The laundry room or the exercise room is a place where smelly clothes have to be dealt with. And the house furniture required in these rooms is Spartan. A basic chair or stool with a yoga mat and futon creates a nice edge. Going a tad crazy with color here would be worth it with the walks, but no over the top décor either.
The house furniture in these spaces is basic, not too expensive given that this is a place that has to deal with the wear and tear. The sliding wall cupboards with panels, separating articles of clothing, are a wonderful option. The ideal flooring in this terrain should be rugged given the rough use of furniture moving about from one side to the other. The house furniture useful in this area would easy to maintain, but should never be ignored. Moist and dust may build up so special care on a daily basis is a mantra.
