Home owners spend a lot of time in their laundry rooms but the space isn’t often a priority when it comes to designing a functional and appealing space. In reality, renovating your laundry room can make a big difference in how you use and enjoy your home! Not only can an upgraded laundry room make it easier for you to do laundry, but in many cases, additional storage or functionality can be incorporated into the space.
If the time has come for your laundry room to receive a much-needed renovation, there are some key factors to consider in order to make sure you get the best layout possible.
Questions To Consider Before A Laundry Room Renovation
Where Should It Be Located?
Just because your current laundry appliances are located in the basement doesn’t mean they have to stay there. If there is space available, many homeowners choose to move their laundry room to either the main floor or into an upstairs space. Having the laundry room out of the basement means it is closer to the dirty clothes and it can often share the same plumbing lines as those used for the kitchen or a bathroom.
If you do move your laundry machines out of the basement, think about the extra space and ventilation that will be needed. In addition, laundry machines can be noisy and that huge pile of laundry that builds up so quickly may now be more visible in a main floor space.
What Will Make It Efficient For Me?
While there are tons of laundry room design ideas available, you really need to think about which layout will work best for you. Some people prefer a large work space for sorting and folding, while others want a large laundry sink for hand washing.
Think about how you do laundry and what features will make the laundry process easier for you.
Where Can Storage Be Added?
Have you ever heard anyone say that they have too much storage? No, we haven’t either! If you are renovating your laundry room, chances are you will have the ability to add storage to the space. Whether that is custom cabinets built above the laundry machines, a space to hang out of season clothes or adding shelves to unused corners, these extra touches will really help make your laundry room a space you love.
Laundry Room Safety
Even though the laundry room is probably one of the smallest spaces in your home, that doesn’t mean you can ignore the need to take precautions when renovating the space. Laundry rooms require electrical and plumbing which means your safest bet is to work with a professional contractor who knows how to complete the needed work properly. Floods and fires caused by dryers are a common reality for laundry spaces that are poorly completed.
