The laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. If yours isn’t, there are easy ways to change that. It is easy to upgrade both the functionality and style of your laundry room with a little time and a few simple design ideas.
Occasionally, the only thing stopping your Issaquah rental property from looking picture perfect is a few thoughtful touches. Let’s say you opt to design your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic. This is a great way to give an aesthetic to the room. Or, if it’s within your budget, a new paint job will go a long way to freshening up the look of your space! Another option would be a good, thorough cleaning– a simple but effective solution. But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can turn your laundry room into a cheerful spot. If you choose cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme, this can easily give your laundry room a fresh new feel.
For a lot of houses, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. Both are quite achievable. Adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer is one way to add storage, while also updating the space with a new look. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can find inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. Inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving makes for really good DIY cabinets. Grab some if you find them. With a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and beauty to your laundry room.
There are other available options, aside from cabinets and shelves, to give your laundry room a brand new look — you just need to find which one suits your personality. You might try installing a large pegboard on one wall and hang baskets, laundry tools, and other items in a creative and organized way. For example; hanging your ironing board on the back of a door or nearby wall or adding a skinny cart between the washer and dryer to keep detergent and other laundry products in your laundry room spick and span.
If needed, add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. This works best with tight spaces. Washer pedestals are simply sturdy boxes designed to support your washer and dryer. It doesn’t take an engineer to build these boxes. All you need are some boards and stock molding, as well as a few hours of your day.
With just a few simple steps, you can freshen up space in your laundry room, or your laundry closet! A beautiful shelf, some matching baskets, and a decorative touch or two can make all the difference in bringing about that much-needed revitalization to your laundry area. An ordinary laundry closet can turn into a beautiful space with a few simple renovations. If it’s within your budget, a beautiful set of sliding doors can do this for you.
With a bit of preparation and thought, your laundry room can be well on its way to becoming your favorite room in the house! It doesn’t take much, but the rewarding feeling at the end of it all is more than enough to compensate for the effort. Ultimately, a renovated laundry room will do more for you than just help keep you organized — it will bring about a warm feeling of gratification and appreciation for the newly decorated space.
