One of the busiest rooms in the house and usually the most unorganized and cluttered space to boot!! For most of us it is the main entryway in to our home. So why is it that we Neglect the Laundry/Mudroom and dismiss it for what it truly could be? A great functional space! House & Home's March issue does a great piece on a fresh new look for your Laundry/Mudroom with just 7 steps. "Their Makeover of the Month". Now these steps can be used in any house, because lets face it most Laundry/Mudrooms are all the same. With a better layout for functionality there is a much better chance that your space will stay organized and clean, and who isn't looking for that! The issue also illustrates some great storage pieces that you can find at Canadian Tire and for a great price! It just keeps getting better and better! In general the H&H March issue is very good, but definitely take a peak at the Laundry/Mudroom section, because don't forget the tax man is helping with the bill this year, and this type of update to your home falls completely under the Home Improvement 2009 tax bill! "The program offers a tax credit of up to 15 per cent of renovation costs over $1,000, up to a maximum of $10,000 in renovation costs. The maximum benefit is thus 15 per cent of $9,000 or $1,350.

So this is the year for that dream Laundry Room, what are you waiting for!!
Until next time,
