Laundry Room Layout

Because of their double- or triple-duty potential, laundry rooms are a good investment for you and your family. After you purchase your washer and dryer, think about installing some built-ins for your cleaning necessities. If you still have room to spare, consider what else the area can be used for, and set aside corners, cabinets or shelves for other purposes. Once all the functional aspects are out of the way, you can finally incorporate those unique laundry room decorating ideas to complete the makeover and liven up those mundane chores. How do I add storage to my laundry room remodel?As you look to various laundry room design ideas for remodel inspiration, remember to help it serve multiple functions by incorporating clever storage. Include built-ins, shelves and cabinets to store supplies like hangers, clothespins, sewing kits, irons and detergent —the leftover space can store pet accessories and seasonal items. To ensure that you deal with clothes right away, give yourself a table nearby the washer for folding, a pull-out drying rack for hanging and a hidden ironing board for crisply ironed clothes. Making it a one-stop shop will ensure that all your chores get done at once — no excuses! Check out other’s spaces and pick out the laundry room ideas that make the most sense for your storage needs. What else can laundry rooms be used for?If you have a smaller home, using your utility room for multiple purposes is a great space-saving technique. Because it often has an utility sink, it naturally is a great place to feed and bathe your furry friends. It also easily transitions into a mudroom, where you can store extra shoes, sports equipment and winter clothing. One of the best laundry room ideas for larger spaces is to use it as a small office — it can be a drop station for mail, cell phones and keys and even function as a craft or wrapping station. Think about what your family needs and incorporate those features into your laundry room design to start getting the most out of your space. How can I decorate my laundry room?With plenty of laundry room decorating ideas to choose from, you’re sure to find something that speaks to you. Because there isn’t typically a lot of counter space to spare, take advantage of your walls when decorating. Bright paint or wallpaper can help make chores pleasant, while fun signs, posters, murals and wall decals can enhance laundry room designs of all styles. Think of your storage containers as laundry room decor too; find bins, baskets and hangers with fun patterns and colorful fabrics to bring life to the space.

In most homes the laundry room is one of the most neglected rooms.  Although, many home owners spend a majority of their time in their laundry room.  Is it because the laundry room isn’t on display like the kitchen, so we neglect how it looks and how efficient it is laid out? Similarly to your kitchen, an efficient laundry room will help you enjoy the space while you’re in it.  For those that hate doing the laundry, it may be because the layout isn’t efficient and you track back over your steps continually. Look at how to layout an efficient laundry room.

The L-Shape Laundry Room An L-shape laundry room gives you the option of placing the laundry sink (just out of view on the left) on one leg of the L and the washer and dryer on the other. This arrangement offers extra counter space for folding clothes and dealing with hand-washables. While it’s convenient to have the sink next to the washer, if your laundry room doubles as a potting room or pet-washing station, separating the sink from the appliances keeps messes away from the clean laundry. The L-shape laundry room also boasts more room for upper and lower cabinets, and display shelves for storing laundry staples.

I entered this website looking for information on how to lay out an efficient laundry room and in the page that spoke specifically about laundry room layout, the option to Design A Room with BHG.com popped up. I entered that site and spent time (this aspect of the tool needs help!) trying to get the dimensions of the room correct before selecting furniture. A person really should be able to just enter dimensions like 10′ by 15′ and be done rather than clicking and dragging and trying to end up with a square room! Once I completed this step, I clicked on furniture selection, and lo and behold, laundry room type furniture was not an option. I was highly disappointed with the amount of time I wasted going down this dead end path. You should not offer this design tool embedded in a page about laundry rooms if laundry rooms can’t be designed with it.

