The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

The Journey of building our forever home in Melbourne, Victoria

Laundry Love

I have to state for the record I actually despise doing laundry - could be the sheer amount we seem to have with a large family and it never ever ends!

When designing our laundry I knew I wanted the cabinets and hardware to match the kitchen so we used the exact same style and colours. Benches are a durable laminate in a similar pattern and colour as our kitchen stone. Although I would have preferred stone in this area in the whole scheme of things its a laundry and a workspace - its not really a room on show and laminate was much kinder to our ever growing budget!

One of the best things we did was install pull out laundry baskets within the cabinetry  - only thing I wish I did was install three instead of the two.

As the laundry has access to the garage I have found this room to be the dumping ground for most things like shoes, sports gear, hubby's tools etc so a big clean up was in order. A few hours later the space is a much prettier and organised space to work in ( I usually start the machine once everyone whines they have no undies!lol)
Pull out laundry baskets  -wish we installed three though!

These two watch my every move - Charlie & Millie


In other news  - our gorgeous garage doors are due to be installed on the garage tomorrow with our black barn lights in the next few weeks - will update you on the progress!
