This screened decal may simply look decorative, but in actuality, it is perfectly multifunctional. For one, it adds charm with its "laundry" sign and basket cutout taking a simple door to the next level. But secondly, it makes it difficult to see directly into the laundry room, which is always helpful in case you have guests coming over and there are still piles of clothes on the floor. No one will have to know about the mess that lies behind it.