Wash, Dry, Repeat Americans spend more time in the laundry room than in the bathroom: an average of eight hours a week, collectively doing some 35 billion loads of laundry a year. And yet, while bath design has evolved into a discipline of its own, and the space into a bona fide retreat with soothing soaker tubs, the laundry is often relegated to a basement, separated from the life of the home. Increasingly, though, homeowners are creating laundry rooms that are as integrated as a bath or the kitchen. They can even be in a bath or kitchen. Chalk it up to busier lives and a need to multitask, says designer Dana Jones of Long Beach, California. A first-floor laundry room can serve as a command center—a nook near the family room, where parents can keep an eye on the kids while folding, or off the back door, where it can double as a mudroom, home office, or hobby area. On the second floor, stackable, whisper-quiet front-loaders can tuck into a hall closet, just a balled-up-shirt-toss from the bedroom. For help bringing your wash-and-dry space closer to the hub of your home and boosting its function, check out the elements of the decked-out laundry at left. Then, in the following gallery, see how those features, as well as other smart ideas and versatile layouts, are put to work.

If there is one thing every laundry room can use is storage.  Don’t assume if your laundry area is small that you don’t have space for storage.  Smaller laundry room should take advantage of height with shelving, baskets, and labeled bins for storage on top.  For front load washer and dryers install a countertop surface above to maximize workspace. For larger laundry rooms, cabinetry and closet storage area works well for housing brooms, mops and cleaning supplies often found in laundry room areas.

Beautify your home with the latest lawn and garden equipment from Sears Taking care of your garden or yard can be a tough task, but the right lawn and garden equipment can save on time and energy with great results. Whether you’re looking to just cut the grass and clear weeds or clean up snow in the winter, Sears has all the supplies that you need to complete any task with confidence. You’ll be able to stock your garden shed with high-quality mowers, chainsaws and much more. Choosing the right landscaping tools depends solely on your requirements. A lawn mower is a great way to keep your grass well kempt throughout the year. You can minimize physical labor with a standard or zero-turn tractor. This machine comfortably maneuvers around tight obstacles and can tackle large pieces of property.

Kids Room Organization

Kids are a big part of Alix Adam’s life. That’s why she’s become a master of kids room organization solutions. We asked the blogger behind A Ruffled Life to show us some of her practical and attractive kids room organization ideas. Kids’ Room Organization Ideas Living with kids is the best part of my life. I’m so lucky to have children, and I really mean that! Having those little kiddos running around all day means that there is always a mess to be made (and a mess to be cleaned up)! Lots of fun and lots of messes is the name of the parenting game. When it comes to reducing chaos around here, I have found that having a place for everything is the first step to having everything in its place. That is why coming up with creative organization solutions is so important! Plus, I have a propensity for keeping things orderly. A well-used bin makes my heart sing ;). Here are a few of my favorite kids’ room organization tools! Wooden Crates As you can see, a wooden crate is kind of the sexiest of organization solutions. It’s versatile and looks really, really cool in any room. I also have a major love of beautiful children’s books, so a wooden crate filled with easily accessible picture books looks a-maz-ing in my living room. Plus, we read more now. It’s functional and beautiful. Milk Crates These plastic milk crates are stackable, durable, and kind of the perfect size for storing kids’ stuff. I use a couple to store children’s blankets in my nursery because those blankets are way too slippery to fold up nicely on a shelf. In fact, silky kids’ blankets are almost impossible to store without the help of a handy organization bin…enter milk crates! Jumbo Stacking Baskets These are my sanity savers. These Jumbo Stacking Baskets are the perfect organization solution for all our on-the-go items. These cute little baskets are amazing for shoes, backpacks, coats, helmets, and any other items that need to be easily shed when arriving home. I also love that they keep all our shoes so accessible when we need to run outside for an urgent game of soccer or some intense bubble blowing. Cube Organizer I love this cube organization unit for two reasons. First, it is a flawless solution for small toys. Let me tell you there is no quicker way to test your patience than waddling through a floor full of small toys and then accidentally stepping on a Lego. Many muffled four-letter-words have resulted from hurting a foot on a small toy, but now I have a place to put them! The second reason I love this organizer is because each fabric drawer is small enough and light enough that my kids can take it out of the cubby. Often those cubbies find themselves in our living room where we can play together!  Clear Organizing Boxes Crafting and creating with my children is very important to me. I think it is so important for children to learn how to create something on a blank canvas and for me to foster an appreciation for design. Keeping the creativity flowing while keeping the craft clutter to a minimum is a challenge for these Rubbermaid clear organizer boxes to tackle! I love that they are large enough to hold a growing collection of art supplies. I also love that they have a little door on the front that can be opened when your crayon bin happens to be at the bottom of the bins. A happy mom is a happy home, and nothing makes my heart sing like my children…my children and an organized home (in that order). 🙂

