The laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. There are easy ways to change that if your room is a disappointment. It is easy to upgrade both the functionality and style of your laundry room with a little time and a few simple design ideas.
Occasionally, the only thing stopping your Westchester rental property from looking picture perfect is a few thoughtful touches. Let’s say you opt to design your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic. This is a great way to give an aesthetic to the room. A good, thorough cleaning might go a long way to freshening up your space, but so will a brand new paint job! But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can turn your laundry room into a cheerful spot. Cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme are all good ideas towards providing a fresh new feel for your laundry room.
For other homeowners, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. Achieving both, though, is not at all impossible! Adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer is one way to add storage, while also updating the space with a new look. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can find inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. Inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving makes for really good DIY cabinets. Grab some if you find them. With a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and beauty to your laundry room.
Aside from cabinets and shelves, there are plenty of ways you can express your creativity through the look of your laundry room. You might try installing a large pegboard on one wall and hang baskets, laundry tools, and other items in a creative and organized way. Also, you can try hanging your ironing board on the back of a door or nearby wall or adding a skinny cart between the washer and dryer to keep detergent and other laundry products arranged and accessible.
If you’re working with a smaller area, try to add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. Washer pedestals are simply sturdy boxes designed to support your washer and dryer. Luckily, you won’t need much to build your own — just a few boards and stock molding.
With just a few simple steps, you can freshen up space in your laundry room, or your laundry closet! A beautiful shelf, some matching baskets, and a decorative touch or two can refurbish your laundry area, turning it into something more than just an ordinary space for washing clothes. An ordinary laundry closet can turn into a beautiful space with a few simple renovations. If it’s within your budget, a beautiful set of sliding doors can do this for you.
Plot out your next move as to what can be done to transform your ordinary laundry room into your favorite room of the house. At the end of all of the renovations and whatnot, you will find that every effort exerted would have been well worth it. Ultimately, a renovated laundry room will do more for you than just help keep you organized — it will bring about a warm feeling of gratification and appreciation for the newly decorated space.
