More Than Just a Laundry Room: Upgrades to Maximize Your Space

Most people find doing laundry a drag and they don’t pay any attention to their laundry room. They see it as an extra space that is a necessity for the household, but unimportant as far as rooms go in your humble abode. However, you’re missing out on utilizing your laundry room and maximizing the space for best practice. Here are seven tips to upgrade your laundry room and maximize your space to make doing the laundry more enjoyable.

1. Add a Folding Station
Take a step out of your laundry routine and add a folding station to your laundry room. This will save you time while doing laundry and help minimize wrinkles. Depending on the size of your space, you can get really creative with your folding station. If you’re tight on space create a station that folds into the wall so you save space. Or if you have a front-loading washer and dryer, add a folding station above the machines and hang a fabric skirt to hide the machines for a classic look.

2. Pick the Perfect Paint Color
Treat your laundry room like any other room in your house and decorate it to your personal style. Pick the perfect paint color that will brighten the space to make the task less dreary and more pleasant.

3. Use Hooks for Hanging
Hanging clothes as you take them out of the dryer reduces wrinkles in your clothing. To maximize your space in your laundry room, use hooks to hang your newly dried clothes. Mount hooks to a wall or get creative with this tip and try a cute DIY project where you can hang clothes from!

4. Get Creative with Shelving

Depending on the size of your laundry room, you’ll have to get creative with shelving and find a way to incorporate it into the space. From wall shelving to movable freestanding shelves, there are plenty of options to choose from when adding storage space to your laundry room.

5. Keep the Design Simple
Don’t go overboard designing your laundry room. Keep the design simple, clean, and most importantly, efficient. You might not spend a lot of time in this room, but you’ll want to make sure the design you choose makes the laundry process easier on you while also being pleasing to the eye.
