Laundry Room Reveal using Flow Wall

Sharing is caring!

TGIF! Our spring break is officially here. Sadly I’m not going to Cancun to party it up like a bunch of MTV teenagers (As if!). But, I am hanging with two guys! My two little guys that is. I’m looking forward to crafting a little bit with them and maybe catch up on some sewing. My boys both like to sew. They also like to build with hammers. That’s my parenting mission at work. I vow to teach them to do everything that I know how to do no matter which gender that talent is associated with.

But, enough about me, what you are really here to see is the laundry room reveal! Before I give you the whole 5′ x 8′ tour, I want to show you how the Flow Wall cabinets and shelving are installed. Because you aren’t going to believe how easy it was. Before installing the cabinets, I installed the slat wall in no time!

The cabinets were shipped flat and need to be assembled, but there are detailed directions included. And if you’ve ever put together any flat packed furniture, this will be a breeze.

Each cabinet comes with four metal brackets that tilt into the Flow Wall. I inserted the hangers into the Flow Wall panel and gave them a skeptical glance.

Having just installed cabinets in my garage using a french cleat system, I wasn’t ready to trust those little metal brackets. I lifted the first cabinet (and was very relieved that I could lift them myself without assistance) and lined up the metal bar spanning the back of the cabinet over the brackets. The photo below shows the cabinet seated in the brackets and after I installed one shelf (which is hung after the cabinet is installed.)

Then I gently let the cabinet slide down until it was seated into the brackets. I might have yelled out “Suhweet!” Because — honestly — that was the easiest cabinet installation I had ever attempted. Plus, they seem solid and held up to my test of pulling on them!

I saved the best part, they are totally repositionable! Slide them side-to-side. Or remove them and move the brackets. No screws, no nails, they are easily reconfigured.

By sliding the one cabinet flush against the wall, I had room to install a twin next to the first.

The doors are attached with a hidden hinge. The white coated doors are hard and glossy, which means they should be a snap to wipe clean!

After the doors were installed, I simply added the two handles. Again, everything was super easy and the directions were easy to follow.

And the shelves? Easy peasy! Simply slip the top of the mounting bracket in and then lower the shelf until it snaps into the bottom ridge.

The wire shelves can be removed and re-installed infinite number of times. This allows for customizable storage on the fly.

Like the shelving, these translucent storage bins simply slip into the grooves to hold supplies you reach for on a regular basis.

Here is my laundry room Flow Wall in all its nakedness. Shhh, don’t tell Flow Wall that I shared naked photos of their products online.

You can look back, I’m sorry you had to avert your eyes. Here they are loaded up with my somewhat excessive collection of vases.

The other cabinet has room for all our beach towels and workout “stuff”.

There is enough open storage for everything I need to grab while doing laundry. And yet, it is conveniently hidden in the Flow Wall décor bins.

Speaking of the décor bins, check out this cute little storage cube that turns the bins into drawers.

The bins also come in a jumbo size which is perfect for hiding all my DIY Laundry Detergent supplies!

The Flow Wall shelves are coated so they make an excellent drying rack for rags waiting to be laundered.

More storage than you can shake a stick at.

I really love that the smart tile adhesive tiles work with the new wall color.

 Two of my favorite additions to the room are the sunny yellow chandelier…

…and this sign I bought at Carolina Pottery (my new favorite discount decor spot.)

I had some leftover pieces of Flow Wall panels that I installed on a short section of wall.

Just enough room to hold cleaning and dusting supplies.

The valance is still just the loose fabric draped over the rod. But, hopefully one day soon I’m going to make it a faux roman shade.

Okay, just one more look at my new laundry room wall. Do you remember the before?

And now the ahhhh-after:

Can you believe it is the same room? Yeah, me either. I absolutely adore the Flow Wall System and I’m thanking my lucky stars that they offered to send me their products to try.

Disclosure:  I have been compensated for my time and received the Flow Wall System compliments of Flow Wall. However, the ideas and words are all my own. I was not told what to write. I believe you have the right to know when a post is sponsored. Regardless of whether a post is sponsored or not, I believe in honesty, truthfulness, and complete transparency in my posts.

    oh gosh. i have laundry room envy like you wouldnt believe. ANY of these products would be my favorite if they would come to my house! can they be installed on block walls?

      Linda Weeks says:

      Hey, I’d like to know that too! We have cinder block basement walls, can we figure a way to put these wonderful items up with that limitation? Thanks, you have a swell blog!

      Brittany (aka Pretty Handy Girl) says:

      Amanda, sorry for the delay, yes they can but you need to use special concrete fasteners purchased at your local hardware store. I think they are molly bolts. I believe you will have to pre-drill holes. But, once you Flow Wall is hung you can change the shelves and cabinets anytime you want super easily!

    Lyndsay says:

    Amazing! You have a way of writing your posts so they seem very approachable and not at all intimidating!

