Laundry Room Refresh Part One:The Reveal


This post is sponsored by The Home Depot. All opinions are my own.


Hey guys and happy Tuesday! Today is officially the day. Yes, you read the heading correctly! The laundry room reveal is officially live on the Home Depot blog.  You can head over and read all of the details about my my modern and fresh laundry room space.

Before you head over to the blog, let's see where we started, shall we? And let me first give you my disclaimer, shooting a small space with no windows is HARD WORK! Anyway, just had to vent. Moving on:)




A few weeks ago,  I wrote a post about my plans for this space.


When thinking of plans, we knew that having more space and closed storage was the ultimate desire. Being that we could not add to the room of course, we decided to stack our machines. With stacking the machines, we were able to add in a utility sink, which is perfect since we do a lot of projects where having a utility sink is quite useful.


Initially, covering up the area where the water goes in and out of the washing machine was something that we wanted to cover, but in the end, I didn't want anything concealing it in case we need to access it at some point. But, It shockingly doesn't bother me as much, since most of the hoses are covered by the utility sink. Plus, sometimes you just can't cover ugly, and managing the good with the things you can't change is what makes a house really feel like home, in my opinion.

Also, adding a few pieces of decor was important to me to make it feel like just as much of a room as all of the "completed" rooms in my home.




There were several DIY projects that we completed to bring this space to completion, like these stained shelves, and I will be sharing even more of them with you all later this week.



For now, you can head over to the Home Depot blog and check out all of the wonderful features of my pretty new machines! I absolutely love so many features about them, and honestly feel like they were the perfect upgrade for our home.





So what do  you think? Is this a space that makes laundry a tiny bit less of a chore? I think so, but let me know what you think! Thanks so much to the Home Depot for helping me to get this space in order, and thanks for stopping by. Until next time!

    1. Thanks Whitney. If you have new front load machines, you can stack them. It just had to be done with a stack kit, which you can purchase seperately.

    2. I got some top load machines, which is what I wanted, but didn't even think to do stackable ones to save more space. UGH!!

  5. It is really beautiful Erin! Please forgive me if you've already addressed this, but how did you get the water to both the washing machine and the new sink? Is it by some sort of connector? Again, it looks fantastic!

    1. Hi, thank you! No I did not address it yet, but the water now flows through a splitter I believe my plumber called it. To allow both the machine and sink to get water.

    2. Thank you so much!! When we move to our new (old) home, I'm definitely going to try to incorporate a sink in the laundry room along with some of your other ideas! The subway tile makes me swoon! Thanks again!

  6. This looks fantastic. Great job. One question. Was there a reason that you choose a basic utility sink vs. one of the nicer more "finished" looking options?

    1. Thank you! I really honestly just wanted something deep and basic to use, that was also the sizing that I needed. No other reason, other than that if that makes sense, lol.
