It's time to come clean: We spend more hours in the laundry room than we care to admit. So why not spruce up this space with a well-timed update? Tucked away in basements and backyard sheds and often hidden in a home's crevasses, the laundry room was created to disappear. But the dingy, dank and downright industrial laundry room is a thing of the past. New, sophisticated washers and dryers, innovative shelving and hide-away appliances, coupled with do-it-yourself ideas to brighten, organize and maximize square footage, are helping to create the vision of a high-tech, stylish laundry room. And now it's your turn to take your space from eww to elegant.
