Laundry Room Ideas
Because of their double- or triple-duty potential, laundry rooms are a good investment for you and your family. After you purchase your washer and dryer, think about installing some built-ins for your cleaning necessities. If you still have room to spare, consider what else the area can be used for, and set aside corners, cabinets or shelves for other purposes. Once all the functional aspects are out of the way, you can finally incorporate those unique laundry room decorating ideas to complete the makeover and liven up those mundane chores.
How do I add storage to my laundry room remodel?
As you look to various laundry room design ideas for remodel inspiration, remember to help it serve multiple functions by incorporating clever storage. Include built-ins, shelves and cabinets to store supplies like hangers, clothespins, sewing kits, irons and detergent —the leftover space can store pet accessories and seasonal items. To ensure that you deal with clothes right away, give yourself a table nearby the washer for folding, a pull-out drying rack for hanging and a hidden ironing board for crisply ironed clothes. Making it a one-stop shop will ensure that all your chores get done at once — no excuses! Check out other’s spaces and pick out the laundry room ideas that make the most sense for your storage needs.
What else can laundry rooms be used for?
If you have a smaller home, using your utility room for multiple purposes is a great space-saving technique. Because it often has an utility sink, it naturally is a great place to feed and bathe your furry friends. It also easily transitions into a mudroom, where you can store extra shoes, sports equipment and winter clothing. One of the best laundry room ideas for larger spaces is to use it as a small office — it can be a drop station for mail, cell phones and keys and even function as a craft or wrapping station. Think about what your family needs and incorporate those features into your laundry room design to start getting the most out of your space.
How can I decorate my laundry room?
With plenty of laundry room decorating ideas to choose from, you’re sure to find something that speaks to you. Because there isn't typically a lot of counter space to spare, take advantage of your walls when decorating. Bright paint or wallpaper can help make chores pleasant, while fun signs, posters, murals and wall decals can enhance laundry room designs of all styles. Think of your storage containers as laundry room decor too; find bins, baskets and hangers with fun patterns and colorful fabrics to bring life to the space.
