Well lit, efficient, space to fold, hang, iron and organize, all the right potions and tools to keep clothing and linen pristine, the laundry area in a home is right up there in importance second only to the kitchen in terms of keeping a family running smoothly. But functional doesn’t have to mean blah. Here are some really well done laundry rooms to make you give your own a second look. Is it time for a once over?
