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.
From time to time, a few thoughtful touches are all it takes to reinvigorate your Muskegon rental property. Designing your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic, is a great way to do so. 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. If you want that fresh new feel for your laundry room, try going for cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme.
For other property owners, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. Both are quite achievable. Update the look of your space by adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer. It serves to provide more storage, as well. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can find inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. Installing inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving on your walls can be a DIY replacement for cabinets or other 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.
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. For instance; 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 neatly kept.
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. With just a few boards and stock molding, you can build your own!
If your laundry room is more like a laundry closet, freshening up that space is still very much possible in several ways. 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. Should your budget allow, you may want to get a beautiful set of sliding doors. These can turn any ordinary laundry closet into one of your favorite parts of the house.
It doesn’t take much to revitalize your laundry room. Give it some thought and time, and it will turn out to be one rewarding investment. It doesn’t take much, but the rewarding feeling at the end of it all is more than enough to compensate for the effort. 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.
