Help for my laundry room and to display old wooden hangers
April 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I just got a new washer/dryer and new flooring in my laundry room. The ceiling is very high. I plan to leave 3 walls the light tan color. I want to paint the accent wall (where the hangers are), a color by C&K called "Baby Elephant". It is a darker gray that seems to be more toward brown tones. Does anyone have a interesting idea how to display these old hangers? Any thoughts on what color I should paint the moldings? How about the doors? Cabinets? I live in the country by the mountains so I like the colors that I see out my windows. Actually, the cabinets above W/D don't work either. I can't reach in them because of where appliances are. Any thoughts, help on anything would be appreciated.

I think I would put the hangers between the cabines and put a rack for hanging stuff... Don't know? I have lots of stuff to hang when I do launday... and it's difficult to see how much room you have... I would kill for that washer & dryer... (not really) but they are soooo nice...

I would paint a tall vertical panel (perhaps to the left of the beam) and create a vertical line of hangers. What would be great would be to find some very cool hooks for them - (sorry I did a firefox search....)

Add a tension pole or rod between upper cabinets for hanging clothes, a shelf between cabinets at the bottom.

Some large art on the large wall. Cabinets for supplies on each side of the art that also have a couple of open shelves for some special objects of interest. Almost like a bookcase.
