Remodeled Laundry Room/Pantry Area

Laundry Room 05.14.15
My laundry room was dark, cluttered and not very functional. It always looked like it was a mess. This is the room that is in between the garage and the kitchen, so it was a highly visible and much used spot.

I removed tall pantry cabinets and installed cabinets to the ceiling for the pantry, I built a cedar countertop, installed base cabinets, paneled the ceiling and installed a metal backsplash.

For more information, before pics or to see how anything was done, head over to the blog post.

    I also just looked at your website.....I agree about the hubby's coats breeding. I put them back in the closet and they suddenly appear again.

    Very nice! Wish I had a laundry room, my washer n dryer are stacked in the kitchen. But, when you live in a 130 yr old house you get what you get unless you can expand.

    Love this idea, but it wouldnt work for me either as my laundry room is in the basement. I have arthritis and dont like going up and down the stairs very often My kitchen is small and I have been trying to think of ways to have more storage space.

    Very good idea, the only thing I would change is, I would build the shelves completely down to the countertop....but, that's just me.
