Laundry Room Storage Upgrade
Plenty Of Functionality, Style Touches
Getting the most out of your laundry room upgrade means designing for storage, making sure the appliances fit, and checking that the workflow is right for your style of living.
The 150 sq. foot space shown above features include a deep sink and tall faucet that can accommodate a mop bucket for easy cleanup, and a fold-down ironing board that stores away in a wall mounted cabinet when not in use and that doesn’t gobble up valuable floor space.
The continuous counter allows plenty of room for folding the laundry, while open shelving combined with contemporary cabinets offer plenty of storage. The overall color and style create a relaxing space that makes wash day in a relaxing, efficient space a more pleasant task.
Paint Color Plays An Important Role
One important aspect of this comfortable work room is the use of an extended color palette that blends several different colors in a subtle, harmonious way. When using more than two or three basic colors, it’s difficult to avoid ending up with a conflicting mess of out-of-synch hues and shades.
If you’re unsure, it’s easy enough to test paint schemes ahead of time. It’s much easier to get it right in the planning stage than spending time and effort in the do-over phase.
Let Your Budget Determine Your Options
It’s always best to establish a budget before jumping into the deep end. Once that’s done, the entire job of deciding which options work best for your situation becomes a lot easier.
The under counter wicker baskets, above, are perfect for tossing dirty laundry into, and a small window over the sink adds plenty of light and avoids a closed in tunnel look.
