Even though most of us spend a good deal of time doing laundry, our laundry rooms don’t usually reflect it. These spaces tend to be utilitarian, cluttered, and frustratingly chaotic. They’re treated as an afterthought – in spite of the essential purpose they serve.
Make laundry less of a chore by following these 6 tips to make your laundry room look and function so much better.1. Folding Fixtures
Some of the simplest and most effective steps you can take towards efficiency involve using your walls to their fullest potential. For example, consider using wall-mounted and folding versions for your ironing board and drying rack.
By taking these cumbersome accessories off the floor, you’ll increase accessibility and efficiency. Best of all, when not in use, you can store them away in less than a second.2. Retractable Clothesline
For even more clothes-drying space that disappears when not in use, try a retractable wall-mounted clothesline.
These units are easy to install, with a small housing for the line on one wall and a socket to hook the line into on the opposite wall. They work well with any aesthetic too, since they are nearly unnoticeable when retracted.3. Brighten Up the Walls
When you’re using your walls to their fullest potential, you may not have much space left for decoration. To still give your laundry room a sense of design and personality, use wallpaper or paint.
Since a laundry room tends to be personal and private, it’s a nice opportunity to indulge in whimsy. Experiment with fun patterns and vivid colors that you might not consider for your entertaining spaces.4. Disguise your Supplies
A way to boost design and increase function all at once is to use unique, dedicated containers to store your supplies. Dryer sheets, detergent pods, and more can be removed from their factory packaging and transferred to jars, bins, or boxes that better suit your aesthetic.5. Roll Away Bins
If you’re redesigning your cabinets, then sliding storage for laundry bins is something worth considering. Rail-mounted sliding drawers will keep your dirty clothes out of sight until washing day arrives.
Alternatively, if you have a convenient nook available, look for rolling baskets or hampers that compliment your aesthetic. The casters will make moving clothes around a lot more efficient.6. Easy-Open and Space-Saving Sliding Doors
Turning a door handle when your hands are full of folded shirts is a precarious and frustrating prospect. That’s not to mention the precious space a swinging door can take up when open.
Both of these challenges are easily addressed with beautiful BarnCraft sliding barn doors. They slide effortlessly on their rail mounts and take up zero space when opened. Best of all, they come in dozens of styles and finishes. Regardless of your laundry room decor style, there’s the perfect sliding barn door for it.Get in Touch to Get Started
