While laundry rooms come in all shapes and sizes there are some common design elements that every laundry room needs. Whether you need a complete laundry room remodel or just a few updates it will be well worth your money and sanity.

Essential Laundry Room Design Elements

  • Ventilation- Every laundry room needs a fan or vent that goes to the outside. If possible include window that can be opened. This will help eliminate mold that can be caused by built up moisture. It will also help with fumes from products such as bleach.
  • Sink – It makes it so much easier if you have a sink to soak those stubborn stains. It is also a great place to wash off muddy shoes and other items so they don’t track dirt into the house.
  • Storage – You might include some open shelving for those laundry baskets so you have a place to put the clean laundry. Also many of the kitchen storage features will work well to store cleaning products and other laundry supplies.
  • Folding area or table – A counter or slide out table so laundry can be folded right out of the dryer will save on having to rewash clothes that fall on the floor. No more laundry piles in the living room and your clothes will be a lot less wrinkled so you will have less ironing to do.
  • Drying Racks - It doesn’t need to be a large rack. There are a variety of racks that attach to the wall and can be pulled out to dry clothing and can discretely put away when they are not in use.
  • Ironing Station – If your laundry room has the space we encourage a built in ironing station. Your clothes can be hung up and ready to wear right from the closet. No more frantic running around in the morning trying to get ready for work.
