I am very thankful for my laundry room! Its not too big, but years ago my laundry area was in a hallway covered by folding doors, or even worse, the laundromat. So, I know how blessed I am to have it. I have some of my favorite things in there. There are pictures of my children, a small table my husband bought me and a long rug in front of the washer an dryer, which help make the laundry experience more cheerful.
The only complaints I have are that its located in a high traffic area and there isn't anywhere to hang clothes. I hang a lot of clothes on hangers, some straight from the washing machine to air dry and some straight from the dryer.
I purchased these very sturdy, large plastic over the door hooks which hold a lot of hangers. If my memory serves me right, they were $1.00 for two in a pack. They are so sturdy, that I've had them for years.
I like to hang each person's clothes on a different hook which makes it easy for each person to take their clothes to their closet. There are four different doors in the area that I can hang a hook on. A couple of the hooks stay there all the time, but a couple of them I take down when not in use.
I tend to do most of my laundry on Saturdays. Its an all day thing, but I don't mind! My laundry room is located right next to my sewing room and its just a minor inconvenience to stop sewing and go move the laundry along its way.
I also love over the door hooks like these for the bedrooms.
