You Ask, We Answer: How Do I Create a Laundry Room?
Storage is key
For some people, open shelving is a more affordable option that works well for them. They use coordinated baskets to help organize shelving and are more than happy to fold linens, towels or clothes and leave them on display. For others, having closed-door cabinets alleviates any sense of clutter; having items tucked out of site is the preferred method of storage. Whatever storage system you decide on, consider leaving room for hanging racks for air-drying delicate items or saving on dryer electricity. No room for hanging racks? No problem. Rolling racks like this one are a simple and smart solution that achieves the same end while keeping things nice and neat, while magnetic hanger holders offer the same idea without taking up valuable floor space.
Utility sinks can be laundry life-savers
Utilize wall space
Consider front load machines
In addition to being space savers, front load washer and dryers can be more energy-efficient than top loaders. That means that in the long run, they may save you money on your utility bills—an attractive benefit for many homeowners. And finally, if you have a tendency to do large loads of laundry, front load machines tend to have more room because of the drum design.
