I want to show you the new bars I put on the laundry room wall to add interest and organization to this small room. It was so easy, and it made a major impact for just 21 dollars.
The laundry room is located behind the kitchen, and you can look inside it as you walk down the hall to the back door.
I bought the Bygel towel bars and S hooks at IKEA for $21. This happened on the same day that I wandered around IKEA by myself for six hours and came home with big plans and a reading chair stuffed into the back seat of my car.
First I taped red pencils to the wall where I thought the bars should go so I could step back and be certain before I put holes in the wall. The lowest one is twenty inches above the floor, and the rest are seventeen inches apart. (This is for my 8-foot ceiling.)
Then we mounted the bars to the wall. We painted the screws and mounting disks white so they wouldn’t be noticeable. You can see the bars and not the hardware.
To hang a basket, poke the S hooks through it, and that’s all you have to do. The spray bottles are easy to reach, and it’s nice to have a place to hang wet kitchen towels after wiping up a mess.
I like to use the bars for keeping extra hangers and giving me a place to hang up a shirt or dress if I don’t feel like getting out the drying rack.
It makes me happy to decorate with things that are useful, and since the laundry room is small, a little can do a lot.
