Refreshed Laundry Room
If you can't afford to move pipes, keep the sink as-is and dress it up with a fabric skirt attached with double-sided Velcro.
Sarah Hartill gave her basement laundry room a quick and easy makeover by covering an old sink stand with a pretty floral skirt and adding a graphic print rug to warm up the cold floor tile. A countertop built to fit over the laundry machines provides a folding surface, while simple stainless steel shelves store various supplies.
"With a basement, you're dealing with these little tiny windows, so you're limited on natural light," says Sarah. "I would lean towards a combination of potlights and task lights."
