One Room Challenge – Laundry Room

Hello friends! We are super excited to be here with you with the launch of our new name and website – Ang and Joey! We thought there would be no better way than to start this journey as guest participants with One Room Challenge! What do you think? A few years back we took on the challenge when we renovated our powder room. It was such a fun time and we are ready for the challenge again. This time we will be renovating our laundry room – it desperately needs an update.

If you are curious to know more – go take a peek at what the One Room Challenge is all about. You can also check out our progression from the last challenge.


Here is a photo so you can see what we are starting with. This was taken when we did our final walkthrough of the home before we purchased it.

Please disregard the crooked photo.

The laundry room seems to be one of the most overlooked spaces and this definitely was overlooked. To the left is a refrigerator and across from the refrigerator is another cabinet. Our goal is to gut this entire space by replacing everything.

Here is a rough sketch of our vision…


Laundry Sketch

  • Built in Refrigerator
  • Folding Table
  • Drying Rack or Rod
  • Ample Overhead Cabinets and Laundry Bin area.

and an elevation sketch of the bench area…

We also created a project list so our vision can come to fruition…

  • FLOOR AND BUILD PLANS – Draw a floor plan and elevation sketches for exact measurements of space.
  • CABINETS – Remove and Replace with new layout and design. Replace upper cabinets, build surround around refrigerator, build lower cabinets – one for farmhouse sink, and another with a drawer and open space below.
  • FLOORING – Remove and Replace flooring with black and cream tile in a diagonal pattern.
  • DROP ZONE – Build a bench with underneath storage for shoes and hooks for hanging necessities.
  • DOOR – Replace the door with a floor to ceiling window to the outdoors.
  • FOLDING TABLE – Build a folding table positioned on top of the washer and dryer, this will include building a lower surround for the washer and dryer.
  • NEW COUNTERTOP – A honed marble countertop that coordinates with the paint and flooring.
  • WALL TREATMENT – Use vertical plank/shiplap to create interest – painted the same color as the cabinets, paint walls a light cream.
  • LIGHTING – Replace lighting by removing the fluorescent lighting.

We are beyond ready for this challenge! We especially are looking forward to a laundry room where we will be inspired to wash, clean, and fold clothes. Are you ready to see our vision come to life?

Let’s Go!

Until next time…


Every. Single. Moment.

Ang and Joey

FYI: Because our website was not up and live when the One Room Challenge began, we are beginning our challenge in week two.
