But, in addition to this being the laundry room we also use it to store our cleaning supplies, vacuum, steam cleaner, and we use it as our pantry too.
Our house didn't have a pantry, and the kitchen is just really tiny, so there really wasn't any place to put food. Since the laundry room is right off the kitchen, it made sense to create a "pantry" in there. We originally had just a little shelf in there but, I recently purchased a large, simple wire shelf from Target & stuck it in there to use as our pantry. It works great & we have so much more space now that I'm able to house some of our small appliances on it as well like our blender, toaster, sandwich press & such.
On the other side of the room is where our cleaning stuff lives. We don't have any kind of large closet space to put these in, so I've been thinking about building us a cleaning closet to put in there to hold all of our things. Now that we'll be moving within the next 6 months, I wont be doing that build, but if we were going to continue staying here I would want to. Having a space to put all of that stuff would make the room look so much cleaner & more put together.

I did a post about some of the options I was considering some time ago, here.
I did build some shelves for our house to display pictures on & also to use for storage. I think that there are a lot of things that if your place doesn't come with what you need, there are options for building them. You can build shelves, pantries, kitchen islands, all kinds of things!
What have you built for your home lately?
