LAUNDRY MAKEOVER & STORAGE IDEAS
Your laundry is one of the most overlooked rooms when it comes to home renovation and innovative ideas. Let’s face it, you only really want to use it when you must, and even when you do use it, it’s usually only to load a machine, or to unload it. There are however many ways that you can make the room much more usable for other reasons than washing and drying your clothes.
Usually when homes are built, the laundry is a very small space, and everything is spaced to the millimetre to allow machines and not much else to fit, so renovating does not leave many options for space, so you must utilise every bit of space you have in the room to its best ability.
One of the most important elements of your laundry is the usable space, generally because they are so small, so when renovating, if you have a focus on installing cupboards, drawers and other types of hidden storage, you will have a much more usable space for years to come.
Clever Options For Storage And Accessories
There is a huge range of accessories for laundry renovations. Depending on what sort of use you have in store for it, you can install items like fold down, drop down or slide out ironing boards, or hanging hooks. You can customise your wall storage to include drawers with dividers to store detergents and chemicals away from other items, and probably the best storage solution for any laundry to give a modern sleek appearance is to use your cabinetry to hide your washer and dryer when it isn’t in use.
One clever tip on the design of your laundry is to install a bench top above the washing machine and dryer for folding clothes, it can be a permanent shelf, or a fold out fold down/up style of shelf, and even if you have a top loader, hinges are a great solution.
