend well with the two bedrooms next to it. But, I could accessorize with pink. Mmmmm, might be a plan. Regarding front loaders. . . yep, no felting, also I've only heard nightmares from my friends who have them. FYI

Brilliant Asylum said...

This is great. I seriously have the scariest basement laundry room--more of a tomb. I am so jealous of all of these lucky homeowners with a proper laundry area.

maison21 said...

i consider myself lucky to just have space (barely) for a washer and dryer. i couldn't imagine life without them!

Great post for inspiration, and that's what I need before we start doing up our laundry room. So thanks!

Corie Drane said...

That Bella Design Team laundry is so beautiful! I'd love to have that kind of room in our house in NY. But I'd like it to be inside the house, not in the garage. Haven't thought of upgrading our laundry room 'coz we've been relying on some services lately. Hubby and I did the spring cleaning, though. I've seen different laundry station commercials online, too. I think they're very useful and deal for small rooms.

Totally free Proxy Servers are utilised for anonymous searching. Most frequent utilization of free proxy server is to bypass the school/workplace or any other place's security limitations and entry unrestricted sites. But [url= ]proxies Buy Proxies Org [/url] servers should be utilised with caution. If utilized without safety measures, it can end result in huge decline as in comparison to edge of browsing the internet anonymously. There are two ways by means of which you can cover your id (your IP address) when browsing the world wide web. Very first and the most cheap way is to use totally free proxy server. There are many windows and linux proxy internet sites obtainable on the internet which lets you use their providers totally free of charge. The other alternative for hiding your identity is to use compensated software. The IP hiding software program, adjustments your IP handle constantly to allow you browse web anonymously.

There are handful of crucial things you need to maintain in head when using totally free proxy servers.

one.) Look at out for your safety

Do not give out any delicate information these kinds of as your login details or credit score card information when utilizing different proxy servers simply because when you use totally free proxy server, all the data you supply on any site is 1st sent to totally free proxy server and then to the internet site server. So all the information go through the cost-free proxy server and most of the time it is unencrypted, exposing your sensitive info for prospective misuse.

Paid out application are considerably much better in terms and conditions of stability. There methods are created to conceal your IP and then discard all your details with out any human involvement.

two.) Balance and Availability

There are many totally free proxy server web sites but most of them are not steady and are not accessible each time you pay a visit to them. This issue is not very considerable with compensated computer software.

three.) Speed of Browsing

When you use any proxy server for hiding your IP, you can sense the slow speed of searching instantaneously. Though there are good websites available for anonymous searching but they are very hard to uncover. Also, velocity is not regular it depends mostly on load on their servers. At moments you do get very good browsing velocity but it's not consistent. Again, compensated software for hiding IP are significantly far better at searching velocity. As they charge for their solutions, they ensure that the user experience is better and you do not get gradual velocity while browsing the world wide web through their computer software.

They are also great when you find a quality one that masks your place of origin. When hunting for a On the internet Proxy make sure it has Java installed so you can observe videos. As you can at times have your nation of origin cloaked but if java does not perform it is not considerably use.
