Lately it seems everywhere I look everyone is redoing their laundry. At the moment our laundry is in the back of our unused garage. We plan to fix it up a little but with a lack of funds I think this reno is going to be all about pretty, vintage, and making do with paint, rather than stone benchtops and glass splashbacks. Our last place had a laundry cupboard which was okay when it was just the two of us, but by the time we moved it was completely inadequate, and I did spend quite a bit of time fantasizing about the laundry I wanted.
The problems with the room is that it has no window, exposed brickwork (not the nice kind), a toilet in the corner with the most revolting tiles ever. The good thing is that it will make a very large laundry, in fact really more of a utility room. I really think some new floor tiles and a coat of fresh paint would make a huge difference. Maybe some better lighting as well.
Psychologically it houses the door to the under house area which was where the rats were living and though I know that there aren’t any there now (trust me I check for signs) I also feel sometimes feel a bit anxious in there.
Here are some of my favourite shots from around the web
What do you think? Should laundries be pretty too, or is it a waste of time?
