The laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. There are easy ways to change that if your room is a disappointment. It is easy to upgrade both the functionality and style of your laundry room with a little time and a few simple design ideas.
At times, your Charlotte rental property will need a few thoughtful touches from you to give it a sense of renewal. Designing your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic, is a great way to do so. A good, thorough cleaning might go a long way to freshening up your space, but so will a brand new paint job! But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can turn your laundry room into a cheerful spot. If you want that fresh new feel for your laundry room, try going for cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme.
For different homes, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. It’s not impossible to achieve both. If you need more storage, try adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer. This not only gives you more utility, but it also updates the look of your space! If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can find inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. If you find any inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving, you can mount that on your wall and use it as a makeshift cabinet. With a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and beauty to your laundry room.
Other than cabinets and shelves, you can try other methods of adding life to your laundry room. All it takes is a bit of effort. You might try installing a large pegboard on one wall and hang baskets, laundry tools, and other items in a creative and organized way. Also, you can try hanging your ironing board on the back of a door or nearby wall or adding a skinny cart between the washer and dryer to keep detergent and other laundry products arranged and accessible.
If the room isn’t big enough, you can add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. Washer pedestals are simply sturdy boxes designed to support your washer and dryer. With just a few boards and stock molding, you can build your own!
Whether it’s a laundry room or a laundry closet, there’s always something you can do to freshen up space! A beautiful shelf, some matching baskets, and a decorative touch or two can refurbish your laundry area, turning it into something more than just an ordinary space for washing clothes. If the laundry closet is an ordinary space in your house, you can do a few things to make it more attractive. If you have a big budget to work with, perhaps a beautiful set of sliding doors will bring a certain appeal to space.
It doesn’t take much to revitalize your laundry room. Give it some thought and time, and it will turn out to be one rewarding investment. After all the effort you put into this, it would have been all worth it in the end. Having a renovated laundry room will keep you organized but most of all, it will give you a new appreciation for what was once a plain and ordinary room.
