I think we can all agree that no one really enjoys doing laundry. But I can say that I heard fewer complaints in my family when we remodeled our laundry room.

Depending on the size of your family, you could be spending a LOT of time in your laundry room. That being said, you should make it an enjoyable space (even if you don't enjoy the activities you have to do while being in there.)

The way we can do this is increase functionality and make the room appealing to the eye.

Here are some ideas every homeowner can take advantage of in their laundry room:

  • A Fresh Coat of Paint: This can make a huge difference especially if you're laundry room is a cramped area. Light colors can have a relaxing effect which is great for laundry!

  • Open Windows: Make sure you have quality windows and ditch the blinds and drapery. Any natural light that you can bring into this room will be needed when you are trying to get stains out of your clothes.

  • Surface Area: It is so important to have some type of surface for folding and decor to liven up the room.

  • Cabinetry: Don’t forget about the importance of cabinets in this area! People often forget they need somewhere to store dirty laundry, detergent, and other laundry supplies.

  • Doors or an Equivalent: Incorporate some type of door or curtain so you can hide/forget about the loads of laundry when you have guests or are too busy to wash.

If you follow these updates, I promise that you will want to spend more time in your laundry room and hopefully build up less dirty laundry.
