Here is what my laundry/utility/pantry looks like today...
There are several obvious inefficiencies in the current layout of this room. One is this huge wall over the ironing board. It should be cabinets and will be in the new layout. Just no reason for underusing this valuable space! I don't think I need to go into detail about how bad the lighting is. Upgrades there are essential.
This view is looking into the black hole of wasted space. I hope to rearrange the utilities (hot water heater and water pump) plus plumbing to make better use of this corner. This is where I need expert advice. I need to know what is possible. I also want to inquire about a water softener system. We have extremely hard water and are always clogging every thing with iron filament. Now would be a good time to address this.
Here is the floor plan again. I made some revisions this morning based on input from my husband. He pointed out some obstacles in the utility area that I had chosen to overlook. I need to give more space to that area because of it. :-(
So folks, cheer me on! I've been saving my pennies for years for this upgrade and the time is here! Let the fun begin.
