3 Tips for Making the Most Out of Your Laundry Room

We spend countless hours in the laundry room and while it’s meant to be a functional space, that doesn’t mean it has to look unpleasant. Laundry rooms have come a long way and there’s no reason you can’t make it just as nice as any other room in your home if that’s what you want to do. Here are some laundry room design tips that can help lighten your load.


Make it pleasing to the eye

Since you spend so much time in the laundry room, make it personal. Hang some fun artwork or laundry-themed accessories. Use fabric every chance you get (on the wall, on the windows, around the base of a sink, etc). Install backsplash. Add pops of color on the wall, on the countertops and even on the cabinets if that’s what you love. The laundry room is often set apart from the rest of the rooms in the house, so if you want to decorate in colors that don’t complement the rest of your home, go for it!

Design with your needs in mind

If your current laundry room doesn’t suit you, sit down and think about what you need to function properly. If your laundry room is off the garage or mudroom, or even in the basement, you might need a utility sink. If you’re a pet owner, perhaps you need a small tub to wash them in. Will you need a place to drip dry clothes? What about to iron them? Perhaps your washer and dryer will need to be stacked or raised off the floor for easier accessibility. Maybe you need a floor drain. Do you need an additional fridge or a new location for the deep freezer? Thinking about things such as this will ensure a suitable space.

Include ample storage

The laundry room is a great place to sneak in some extra storage. If you have the room, add some extra cabinetry that can store items that may be cluttering the rest of the house. If you don’t have much space, make the most of what you have, utilizing as much of the area as you can without feeling crowded. Decorative baskets are a stylish way to stash items out of the way. There’s no reason to spend a fortune on your storage solutions. Keep your eyes peeled for mix-and-match pieces from local thrift stores, or reduced price items from builder’s surplus stores.
