5 Laundry Room Essentials
High-end laundry rooms have become increasingly popular recently. Websites like Pinterest and Houzz have made the trend more mainstream, and many families are opting to renovate their existing laundry room to create a more aesthetic and functional space. If you’re thinking about upgrading your laundry room in the future, consider these options to make the most of it.
Smart Shelving. Properly placed shelves can make a big difference. We suggest opting for shelving under the sink and above the washer and dryer. Under sink shelving is great for storing clothing baskets and other supplies, while above laundry shelving is the perfect place to store soap and fabric softener.
Cabinets. When it comes to a laundry room, the more storage the better. For easy access to supplies, opt for a glass front or open cabinets so you can see the contents.
Proper Lighting. Proper lighting in a laundry room is not often a consideration, but it’s important. A laundry room needs great lighting to spot stains or color transfers in clothing. You’ll be amazed at the difference it makes.
Expandable Drying Racks. If you air dry your clothing, build a drying rack into your laundry room for easy access. Many racks can be collapsed into the wall when not in use, and expanded when needed, preventing wasted space.
Pull-Out Ironing Board. Similar to drying racks, ironing boards frequently get in the way. Instead of a traditional standing ironing board, opt for a pull-out version you can store away when it’s not in use.