    Sarah R says:

    I love the Flow Decor shelves – they look like the Ikea floating shelves – they’d be great for putting smaller items up without worrying about edges getting caught on the wire shelving

    I have to save my pennies. I want this in my garage. I love the wall cabinets because they can hide stuff, like my paint cans, which are not all that pretty. Great job on the LR makeover.

    Looks great! I got new laundry machines, but I still need storage. I’ll add this to the wish list! (husband loves how long it’s getting…)

    So very nice! I hope I can have my own laundry room some day. CAn you tell me what that fabric is and where you got it? thanks.

    Erin K says:

    I love all of the wall cabinets! ‘Looks like an easy way to hide away items that do not need to be in reach of my two-year-old…I mean, I’m pretty sure he would find a way to get to them if he really wanted to, but it’s a good thought, right?

  13. Sharon H
    Sharon H says:

    I am SOOOOOoooooo putting these on my wish/dream/fantasy list! What is my favorite? Well boy howdy girlfriend, you honestly want me to choose???? Ok, those bins that hide things, but what would they be without the shelves and what would the shelves be without the cabinets and well, you have to install the wall unit first….. We have invited my daughter and SIL to move in with us and have grand plans for our basement great room to be turned in to a joint hobby room. This system would be awesome!

  14. Amy
    Amy says:

    Any of the products would be great! I need to clean up my laundry room and find a place to store my painting supplies!

    I wish I could get my laundry room looking like this. Right now it’s dark and dreary with old dark oak cabinets.

  17. Justine
    Justine says:

    The reveal is GORGEOUS! I’m super jealous. Because I rent, I’m kinda limited in which products I could install (even though my landlord would probably ok it), but I’d love a cabinet set for my studio space.

  18. Janet
    Janet says:

    I definitely like this storage system and the great tutorial. I’ve FB shared it, Pinned it, Liked it. Of course I couldn’t help but think a nice Turquoise & Yellow Sinkadoodle would look nice on your washer, dryer or laundry sink. 😉

    Stephanie Moore says:

    I love everything about the flow system. I guess if I had to pick one it would be the opening shelving. So much I can do with that. Love what you have done with it!

  20. Renea
    Renea says:

    I love your laundry room. The Flow System is really cool. I have the perfect wall in my laundry for the Flow System. Thanks for the great giveaway and the inspiration.

  21. Christie
    Christie says:

    The end result with Flow Wall is perfection ! I love the way you made it fit your space and look so tidy. I think this would be a great addition to our garage. Going on my list of “MUST HAVE” . Beautiful job as usual Britt!!!

  22. Belinda
    Belinda says:

    What a difference in the before and after! You did a beautiful job on the remodel. I love the Flow Wall System! I’ve been wanting to make a craft room, and this looks easy enough….and it’s so versatile!

  23. Benita
    Benita says:

    Can’t decide which I like best! This is quite the system! I just love the idea that there are so many ways to display it.

  24. Sandra O
    Sandra O says:

    I love many of their products, but I would love to hang bikes in the garage with the horizontal bike rack. Also, it would be great to hang the ladders instead of leaning them against the wall.

  25. Tati
    Tati says:

    LOVE IT! Your laundry room looks amazing! I would have to say that the wall itself is my favorite, since without it, none of the beautifulness would happen!

  26. Amy
    Amy says:

    I would truly love this system in our shop! How great to be able to organize and put away items rather than stack and cram them like I do now. The fact that you can slide and move everything to accommodate new configurations is super cool! I really like the different sized Flow Wall cabinets.

  27. Natalie Bickham
    Natalie Bickham says:

    I LOVE the clear bins! I have been needing something like this in my dull boring laundry room – I have two cabinets with fixed shelves designed to hold NOTHING. Just about everything I’d want to put in a cabinet is too tall. 🙁

  28. Brittany (aka Pretty Handy Girl)
    Brittany (aka Pretty Handy Girl) says:

    Thank you all for your glowing comments about my laundry room and the Flow Wall system. I was so relieved by how easy it was to install. Because the day I was installing it was also the day that we fought like crazy to keep my son from getting dehydrated and require a hospital visit a third time. Apparently setting a timer and giving him 2 tsp. of gatorade every 15 minutes is a good technique. Although, it made it kind of tough when working on a project. 😉

    Sandy Yarbrough says:

    I love the cabinets!! They would hid a multitude of sins in there!!! What I could do with that system i my utility room!!!

  30. Roxanne
    Roxanne says:

    Snort. I have a somewhat excessive collection of vases, as well. Also, I never can find the right storage for my beach towels.

    Which Flow Wall product do I like best? So hard to choose. I guess I’d have to go with the décor cube that turns the bins into drawers. So versatile.

    Thank you for showing how you redid your laundry room (it looks absolutely fantastic, by the way) and for introducing us to the Flow Wall products.

    I moved into a new house this year and I’m missing my built in cabinets in my office from my last class. These look perfect for installing in my new craft/office space! Thanks, Julie

  32. Sheri C
    Sheri C says:

    Boy that is a really tough question! I think I like the cabinets and the bins the best, it’s very hard to pick only one. But I think I will be looking into this for our garage and my studio.

