We're excited to continue sharing Deepali's Portland home renovation with you room by room. Up next, the laundry room. Get all the details below.
C: Hi, Deepali, the laundry room looks so bright and clean. What was your inspiration for space?
D: We just wanted to freshen up the space to feel clutter-free and made laundry easy and efficient. We did this room after we finished the house's main remodel, so we were trying to minimize cost as much as possible at this point. In the past, I used to do a lot of DIY projects, but at a certain point, I got burnt out with it. However, because we were trying to minimize cost when redoing this space, I did end up doing most of the work myself, except for hiring a handyman to install the shelves and the countertop.
C: I love the sink! Where is it from, and why did you decide to go with black?
D: It's from Home Depot. We chose black for its durability. We love doing art projects as a family and wanted to have a sink that would hold up well to heavy use.
C: Are the cabinets in the laundry room the same as the cabinets in the kitchen?
D: No, they are just the cabinets that had been there previously. The existing cabinets were not useful, so we gave them a fresh coat of paint and installed new hardware. We used the same hardware used in the kitchen and the same color of paint we used throughout the house to keep the design cohesive.
C: Any tips and tricks for the organization in the laundry room?
D: Baskets. If I don't have time to fold the laundry, I'll use our baskets to store things temporarily. The kids also use the baskets to take laundry to and from their rooms. We will be coming out with some new baskets soon, so keep your eyes peeled. The coat hanger rack we installed is also very helpful for keeping things organized and hanging towels and other dry things.
