|I suppose I could have closed the washer for the sake of the picture, but I read somewhere that leaving it open helps it to dry out and prevent mold from growing. So unless there are clothes in it, it stays open.|
My parents have a nice enough finished laundry room, but their laundry room is also the connecting doorway to their garage, so they breeze through theirs often. That makes more sense, although it's not like it's their hang out spot or anything. I've never heard my mom say, "I'm going to go drink some tea and catch up on mail in the laundry room." But that must be what people do when they have professionally finished laundry rooms.
See that sink between the washer and dryer? It was there when we moved in. The drain it's connected to doesn't even really work, since it turns out the pipes under the floor are broken. We've bypassed that drain for our other needs. So we don't use the sink. In fact, I'm wondering how long it will take to fill up with lint. Right now there is just a fine dusting on the inside. I try not to touch it to let it fill up naturally.
I do love that shelf above the washer, though. That was also there when we moved in. It's probably one of the nicer things left behind by the previous owners.
My laundry room is an ordinary laundry room. And it is 100% effective.
