Laundry Room Photos: HGTV Green Home 2009

At the HGTV Green Home 2009, a hardworking laundry room – complete with Energy Star-rated appliances – serves as a family communication center.

The laundry room doubles as a mudroom where kids can kick off flip-flops or adults can store gardening clogs.

Due to the laundry room's proximity to the back door, it makes an ideal communication center for the family.

Family members can jot down to-dos on the chalkboard, post funny photos and put up other ephemera on the bulletin board.

The compact yet hardworking space houses a Kenmore Elite HE5t Steam Front-Load Washer and a Kenmore Elite HE5t Steam Front-Load Dryer.

Organic elements include bamboo window blinds, a cardboard palm that rests on the window sill and basks in the bright Florida sunshine, and rattan baskets that double as laundry bins.

Rattan laundry hampers are a stylish yet practical option for this workspace.

A recessed sliding door adds privacy, and tiled floors clean up this otherwise austere workspace.
