Laundering In Style

The laundry room is the space in your home that is used regularly, but sometimes neglected.

The laundry room should keep all of your washing and drying needs together in one place to allow the rest of the home to stay uncluttered. It should be clean, organized, and most importantly operational to your needs. Whether you have family of sports stars that require multiple loads or you only tackle the chore once a week, it is important that your space provides the necessary functionalities you desire. Take a look at the latest trends in laundry room remodeling and start laundering in style.

Utility Sink

Adding a utility sink to your laundry room gives you the opportunity to multitask. The sink allows you to wash those delicate clothing items that can’t be thrown in the wash and acts as a place to clean any other items that may not be fit for the washer and dryer.

Hanging Racks

Installing a hanging rack provides space to air-dry delicates and hang items that require gentle care. A single bar, a retractable clothesline, or fold-up racks all provide the same service depending on your needs and space availability.

Cabinetry in the laundry room can act as a storage space for all your laundering accessories. Cleaning supplies and detergents can be stored discreetly and upper cabinets can act as a second linen closet if you need the space.

Water Resistant Materials

The laundry room is bound to get messy at some point. Designing an area that uses water-resistant materials makes your space durable and easy to clean. Concrete counters and stone floor tiles create an earthy and natural look.

Planning for Small Space

If your home does not have the space for a separate laundry room, it is easy to transform any spare closet into your own laundry area. Using front-loading designed washer and dryers allows you to stack the washer and dryer in a small area and if you have excess space, allows for storage of your laundry supplies.

Laundry Bins

Keeping all those dirty clothes separate from the ones you’ve just washed is a must and one of the easiest ways to keep everything in order is to add bins or containers to keep everything separate. Make sure to have a few laundry baskets on hand and if your space allows, add built-in storage shelves so that there is never any confusion.

Double Duty Mud Room

Using your laundry room space to double as a mud room is an easy way to keep all things messy in one place. Adding a small bench with hanging hooks above acts as extra storage space for winter coats, sporting equipment, or any other items you might want to store.
