Your laundry is often the place most neglected in your home but serves a very important purpose. Good lighting, good use of space and well organised are some of the features you should aim for in a laundry renovation.
Here are some Clever ideas for the Laundry that you could adapt in your homes.
Hang up your clothes to dry
Increase the convenience factor of your laundry room with Shirt hangers in a laundry cupboard or under a shelf. You can hang items as they come out of the dryer to minimize wrinkling and ironing.
Create a laundry station
Turn a multi-storage shelf into a compact laundry center. Simply rearrange the shelves to accommodate laundry baskets, and install a clothes rod in one section for hanging clothes as you iron them.
Make a folding station
Add a slide-out shelf to use as a clothes folding bench. Remember to splash the entire piece of furniture and shelves with high-gloss paint for a designer finish.
Instant laundry centre
A wall-hung cabinet with a laundry-cart-on-wheels can create a convenient laundry centre in any room. An ironing holder attached to the side of the cabinet keeps the iron within reach, and a space-saving clothes hanger or a top mounted shirt hanger under the cabinet can hold ironed items.
Good lighting brightens a laundry room and helps you spot those frustrating clothing stains. Under-cabinet LED lights can illuminate the countertop so you can match socks or check clothing for spots and stains.
Unusual laundry locations
Create a laundry under the stairs and add built-in shelving for extra storage
Hanged laundry bags make it simple to sort laundry on a daily basis. This setup takes up no floor space which is ideal in small apartments or homes.
