When my hubby and I were touring the Berry Patch House to possibly rent,
there was one room that was definitely larger than any of the rooms of that purpose
that I have ever had. I soon came to find out that the owners designed the laundry room
to have lots of shelving to use as a pantry as the kitchen has no pantry.
This was deliberate, as they required more space than a typical pantry would offer.
So today I present to you the laundry room of the Berry Patch House.
The Largest Laundry Room I’ve Ever Had!
When you enter the room, the above is what you would first see.
On the right side of the room is a bank of cabinetry with a granite top and a laundry sink.
Then there is a blank wall that used to house shelving.
I am using many of my enamelware pieces, such as my vintage French pitchers,
and blue and white enamelware bowls.
That wall now has my pie safe (which I use for some pantry items) and
a table that I use for folding clothes.
The drop leaf table is great for a folding table
as I can expand the table when needed.
Since the laundry room was so large, I carted all of my laundry room
items that I used to decorate my previous laundry room to the Berry Patch House
loaded in bins in the back of my SUV.
Rather than packing up all those items for storage, I thought that I needed to
decorate that large room. I need pretty when doing not so pretty chores!
I must say that it is nice to have the same amount of cabinetry
that I had in my prior laundry room.
I used to have the vintage baskets that are now hanging on the wall in this laundry room,
on the ledge above the front door in our previous home.
They fill the vast wall space in this room nicely.
The vintage metal shelf continues to display some vintage laundry items.
The mud bench that was previously just outside the door that led from the garage to the house,
found a new home in the laundry room.
In my previous home, I had a counter top over the washer and dryer for ease
of folding clothes. I have decided that after having both options
I prefer having a countertop over the washer dryer.
And . . . there is probably one thing that I will not be putting in the new laundry room . . .
This doggie shower:
It’s located to the right of the washer dryer just inside the door
that can be accessed from outside the house.
As you can see, the room is long and narrow.
Did I mention that I will have a large laundry/craft area in the new house?
I can’t wait to design that area.
