I like the boxed in component. would use this just inside the door of my new room. although my washer will not be a part of this, I love the idea of laundry baskets slid in, Ironing board on the wall and the drying rack above. Simple ideas and functional.
I could spend a day in that laundry room! The Gabrielle rail-and-peg system from Pottery Barn includes shelves, a hanging canvas hamper and a drying rack that can be configured to suit various spaces and organizing needs.
