Did someone say laundry?  Please tell me I’m not the only one with the never ending pile of laundry that needs to be folded… all day, every day!  The unsettling feeling of getting it washed, folded and put away is always on the back of my mind.  Our mudroom is right off of our garage, making it a high traffic in and out area in our home. It can be over flowing with laundry or simply multiple pairs of shoes in the middle of the floor, and numerous jackets that are thrown about.

Which leads me to today’s post! How and why you should create a beautiful laundry room or mudroom and it organized and simple!  I love when everything has it’s own place and neatly tucked away.  The items that I have on display are either pieces of decor that add character and charm to a room, or practice and in arm’s reach. Baskets (and crates) are my love language when it comes to organizing.  They not only add so much storage space but look so great when styled in multiples or solo.  Instead of cramming your cleaning supplies and laundry detergents into your cupboards under the sink, place them into crates or the pretty ones on display.  Below I’ve listed my top 5 tips and items to help you create a beautiful space to help making those not so pretty (and daunting)  areas in your organized and beautiful again!

Top 5 Tips to the Perfect Laundry Room:
1. Keep it simple!
2. Find storage specifically for the items you have
3. Add in statement pieces like a great floor (we love the cement tiles!!) or a wallpaper!
4. Consider having some built ins made for some extra storage and a cohesive, all together look
5. Find detergent and cleaning supply bottles that are cute and have great branding, not only for convenience but also for some added style!

Top 5 Items for the Perfect Laundry Room:
1. Baskets
2. Hooks
3. Crates
4. Floating shelves for visible storage
5. And a great piece of artwork… or statement floor!
