I am tired. I am weary. I have had a killer tummy bug that has left me very behind in everything. Mostly the never ending laundry. So today I thought I would take you on a little tour of my almost finished laundry space.
Hidden behind cupboards for the most part.
Flip out hampers for darks and lights (and I must say the kids are getting to be very good at sorting and could perhaps teach their father a thing or two).
And open out doors reveal the washer and dryer which just squeezed in. We literally had only a couple of centimeters to spare. These cupboards are Ikea Ramsjo and we have used a Numerar benchtop in Oak. These babies are super heavy and it was important that the cupboards were able to withstand both weight and vibration.
The doors have had spice racks attached to house cleaning products, and the top doors are bracketed together to create two big, open out doors. A shelf above has ample room for two hampers (one washing, one ironing) and above that extra storage space which I use to house photos and keepsakes. As our dryer is vented outside, there is no worry about damp, but to be on the safe side, I have a small box of damp rid on hand just in case.
Below is room for washing powder and the dreaded vacuum. I had originally planned this to be for a fold out ironing board, but those boards are so small that I decided against it.
Of course it's not all pretty and neat. This is my ironing pile...
