Laundry Room Touches Anyone Can Do

Nowhere is the difference between high-end new construction/remodeling and existing homes more clear than in laundry rooms. These once simply utilitarian spaces have become large, decorated rooms that incorporate drying racks, clothing sorters, built-in ironing boards, craft areas, wrapping areas and gleaming machines. For me, I just have to remember that having my own 12-year-old washer and dryer is still a dream come true. No more hoarding quarters or waiting around to make sure no one takes my wet clothes out of the dryer and leaves them in a lump on top of the machine. We’re lucky to have washers and dryers, even if they are stashed in a closet, right? Well, sometimes doing laundry is still a chore, and there are ways to set up the space to be more pleasing and efficient, and to bring a smile to your face.

Before we get started, let’s have a safety check. Clean that lint screen, vacuum all around your machines and have your dryer vent cleaned out. Clean out those corners and remove everything but the machines so you can see the room as a blank canvas. Now enjoy the inspiration below and decide which ideas you want to borrow for your own laundry room.
