Up-high shelving helps to maximize laundry room storage space. Could totally do this (and the counter above the washer/dryer too) in our laundry closet.
Self Architecture Laundry Room Idea
Clean up your act in the laundry by installing a countertop above a front-loading washing machine and dryer. The work surface is ideal for folding and sorting clothes and holding cleaning supplies. Got top-loading machines? You can still boost your storage capacity by hanging a shelf above the units. Add a rod for drying delicate garments. Like the shelf but not all the decor, keep it a lot more practical and simple.
