I could spend a day in that laundry room! The Gabrielle rail-and-peg system from Pottery Barn includes shelves, a hanging canvas hamper and a drying rack that can be configured to suit various spaces and organizing needs.
I would only have one shelf and instead have cupboards above it. Love the tiling. I would put a metal rod below the shelf and hang stuff there; like small metal baskets where soap and things are stored.
