Should I Remodel The Laundry Room?

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Remodeling

For a room that is always in use, laundry rooms tend to be an afterthought. Most homeowners do not take the time to design or decorate the laundry room. After all, these utility spaces are often awkwardly shaped and small. Since we tend to spend a lot of time in them, it is time to show it some special attention.  Remodelling the laundry room is a great way to improve function, make it look better and feel nicer. Are you ready to do laundry in style? Here are some features you should think about when remodeling the laundry room:

Function

Often, we do more than just wash clothes in this space. Laundry rooms are usually used to store cleaning supplies, random goods, and they sometimes double as a mudroom. While planning out how you want to remodel the room, make sure you design a space that is able to handle a variety of activities. You might want to implement more storage nooks and shelvings or switch out the flooring for something that is easier to maintain.  

Make Laundry Day Easier 

When remodeling the laundry room, you will definitely want to consider how you do laundry. Yes, the way you wash, dry and fold are important factors because the new design should make these activities more manageable to complete. If you have a large family and you tend to do laundry a few days out the week, implementing individual hampers or basket might be more efficient. If you prefer to fold clothes in the laundry room, adding in extra countertop space would be ideal.  Mounting a television in the laundry room could also make laundry days go by much faster.  

Investing in New Appliances 

Tired of the clunky washer and dryer that just does not work like they once did? If you have decided to switch out your old appliances, you will have to determine what kind of washer and dryer you want. Stacked appliances can save on space, but you might need a stool to reach the controls. Front loading machines allow you to expand countertop space over them.  Many of today’s appliances are manufactured in bold hues which are great for adding style or brightening the laundry room. 

Decorating

Decorating the laundry room does not have to be expensive. Experiment with color, personalize the area with rugs, artwork, and family photos.
