Even if you hate doing the laundry you deserve a luxurious laundry room! Gone are the days that the laundry room was an overlooked space or relegated to a small closet. Today's laundry rooms feature beautiful design elements and creative interpretations of a functional space. When designing your custom laundry room you'll want to pay particular attention to:
- Functional areas- Well designed laundry rooms should include space for prep, washing and drying, ironing, and storage. Make sure that the layout allows you to complete all of these tasks without feeling cramped.
- Cabinet dimensions- It's important to ensure that your laundry room cabinets are the proper dimensions to fit all of your laundry essentials. Determine cabinet size by the height of your washer and dryer, the amount of storage you require, and any additional purposes the room may serve.
- Extra space- Laundry rooms with extra space may serve as a craft room, mud room, or sewing room. If you are designing a space that will pull double duty make sure you choose a layout that doesn't impact the functional use of the laundry room.
