How to Design Your Laundry

The laundry may be one of the most functional areas of the house. With this being said, there is absolutely no reason that you cannot invest some time and a little money in giving this room a great design.

Many think that there isn’t much to do with such a space but there are many choices you can make to really elevate the style and the purpose of the laundry. From laundry sinks and taps to the colors on the wall, let’s take a look at what you can do to give your laundry room the once over.

Why You Should Care 

It is understandable why so many people fail to pay much attention to the laundry. After all, there are many rooms in the house which require your attention first, where you’ll be spending much more of your time. With this being said, laundry cleaning must be done and this is the room where all of that action will take place. For this reason it is worth giving your time and attention the laundry, and making your life there easier.

Laundry Storage Ideas

Storage is going to play a key part of both the style and the functionality of the laundry, so this is a great place to start. Nothing looks more unattractive than boxes and bottles of cleaning supplies, which is why large jars make for the ideal storage solution here. Additionally you can include wicker box drawers for storage of towels and cloths. These options make the laundry more stylish and help you when it comes to using the room.

Function of The Laundry 

Function is going to play a key role here and that is why you should first assess the size that you have to play with. This will help you to decide when buying laundry sinks, as to whether to go wall mounted or with something a little larger.

Ultimately this is about understanding what exactly you will do in the laundry. Will you be washing dirty boots and pets after a walk? Will you only use it for washing clothes? Will you be looking to dry clothes as well? Once you know how you’ll be using the space, it’ll be far easier to select cupboard options, laundry taps, appliances and the layout of the space.

Laundry Design Tips

 Once you have designed the space based on function, it is time to look into some design features for your laundry. Some like to continue the kitchen color scheme and design through to the laundry. This helps to bring the laundry room back in connection with the property, rather than it being an annex to the home. Even if you decide to keep things basic, there are extra touches to make in the laundry which add style. For example choosing laundry mixers can help bring a touch of style to the laundry and the sink area. Try to look for these details when it comes to the walls and the sink area to really create a theme to the room, and show that you have given the style some thought.

This is a room which can look every bit as stylish as it is functional.
