When we first started renovations on the house, there was one common theme. We wanted to make the house feel like ours. We were lucky. It wasn’t in bad condition and it’s not an older home. There were definitely a ton of cosmetic changes we wanted to make but, luckily, nothing crazy needed to be done to get the house move in ready. The most important thing for us was getting the house done in a way that felt true to our combined styles and the overall vibe we wanted to set for our new home.
I have to be honest, one of the last things on my list was our laundry closet upstairs. The house didn’t come with a washer and dryer so we were going to use an older set from a family friend. Aside from outdated appliances, I also came to the conclusion that we’d be forever stuck with these dated accordian style doors. The upstairs hallway was just going to be blah. With so many other rooms to work on, this wasn’t a huge priority…and boy was I wrong.
You don’t realize how much of an impact a hallway can have on the flow of your space. Brandon and I will likely spend the majority of our time upstairs. Not only do I do laundry at least 2 times a week (lots of stinky workout gear) but we also walk through this hallway every single morning and evening – and for me it’s even more since I work from home! After just a few days of walking by the eyesore that was the laundry closet, I made the decision it was time for an update.
Naturally, I turned to The Home Depot for the reno project. With updated appliances, the barn doors of my dreams and the perfect accessories, our upstairs hallway + laundry closet were transformed into a space I actually wanted to show off!
