Dirty gym clothes strewn on the floor, traces of powder detergent on the counters, and balled up socks in the corner, no this is not a crime scene, but a normal occurrence in your laundry room. Sound familiar? If you said yes, then it may be time to reinvent the whole place. Here are some quick and simple steps on how you can turn this area into a functional yet attractive room that you will not be ashamed of.
Step#1: Clean, Organize, and Contain
The first step always involve getting rid of the mess. Clean the cabinets, throw away the empty canisters, and by all means, sweep the floor. Next, arrange everything by type and function. Dirty clothes should stay on one side, clean ones on the other. Containers like jars and baskets are ideally used in this part of the house so do not forget to purchase them.
Step#2: Get Yourself A Beautiful Hamper
Hampers are often utilized for dirty clothes, but it does not mean that you have to get an ugly one. Bamboo hampers will add a touch of cozy ambiance, while metal or plastic ones create a conventional look. The great thing about hampers is more and more styles and designs are coming out so you will have fun searching for an appropriate one.
Step#3: Learn To Use Collapsible Equipment
For those who want a unique laundry room, using collapsible equipment may be a wise choice. Folding table, ironing board, and drying rack walls fit this idea so use your creativity and do this. Also, it will save you a lot of space, so include this upon revamping your laundry room.
Step#4: Do Not Overlook The Small Things
People focus more on the walls, design, and equipments. Because of that, they forget the little things that will affect the overall ambiance and functionality of the laundry room such as the tiles, ceiling, lighting, and windows. Take note of these things and how it will impact the room you are trying to fix.
The laundry room need not look like a dirty secret that you are trying to keep, nor like a crime scene that has to be avoided. Instead, it should serve its purpose well while giving the appropriate vibe that is reminiscent of the overall theme of your house.
