This just gives me the idea of how nice it would be to have some sort of way to store each family member's laundry. Nothing else about it is too appealing. But this is a pretty compact way to do something like that.
This image gave me a really good idea, and I hope that I'll be able to remember what it is when I get around to doing the laundry room! :-p (cabinets above the washer/dryer with open shelving in the middle, but "build in" the hanger rod.. thingy... by extending the tops of the cabinet to the other wall.. if that makes ANY sense :-p)
