5 Ways You Can Plan the Perfect Laundry Room for Your Home

November 20th, 2020 | by caronq

 

Nowadays, space for a laundry room is a luxury in most American homes. As such, more and more homeowners are investing in home remodeling services in order to carve out some space for a laundry room. To make the most of your laundry room, however, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

  • Surface Area
    The laundry room is a good place to fold your clothes once they are dry. However, it can be frustrating and difficult to do so when you don’t have a designated folding space in the room itself. With that in mind, when you’re planning for your laundry room, be sure to add some more surface area in the room as folding space.
  • Pick the Right Paint Color
    Custom home construction experts advise choosing the right paint color for your laundry room when you’re in the planning phase. This is due to the fact that since the laundry room can be a cramped area, the right color can make such a huge difference in making the room feel more spacious.
  • Install a Sink
    If you have family members who are active in sports or work in messy environments, chances are mud and dirt could cling to their clothing. Unfortunately, once this happens, you can’t just throw the clothes into the washer to clean them. Instead, you’ll have to wash them first in a sink, getting rid of the gunk first. This is why installing a sink in your laundry room is a great idea. That way, you won’t have to pre-wash the clothes in the kitchen or bathroom sink.
  • Add a Few Cabinets
    Apart from the sink, don’t hesitate to install a few cabinets in the laundry room as well. This will give you space for everything, from dirty clothing to cleaning supplies. 
  • Upgrade to a Stackable Washer and Dryer
    As stated before, a laundry room is often a cramped space, and, therefore, every single section is valuable. This can make fitting both a washer and dryer in the room a difficult task. Thankfully, experts recommend that you simply upgrade to a stackable washer and dryer to help you save space in the laundry room without having to sacrifice one appliance. Alternatively, if you really don’t have space for even a stackable washer and dryer, consider upgrading to a smart all-in-one washer and dryer instead.