Hanging Bedside OrganizerThis little fabric organizer is pure genius! It’s quick and very easy to make, and it simply slips in between the mattress and the actual bed frame. You can adjust the pocket quantity and sizes to hold whatever your kids like to keep close – books, teddies, gaming devices, you name it. And the non-skid pad will ensure that it never slips out from the weight. No mess, no fuss! The organizer on photo is for sale on Higgos, and the pattern and instructions are available Sewmamasew.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – SewmamasewVideo Game StorageFor Wii games, CDs, DVDs and other disc type games, you can build a great storage unit for them that is hidden away, out of sight. You’ll need a mat board, some vinyl, double backed tape, fabric, and a few other key supplies. The storage is hidden on the inside of a cabinet or entertainment center door so you never see it unless it’s open. By creating individual holders, you can keep games and other discs safe while still having a great place to keep them all organized. Plus, this project takes just a couple of hours and if you have a few supplies on hand, it won’t cost much if anything at all.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – InfarrantlycreativeVintage CratesYou can create adorable storage carts from old pallets. If you have a lumber yard or similar business near you, you may be able to get the pallets for nothing so the cost of this one is very little. It may take a couple of hours but you’ll end up with wonderful toy boxes or storage containers for blankets or anything else the kids have thrown around in their rooms. Plus, you can add wheels to the bottom so you can easily move the crates around, which makes picking up toys after playtime really fun.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Ana-whiteClear Toy Storage BagsThese bags are so neat and they are really easy to make. They have a drawstring closure and they are completely see-thru so kids can tell which toys go into which bag. You’ll need some fabric, thick clear vinyl, a drawstring cord and fusible interfacing. You have to sew a little but the great thing is that you can make as many bags as you need and you can do them in a bunch of different sizes so they’re perfect for every single toy. The bags make it really easy to move toys from one room to another or for outside play as well.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Makeit-loveitOrganized Lego StorageAh, Legos. Every little boy loves Legos. Moms however, not so much, especially when those Legos end up all over the floor. If you’ve ever stepped on one of those little buggers barefoot then you know just how great this Lego storage project is. If your little one (or your big one) has a lot of Legos, this project helps you to organize them by color so they always know where each color that they need is located. Plus, it keeps them all neatly put away so that they’re not attacking your bare feet when you least expect it.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – IheartorganizingStuffed Animal SwingHanging storage for stuffed animals is great but those nets that you stick up in the corner can be a little boring. They can also look very untidy when they are stuffed to the gills with animals. This swing is a much neater idea and one that is so easy to make you’ll probably want a couple, especially if you have loads of stuffed animals to put away. You need a bit of hobby wood, a clothesline, and some hooks. You simply create swings for all of the animals to sit on and then hang on the wall or from the ceiling.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – ItsalwaysautumnTube CubbiesOh how we absolutely adore projects that are free. These tube cubbies are made from empty toilet paper rolls so they don’t cost anything – aside from the initial toilet paper purchase, that is. You simply put them together and create a little garage for all of those Matchbox cars. For girls, you could use these to store Barbie dolls or any number of other little toys. Just glue the tubes together and then place the “garage” on a dresser when finished. He will have a blast putting his cars away in his little tube garage.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – SpoonfulRolling Toy StorageToy storage under the bed is great because it’s close enough to the floor for little ones to reach plus it keeps that mess off the floor and out of sight. This rolling storage box is perfect for organizing toys and is really easy to make. It’s on wheels so kids will have no problem getting to their toys and you can paint labels on the front of each drawer if you want to really get things organized. This is a great project if you have dresser drawers that are missing the fronts or just any type of drawer that you no longer need. Just add a coat of paint and some wheels and you’re all set.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – LizoncallQuick and Easy Book StorageIf your kids have quite a few books and you don’t really have anywhere to store them, this book storage project is perfect. You just need a few Ikea spice racks, which are around $4 each. Or, you could use cheaper spice racks if you can find them. Just put the spice racks up on the wall or a door, wherever the little ones can reach them and add the books. Not only does it provide great organization, it helps your little ones to be able to find and reach their books so they will want to play with them more often.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – DomesticsimplicityCrafty CanistersOld coffee cans (well, they’re not really cans so much as plastic containers now) make wonderful canisters. You can store things like crayons, Matchbox cars, doll clothes, and just any number of smaller items in them and completely organize playrooms and bedrooms. The great part about this project is you can print off labels to go on the coffee cans so kids will be able to remember where everything goes. And, don’t worry that your little ones aren’t reading yet. The labels that you use are actually pictures of what goes into each can. This is a great organizing idea and a wonderful learning tool for toddlers.DIY Instructions and Project Credit – HeartofwisdomDress Up ClosetImagine a dress up closet that will hold all of your little one’s dress up clothes. Well, stop imagining and get to creating. This adorable little closet is made from an old dresser (just a small one) and it perfectly holds all of those dress up clothes and keeps them perfectly organized. You can keep dresses, shoes, hats or anything else you need in there. She’ll love being able to find her dress up stuff and you’ll love that there is a lot more room in the toy box when those things have a place of their own. Plus, it’s a really easy project and it’s just so adorable!DIY Instructions and Project Credit – Aturtleslifeforme

