Adding beautiful architectural interest to your home not only adds value, but also makes your home yours. Clearly, there are many ways you can add details to your home that create character. I’ve always been drawn to styles and looks that create a sense of history, that make it feel like it’s been around for decades. Personally, I believe adding traditional beadboard paneling not only adds cottage charm to any room, but also creates a sense of history.
We have updated every space in our home except the laundry room, so this is the year! The space of the laundry room is not bad, but the finishes never reflected me or my tastes. From the florescent light fixture to the laminate and oak cabinets, it all needs to go.
My plan it not only to update the laundry room, but also create an area for jackets, coats and shoes. Actually, creating a mini mudroom within the laundry room.
You know, I’ve been a little envious ever since we built Steph’s mudroom.
Not to mention when Alex and Megan built their mudroom bench.
For phase one of this makeover, we will begin with the long wall to the right when you enter the laundry room. I feel like this is the perfect space to create hanging storage.
My first thought was to create a board and batten wall. But I feel like that’s not really the style of my home.
So, as I thought about it a bit more, I thought a traditional beadboard paneling would be more fitting for my home.
Adding a traditional beadboard paneled wall is really not that difficult. In fact, Steph and I were able to complete it in an afternoon. Scroll down and see our time saving tips.
