We’d probably all be surprised at the number of hours we spend in a laundry room. All those hours of sorting, washing, and folding can really add up! Those hours don’t have to be spent in a utility room that feels like a dungeon—especially with these laundry room remodeling tips.
A laundry room counter top can feel like a godsend, especially for folding and sorting clothes. Add a countertop over a washer and dryer for a smooth surface for any task. Countertops can also be added in other areas; a good contractor can even add a countertop that can be retracted when not in use.
Open shelves and cabinets are a great solution for households who need extra storage. Ask a contractor for suggestions of efficient solutions that look great; sometimes a combination of the two is the right use of space. If the laundry room is more compact (such as a laundry closet), look up for storage. Even small areas can have room for extra storage.
A utility sink or small shower can be invaluable when you’re dealing with dirty clothes and pets. Both options don’t have to take up a lot of room and can make a laundry room very functional. A sink or shower can be added as basic or advanced as desired. For a budget-friendly alternative, ask a contractor about a basic insert. For a beautiful addition, consider options for a tiled and functional sink or shower that is a showstopper.
