Weirdly enough, the laundry room is by far the most ignored rooms in the home as far as renovation is concerned. Whenever we plan to renovate our home, we think of the bedroom, living room, kitchen, bathrooms, etc. But what if we told you laundry rooms too are in need of innovation for a very special reason. Firstly laundry rooms are one of the most frequently used rooms in a home. Even though formerly they may just be used for washing and drying, today’s laundry rooms are also used to store items such as cleaning liquids, extra laundry, vacuum cleaners etc. So it is just as important to organize them as any other room. Here are our five top-notch tips to help you organize your laundry room is a cost-effective way.
If you like doing your laundry first thing in the morning, consider having a bright window in the laundry room. Not only can it make your day better, but also provides the much-needed light. If you like to take it easy and do the laundry the last thing in the evening, consider investing in ample lighting for clear visibility. You may consider hiring a reputed electrician to make sure that your laundry room is well-lit.
Just because it is a laundry room, doesn't mean it has to be boring. Welcome to the world of wallpapers, where you can buy theme based or cute wallpapers for your laundry room. You can also deck up your room with posters to make them look colourful.
It never killed to have an aesthetic appeal to your laundry room. Maybe an aromatic diffuser or even having a compact music system can make laundry a much more enjoyable experience. You can also consider adding a few potted plants.
Ideally, a laundry room should have a beautiful table and a few storage units to store fresh laundry. Instead of making it all bland you can try to have some fun with colours around it. Invest in colourful wardrobes, ottomans or even carpets to make your laundry room more appealing.
