Updates about our renovation are going to be coming much more frequently now. I can hardly bring myself to type it, but we may in fact be weeks away from moving in! Now I get to focus on the final details.
It’s almost obnoxious to my own ears to admit, but our house will have both a pantry and a laundry room. It’s a organization freak’s dream. And mine since I’ve lived with a washer/drying in my kitchen for the last four years. You don’t often conflate the words sexy with laundry or food storage, but I’m determined to try. I’ve been banking quite the library of inspiration.
I currently have visions of open shelving and matching glass jars dancing in the fantasy pantry in my head. I also have to have wine storage. Significant wine storage. But I digress…
While white and bright feels industrial and chic and kind of “classic pantry,” I’m really loving the darker, moodier tones. They’re more cellar like. It would certainly be fun to create a dramatic display.
When it comes to laundry rooms, it’s all about the details. Tile, hardware, gorgeous counter tops and ingenious storage techniques can make a room dedicated to labor actually fun to spend time in. The options are almost endless.
While I don’t pose to be an organization expert, I’m going to use the opportunity to design these rooms as my attempt to become one. What would you do? Any organization tips you’d recommend? Any must have laundry room or pantry necessities? I’m officially on the hunt.
The count down is on!
