We’ll just say progress is progress when it comes to the laundry room remodel. As in not much progress has been made this week! I finally got a hold on my nasty allergies and then Liv has had a fever/runny nose since Tuesday! Eek, so time has really slipped away from us Week 2 for the one room challenge.

If you want to go back and catch up on some of the previous updates on the Landry room remodel – here are the links.

Week 1

Laundry Room Progress

So far we have removed everything from the laundry room, patched all the holes and started painting. We have yet to tile, but the plan is to start tiling sometimes next week. If you’ve followed along in my instagram stories you’ve seen the dilemma with rearranging the laundry units.

Laundry Room Design

I made a rendering of the most functional idea we have for the new laundry room configuration. We will be removing the current cabinets from their location and stacking them on top of each other to create more space for drying clothes and adding a little bit more storage too! We really want to cut costs where we can and reuse these oak cabinets. Also, they were custom built by the couple who built our home in 1994 and they have held up so well!

Cabinet Design

After measuring out the cabinets, all 3 will fit stacked with maybe an inch clearing the ceiling. With that space above the cabinets I’ll add a piece of trim to give them a built in look.

I removed the blinds off the window and I feel like I don’t even want to put them back on. The light that comes in through this room is amazing!

Can we also talk about how amazing this is going to look when I add the barn door? I can’t wait!!

I stumbled upon this photo on Pinterest from Kyal and Kara and really liked how it looked. It was exactly what I was trying to do, but I just didn’t know it yet!