When it came we were a little surprised about how short it was but it looks great for a great price. A few of the bars on the underside of the sofa were dented but very minorly and does not seem to affect the look or structural soundness of the piece. We bought a weatherproof slip cover to protect the non-weatherproof cushions and the plastic woven material from sun and rain damage. I think it will be great! Was this review helpful to you?

Love this sectional ! It arrived in 2 LARGE boxes delivered via Fed-Ex. Double Boxed. No Damage-No Problems. Took all pieces out & laid them out to confirm all parts there. took a couple of hours for assembly by myself. Cordless Screwdriver makes it go faster. Once you assemble one section, the rest go much quicker. Other reviews state the cushions are thin, I felt they are substantial & firm. Agree that the sections separate easily & this is due to the furniture being lightweight. There should be some kind of bands, possibly that go around the feet, to keep the sections together maybe? Otherwise Very Satisfied. I kept the corner open and made it a little “garden” section with plants & a fountain I already had. See Pic below

Can we order just the armless middle pieces to make the couch bigger? – I just bought this great piece, but it’s a little small for our outdoor space. I would like to put 2 armless sections on each wing, instead of just one. Since those 2 pieces came in their own box, can I just buy another two armless sections?? Thanks!!

Although both cobbles and landscape stone can be used in flowerbeds, there are many differences between the two products. Our landscape stone is significantly smaller than our granite cobbles. Our smallest cobbles are 3” in diameter and while they may be used in landscaping architecture for retaining walls or flowerbeds, they wouldn’t be suitable as a groundcover. Also, Kafka’s cobbles are smooth round glacially deposited granite stones, whereas our landscape stone varies in texture, size and origin. Some landscape stone may be rough and jagged and some may be round. If your project includes just designing flowerbeds with some retaining walls, our granite cobbles may be a good option for you. However, if you need more expansive ground cover or an alternative to mulch, landscape stone is your best choice. If you need high-quality landscaping stone, ask us today about a dealer near you!

