Update: Parts of my Minimalist Home and Apartment – The Laundry Room

I originally posted photos of my minimalist home and apartment here, and thought an update was in order to see what has changed since I have last posted.

Our laundry room has changed significantly since my last post.

This is what it was before:

With a rack to the left.

Now, it looks like this.

My partner has put up a new shelf to use that space that was just DEAD above the machines, and added clear boxes for my things like spare shampoos, toiletries, and so on, and the other boxes are to hold things we use for cleaning, or polishing our leather goods.

The boxes are all perfectly printed out on paper, labelled and super freakin’ organized.


The rack has stayed, but we added a new shelf to the rack to add more boxes and things for more boxes:

The back of the door has a hook for my partner’s dirty work clothes for apartment work, plus a recycling bin for glass (we don’t want Little Bun getting into the one in the kitchen).

This is also our new Dyson Animal V8 vacuum and it is INCREDIBLE. We owned the original Dyson Animal, and this one is much improved with a bigger vacuum head that doesn’t clog up with long hair now.

These are brooms and mops for the house. This spot is near the A/C slash heating unit and is a dead, awkward space. My partner found a use for it, bless his heart.

    I have a Dyson stick too and it drives me crazy to take out my long hair that gets trapped in the head (I have to cut it out it’s disgusting).

    We are looking for a new vacuum for the house and couldn’t decide which Dyson to get. I’ll definitely keep my eye out for the Dyson V8 Animal, thanks!

      I hated having to cut out my hair from the vacuum. I would sit there with scissors and hack away at my hair caught inside. I don’t do this with the V8 any more, it is SO MUCH EASIER. It just dumps out. No issues.

        I’m so excited! We just picked up a Dyson V8 for Black Friday.

          An excellent vacuum. Won’t get your hair caught in it .. I used to spend my weekends cutting it out of the vacuum (hair is STRONG and THICK!)
