As you know, I bounce back
to my laundry room project every now and then.
I came up with a possible solution for a nagging problem…
No, Rosie is not a nagging problem!
(Although she is wet and smelly from all the rain today!)
Lately, I have been trying to figure out how to hide
those hideous tubes and wires behind the machines…
Well, I shouldn’t actually say lately,
since I obsess over this problem every time I am in there!
How awful is that?
I have read that the hoses have to be a certain height above the machine but why is it that I see all these beautiful laundry rooms all over Pinterest that don’t have this problem? And it doesn’t help that I have a front loading washing machine which is flat in the back and does not hide anything! To make it worse, we haven’t replaced the dryer to match the washer so it looks even worse!
So, I was talking to my electrician yesterday about my idea to at least move this outlet further down the wall and out of sight. He told me as a safety precaution, it has to be reachable in case of emergency. He is scheduled to do some other electrical work next week so I will have him take a look and give me some ideas. This area is such an eyesore!
Usually, I just keep a basket sitting on top to hide those awful hoses.
This helps but it’s not perfect.
Since I love the look of hanging pictures on a string,
I decided to give it a try in here…
Not bad, but you can STILL see all the uglies behind them!
So I added back the basket to help with the hiding.
I am not sure if the pictures bring your attention to the wires and hoses
or if they distract from them.
I am going to leave it like this for a few days to see how I feel.
What do you think?
Are the uglies being disguised?
Any other solutions?