Home Office Setup

Step 1: Pick a space You can use a portion of a room as a home office, but be sure the personal spaces are clearly separate from the business space. Your home office must be the primary area where your business activities take place, or if you spend most of your time elsewhere, the place where you conduct administrative or management chores (assuming you don’t make substantial use of any other fixed location to conduct those chores). When furnishing your home office, you should have only those decorative items that would be appropriate for a “real” office or cubicle—if you wouldn’t have something in a real office, it shouldn’t be in your home office. Your desk, computer, filing cabinets and shipping area (if you have one) should all be part of your home office space. Storing Inventory If you use areas in your garage, basement or attic as storage space for your inventory, you can add it to your home office space to take the deduction. You cannot deduct your entire garage, basement or attic if you use only a portion of that space to store inventory. The solution? Duct tape. Use it to set the boundaries of the “business” portion of your garage, basement or attic so that if you are ever audited, the IRS agent can see clearly where your home office space ends and your personal space begins.

Whether your home office is designated space for running a business, the occasional telecommute, or simply a nook for paying bills and organizing your schedule, you deserve more than a metal desk and extra chair stuffed into a spare corner. Why? An office that reflects the design and comfort of the rest of your home is a place you’ll want to burn the midnight oil. Here are 10 tips for creating a charming, practical work space. 1. Location, location, location. You’ll likely spend many hours in your home office, so don’t stiff yourself on space (e.g. squishing a tiny desk into a windowless closet to preserve the rarely-used guest room). Also consider traffic flow and your ability to withstand distractions. Do you work best in the thick of activity, or should your office be tucked away in a quiet space? If clients will be stopping by, a private space with ample seating is a must. 2. Don’t sacrifice form for function. Your desk, shelves, and storage should serve you, not the other way around. Consider your workflow and what items you need at your fingertips before investing in furniture, and then look for pieces that are both beautiful and functional. Home office furniture should complement other rooms in your house instead of screaming “soulless cubicle.” If your home has traditional décor, warm wood and soft, comfy chairs or a loveseat are ideal if you have the space. A contemporary home office can feature artistic pieces or modern metal furniture. 3. Invest in a great chair. You spend hours parked in your office chair; a beautiful, ergonomically-correct, comfortable seat is worth every dime.
home office setup 3

Step 4: Start deducting If you have a home office, you can deduct your home office percentage from many of your household expenses (such as mortgage interest, property taxes, utilities, homeowner insurance or rent). If you own your home, you can also depreciate the business portion for tax purposes. You cannot deduct expenses (such as lawn care and gardening) for activities that take place outside of the home, since by definition a “home office” must be “within” a home. Some Special Rules You cannot deduct more than the net profit your business makes each year. (But like other operating losses, you can carry these forward into future tax years.)

1 Make a List of Your Critical Home Office Needs Reza Estakhrian/ Stone/ Getty Images Before claiming a corner in one of your rooms and calling it an office, make a detailed list of your most basic needs for a home office. This is called your “critical needs” list. It should include items you must have for your office, such as a desk, computer, fax machine, telephone, and so on. If you are a graphic artist, for example, you may need both a small desk for your computer and a larger table or work space for your artwork. If you are a consultant, however, you may need additional space for several locking, fire-proof file cabinets, and possibly a space for clients to meet with you. When making your list of critical needs, it is important to think about all the ways in which you plan to use the home office.

2 Choose a Dedicated Area for Your Home Office Space Once you have made your critial needs list, you have a better idea of how much room you actually need for an office. With that in mind, you can now choose a dedicated area of your home for office space. Ideally, the office should be in a quiet area with some level of privacy. This is especially important if you share the house with a spouse, children or even a roommate. For example, a spare room with a door may be best because it can help filter noise from the rest of the house. Or, if you will be meeting with clients in your home office, it may be more efficient to choose a room near the front entrance of the house.

9 Establish Office Hours Flexibility is a key benefit of working for yourself in a home office. Yet, it still requires that you put in a fair amount of time. Setting a typical schedule for working in your office will help you stay focused. Perhaps even more important, keeping standard office hours (for the most part) also helps your clients know when you are available and can be reached. After all, you may do much of your creative work in the middle of the night, but your clients are more than likely keeping more traditional hours and need access to you within that timeframe. Setting office hours can also help minimize distractions and unnannounced calls or drop-in visits from well-meaning friends and family.
