House update — we are suppose to close on Monday August 4th so look for a little video with a tour of the house!
On to the projects….one of the many projects on our new house renovation list is the mud room which for the time being also functions as the laundry room. It’s off the 2 car garage which makes it perfect for a mud room and not so perfect for the laundry. I’ll share a picture of the space once we get in but there is an option to create a little laundry room and close it off so I am considering that down the road. Initially we will be buying a new washer/dryer installing a folding counter and getting a new functional sink. There are old school cabinets above the w/d so I am thinking we will remove those and install floating shelves or taller new cabinets.
For the flooring in the mudroom hubby and I agreed on tile for easy wear. I went to go old Home Depot to look at thier selection since we are on a budget! They have this new porcelain tile that looks like marble to me. I fell in love with it (the one on the right). The idea is laying it in a herringbone pattern that could change once I get in the space next week. This tile is so affordable like $2.99/sq ft!
The wall color for the room is going to be Wickham Gray by Benjamin Moore. It is light and airy which is the goal of the space. Below picture is wickham grey and you can see it has hints of blue and green in it which I love. I envision as our twins get bigger creating a cubby area and hooks for all of their things (and moving the washer dryer).
This is what I am looking at for a stackable washer/dryer. Electrolux 4.3 cu. ft. Front Load Washer/dryer. We bought something like this for our current house and have loved them plus since they stack it will give us more room!
That’s it for now! Stay tuned for more updates …..
