4 Ideas For a Stylish Laundry Room
Laundry rooms tend to be crammed with stuff, dark, messy, and rarely visited. But this doesn’t need to be the case if we organize, decorate, and tidy it accordingly.
The laundry room isn’t the first thing to pop in our minds when decorating our house. It’s just a room where we put the washing machine and all the dirty laundry. Laundry rooms are largely ignored because we hardly spend any time there. This is why in this article we are going to give you a few stylish ideas to make your laundry room a nicer place.
Ideas to enjoy your laundry room
Maybe doing laundry isn’t your thing. And for this reason, this room has never been refurbished, decorated, or tidied. But once you’ve done this, you may feel happier than before putting your laundry in the washing machine.
Beyond decoration, you can provide this room, keep a note of these stylish ideas to enjoy even more your laundry room.
1. Don’t skimp on storage
The laundry room also tends to be the place where we keep our cleaning products and sometimes it comes in handy to store stuff we don’t use (clothes from the previous season for example).
To avoid it looking a mess at all times, we recommend investing in storage. This means building cupboards with doors or a shelf to put baskets and everything else you want tidying. Marie Kondo would be proud of this!
2. Free the space
The laundry room isn’t simply a washing machine room, it’s a place where you can fold your clothes and iron them, or even where you can keep your dirty laundry. But for this to happen, you need to free some space.
3. Add good lighting
There’s nothing worse than a dark environment, even if we are talking about the laundry room. We recommend you set up some good lighting and, if possible, white walls. This way you will enjoy the short or long time you spend in this room.
4. Turn it into a room with a double purpose
Perhaps the laundry room is too big for its use. To avoid accumulating unnecessary stuff, we advise giving it a second purpose. For example, it can be the pantry you’re lacking in your kitchen, to store tins and boxes. Or also a place where you can keep your gardening tools.
Laundry room decoration ideas
A laundry room can be as useful as you need it to be, but for this, you need the decoration to be pleasant. This will encourage you to do your laundry and other domestic chores. Here are a few design tips which will brighten your day.
1. Good equipment
If you are lucky enough to have a laundry room separate from the rest of the house or the kitchen, make the most out of it! Place the washing machine in the best place, have a tap or two, a dryer, a place to iron, furniture for cleaning products, and shelves for other items. You can even determine an area where you can hang your clothes up in case you don’t have any outdoor space.
2. A colorful washing machine
Don’t hesitate to lighten up to your laundry room by buying appliances with color. Today, many brands sell products with a unique style. You can even give them your personal touch.
3. Functional laundry room
Your laundry room doesn’t need to be huge for it to look good. Having a place for the washing machine, the dryer, and cleaning products is ample. It this case, we recommend placing cupboards or shelving to make the most out of the space.
4. Hidden laundry room
Another idea for the laundry room would be to place it behind a door as if it was a closet. This is great if your washing machine is in the kitchen for example and you want to separate it somehow.
Your laundry room doesn’t need to be boring, dark, or messy. With a few design touches, for example, wall stickers or furniture of different colors, you can turn it into an enjoyable, charming, and bright room. And which makes you happy doing laundry!
