house tour {master closet & laundry room}



 you know we’re good friends when i let you into my closet!

we’re just about finished up with my house tour, so today i’m sharing with you my master closet and laundry room (they share a space).


 sean and i share a closet (he’s on the left, i’m on the right).  all of his clothes fit in here, and i have a dresser in our bedroom as well.


 i recently rearranged, cleared out and cleaned up our closet, and one of the biggest changes was so simple: slimmer hangers!  i love these velvet ones.  i got mine from target.


 our closets were done by sean’s company, onesource.


i used every little bit of wall space in here!


 my shelves hold shoes, folded jeans, and a few baskets holding my smaller clutches, mittens & beanies, and travel items (like power adaptors & passport holders).


 boots are held up with dollar store pool noodles cut to size with a serrated knife.


 we store our smaller travel bags at the top of our closet.


on sean’s side we have 2 laundry baskets – one for whites and one for darks.


 since we, uh, forgot to build a closet for coats and vacuums, we had to get creative.  our vacuum tucks into the teeny bit of floor space next to a doorway.


 we also have this awesome wall mounted ironing board from sean’s company that folds flat against the wall, then pivots out and down.  the iron holder is from ikea.  we placed it up high so that i can hang a hot iron there to cool, out of reach of small hands.


 right across from the closet is the laundry room.  this was an unintentional outcome when we were building our house.  our plans were to have the laundry in the playroom, since i knew thats where we’d spend most of our time.  but somehow we swapped things around and the laundry ended up here and i love it!  our laundry goes straight from the dryer to our closet with a flick of the wrist.  getting it folded or on a hanger is a different story ;)


 minor changes can make a big difference!


 i got these great baskets from the container store, and added stamped tags to keep things in order.


 we took a hollow-core door, cut it down and painted it to top our washer and dryer for a full countertop.


 even though i didn’t get the laundry in the playroom, its just a door away! (rug from target)

both doors in the laundry/closet are pocket doors since we were limited on space.  the one leading to the bathroom has a full sized mirror on both sides.


 another bonus from our happy accident design change:  our playroom opens up to our laundry/closet, which opens to our master bath, which opens to our bedroom, which opens to the great room, which leads back to the playroom… which means a chase race track for the kids and friends!

any questions?  let me know in the comments!

    Thanks for letting us into your closet – it’s so neat and organized! Love the idea of pool noodles for your boots. Is your entire wall (in the last few pictures) chalkboard paint?

    I love how neat and organized your closet looks. Mine always looks like a wreck! haha! I wish I could get organized and stay that way.
