What Does Your Laundry Area Look Like? Here are 5 Ways to Organize Your Laundry Room.
Laundry rooms are usually ignored and disorganized but it really doesn’t have to be that way. Here are some ideas to have a neat and inviting laundry room where laundry duty won't feel like a chore.
We spend a lot of time doing laundry so why not make it a nice comfortable space, whether its a room in your basement or in a small closet.
Tip 1: Plan the Layout of the Space
Measure the space and create a sketch of where the necessary items will be placed.
Choose energy efficient appliances that will fit the space.
Decide if you need a dryer or just the washing machine.
Open shelves are a good idea for easy access to items that are used regularly.
Decide on the color scheme
The placement of the hanging rod is important.
A slim closet will be very useful for the broom, a modern ironing board etc.
Closed cupboards are necessary to hide items like extra boxes of detergent etc.
Paint the cupboards
Get new pulls (door handles) for the cupboards
There should be a flat surface/folding table above the machine or against the wall.
Tip 2: Appliances
