Easy and Affordable Ways to Update Your Laundry Room

Laundry can be a daunting task. Update your space with these tips to make a fun inviting space where you can enjoy one of life’s never ending chores.

If your laundry room is tired and messy use these great ideas to revamp your space without overspending. No one loves doing laundry but you might just like it a little more.

Work Surface Times Two

Utilize every inch possible to create a space to fold and layout piles of clothes. If you have a front-loading washer and dryer create a surface on top of them. Laminate counters are ideal in a laundry room because of the style options and the cost savings from other alternatives.

Shelving & Storage

Often a laundry room serves as a multi-purpose room and thus necessitates additional storage for sports gear cleaning supplies or pet food. Building out a simple drywall closet is ideal for such purposes and costs a fraction of what installing cabinetry would. Open shelving can also be installed above your work surfaces for additional storage.

Bonus tip: Get organized by using lower shelving units to store your laundry baskets instead of tripping on them while they take space on the floor (or worse--on your coveted folding surface). On upper shelves keep easy access for your detergent bleach and other cleaning supplies.


Hanging Space/Drying Rack

A simple closet rod is the easiest way to introduce a space for hanging clothes on hangers to dry. Hooks plant hangers and towel bars are just a few of the items that can be used to creatively make space to hang items to dry. 

Color Story

A laundry room can be a great space to add personal flair. While colorful paint is easily the cheapest method there are plenty of other ways to make it your own.

1.Painted cabinets: Color me purple or red or blue! Pick a color that you enjoy.

2.A back splash: Tile can be expensive and difficult to install (not to mention a great place for lint and dust mites to gather). Pick a fun laminate to use as the back splash. Easy to clean easy to love.

3.Accent shelves: Create accent shelves. Add a bit of clean and modern edge with a flashy laminate color or bold pattern.
These easy remodel tips will not only aid in organizing your piles of clothes it will help you relish a space you shouldn’t avoid."
