Small Laundry & Craft Room

A basic laundry room cleans up its act with new storage options and a colourful look.

This laundry room doubles as a storage room, craft area and wrapping centre. Cabinetry built along the wall opposite the appliances holds lightbulbs, batteries, extra garbage bags and other household supplies. A pegboard outfitted with hanging containers and small rods keeps craft and wrapping materials organized while an adjoining corkboard displays inspirational photos for craft and reno projects. Open shelves were placed high on the walls to add storage space without making the small room feel closed in; bins and baskets are used here to keep small items corralled.
