If you're not lucky enough to have a dedicated laundry room, and your washer and dryer share a home with your office, hallway, or another space, try concealing them with a curtain. A curtain can add a bit of color and pattern and will instantly neaten up the space, letting other focal points take center stage. If you have a front-opening washer, you can even set a shelf on top of it, creating a surface for much prettier furnishings and accessories. You can do the same to hide your dishwasher or dated kitchen cabinets, too. Abracadabra!
