A few other ideas
Additional Storage in Your Laundry Room
When you remodel your laundry area, the best thing to do is increase functionality to the space by adding smart built-ins such as shelves and cabinetry, which can be used for your laundry supplies, such as laundry baskets or bins, detergent, clothes bags, dryer balls, irons, ironing boards, bag of clothespins and even sewing kits and even an ironing board can also be housed in this area.
Not just a Laundry Room
If you live in a smaller house, then using your laundry area for multi-purpose activities such as laundry/mudroom, can be an excellent space saver. Since the laundry naturally has a sink, it is a perfect spot to wash off there when you enter, bathe your pets.
- It’s a great place to set up a shoe rack for everyday shoes, keep your sporting equipment and some hooks on the wall next to the door for your jackets.
- Utilize the space to incorporate a built-in desk.
- The vital to your design is to brainstorm what your family needs are and be sure to use this space wisely.
The main focus should be your walls when you are decorating. Brightly hued pair or decorative wall treatments or even decals and murals can make your chores a lot more enjoyable. You could also add a playful sign or even a meme to instill some personality. Your laundry space does not have to be boring!
