When we looked at the house I knew right away that it would be our mudroom to keep everyone organized. So we had it painted the rest of the house color and left it sitting for 8 months.
Meanwhile, next door was our cramped “laundry space” in the powder room in a dark closet:
Fast forward 8 months where the renovation began with moving the washer and dryer next door to our empty room. This required a plumber to move the pipes over, electrician to put in new wiring, and even a new dryer vent cut to the outside of the house. These are a few pictures of the moving process:
Once the washer and dryer were moved over, it was time for the cabinets:
Now, I’m sure that I took more pictures, but I couldn’t find them, so let’s get straight to the good stuff, shall we? The final product:
One thing you can’t see in any of these pictures was the closet. Before the renovation, it was the basic 80’s closet with a shelf at the top and a long bar across for coats. I had the cabinet maker rip it out and make me very specific shelves.
Now back to the old laundry room. There was not a lot of shelving or closet space on our main floor, so I had the cabinet maker also build me shelves:
The next step for our renovations is to add a light in the closet above and completely renovate the powder room. Thanks for reading and happy renovating!
