This space proves to be far more than just a laundry room; it also serves as a multifunctional home office and hobby area too. The large L-shaped countertop remains clear for folding laundry and taking on other housekeeping tasks. Plus, storage cabinets above and below the countertop provide the perfect place to store cleaning supplies, extra linens and children's messy arts and crafts supplies.

This home has all the classic architectural elements of a prairie-style home. long flat roofs with big eaves, rows of windows and horizontal lines. Developed in the Midwest by architectural trailblazer Frank Lloyd Wright, the prairie style was built based on the idea that a home should serve all practical needs without being overly embellished or showy. It was influenced by the Arts and Crafts Movement and features many of the same concepts such as built-in furniture, simple materials and open floor plans.
This asymmetrical mantel display has a lively vibe and message. You can find affordable letters at arts and crafts stores to create a word, such as "Joy," or phrase that's meaningful to you and paint the letters in a metallic or any color you wish. This room was designed by Julie Montgomery of Julie Montgomery Interiors as part of home makeovers for families by the nonprofit Dwell with Dignity Atlanta. The mantel previously held a mishmash of books and frames.
As seen on HGTV's Fixer Upper, the craft room was an oasis for mom and her children, so Joanna designed a space that would reflect that passion for creativity. Built-in cabinets provide plenty of storage so that organization is never an issue, while open shelving provides a place to show off colorful objects. The rustic desktop and metallic message board gives the space a splash of personality and ties the design in to the rest of the home, while the children have their own table, just the right size for them, to create their own art while their mom creates hers.
