The laundry room is a highly functional space.
It’s where you wash, dry, fold, sort and iron clothes, among other things.
Designing a space that helps you perform these tasks as efficiently as possible is essential for those trying to streamline laundry tasks and make them more manageable.
That’s why we’ve put together a list of must-haves for the laundry room. These five additions are beneficial in any laundry room, large or small.
1. Hanging rod
A hanging rod allows you to dry individual clothes efficiently right in your laundry room. You can easily hang up clothes right from the washing machine, or hang freshly laundered shirts while folding the rest of the load.
2. Pullout drying rack
Like a hanging rod, a drying rack makes it easy for you to air-dry clothes without having to leave the room. No more having to drape wet sweaters and pants over furniture to dry. Lay out delicate clothing or sweaters for wrinkle-free drying.
3. Hidden laundry bins
Rather than keeping laundry bins in your room, install hampers in the laundry room. Tuck-away hampers allow you to sort dirty clothes by colour right away so that you don’t have to later. By having bins behind closed doors, you can prevent odours from stinking up your space.
4. Pullout ironing board
No more bending, wrestling and trying to maneuver around an oversized ironing board. The pullout feature means you can tuck away the ironing board when not in use and it’s handy to have right in the laundry room.
5. Clear containers
Clear jars and containers are great for storing cleaning supplies like laundry detergent. Clear containers tell you when you’re running low on product and make it easy for you to find what you’re looking for and add a designer touch to your laundry room.
