The Laundry Room Renovation: The Plans

With the guest bathroom nearly complete, it only makes sense to start the next project, right?

Friends, meet the laundry room.

What’s Already Been Done

This is a newly-created room that wasn’t in the original house. Prior to us gutting the place, the laundry was downstairs and in it’s place was a guest bedroom and bathroom.

Taking a stroll down memory lane, this is what we started with.

The bed is sitting inside what is now the main laundry room.

What was previously the guest shower and about a quarter of the bathroom, (where Brett is standing and extending left, all the way to the pipe) is now the closet.

After framing in the room, we added a gigantic window and moved the washer and dryer upstairs.

The good news?

We’re starting with a very, very blank canvas.

The bad news?

We’re starting with a very, very blank canvas.

The Plan

We picked out the tile last year on a trip to Builder Material Outlet – a home renovator’s heaven.

For the room, we’re wanting a cross between farmhouse, industrial and traditional.

There will be rustic/industrial shelves  over the washer and dryer, a homemade sign or two, lots of galvanized bins for storage and new light fixtures from Wayfair.

We’re going with Upward by Sherwin-Williams for the walls – it’s a beautiful dusty blue with hints of purple and gray. The trim will be Alabaster, also by Sherwin-Williams.

Since we’re all about the lists, here is what we have to look forward to:

  • Install the tile floor
  • Frame in the window
  • Add shelves above the washer/dryer
  • Add shelves to the closet
  • Find and install a door
  • Add baseboards
  • Paint
  • Install laundry tub
  • Decorate (!)

Our only timeline for this room? To not last as long as the guest bathroom. Shouldn’t be too hard, right? 🙂

All our best,
