It’s obvious that we all have to do laundry, although not daily. You might ignore your laundry room when decorating the other rooms of your house. However, a nicely-organized and designed laundry room can save you time. Nowadays, a separate laundry room is a core feature for home buyers, so having a nice design should be a consideration.
There are many ways to get rid of the fatigues of laundry. Put aside all your worries. First, think how you actually do laundry. How much time do you spend in your laundry room? We’ll let you know how you can make this time more efficient. It’ll become easier to get the job done in less time. We’ll also look at how you can stick to your budget.
A Flat Surface Laundry Room
A flat surface or a counter top is the basic requirement of every laundry room. This is where you fold your clothes. You can install a counter beside your washer and dryer. In the case of a small area, a counter can be built right above your washer and dryer.
You can also place detergents, fabric softener, and other items there as well. Wall shelves do a great job of this. Don’t worry if there’s no counter there. Instead, place an old table that fits your laundry room space. And you are all set!
A Place for Hanging Clothes
You definitely need an area for hanging clothes. There are several different and stylish drying racks available today, all of which can be brought to your laundry room. Otherwise, you can hang clothes the old-fashioned way via a string.
Storage Containers for Your Laundry Room
Not all types of fabrics can be washed together. Keep your different loads of laundry in separate baskets or storage bins. Just think how much it’ll make your life easier and more comfortable. Obviously, some clothes need special care, so consider having a storage bin for each of your clothing categories.
Highly Efficient Appliances
Don’t forget to check out the possible appliances you can fit in your laundry room. If your laundry room is newly constructed, choose highly efficient appliances that consume less energy. Advanced appliances can save 10- 50% energy as compared to the traditional washers and dryers.
Choose Good Quality Detergents
You also need to be cautious when choosing detergents and bleaches. A well-organized laundry room can become devalued if a suitable detergent is misplaced and unused. In the end, a laundry room’s main function is to clean clothes.
