People don’t give much thought to their laundry room. It is an important part of the house for sure, but because it is not a place where visitors often see, homeowners are often just contented with keeping it as simple and as mundane as possible.
With that in mind, is it worth renovating your laundry room? Think about how many hours you spend in your laundry room every week—long hours with nothing but the fragrance of soap and the humming of the washing machine, and the cluttered box of soap, dirty clothes and laundry baskets as your companion. A little bit of improvement or renovation can help make your laundry room more functional and relaxing.
- Entertainment systems
Let’s face it: washing clothes is not a leisurely task. Unless you like watching clothes being tumbled around inside the washing machine, doing the laundry can be a bit boring. What if you add a sound system in your laundry room to cover the stressful humming sound of the washing machine, wouldn’t it make washing clothes a little bit more enjoyable? Why don’t you try adding a TV in there so you can watch your favourite TV series while waiting for timer to go off? That should change the mundane task of doing laundry more exciting. Just because it’s a chore doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your time while doing it.
Adding a window in your laundry room will improve air circulation and will make the space look bigger. It will also save you money because you no longer have to turn your laundry room lights on if you do your laundry during the day.
One of the reasons laundry rooms become unsightly is the clutter—boxes of laundry soap, laundry baskets, and others on the floor. Adding a shelf to organize these items will make your laundry room look cleaner and more relaxing. It also helps finding items easier so you don’t have to waste time finding them. Having a renovation company add a permanent shelf attached to the wall itself would be a good idea than buying shelves that may topple over. Counters and table for folding or ironing clothes are also great for laundry rooms.
Just because no visitors ever get to see it doesn’t mean you don’t have to make your laundry room as efficient and as clean as possible. Adding windows and shelves makes the whole room brighter, cleaner and more organized while adding some entertainment appliances makes laundry day a little more enjoyable.
