You have your heart set on a dreamy laundry room with beautiful Shaker Cabinets, and all the features you’ve ever imagined. Now it’s time to bring your lofty ideas to life! But where should you start? From where your laundry room should go to selecting the right laundry cabinetry, we’re sharing some simple steps to designing a timeless laundry room with classic Shaker Cabinets.
1. Pick a location.
Laundry rooms of the past were exiled to the basement, but most modern homeowners prefer to have theirs conveniently located on the main floor of the home. If you have a say in where your laundry room will go, here are a few things to keep in mind when choosing the location.
- Extra insulation and suspension can decrease noise and vibrations while machines are running.
- Choose a washer and dryer that are noise conscious for even less disturbance.
- Take into consideration that nearby rooms might experience an increase in humidity.
2. Select the right laundry cabinetry.
Before you get into the layout of the room, it’s a good idea to browse different finishes to find the look you love. You’ll find a variety of Shaker Style cabinets at Willow Lane Cabinetry, so why not take this time to start your search.
3. Design your perfect layout.
Once you have your top cabinet choices locked down, it’s time to talk floor plan and layout. Every homeowner is unique and has specific wants for their laundry room. To ease the confusion of designing your space, Willow Lane Cabinetry offers free design services. Your designer will create a custom layout for you with an itemized list, so you know exactly which pieces of laundry cabinetry to purchase. Have a special request? Whether it’s a wash area for your dog or a place to hang dry delicates, your wish is our command.
4. Don’t forget the essentials.
With so many decisions to be made (and dreams to be fulfilled) it can be easy to lose sight of the room’s function. Before that happens, ask yourself, “Which tasks would I like to complete in this room?” Maybe the answer is ironing, and you could benefit from a fold out ironing board. Maybe you could really use a sink to hand wash your delicates. Whatever it is, don’t forget about the functions your laundry room needs in order to lighten your load.
5. Take your measurements.
Once you have your custom layout in hand, you can properly measure the spaces where appliances and other elements of the room will go. Take accurate measurements before making any large purchases, and ensure that your laundry room can accommodate all of its new features.
6. Get a good flow.
Many laundry rooms have a “wet zone” and “dry zone” so that it is easier to navigate the room and check tasks off your to-do list. In addition to a more functional workspace, having these two areas divided allows you to streamline plumbing lines, and eliminate a lot of hassle in your remodel.
