Let’s Get The Laundry Room Organized!
I honestly enjoyed this project tremendously. From tearing down the cabinets (from 1990) to having the walls repainted, it was a small, simple wall but made a huge impact for me personally.
I help install Elfa Systems often for clients but getting the opportunity to install them in my own space well, just brings great joy, especially when I can get the laundry room organized.
We don’t think of our Laundry Room as being a space that might need some tidying up, or a space we spend a lot of time in, right?! But Like I said in my last blog, I have an open-door policy. This means that every nook & cranny is a space that needs to be “open door” friendly. So, in the case of the cabinets in this rule, I say tear them out!! Yep, we took the doors away & made shelves that are open & beautiful.
Once an already small space, is now open & with open shelving. Even though things (aka clutter) were hidden behind the doors it feels much better now to have the weight lifted off me.
Elfa systems are pretty DIY friendly. The hardest part is figuring out the design & that is where The Container Store design team is just amazing. They work with you one-on-one, either face-to-face, over email & phone or via virtual design consultation. And when I say hardest, I mean the most fun!
Cause who doesn’t love creating a full new system for all things to be tidy.
LOL just me again, cool. As you know these opinions are just that & as a Brand Ambassador for The Container Store, they gift me products. I do have to apply to be an ambassador & I only promote products I truly trust & love. Elfa is a big one that I can say is sturdy & a value to any home.
We decided to use the Elfa Décor shelves making the space solid & smooth. I grabbed these Baskets & Bins for a pop of color but to provide function. And no space goes without labels. Decanting the detergent has been on my list so it was a no brainer to find these glass jars with lids. And the best part was the Peg Board & the Utility Track for the broom & buffer. I must say it helps to have a place for everything & everything in its place. Check it out!
