Doing laundry is a necessary chore. Whether you wait for it to pile up and do it all once a week or whether you do a small load every day, it always seems like a necessary evil. It really doesn’t have to be that way. A custom laundry room can turn a dark, unorganized space into a laundry room as stylish and functional as the rest of your home. When your work space is organized, the chore takes less time and you have more time to do what you really want to do.
Here are some features that create the perfect laundry room:
Use laundry baskets or hampers for sorting clothes.
Store laundry soaps and other cleaning supplies in cabinets or up high on shelves, out of reach of children and pets.
Create a surface space for sorting and folding clothes.
Install a rod for hanging clothes.
Install a retractable clothes line for hanging and drying delicate items.
Install a drop down ironing board that is fastened in a wall cabinet that can disappear when not in use.
Make sure you have good lighting.
Have a small trash can close at hand for disposing of dryer lint and trash from pockets.
Keep a basket or small bowl for lonely socks, loose change and odds & ends.
Custom laundry rooms can make light work of laundry. The perfect storage system will keep you organized and ultimately help cut down on the time you spend doing laundry. Shelves and cabinets will keep all your supplies organized and extra accessories like pull out baskets are perfect for sorting clothes and storing linens.
