When you think of your laundry room, you may just consider it a place to wash, dry and fold clothes. But what if it was more than that? Laundry is already a task that many of us don’t love, but by changing and upgrading the space you’re working in, you may find yourself enjoying the process. Now, we aren’t suggesting you make your laundry room into a lounging space, but simply adding a few pieces and touches that will make your laundry experience that much more enjoyable.
Create Practical Space:
Creating practical and useable space within your laundry room is a significant step to upgrading your space. The most important thing to do is add in is some sort of storage, which will be vital for all those small items that tend to get lost in a rush, such as laundry soap or dryer sheets. Ideally, you’ll also want to consider creating a space that you can fold and sort clothing on, as this will cut time out of your normal routine. These little changes make a huge difference when it comes to functionality.
With all the fun options for paint color, wallpaper or wall designs, why keep your laundry space muted and plain? You might as well make your laundry space fun and bright place to be, especially if you’re constantly doing loads of laundry. If you have a small space or closet area, consider a quick coat of paint to brighten and clean things up or if you have a larger space, consider playing around with an accent wall and different textures to give the laundry room a custom touch.
Lighting is an important piece for any room around the house, including your laundry space! Having good lighting means you’ll have a bright, fresh space to work in, and you won’t get your dark’s and lights mixed up from bad lighting. Consider adding practical track lighting or pot lights to keep the lighting out of the way but still usable, or if you have space consider a warm pendant light to brighten the whole room.
Finally, when you’re updating your laundry room, throw away the rules and have some fun with decorating. Whether it’s a cute laundry sign, a built-in TV or a beautiful accent wall, make your laundry room a fun place to be! It might just take the boring out of folding and sorting and give you something to look forward to on those dreaded laundry days.
