a Rafflecopter giveaway
The giveaway is part of the kick off of their #BrilliantHEClean campaign, and to celebrate even further they'll be offering a $100 gift card with the purchase of a Maytag Powerwash machine and 150 oz. Tide. PLUS on top of that they're running an even bigger giveaway with Maytag and Tide where the winner will get a $5,000+ laundry room makeover plus an e-design consultation with the lovely and talented Jenny Komenda of Little Green Notebook!
Here are a few of Jenny's favorite tips to redesign and organize your laundry room (mixed with a few photos of my favorite laundry rooms on the interwebz):
Dealing with a dark, cave-like laundry room is a chore in and of itself! By taking off the doors on a few of your upper cabinets, you'll open up the space and create a place to store baskets. In this laundry room, we assigned baskets for every member of the house, which makes sorting a breeze!
Why not decoupage or paint insides of cabinets for a fun pop of color? It's a guaranteed smile each and every time you reach for your detergent.

Don't like the cabinets, floors and countertops in your laundry room? Every surface can be painted or resurfaced! For less than $30 in materials, the outdated linoleum, brick pavers and old, dark cabinets were updated in this laundry room with paint and with a concrete overlay product.
A rolling laundry butler can be your best friend, doing triple duty with a hanging bar, a rolling basket and a drying rack. It's the perfect choice for a laundry room with limited space that hasn't been updated in a few decades.

Don't neglect your laundry room walls! Hanging interesting art and mirrors will elevate your room and make it feel less utilitarian and more “homey”. Suddenly those 400 loads of laundry most of us will do this year might actually be enjoyable!
Use a slab of stone or a simple piece of painted MDF on top of the washer/dryer units to create a folding station and to prevent socks from slipping in between the appliances.
