In the past, the living room, bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen were the main places that people focused on when decorating their home. Recently, however, more and more people have begun to expand their home décor ideas to unlikely spaces like the laundry room. Pinterest is filled with ideas for creating luxurious laundry rooms, with everything from high-end machines to simple, affordable organization ideas that can be easily implemented.
When renovating a laundry room, try to go with materials that are both durable and functional. Things like stainless steel and tile will hold up to high-traffic and more than normal wear and tear. They will also be much easier to clean and maintain if you have to wipe up water and other liquids that might spill while washing and drying clothes. Along with having great functionality, materials like this also have a chic, modern look that can be customized with colors and patterns if you so choose.
If your laundry room is in a small space, consider using a lighter color palette. It can open the room up, making it feel like you have more space – plus, it gives a crisp, clean feel to the area. If you want to add in some bold hues, go with pops of color to keep it from becoming too overwhelming. Consider bright artwork, colorful hangers, or a fun accent wall when determining how you want to bring your personality into the room.
When it comes to washing clothes, there are all kinds of things you need to have on hand like special detergents, fabric softeners, and dryer sheets. Having a place to store those things and keep them organized not only makes doing laundry faster and easier, but it can also help you keep track of how much inventory you have so you can purchase the things you need before you realize you are out of it. Consider keeping liquids in glass jars to give a cool, natural look; go with brightly colored mason jars for a modern appeal; or use clear bins with labels to keep everything organized and in its place. You can maximize the space in a smaller laundry room by adding shelving units or raising your washer and dryer up so you can store things underneath.
Doing laundry might feel like a chore, but with a luxurious laundry room it may be a bit more enjoyable!
