Laundry Room Part 2

Let me just tell you, I appreciated every single comment from my post yesterday so much! I loved every bit of feedback, and now you all have me rethinking the cabinets {sorry hubby!}. Hearing that the wire shelves were not all that bad {it's hard when you look at them every day} made me rethink what to do. We still do not have a price quote on the cabinets, but if it comes in over what we have in mind then the wire shelving will stay! Good for the budget, yay!! Also, I have to give credit where credit is due, I forgot to mention that the husband was the one that immediately liked the paint color we chose and he was the deciding factor. Thank goodness for second opinions and good taste!

After your feedback, I did a little more browsing for other options in case we decide to change it up.
First up, I like the look of the solid shelves in this room. They look a little more substantial and the brackets add a small element of design...and I can use my pretty baskets! Shelving is sure to be cheaper than a wall of cabinets, right?
I like that this room has at least one shelf, for easy access to things you have to grab all the time. Maybe we should keep the shelving and add a fun light fixture?
Our room really needs a rug as well. I forgot about that. I just haven't found one that suits the colors yet, and since it gets a ton of traffic it will need to be durable and easy to clean. 
Maybe an indoor/outdoor rug? 
And I also loved the idea of adding "skirting" to the shelves. I think that might be the most economical option and would be a great way to incorporate a fun print and soften the room, since there is no window.
And how cute is this? It really doesn't apply to us because we don't have a sink in the laundry room, but this was too adorable not to add.
So once again, thank you so, so, so much for all of your amazing comments...they mean so much and I appreciate you stopping by to read this little project on my blog! Have a fab day, xo.

Hi! I just stumbled upon your lovely blog. I love the first and second images in this post. I think either the white wooden shelves or cabinets with one shelf underneath would look so nice in your laundry room! What a difference the new paint color made! I don't know why, but I just love DIY projects and seeing the transformation from before to after. So thank you for sharing your project with us! I'll be following!!
