Liven up a laundry room
PROBLEM: I spend so much time in the laundry room! How can I make it more attractive?
SOLUTION: One simple way to make your utility room more cheery: Just add a coat of paint, perhaps in a hue you might not choose for a more heavily trafficked room. Add baskets, hooks, and shelves to keep the washer and dryer area clutter-free. Mounting your ironing board to the wall makes it more convenient and saves space too.
