Laundry Room Renovation

Published: 07/31/2023
Hi Everyone! I am so excited to finally be working on this article for you. It’s been a long time coming because It’s been awhile since we completed this makeover. I had to go back through lots of footage and also find all of the products so I can break down the cost of the everything. We’ve posted a reveal video that shows the amazing transformation. I hope you’ll check that out. I want to show you the dramatic difference, just walking in to this room. Check out the comparison photos below.

The Goal: Eliminate Clutter

You can see how all the clutter would accumulate above the washer and dryer. I also couldn’t even reach the cabinets at the back, without a step stool. (which you can see just haphazardly leaning against the wall there, for easy access) And the builders grade tiles were very bland. After living here for 10 years, I was just tired of them and ready for a change.

This is the door we use to walk in to the house, and I started realizing it was affecting my mood. No one wants to walk in to their home and be greeted by clutter and mess. It wasn’t a very welcoming sight to see after a long day at work. Even if the rest of the house was clean, this just didn’t set the right tone for the rest of my evening.

The Process

1. Creating Storage

I also don’t have a ton of storage options in my house. We started the kitchen renovation at the same time we began the laundry room. Since we were knocking down a wall between the kitchen and living room, I lost 2 large upper cabinets. I knew I would have to come up with some alternative storage options. Which started with adding additional storage in the pantry but I’ll cover that another time.

My next thought was that I could use the laundry room for some additional storage. But only if I could CREATE more storage in there. The way it was, it wasn’t functional. I hated having to search for the step stool anytime I wanted to reach the shelving behind the washer and dryer. As I started laying out my new design, I knew I wanted a couple of things.

2. Laying Out the Design


  • Shelves
  • Organization
  • Food Bowl for Rocky
  • Built in Steps
  • Dispensers for laundry supplies
  • Space for laundry basket
  • Rod for Hanging Clothes
  • Space for Folding
  • Space for Brooms & Mops
  • Sliding Barn Door

The Results

I am currently working on a list of everything we purchased to bring this renovation to life. I hope to have an updated post by the end of the weekend. I just really wanted to get the video posted before then and the cost breakdown is taking me longer than I anticipated. I promise it will be worth the wait!
