What my laundry room has going for it, besides the facts that it’s an actual room and it has a window, which I love, is that it’s the smallest room in the house, and therefore, the closest to being finished. In a house full of renovation projects, that is a very big deal.
We have already put in a new tile floor, new paint, and replaced the light fixture. Now what it needs is a colorful curtain and a few organizational touches.
Motivated by the idea that this room could be done soon, I decided to make progress on it by cleaning and straightening it.
1. Remove the dirty towels from the floor and wash them.
2. Wipe the dust and lint from the top of the washing machine and dryer.
3. Straighten the washer and dryer so they sit side by side instead of crooked.
I still need to clear off the top of the dryer. There is a huge container of a detergent that’s not my favorite, but I didn’t go to the store that day. I want to decant it into a container that’s smaller and easier to manage, and put the rest of the things away.
Time estimate to work on the laundry area: 10 minutes, tops.
