Even though my house might not reflect it sometimes (hey, I'm human too), I actually greatly enjoy cleaning. That said, I loathe cleaning baseboards. Sure to do them right it involves buckets and cleaners, rags and... ugh. Just ugh.
Having in-unit laundry machines is a luxury right up there with having a dishwasher, a flood of natural light and perhaps parking. When you get a stain, have guests over or just plain need something clean to wear, there's nothing better than being able to do a quick load without having to schelp all your stuff to the laundromat.

It works great, but by doing that we look a little bit like poor college kids. This built-in laundry rack is a perfect DIY solution, especially as we head into sweater season.
