Laundry Room Ideas of 2021
Are you having trouble styling your laundry room? Or maybe you’re just ready for a laundry room remodel?! Either way, we get the need for having a beautiful laundry room with lots of storage space and easy access to the washer/dryer. Therefore, check out our best laundry room ideas of 2021 that will add to your space!
What should every laundry room have?
Well, this probably goes without saying – but a washing machine and dryer are crucial. With that, you should have plenty of detergent, bleach, stain remover, dryer sheets – whatever other laundry products you use.
Additionally, I like to have an ironing board and an iron in my laundry room. Trust me, you never know when you’ll have a last minute job interview or have to go to your kid’s piano recital – and that iron will sure come in handy!
Moreover, I use my laundry room for extra storage space. Therefore, when I designed my laundry room, I made sure that I would have ample room for both laundry space and some miscellaneous things. Therefore, when I was shopping for decor – I made sure that I bought products that would fit into my workspace and also were great storage solutions. And they looked stylish, of course!
How do you make a small laundry room look bigger?
Firstly, think about your paint color choices. When you pick a darker color, chances are it’s going to shrink the visual space of the room. Therefore, use a lighter color on the walls to make the laundry room appear larger. I mean, who doesn’t love a white laundry room!?
Secondly, add open shelves to empty corners. This hack completely changed the layout of my space. Plus, it gave me so many extra storage ideas that I didn’t even know were possible!
Thirdly, use stackable washer and dryer if you need to. Honestly, I think stackables can look really farmhouse/rustic…or even more modern if you wanted it to. Plus, it’s just an overall great way to maximize space and open up your floor space.
Lastly, put supplies (think bleach, detergent, all those cleaning supplies) in baskets and storage containers! Before I did my laundry room makeover, my liquids would sit on top of the front load washer and literally not move for weeks. When I started organizing my laundry supplies (and other random stuff), my laundry area became a whole new world.
What are some features that are necessary for my laundry room?
So, it’s essential that your mudroom is both functional and user-friendly. Therefore, what are some features that you should incorporate into your space?
Firstly, like we addressed above – shelving space! This will seriously make ALL the difference. Even if you don’t think you need to efficiently design your cabinetry now – trust me – you DO!
Secondly, if you’re contemplating small laundry room ideas (or any laundry room for that matter), it’s really helpful to have a drying rack that can fold up and down.
Thirdly, a sink. Get ahead of the game, because we all know you anticipate at least washing some dirty clothes by hand. Therefore, put a sink in your room. Seriously – it will help you so much. A farmhouse sink in the laundry room is my go to…
Fourthly, make sure you have good lighting installed if your room doesn’t have a lot of natural light. I think we’ve all been there before – spending hours trying to get a stain out of a shirt, thinking you did and walking out of the house only to recognize the darn thing is still there! Hence, this is where bright lights are CRUCIAL!
Lastly, ample counter space is a must. Come laundry day you know you’re going to have linens and clothes all over the place. And we all know it takes forever to fold and then separate the kids’ (and husband’s!) laundry. So, this is where having enough counter space really comes in handy.
