As you have seen in previous posts, our “laundry room” has been in the process of turning into our MUDROOM! YAY!!!
But it has been a.ton.of.work.
After plugging all the previous laundry water lines and electrical and adding the shiplap to the wall, it was time to remove the wood flooring and add some sweet tile.
I had many people ask me why I was removing wood in this room if I did not have to; and the answer was because I wanted to be able to put snowy and rainy shoes/clothes in here without worrying about warping wood! I have never seen REAL WOOD in a laundry room before! I do not want to know what would have happened to this flooring if the washer had ever leaked! (EEEEEEK!)
Can I just say how thankful I am to have a husband and dad who is willing to help me do all these projects?! 😘🙌🏻👌🏻
Next up was adding the new tile and expanding the entryway!
Since this space was no longer a laundry room with loud washers and dryers, I added into my design plan to remove the door to the space. We simply removed the door and then took off the casing and door frame. After looking at the entryway with all of them removed, I decide I wanted to also remove a few 2×4’s as well to make the opening even bigger! Once those were taken out, we added new drywall and mudded it all up! I LOVE not having a door to this space because there are so many doors already in this little nook! Now we can come in from the garage and walk STRAIGHT into the mudroom to put away our things and shoes without any doors in our way!
