Modernize Your Laundry Room for Better Functionality

Is your laundry room a space that is lackluster? Always feel like you’re lacking in storage space and have no functional areas to get work done? Let’s fix that with a laundry room that works as hard as you do.

While laundry isn’t the most exciting thing to have on your to-do list, these unique ways to spruce up your space could be just the inspiration you need to make your laundry room a place you actually want to be in!  

Ready to create a luxurious laundry room? Be inspired by these chic custom additions that will almost make you happy the loads seem to never end.

#1. Install Custom Cabinetry  

This is our number one tip and for good reason! We believe your laundry room should be as beautiful as the rest of your home, regardless if it is a small space, a multipurpose room, or even a corner in the garage.  

Custom built-in cabinets with plenty of storage can upgrade an outdated laundry area into a vibrant, modern laundry room.  

Customized storage cabinets can stock household cleaning supplies, detergent, dryer sheets, and more. Plus, racks on the wall can store mops, brooms, and other cleaning tools.  

When modernizing your laundry room space consider:  

● Shelves  

● Organization racks  

● A slide-out ironing board  

● A folding station  

● A cozy nook for pets  

With a little vision, your laundry room can become one of the most versatile and usable spaces in your home. Contact our designers today for a laundry room consultation!  

#2. Add Wallpaper or Paint

Many laundry rooms are sterile, but it doesn’t have to be this way! Color is très chic!

From color on the cabinets to painting the 5th wall or adding a fun patterned wallpaper or using a bold paint color throughout for a stylish monochromatic design, your laundry room can be a functional space and a stunning one!

#3. Create a Folding Station

Instead of lugging your laundry somewhere else to fold in the house, why not create a perfect pace to fold your laundry on top of your washer and dryer?  

If you have a front-loading washer and dryer, you can utilize the wasted space on top by adding a folding station; complete with a rich butcher block or granite countertop. This allows you to fold your clothes straight out of the dryer. Goodbye wrinkles!  

#4. Upgrade Your Flooring  

Many older homes in Tampa Bay have laundry rooms have tile or linoleum floors, and there is nothing wrong with that! But if you to really amp up the your design, consider including a fun patterned tile to brighten the space and add visual interest.  

Remember to add a cushy rug, as you’ll be doing a lot of standing!  

#5. Decorate Your Space

When it comes to style, the laundry room is often one of the most neglected spaces in the home. If you don’t find your laundry room inspiring, you’re less likely to want to do your laundry as often.  

If your laundry room becomes a space that you look forward to being in, you might dread laundry day a little less!  

It doesn’t have to be complicated. To add joy to your laundry room add open shelves to showcase some greenery and your favorite art pieces on the wall. See? Simple.  

#6. Set Up a Sorting System  

It can be a daunting task to separate and wash everything when laundry day comes. But placing your clothing in custom built-cubbies marked whites, darks, delicates, etc. can make each load seem more manageable, and makes your laundry area more functional too!    

If you don’t have space for custom-built cubbies or pull-out hampers, opt for matching bins and store them on a shelf or under a bench to allow for good airflow.  

#7. Add a Drying Rod or Rack

You can upgrade your custom laundry room while you’re at it with a hanging rod for delicate pieces that need to be air-dried or hung to prevent wrinkles. Trust us, your wardrobe will thank you.  

A rod or a rack could fold out from the side of your custom cabinetry to make last-minute ironing a thing of the past!
