When you are thinking of custom home renovations the laundry room might not be the first room that comes to mind. However laundry room makeovers are a design trend that is not going away and many homeowners are updating their laundry rooms along with other home renovation projects.
3 Reasons to Upgrade Your Laundry Room
1. Main Floor Laundry
If you have main floor laundry then your laundry room will be front and centre in your home. Not only will your family see it every day, but so will your guests. A main floor laundry room needs to flow with the current design and feel of your home.
2. Family = Laundry
Let’s face it. If you have a family you have laundry. If you have kids you have lots of laundry. This means you’ll be spending a lot of time in your laundry room (probably more time than you would like).
3. Multifunctional Room
Most laundry rooms these days are multifunctional. They are used for more purposes than just the laundry. Whether your laundry room doubles as a sewing room, storage area or wine cellar it’s important that it is organized in a way that meets all the specific needs of your family.
What’s In a Good Laundry Room?
It’s important that your laundry room is:
- Properly ventilated – keep your home safe and reduce the risk of fire
- Functional – optimize for efficiency
- Spacious – ideally you’ll have room to comfortably sort, wash and fold laundry
- Organized – an organized laundry room makes doing laundry much easier
- Clean - you need a clean laundry room for your clean laundry
