Laundry Room Essentials

Thursday, September 26th, 2013

What makes the perfect laundry room? A washer and dryer are obvious, but beyond those functional appliances, there are design elements and practical solutions that make the daily necessity of washing clothes less of a chore. We all have laundry to do, but if you take the time to plan out your space and include the extra essentials, the space can be a pleasant place to get the job done.

Storage. Detergent, fabric softener, bleach, stain removers, and those single socks seeking a mate. You’ve got to have a place for them, so a few cabinets or shelves are absolutely key. Supplementing with baskets and bins or clear containers to hold smaller items keeps the space organized.

A Folding Surface.  In my own laundry room, I have a plain white laminate countertop where I do all the folding – just that 2 x 4’ amount of space makes all the difference in the world. It’s not just a few beach towels that hang out there on a daily basis, in our busy home there are many piles of clothing being folded and sorted and sent to their destination.