  33. elissa
    elissa says:

    we have a tiny condo and this would be perfect in our laundry closet, they have so many great products with this system, I love it all! The cupboards and shelves are great, and everything is so interchangeable!

  34. Rebecca
    Rebecca says:

    How sad is it that I think this would be perfect for the wall behind my desk so that I could organize (finally?!?!) my office. I love the whole wall system and it’s a toss up between the cube and the shelves..

  35. Laur
    Laur says:

    Love the little side bins with the flowers. Always need something pretty in the laundry room!! Of course the sign adds the wonderful amount of humor needed too.

  36. Jennifer Madigan
    Jennifer Madigan says:

    I love how streamline the baskets are. They would work great with the whole system or just on their own.

  37. Paula Dutton
    Paula Dutton says:

    I would love to have this in our garage, our mudroom AND my craft room! Just wondered how much “stuff” you have to move to a better place or get rid of?

    gina says:

    I LOVE your new laundry room, everything about it is cheery! I so would love to make this happen in my own laundry room, as it is now looks like a dungeon .

    The wall unit is completely awesome! and I love the window fabric! good job here. love it!

    Ann says:

    So cute! Your new laundry room would ALMOST make laundry fun! 😉 I love the Storage Cubes; they’re so functional and attractive.

    melle e says:

    I want this so bad…. We are taking a room that’s too small for anything and making it a laundry room (to get my washer and dryer OUT. of. my. KITCHEN.) and sewing/craft room for me. It will also serve as pantry storage and storage for my small appliances that aren’t used every day and my mason jars through the year until it’s time to make jam again. 🙂

    I NEED this. NEED. LOL!

    I would start with:


    And I have to say, I don’t think I would stop there!

    Cassie says:

    The storage bins are so useful and I love the two drawer system. Sadly my raffle copter did not work 🙁 so I wasn’t able to enter all parts. I’d love to win however. My husband is drill disabled.

  42. Katherine
    Katherine says:

    I love them ALL~ I want my new laundry room to look JUST. LIKE. YOURS!!!!!!! I like the storage bins, the adjustable shelves, the wire racks for hanging…… Oh my!! What’s not to luuurrrrrrrve! Eeeeekkkk!

  43. Shell S
    Shell S says:

    That looks incredible! Great job 🙂 I wish my laundry room looked HALF as good. Entered twice. Fingers crossed lol

  44. sue

    I would love the system that you have used in your laundry room. It looks easy to install, you can vary the placement and when you’re done, it looks great. What more could I want?

  45. Melinda KE
    Melinda KE says:

    Wow, I love how the room turned out…it’s very bright and cheery (and super organized!). 🙂 This system would be perfect to organize a garage and I like that you can mix open shelves, cabinets. and bins!

  46. Louise
    Louise says:

    I love the whole Flow Wall System. What a great organization system. I’d love a chance to win it as I’m moving into a new house soon & it’d look great in the new laundry room. I also love your blog.

  47. Melissa McClain
    Melissa McClain says:

    I love all the products! Oh the things I could do with them – actually make more room for the 6 of us in a 3 bedroom house.

  48. Angie M

    I like the 24 sq ft Lawn and Garden Starter Set for my garage. I have my gardening stuff scattered all over the garage.

  49. Lucy
    Lucy says:

    You did an amazing job on this project, Brittany. I have a small laundry room and could certainly make use of this. The “starter package” is ideal, but I really like those metal shelves. What a versatile product with endless combinations.

    Maureen says:

    Hi there! I found your ite through the linky at Oopsey Daisy and had to come over and check it out. I am so glad I did! I love your new laundry room, but I also clicked all around your blog and am so impressed with everything I have seen! I am now proud to say I am your newest follower. I can’t wait to see what you do next and will be trolling through the archives as well I am sure.

    Thanks for a very informative and helpful blog site, truly one of the best I have ever seen. I hope you win with the laundry room.

    What color are the walls in your laundry room? Just put in white and grey cabinets and this color would be perfect. Thanks!

  52. Cheryl
    Cheryl says:

    The question that nobody seems to be asking is where did that adorable ironing board cover come from? This would be perfect with my laundry room colors!

  53. Linda Pemberton
    Linda Pemberton says:

    This looks amazing! I love the little curtain and the spray painted light fixture! I priced this system online and it is kinda pricey. I have a very small weird shaped laundry room, but it would still cost me several hundred for the system to do just the wall over the W/D. It is still a very impressive system, however, and you did a great job!

    Liz rodriguez says:

    I have just viewed your Laundry room, fell in love with it, I am especially interested in the fabric you used in your window. Would you mind telling where I can purchase some of that fabric? The designer, name of print… I have been looking everywhere for the right fabric to complement my wall color and I know that will work perfect. Thank you.

Of course it depends on your room (someone with an amazing room full o’ light could make it look stunning) but in our experience, that color’s just not muddy enough not to get blindingly bright on the walls.
