re-energized by design: the laundry room challenge

This is a sponsored post.

Even though our team is no longer in the running, it’s still fun to keep up with what’s going on in the Re-Energized By Design competition. This week, the remaining three teams made over their laundry rooms.

In addition to $500 and energy efficient lighting from GE, the homeowners each received an brand new set of Frigidaire Affinity laundry equipment. These are not your average high-efficiency washers & dryers — this is serious technology in action here. The Affinity dryer will dry a full load in less than 30 minutes, and the washer features allergen reduction and sanitizing features along with having the highest energy star rating. And aesthetically they please, too (though I have to wonder why no one picked the red option).

Love what those scrappy Sayers did in their space with that upcycled laundry drum light fixture. Their creative approach is always surprising, and will be tough to beat in the final round. In the end, the Mendes family’s pastel laundry room didn’t make the cut — that leaves the Sayers and the Reillys to duke it out in the kitchen challenge! who do you think will win?!

What a unique light fixture, great idea! Love repurposing old things.

Love the way this room turned out. The colors are calming

I like the steel light fixture. Keep up the hard work folks

I like what you have done with the place. It really has a modern feeling to it.

Never seen this before. What a great idea.

Great video! Enjoyed watching it.

Thanks for all the props everyone, but sadly, or team was eliminated in the previous challenge. The Sayers family is doing some pretty amazing things in this competition, though.

The laundry drum light is the coolest thing! I’ve seen other projects with wash drums, but that’s the first one that is actually attractive.

That is such a unique light fixture, yet so perfect for a laundry room!

Love this laundry room, wish mine looked this nice. And that is such a brilliant idea for a light fixture!

Good job with the laundry! Light fixture, beautiful it is. Nice pick!
