basement laundry room -- I like the simplicity of this room, the wooden folding table, the shelves over the washer/dryer, the drying rack, the laundry sorter under the table (genius, then you don't have to see the messy laundry!), and the bright red stool
Now we're talkin'. Basically unfinished but still very cool. Painted floor, cinder block painted white, curtains for walls and exposed lighting. Has a French country house vibe going. For more basement ideas check out www.ifinishedmybasement.com
Laundry supply shelf. Make laundry day easier with this shelf for all your detergents, stain removers and other supplies. Build this simple organizer from 1x10 and 1x3 boards. If you have a basement laundry room, you may need to cut an access through the shelves for your dryer exhaust.
Multitasking may not always be advisable, but if you can work out, watch TV, and do the laundry all at the same time, you'll increase your sense of accomplishment. To make a basement laundry room comfortable enough that you'll want to spend time there, paint the walls a soothing color, install good lighting, and opt for attractive, easy-care laminate flooring or low-pile carpet.
