Your laundry room can be much more than a dark place to throw dirty clothes into the washer and dryer before dashing back out of the room again. When you take the time to plan your laundry room properly, you will find yourself wanting to spend more time in there than necessary.
Here are 6 custom laundry room ideas that will make you rethink your remodeling ideas:
1. Add Slanted Storage Over Your Washer and Dryer
Slanted storage over a washer and dryer is perfect if you do not have a lot of space in your laundry room. This type of storage is perfect for your laundry baskets, whether you use them to hold dirty or clean laundry.
2. Install a Drying Rod
Drying racks are nice for all those clothes that cannot go into the dryer, but they can take up a lot of space in a laundry room. We recommend hanging a drying rod, either over your washer and dryer, or over a countertop, so that you can easily dry your clothes without having them in the way.
3. Hide a Pull-Down Ironing Board
If you plan on installing cabinets inside your laundry room, we recommend leaving an area for an ironing board. You can simply open the cabinet door and pull the ironing board down when you need it and tuck it away when you are finished.
4. Add a Change Jar
You know how you are always finding coins in the bottom of the washing machine? And wondering why it is always coins and never bills? Well, instead of remembering to take it with you when you leave or considering giving it back to the person it belongs to, you should add a change jar to this space. A cute little mason jar would do the trick, but you can use any jar that you have laying around.
5. Add a Pull-Out Shelving Unit Between the Washer and Dryer
This compact shelving unit would be the perfect place to store your laundry detergent, stain remover, fabric softener, and more. You could even stash your change jar here! Since it rolls in, you won’t need to worry about tripping over it or having it in your way at the worst time.
6. Add a Sink
If you have never had a sink in your laundry room, you do not know what you are missing! This will easily become your favorite feature, because you can rinse out items that are stained or place things in to soak before washing them.
You know that you will be spending a lot of time in your laundry room, so you might as well make it a cozy space that you love! Add these six custom ideas and then keep going until you have created the laundry room of your dreams.
