What tips can you offer to make it more functional? Would you choose option #1 or #2?? Do you like a stacked washer and dryer?
Next time I update you, I’ll share an actual mood board including some of my favorite decor items that I’m eyeing up for this space. Tonight we remove the appliances as I start to ponder paint colors, stencils and cabinetry options.
