Let us be honest, besides your kitchen, the laundry room is probably one of the most used rooms in your home. We spend more time in there than we would like, but now, homeowners are embracing the laundry room and making this space multi-functional yet stylish.
Maximize Your Storage Space
Your laundry room could be a great place to add additional storage to your home. If your space allows, our designer Holly Stevens recommends maximizing the number of cabinets you add to this room. If you have a front-loading washer and dryer, you can add upper cabinets above them, plus utilize them as counter space. You could also add cabinetry to the walls beside the washer and dryer. Making use of taller pantry style cabinets is a great way to hide your cleaning supplies such as a broom or vacuum, and smaller base cabinets can hold small items such as shoes and cleaning products.
Make the Space Multi-Functional
More and more, we are hearing homeowners say they would like to make the laundry room more than just a space where their family dumps dirty clothes. Consider a craft room. Add a small desk unit and cabinets to hold all your crafting needs! And, depending on the size of your laundry room, it would also serve as a small office, or in 2020, a classroom 😊
We always try to design spaces that can serve as your family’s command center; maximizing the area forstorage of shoes, backpacks, athletic equipment, and items your family uses on a daily basis.
Details, Details, Details
Just because your laundry room is a more utilitarian space than some of the other rooms in the home, does not mean it cannot be stylish! Take the opportunity to choose a fun, painted cabinet finish. Or add moldings to the cabinets to elevate the appearance and style of the room. You can also select a fun back splash or counter top – something pattern and color – to spice up the space. You can have fun with this room and even take a couple chances you would not consider in other areas of your home!
