Consider Additional Storage Space When Doing a Laundry Room Renovation

February 15, 2019

Laundry rooms play an important role in any home. These rooms hide all of the dirty clothes and the process for cleaning them from the rest of the house. As a result, the homeowners can keep their houses tidier each day in case visitors come to call on them. At times, these rooms need renovation for one reason or another. If your laundry room requires refurbishment at present, consider installing additional storage space during the project. We offer some suggestions on how to accomplish this in the following.

Custom Cabinetry along the Walls

One effective way to add extra storage space in your laundry room is to install custom cabinets along the walls. Lower ones also can contain countertops. If your room is large enough, you can have a separate section to sort, spot-treat and fold your laundry away from the washer and dryer. When you have a small one, though, you can add cabinets over the washer and dryer. Of course, you can combine both ideas when space allows.

Shelves on the Walls

Installing shelves on the walls provides storage without engulfing the floor space. In a small space, open shelves are the way to go to gain space for laundry supplies. Also, shelving is less expensive in case you have a tight renovation budget.

Cubby Holes

Instead of shelving, you may prefer cubby holes. These box-like structures can be built to any size. The sides of these structures act as dividers when multiple ones are placed together in one area.

Drawers Under the Washer and Dryer

Often times, homeowners choose to install drawers under their washer and dryer. While some come ready made for this purpose, you can choose to order customised ones according to your unique specifications and preferences.

A Closet for the Ironing Board and Iron

Another great idea for extra storage in the laundry room is the inclusion of a closet for your ironing board and iron. This closet can just be a fold-down unit attached to the wall. When it is open, the ironing board is in position for use, and then, after you finish using it, you simply fold it up and hide it against the wall.

Hang a Rack from the Ceiling

Use your ceiling to secure a rack for hanging clothes on when necessary. The advantage of this is that the rack is always out of the way when it is not in use.
