Need ideas for laundry/dressing area--photos!
Hi, all. Haven't been here for awhile; just got involved in other things. But the house is starting to bug me, and it's spring cleaning season...
Our laundry room is about 8x9 feet, broken up by two doors, two windows, and some shallow built-in shelves that can only hold small things like cans. It also serves as a dressing area, and for some other things we'd keep in a linen closet, if we had one.
The reason we get dressed there is because our bedroom is upstairs, but there's only a small powder room up there. This room is between the full bathroom and the kitchen, which makes it very convenient in the mornings. We don't have to run down for coffee, back up for clothing, back down to shower, etc. DH and I have also gotten into the habit of getting changed there when we come home tired from work, rather than trudging upstairs.
I guess the main problem is too many clothes in too small a space. We've got piles of clean clothes with no easy place to put them away, mixed with piles of dirty clothes that won't fit in the hamper, mixed with clothes worn once and could be worn again. I don't know whether to try and make better use of the space downstairs, or just get used to storing more upstairs and making lots of inconvenient trips.
Any suggestions welcome. :)
This is the first time I'm trying to put up a virtual photo album, so I hope it works!
