If you have the luxury of a laundry room I am betting you have nothing except maybe a small shelf above the washer and dryer. I think this picture is inspiring because maybe I don’t have all of this luxurious space, BUT I do have one shelf above the washer and dryer. I could easily just have boards above them. There would be plenty of room to store many things that take up room elsewhere like the bulk supply of paper towels and toilet paper I bought. All I would really need after putting in nice shelves is a step ladder to reach everything when I need it. And if you look at the picture closely you will see a ladder! 🙂
I know a linen closet that would be a very happy space instead of a VERY packed space if I did this.
