A new trend: Decorate your laundry room! Considering that the average family does over 400 loads of laundry a year – it may not be such a bad idea – we do spend quite some time in our laundry rooms. Some laundry rooms are dark and spooky and out of the way.. Or even a catch all space for some clutter. Designers are saying lighten it up. Add a splash of color. Maybe even a sofa! (If your laundry room is big enough for a sofa, its even more important to maximize and decorate this space)! Have fun with it!
