Our New Laundry Closet!

This post is sponsored by Maytag. All opinions are my own.

I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to have our laundry closet completed! 

When we first bought our new house in the ‘burbs, it was very dated. The original laundry room was on the first floor next to the kitchen, and the previous owners had moved it upstairs into a hallway closet.

There were old shelves and bifold doors that divided the space, and it was generally very small and cramped. Scroll down to see a before and after comparison!

Our old washer and dryer set didn’t fit the new space and we were on the hunt for a new set. As a busy mom of two, dependable appliances are a necessity, so when Maytag approached us about featuring their laundry sets and it was an immediate YES from us!

Maytag prides itself on manufacturing powerful laundry appliances that can help tackle everyday tough stains, and “tough stains” is basically my life’s motto with a baby and toddler running around. Ha!

We switched from an old front load washer that was too large for our space to this Maytag® Top Load washer with the Extra Power button that helps improve the flow of my narrow laundry room space and more easily load laundry from the washer to the dryer.

We wanted the space to have as much functionality as possible while still keeping it open so the room feels bigger and we have more room for sorting and folding laundry.

So, to maximize the storage around our new laundry set, we installed two floating shelves, a wall-mounted drying rack, and a folding station with additional storage.

There was obviously no room for a full sink in our laundry room, but our Maytag® washer has a built-in water faucet that you can use to rinse away loose soils as clothes go in or fill the tub for up to a three-hour soak before the cycle begins. 

Plus it has the Extra Power button that boosts stain-fighting on any wash cycle by dissolving stains in hot and cold water—all in a single load. It’s awesome!

 

I thought this geometric drying rack was too cute to pass up since it went so perfectly with our accent wallpaper!

We honestly don’t even need one since our dryer has Advanced Moisture Sensing – a feature that uses has multiple sensors to monitor inside moisture and air temperatures to help evenly dry loads. But it makes for a cute design element!

Another perk with our new dryer is the Extra Power button! When heavy jeans get mixed in with thin shirts or baby clothes, the Extra Power button boosts drying power on any cycle by extending time, heat and tumbling –  helping get thick fabrics, pockets, hems and seams drier the first time.*

Lastly, folding clothes is my absolute LEAST favorite part of the laundry process. We made these DIY shelves with inexpensive bins for each category of laundry in our house so that it had an easy place to stay tidy after being folded. 

Also worth noting that it was likely folded by Jared and not by me, haha! 

I’ll be sharing a full before and after blog post with all of the DIY’s and room sources for our laundry room on the blog later this week, so be sure to check back soon!

  4. Wow, this space is gorgeous! I love the drying rack. Such a great way to stay useful but be out of the way. I never dry any of our athletic gear so this would be perfect.

  5. This closet is a dream come true. As someone who lives in a major city I could only dream of this due to the lack of space. Love this!

    • Thanks, Julia! We use to live in the city too and definitely had to be creative with our lack of laundry space in our townhome. We are in the ‘burbs now but can’t complain because this closet may be small but it’s definitely more spacious than previous ones! XOXO

  6. Wow, I cannot believe that amazing before and after shot! Those are always my favourite things to see whenever someone unveils a room makeover. It’s always inspiring to see what people can create out of different spaces, and I LOVE what you did what your laundry closet 😍

    We’re currently renting and we aren’t allowed to make any changes (even temporary ones) unfortunately, and our tiny bathroom/laundry is a real eyesore, so I often dream about our future laundry that WON’T be a pain to look at *or* be an inefficient use of space. Ahh, someday. Love the new tiles, too!

    • Thanks, Indya! We are so glad you liked the makeover! That’s unfortunate to hear that your landlord won’t let you make any changes! Hopefully, you will get your own laundry space soon that will be perfect and not an eyesore. XOXO
