Laundry Room & Hallway

When we bought the house, the laundry room was part of the hallway bathroom, which didn't make sense to me (and wouldn't pass code these days anyway...) You can see the original inspiration for this room here. After reading thru the post I wrote a year ago, I obviously changed my mind a lot!

Since the photos were taken by K. Holly, we've hung a few prints in this room, along with some IKEA hooks for coats, hats and bags. It's much more "winterized" for us in Michigan - there are coats, hats, & boots everywhere!

Since the room was part of the garage, and sits on a cement slab, we did heat the tile floor - which we LOVE! Even though the room is quite tiny, it works for me to wash/dry and then take to the kitchen island to fold and then to bedrooms to put away. There is no room for dirty baskets, so we simply have hampers in our closets.

Laundry Room Resource List

  • Washer & Dryer | LG via Sears
  • Cabinet | Custom made to match kitchen by our builder, Bruce Vugteveen
  • Paint Color | Ralph Lauren's Impressionist
  • Flooring | (no idea the brand name) via The Tile Shop
  • Lighting | Two used & unmarked white glass pendants via Practical Props

After you leave the laundry room, you head down the hallway to the three bedrooms and one hallway bath. We widened the hallway a smidge when we redid the (rotten!) wall here. Thankfully, these skylights are okay for now (the one in the kitchen is sweating all the time, and needs to be replaced...soon!

You may notice we don't have any trim on these interior doors. Greg came across EZY Jamb and wanted these so we'd reduce visual clutter in our hallway. I am very happy with how it looks, and they have held up so far - time will tell for how long! 

We opted for no visible light fixtures in the hallway - we wanted to keep it as plain as possible. No photos/artwork planned for here either.

Hi Terry, we ordered right from Ezy Jamb! Super easy to work with - my husband did all the leg work, though :)
