The laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. If yours doesn’t have the same effect, don’t worry. 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.
Every so often, it would do you well to add a few thoughtful touches to your Denham Springs rental property. For instance, try designing your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic. Or, if it’s within your budget, a new paint job will go a long way to freshening up the look of your space! Another option would be a good, thorough cleaning– a simple but effective solution. But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can turn your laundry room into a cheerful spot. Using cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme will lead to a fresh new feel for your laundry room.
For other property owners, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. Achieving both, though, is not at all impossible! If you want to update your space while adding more storage, adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer might do the trick. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can find inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. Going down the DIY route allows you to take inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving to mount them on walls with the result of them serving as storage units. With a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and beauty to your laundry room.
Aside from cabinets and shelves, there are plenty of ways you can express your creativity through the look of your laundry room. 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 needed, add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. This works best with tight spaces. 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 — watch how something as simple as these can instantly revive the look of your space. 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!
With a bit of preparation and thought, your laundry room can be well on its way to becoming your favorite room in the house! After all the effort you put into this, it would have been all worth it in the end. Having a renovated laundry room will keep you organized but most of all, it will give you a new appreciation for what was once a plain and ordinary room.
