Referring to your laundry room as a place in your home you’d “retreat to” might not sound like something you’d do, but Joanna Gaines has been open about how much she loves her laundry room. Thanks to an HGTV video from an episode back in June, we’ve gained insight into what exactly makes her laundry room so enjoyable. In this clip, Joanna shares three actionable ideas for how to “make it more of a creative space so that you actually enjoy going in there.”
Her major tricks are to add character with a sign (hers is handmade), showcase accessories like fun lights and subway tiles, and have plenty of storage. Joanna’s ideas for storage include keeping cleaning supplies in baskets and glass jars out of reach of the kids. “I’ve found when things are out in the open and you have cute containers to contain the mess, it actually makes it clutter-free,” she said. These are totally manageable tips you can apply in your own home, too. Watch the video above to get a full look at the Gaines’s space, and you just might start feeling excited about doing laundry. Joanna has the best style advice, as usual!
