Having a laundry room that is organized, efficient, and beautiful sounds more like a dream than a reality. But what if we told you that there were only five things needed to take this fantasy forward? No, this is not an illusion. These are the steps you need to take to bring your vision from imagination into existence.
- Storage should always take top priority.
When imaging your dream laundry room, did you ever notice that one thing is always missing from the picture? Yes, the laundry. That is because the ultimate laundry room is clutter free. There’s never an overflowing laundry basket or pile waiting to be folded.
Your laundry room cabinetry should have efficient space to store key elements such as multiple baskets for separating clothing and linens, and a hideaway for your drying rack and ironing board. Functionality is fathomable only when storage solutions are made a priority in the design process. Shop the selection from Willow Lane Cabinetry to see for yourself.
- Don’t think of this space as solely a utility room.
One great mistake homeowners make when designing their laundry room is that they fail to see the potential. By solely focusing on the room’s functionality, they miss out on incorporating aesthetics and décor that can elevate this space into much more than a utility room. From chandeliers to luxurious backsplashes, the most beautiful laundry rooms are barely reminiscent of utility rooms at all. Don’t be afraid to incorporate elements or décor that you may have thought were reserved for the kitchen or living room. By coloring outside of the lines, you’ll be able to bring that castle in the air down to earth.
- Utilize your vertical space.
Not every laundry room is lofty or grandiose. In many cases, creativity is required to accommodate all of your wants in a smaller space. Don’t be discouraged. Optimize vertical space by stacking appliances and installing floor to ceiling laundry room cabinetry. By looking up, not just side to side, you will see a whole new world of possibilities.
- Open shelving and wall accessories are small additions that yield big results.
One of the incredible qualities of a dream laundry room is the ability to bring together very basic elements in an artistic way. Think open shelves lined with storage baskets and drying racks that fold up onto the wall. These necessities can become decorations in themselves, by selecting interesting and modern renditions of classic items.
- Give your laundry room dual functionality.
A laundry room can also be a mudroom for storing boots, coats and umbrellas. For some, it is best served as place for bathing and feeding pets.
