If you are remodeling your home, consider remodeling or redesigning your laundry room with these laundry room design ideas.
Whether we like it or not, we all spend way too much time doing laundry, so as you remodel your home, think consciously about redesigning your laundry room as well. Organizing and livening up this space can make your daily chores more bearable, and fetch you a higher resale value.
Maximize Storage Space in your Laundry Room Design
It goes without saying that every laundry room needs a fair amount of storage, but think smart when designing your storage options. The laundry room is a fantastic place to add additional storage, and if space allows, we suggest adding cabinetry above your washer and dryer as well as on the opposite wall. Cabinetry above the washer and dryer is a fantastic place to store all necessities for traditional laundry room tasks whereas taller pantry-like cabinetry can allow for storage of cleaning appliances like mops and brooms. Pullout or fold-out ironing centers and rod boxes which allow a place to hang clothes right out of the dryer are very popular options as well.
Make Your Laundry Room Design Multi-Functional
Do you use your laundry room for more than just laundry? Most people do! Whether your laundry room also functions as a pet-feeding area, a home office, or a craft station, there are a plethora of options for your space. There are many specialty cabinets on the market that can camouflage into your design. The laundry room is a fabulous place to maximize your opportunities for pets, cleaning or hobby storage.
Make Your Laundry Room Stylish
Don’t skip on style in this utilitarian room. Take this opportunity to choose a fun stain or color for your cabinetry, or choose a unique backsplash or lighting fixture to bring personality into the room. The more your design speaks to you, the more you will enjoy being in the room. Also, because the laundry room is typically a stand-alone room, you can take chances in this room you may not take elsewhere in the home.
Ultimately, the design of your laundry room should speak to you. Make it fully-functional and beautiful, and even your daily chores will become less maddening. Believe it or not, you can have a beautiful laundry room you actually enjoy spending time in!
