And after the latest walk-through this past weekend, I was reminded again of what an honor it has been to be apart of this journey.
This is how things were looking the last time I showed it to you:
Here is how it is looking now. Isn’t the stone work beautiful?
There was going to be a desk area but it would be tiny.
Teeny tiny to be exact.
And that would be the only designated office space in the entire house. That wasn’t gonna cut it!
I explained to them how I had been seeing a lot of people carving out office space in their laundry or mud rooms. And I grabbed my iphone and pulled up some pictures to prove it to them!
Like this one: I love how the desk is set back into a little nook.
Maybe it would help you to not notice the laundry piled up on the floor!
This next photo shows that the design doesn’t have to be elaborate. Simply by leaving an open space underneath the counter top, room was made for a functional desk area.
I love the little cubbies above the desk in this next photo and utilizing the corner helped maximize the space!
Add in a fridge and you wouldn’t ever have to leave this next space.
Well, that is until your family realized that they were out of socks and underwear and came looking for you!
I love that the washer and dryer in this next room are hidden behind the curtains.
And using a free-standing desk shows that you don’t have to do custom built-ins to make your office/laundry room functional and pretty!
Our friend Kristin from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia carved out this wonderful desk space for her boys in their mudroom. You truly should go over and see the rest of this awesome makeover!
I love absolutely everything about this next one! Maybe it’s because the color of the cabinets remind me of my own laundry room cabinets. Or maybe it’s the floor? Or that open shelving? Or that it’s HUGE?
This space, created by Jolie of the lovely blog Shopping Candy, does triple duty as it serves as a laundry room, office and a craft room!
Well, there you have it!
10 different ways to incorporate an Office Space into your Laundry Room or Mud Room.
Would you ever consider doing this?
I can’t wait to show you how the Laundry Room Office turns out in my Picket Fence Project House along with the rest of the incredible transformation!
