Laundry/Mudroom/Pantry Inspiration


I mentioned in my 2013 Goals post that we were looking at putting an addition on our home for the laundry/mudroom/pantry.  This project is still in its infancy, the builders just came out last week to take measurements, so while I wait to hear how much it's going to cost us, I've been brainstorming layouts and aesthetics.  I love organizing and decorating, so of course that's what I focus on.

There's a really long story on how we got to the decision to build the addition.  Not to bore you with all of those details, it boils down to our current laundry area DOES NOT function.  You have to do gymnastics in order to get laundry in and out.  It's frustrating.

So the ideas bounced around between the hubs and I for months.  When we both finally agreed on the most cost effective, feasible and functional approach...the new addition was born.

On our list of must have's for the space:
  • Laundry with sink
  • Pantry space
  • Easy access to outdoors (better FLOW)
  • Shoe Storage
  • Hunting Clothes, etc storage
There are several other "like to have's", but for now this is the MUSTS.

Scouring blogs, websites and Pinterest, here are few pictures of how I envision this new space.

First up, Ikea.  I love the plank walls and the color of the armoire.  I anticipate the armoire being the solution to the hunting clothes storage "must have".


Next, I found this picture recently and I love the bead board and the butcher block counter.  There even seems to be  little barn door styling going on the pantry door in the back....love me some barn doors!


The soaking sink for the laundry will be a galvanized tub, kind of rustic.

{I can't find the original source, but it was pinned from my Pinterest page}

This rug is great- 'nuff said!

Finally, the picture that sums it all up for me....
More updates coming soon!
