Laundry loveliness

Laundry contemporary laundry room

Being a mother of 4 children means I'm pretty much chained to my washing basket.
This makes the laundry one of the most important rooms in the house & an efficient use of space is of the utmost importance.
I think the laundry above is certainly perfect in every way.Shaker style cabinets & subway tiles are the ultimate finish to a well set out space.
I especially love the marble topped table in the centre of the room, beautiful & handy all at the same time.

This one is another favourite & probably a little more realistic for most of our budgets & space allocation.
In my last house we had a fantastic laundry. It had a nice long bench area like this with plenty of overhead cupboards, a nice tall broom cupboard & a large linen press.
It made it very easy to stay organised, I would iron a few things each day as dinner was cooking, never having to pack things away! 

Another pretty laundry with a fabulous centre table.
Unfortunately the house we are renting has an extremely small laundry, it fits our washing machine & tumble dryer & we have a cupboard sitting in front of the external door as there is NO storage in there at all.

There is a fabulous amount of storage in this great laundry.
Its great to be able to fold & iron all of the clothes in the laundry & leave then sitting on the bench until you have time to pack it away, visitors never have to experience the mess.

Are you lucky enough to have a fabulous laundry with tonnes of storage & bench space to work on, or are you like me at the moment & folding the washing on the kitchen table each day?
