5 ideas for a beautiful and functional laundry room
The laundry room is not necessarily our favourite room in our home, but why not make it more convivial; and more importantly, more practical, in order to brighten up the quite tedious task of doing laundry?
In addition to it being the place where you do your laundry, this room can also allow you to arrange for some extra cabinet storage. This room could even become a peaceful haven for those who use it almost every other day.
To make doing laundry more pleasant, and to create an efficient space, here are 5 ideas for a beautiful and functional laundry room.
1 – Install a support or clothing line to hang clothes
For articles of clothing that can’t be dried in the dryer, set up a place for them to air-dry. A line, a support or even a ladder installed near the washer could be very useful for your delicate items.
2 – Install a folding counter
Even if some people prefer to gather their clean clothes in a basket to fold in front of their favourite tv show, for practical reasons, a counter next to your dryer is a must. You could even install a counter on the top of your front load washer and dryer.
3 – Add a decorative touch
Obviously, when we think of a laundry room, we think about its practical uses and functionalities. However, because of all the time spent folding or ironing clothes, the aesthetics of the room are just as important and should be taken into consideration. Choose a bright and dynamic wall colour, and add a few decorations like frames and flowers. Why not transform the task into a more pleasant one by putting a small radio within reach?
4 – Install cabinets
Laundry detergent, stain remover, softener and bleach are some of the products you’ll need when it’s laundry time. By installing cabinets around and on top of your machines, you will have enough space to store your laundry room essentials. You could even store your iron, ironing board, sewing accessories and other items needed for the maintenance of your clothes.
