This Mom of 6 Created the World’s Most Efficient Laundry Room

I never thought I’d swoon over a laundry room — heck, ten years ago I barely even did laundry — but consider me in love…

Blogger Rhonda Batchelor wasn’t happy with her 7-by-6 ½-foot laundry room, so she hit the drawing board to come up with some truly creative ideas. Armed with a $400 budget and a long list of ideas, Rhonda not only managed to utilize every square inch of the room, but she actually made it look stylish in the process. We’re talking stacked baskets, a fold-out ironing board, drying drawers with a built-in mini-fan (yup!) and a faux marble counter top/folding table that’s removable when they need to service the machines — in short, the works.

Check out the virtual tour of her laundry room below.
