In this new house, lots of thought went into how the laundry room would function. An orange sliding barn door marks the entry into what can be a fun zone (or that even just feels like one when one’s only activity is folding and ironing). “The door added more color into the adjacent mudroom and marks the laundry room as a kids’ space; it adds an element of surprise and inspires creativity,” Winn says.

As for function, rolling baskets provide plenty of room for the family to keep their laundry sorted.
