Ideas For The Ultimate Laundry Room

Adding cabinets to a small laundry room provides extra storage.

Laundry rooms are not an afterthought in today’s home.  They are multi-functional rooms used to keep households running smoothly, efficiently, and in an organized manner.  Here are some tips from your favorite, Palm Beach County , home improvement contractor.

How Laundry Rooms Are Used

Many tasks are performed in today’s laundry room:  clothing sorting, cleaning, drying, folding and ironing are the main ones.  However, if your laundry room is near an entrance, it can also be used to eliminate clutter by providing a locker (or lockers) for shoes, jackets, and bags and a bench to sit on.  It’s also handy for it to have a closet for mops, vacuums, and storage of laundry soap and dryer sheets.

Laundry Rooms Best Practices

Three welcomed elements of an ideal laundry room are a sink for washing delicate and soaking in, ample counter space for folding laundry, and a bar to hang clothing on that wrinkle if not hung immediately.  Other nice items to have are pull-out hampers for clothes sorting and in-wall ironing boards.

Don’t Forget Fido!

If you have a dog, some laundry rooms even have a dedicated pet-washing station.  They include hand-held shower heads with low-rise curbs for large dogs and elevated stations for small dogs to save your back.

An ultimate laundry room is only limited to your imagination, the amount of space you have with which to work, and your budget.
