Laundry Room Ideas to Freshen Your Space

Cute and Organized Laundry Room in Orem Rental HomeThe laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. If it follows that yours isn’t a functional and beautiful space yet, there are easy ways to change that. It is really easy and manageable to upgrade both the functionality and style of your laundry room with a little time and a few simple design ideas.

All you need to refresh your Orem rental property is a few thoughtful touches. For example, take into account designing your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic. A modern updated paint job will go a long way to freshening up the area, in addition to a good cleaning. But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can transform your laundry room into a cheerful spot. With just having cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme, you can quickly renovate your laundry room and bring about a fresh new feel.

For numerous homes, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. But it is possible to achieve both. Adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer is an appropriate method to give yourself the storage you wish while allowing you to update the space with a modern design. In case you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can obtain inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. Or, you may try to get inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving and installing it beautifully on the wall. Through a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and attractiveness to your laundry room.

Beyond cabinets and shelves, there are several other innovative techniques to keep your laundry room neat and organized as well as provide it a defining, personal touch. You perhaps could install a large pegboard on one wall and hang baskets, laundry tools, and other items in a creative and organized way. Other ideas that work include 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 both arranged and organized as well as kept well-hidden.

In the instance that space is limited, you could also add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. Washer pedestals are simply sturdy boxes designed to support your washer and dryer. A a nice pedestal can be made in a few hours with a few boards and stock molding.

Just in case your laundry room is a bit more of a laundry closet, you can still freshen the space with a little bit of labor. A beautiful shelf, some matching baskets, and a decorative touch or two could transform the most minimal and bland laundry area into a warm, pleasing section of the house. If your budget permits, a beautiful set of sliding doors can turn an ordinary laundry closet into one of your preferred spots of the house.

Just with some strategic planning and a bit of hard work, it is quite possible to get the laundry room you’ve long desired. When all is said and done, you will see that the efforts you put in have been more than worth it. Indeed, not only can a renovated laundry room help keep you organized, but it can additionally enhance the total enjoyment of your home each time you use it.
