Is the laundry room in your home quite small? Washing your clothing and folding them can be a bit of a bother, even if your laundry room is big. Therefore, if the square footage in your laundry room is limited, then you need to be a little creative. You can bypass the hurdles that come with limited space in the laundry room with the following smart solutions.
Have Customized Cabinets Installed to Optimize Storage
Cabinets happen to be a very smart solution when it comes to small-sized laundry rooms. If the laundry room’s cabinetry is designed to fit perfectly inside your space, you’ll have the things you need at your disposal. Anything you don’t need can be disposed of. If you want to add several cabinets over appliances, or install a complete wall and sink, personalizing your storage space will make sure that each inch is optimized. It is okay if interior design is not your forte – our designer team can put together a suitable layout to accommodate the laundry room in your house.
We can send you design renderings that are photorealistic. This will give you a visual of what the style of your cabinetry will look like inside your home. The professional services that we offer are totally free. The personal designer helping you will walk you through each stage of the project.
Optimize Vertical Spaces by Having Your Washer/Dryer Stacked Up
When appliances are placed beside each other horizontally, valuable floor space is taken up. What you should be doing is opting for a front loading washer/dryer that is stackable. You’ll find all sorts of stackable styles to pick from that were manufactured by quality appliance makers. In fact, you can even buy a stackable washer/dryer as a pair. When trying to determine how a brand-new washer/dryer should be installed, a single stacking kit might be necessary to accommodate both machines.
A number of manufacturers provide this helpful laundry accessory, which lets you stack several models together. Each manufacturer charges something different for their stacking kit, but you can expect to pay anywhere between $30 and $80, on average.
It’s possible that you have a washer/dryer that is stackable already without knowing it! Find out from your manufacturer if stacking kits are available that accommodate your specific model.
Give the Room Some Personality
When you don’t have very much space, expressing a style of your own can prove to be difficult. This is where creativity comes to the rescue. You’ll be able to incorporate some character, decor, or color by implementing at least one of these solutions, all of which can help you give your small laundry room some personality:
- If exposed wall space is insufficient, you can paint the ceiling a certain color to give it some pop. Alternatively, you can install a vibrant backsplash directly between the wall cabinets and appliances.
- If the laundry room happens to be situated along the outer walls of a home, having a window installed can brighten the room up. Some natural light is capable of modifying a room’s look. The installation costs for windows will vary per home, so it would be prudent to get a quote from a professional contractor prior to entertaining this idea.
- Replace any basic lighting fixture in the home for either a chandelier or a decorative wall sconce. This simple change can give the laundry room some style.
- Keep staples like clothing pins, detergent, and fabric softener on open shelves, transparent glass containers, or countertops. This will change the laundry room’s functionality and aesthetics.
