How to Revamp Your Laundry Room

How to Revamp Your Laundry Room

Renovating your laundry room requires careful planning. This is particularly true if you are undergoing other home renovations. This can allow you to book your contractor for all household remodels. But even if you aren’t planning other renovations, you can complete a laundry room renovation in a cost-effective manner. Our team at iRemodel Home Renovations has come up with some tips you are going to want to know.  

The laundry room seems to be the last room on people’s minds to renovate, which can seem a bit strange considering how much time is actually spend in there. The top-of-mind renos typically include bedrooms, kitchen, and bathrooms, leaving utility rooms such as the laundry room abandoned. They can be made into more than just a place to wash, dry, and fold clothes. They can have other uses, like storage for cleaning supplies, pantry, art room, etc.  

Renovation Revamp Ideas 

Depending on how many people are in your house can determine how often you are spending doing laundry. This could be anywhere from once a day to once a week. Some families schedule each person’s laundry to a specific day in order to keep things organized. But if you are not a family with a strict schedule, this can leave your laundry room in constant disarray, particularly if you have a small room to begin with. In order to avoid this situation, there are some key elements you should consider when renovating your laundry room.  


The location of your laundry room is important. If it is in a more visible spot in your house, you will want it to be more aesthetically appealing. Adding wallpaper is an inexpensive and easy way to add some character. But this can be used as an accent wall and not something you need to cover all walls with. The remaining walls can have a semi-gloss paint that is moisture resistant.  


There are two main choices you have to make when selecting your washing appliances; top-loading or front-loading. Each of these options has a wide range of prices that you will need to decide on. If you are looking to save space, consider an all-in-one washer/dryer. The size is also important. If you have a growing family, considering larger appliances that can hold more clothes at a time is something to think about. Your contractor can also suggest options that are reasonably priced.  


What time of day do you typically get the laundry done? If you do your laundry during the day, you are going to want to make sure you have enough natural light coming through the room. This means at least one small window is essential. If you typically do your laundry at night, this means that you are going to want enough lights throughout the room. For this particular task, you will want to hire a reputable electrician to install task lighting for things like the sink. They should also be able to suggest other ideas to help add more light to the room.  


Are you using your laundry room to iron your clothes? In order to decrease wrinkles, ironing your clothes before you put them away is going to be essential. A counter station is the best thing to have when performing this task. There are numerous countertops that are best suited for laundry rooms, made with the appropriate materials. Make a careful decision before moving ahead with one.  


To make doing the laundry less boring, mundane, and a chore, think about adding in a music system to help pass the time and make things more fun and exciting. If you have a small laundry room, there are small and compact sound systems that can be installed that won’t take up valuable room. For larger rooms, you can have a designated work space, along with some plants to brighten the room. Another thing to consider is adding storage space. Make your laundry room more versatile by combining a storage area, laundry room, and anything else you want.
