Deluxe Laundry Rooms

Whirlpool Family StudioThe Washington Post had an article today about the trend toward increasingly deluxe laundry rooms. Highlighted was the new Whirlpool Family Studio line of laundry appliances, which includes the expected washer/dryer as well as a drying cabinet, an ironing station, and a clever jetted sink for agitating very delicate clothes. I love it, though it certainly does seem a little over the top. I'll have to settle for slowly migrating my laundry room in that direction, though I have quite a way to go before I achieve "deluxe" status. (I can't really complain, though; it's a big, ground-level room with two windows.)

In related news, Cheryl Mendelson (author of our beloved Home Comforts) has a new book out called Laundry (three guesses what it's about). I haven't even finished Home Comforts yet!


  • I didn't think anyone would ever finish Home Comforts! I treat my copy more as a reference, because the idea of reading and understanding all of it exhausts me.

    I have just skimmed the first page of your blog and found a few really useful tips, especially about the seperate credit cards. I look forward to reading more!
