Laundry Room Ideas to Freshen Your Space

Cute and Organized Laundry Room in Winter Garden Rental HomeThe laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. If that’s not true of yours, there are easy ways to change that. It is easy to upgrade both the functionality and style of your laundry room with a little time and a few simple design ideas.

At times, your Winter Garden rental property will need a few thoughtful touches from you to give it a sense of renewal. Perhaps a new look would do the trick: designing your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic, could give your laundry area the new look you’ve been wanting. A good, thorough cleaning might go a long way to freshening up your space, but so will a brand new paint job! But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can turn your laundry room into a cheerful spot. Cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme are all good ideas towards providing a fresh new feel for your laundry room.

For a lot of houses, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. Is it even doable to achieve both? Of course! One way of adding more storage to your space while updating its look is by adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can find inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. Another way would be to search for inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving and mount it on your wall. With a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and beauty to your laundry room.

Besides cabinets and shelves, you can opt to try other means of revitalizing your laundry room, like adding a few personal touches to it. You might try installing a large pegboard on one wall and hang baskets, laundry tools, and other items in a creative and organized way. For example; hanging your ironing board on the back of a door or nearby wall or adding a skinny cart between the washer and dryer to keep detergent and other laundry products in your laundry room spick and span.

If your laundry area is limited, you can opt to add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. Washer pedestals are simply sturdy boxes designed to support your washer and dryer. This isn’t something difficult to DIY. All you’ll need are some boards and stock molding.

Whether it’s a laundry room or a laundry closet, there’s always something you can do to freshen up space! A beautiful shelf, some matching baskets, and a decorative touch or two can refurbish your laundry area, turning it into something more than just an ordinary space for washing clothes. If it’s within your budget, go for a beautiful set of sliding doors. They can turn an ordinary laundry closet into something warm and inviting.

It doesn’t take much to revitalize your laundry room. Give it some thought and time, and it will turn out to be one rewarding investment. It doesn’t take much, but the rewarding feeling at the end of it all is more than enough to compensate for the effort. A renovated laundry room helps keep things organized, and it also gives you a renewed sense of enjoyment for your home.
