Laundry Room Ideas to Freshen Your Space

Cute and Organized Laundry Room in Morrisville Rental HomeThe laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. If this is not the case in your home, there are easy ways to change that. It is easy to upgrade both the functionality and style of your laundry room with a little time and a few simple design ideas.

There will be times when you’ll have to put in a few thoughtful touches to your Morrisville rental property to update it. What if you try designing your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic? It’s a great idea to get some creative juices flowing. Some good cleaning, and perhaps a decent paint job will go a long way to freshening up this tired old room. But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can turn your laundry room into a cheerful spot. Cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme are all good ideas towards providing a fresh new feel for your laundry room.

For other property owners, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. Is it even doable to achieve both? Of course! One way of adding more storage to your space while updating its look is by adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can find inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. Another way would be to search for inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving and mount it on your wall. With a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and beauty to your laundry room.

Besides cabinets and shelves, you can opt to try other means of revitalizing your laundry room, like adding a few personal touches to it. You might try installing a large pegboard on one wall and hang baskets, laundry tools, and other items in a creative and organized way. Another way of keeping things in place is by 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 organized.

If your laundry area is limited, you can opt to add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. Washer pedestals are simply sturdy boxes designed to support your washer and dryer. For such a useful household piece, it doesn’t take a whole lot to make them. All you need are some boards and stock molding.

If your laundry room is something like a laundry closet, it’s still possible to freshen the space with just a few ideas. A beautiful shelf, some matching baskets, and a decorative touch or two can spell the difference between a plain-looking area and one that is quite beautiful. A beautiful set of sliding doors can turn an ordinary laundry closet into one that is elegant and classy. If this is something you want and can afford with your budget, this is a great way to redecorate your space!

Think through the details, and then map out all of the things that you’ll need to modify your old laundry room. At the end of all of the renovations and whatnot, you will find that every effort exerted would have been well worth it. Besides, not only does a renovated laundry room help keep you organized but it also brings more productivity inside your own home.
