Laundry Room Storage

I’m in storage  heaven!
Hubby and I worked on putting storage cabinets in the wonderful GINORMOUS laundry room at the house in Hooterville this weekend.
This long blank wall went from this…

to this.

I wanted to utilize this wall to its fullest potential so we used one 48 inch cabinet in the center and two 36 inch cabinets…one placed on each side of the 48 incher.  These cabinets are from Lowe’s.

The shelves are all adjustable so that will give me  lots of storage flexibility and I’m sure it will be  fun getting everything all organized neatly.

The cabinets  flanking the washer/dryer on the opposite side of the room are “create your own” stacking modular units.  The unit on the left is  two “floor cabinets” (with doors) separated by one open “shelf unit” in the middle.   On the right is a “wardrobe” cabinet stacked on top of one “3-drawer unit.”   It will be nice that when clothes come out of the dryer, I can hang them right up on the convenient hanger rod in the wardrobe cabinet.

I couldn’t get the exact cabinet configurations I wanted all from one source so I ordered the modular cabinets  from the JCPenney catalog online site.  The style and color of them  are almost identical to the cabinets from Lowe’s so I don’t think anyone will  realize they aren’t from the same manufacturer.
We still have some electrical plug issues to deal with on the washer/dryer wall and I need to decide on a window treatment.
I  finally found an old farm table to use for folding clothes.  It will be undergoing a little cosmetic metamorphosis sometime in the near future.

And I’m still working on the cabinet configuration for the wall in the photo below but  upper and lower cabinets, a sink, and something to hide the hot water heater is planned so I hope to have that finished and ready to share with you in the next few weeks.

Your laundry room is coming together and it's going to be the greatest thing to have all of that space and storage! I'm a bit jealous but I'll get over it! Can't wait to see it all finished and decorated. Glad you found the table - curious what you will do to it. ~Adrienne~

Connie said...

Shari,
Your laundry room is TDF! Can you tell me what color are the walls? Is that a shade of aqua? Its hard to tell on my monitor. Would you mind sharing the color? Love the farm table and all your new cabinets. You are doing a great job.

Hugs,
Connie

Shari @ My Cottage of Bliss said...

Hi Connie! Yes, the walls are aqua...this "pink girl's" new favorite color. :)

It's Valspar paint (Lowe's) and the color is called "Aqua Frost."

Suzanne said...

You have the ultimate laundry room! I'm totally jealous of that table, too.

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...
