Maximizing small laundry space
We are moving in June to a newly built home. Everything is perfect except the size of our laundry room.
It is approx 6x8 in size and there will be a sink with one lower drawer. We have front loaders that will sit under the counter top. Any suggestions on how we could maximize the space? I need a lot of storage and since the garage is attached to the laundry room, we will be using it as the point of entry daily rather than the front doors.
I'm thinking of going to Ikea to get storage solution ideas. I would love to have a space for the kids to hang their things, almost like a locker style look, but nicer of course. Because the space is small, I was thinking of having everything white. Any thoughts? Our builder is suggesting the same colour as the kitchen cabinets (expresso stained) for the laundry room as it "flows" better.
I would appreciate any ideas as we do at least 4-5 load of laundry each week and I want to use that space to store our jackets, shoes and of course laundry detergent.
Thanks soo much!!
