As you may have heard, read or gathered–we have had some bumps in our road–mainly we have yet to receive the money for the sale of our house and it all comes down to today. If we don’t receive the money today, then we will lose our new house. And if we do, we can move in! It seems so simple and black and white. And unfortunately, it is out of our hands, our buyers’ hands and even their brokers’ hands.
I haven’t been feeling the best, but I’ve managed to see some family that live so close now. Every time we hang out with Chris’s brother Aaron and his family at their house, Heather (Aaron’s wife) and I always chat, chat, chat and then find some little project to do around their already gorgeous home. We’ve already tackled their dining room and their music room, but today I just wanted to show you their laundry room + joint closet. Heather is the most organized person I know and when they built this house, it seems she thought of everything. Every inch is maximized for functionality and practicality and their laundry room upstairs (!!) is one of my favorite examples of that.
The laundry room part of the space has a nook for sorting lights, darks, and linens as well as things like dance clothes, socks, underwear, etc.
I am a complete sucker for a fold out ironing board, and I appreciated the extra space in the wall for storing the iron as well.
The closet houses clothes to be passed down or donated, the vacuum and suitcases which makes complete sense since this room is where all six children (3 boys and 3 girls) store their clothes as well. The girls dresses also hang in this closet.
Through the laundry area is the joint closet. I feel like if I had this set-up, I would be so much more inclined to put away the laundry–the hardest part of that horrid task, amiright?!
The three boys have the left side of the closet and the girls have the right. Seasonal clothes are stored in bins, so things are constantly being rotated throughout the year, as well as down the line as the girls/boys grow.
The window bench houses all the pajamas. The youngest son has a drawer in the laundry room for his. And Elsie–cheesin’!
Growing up with 4 sisters, always fighting about clothes, my dad always threatened to put all of our clothes in the same closet–and although at the time I thought I would surely die, I think he was onto something! Would you ever consider putting all of your kids’ clothes in one closet? Do you have your laundry room on the same floor as your bedrooms? Lucky!
