Your laundry room is probably the busiest room in the house and also likely the most neglected in terms of decorating.
So when we finished our basement (15 years ago), I made sure we'd make the over-used and under-decorated room a place that we'd want to spend time in. As a busy mom with young kids at the time, I decided to carve out a small craft area within the laundry room. It was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. While the kids were busy drawing, gluing, and painting, I'd be washing, folding, and ironing. The best part of having a dedicated craft corner in the basement is that the mess is out of sight — no longer were we using the dining room table for kids projects, we could actually use it for dining again!
