Show the Laundry Room Some Love

May 26, 2017
The laundry room has a tough job. It’s a workhorse much like the kitchen and the bathroom, but it’s typically not shown very much love when it comes to design. Bathrooms and kitchens typically tend to get all of the attention, and by attention we mean beautiful tile and stonework.
