Laundry Room Ideas to Freshen Your Space

Cute and Organized Laundry Room in Gainesville Rental HomeThe laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. Just in case yours isn’t absolutely to your liking yet, there are easy ways to change that. It is, in truth, quite simple to upgrade both the functionality and style of your laundry room with a little time and a few simple design ideas.

Often, all that is required to freshen your Gainesville rental property are a few thoughtful touches. For illustration, seriously consider designing your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic. A newly done paint job will go a long way to freshening up the room, along with a good cleaning. But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can turn your laundry room into a cheerful spot. By simply using cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme, you can easily upgrade your laundry room and create it a fresh new feel.

For plenty of homes, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal, although it is possible to achieve both. Adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer is a perfect way to provide yourself with the storage you’re looking for, all the while enabling you to update the space with a contemporary look. If, in any case, you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can seek and buy inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. Or, you can buy inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving and install it on the wall. By applying a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and elegance to your laundry room.

Together with cabinets and shelves, there are lots of other simple creative approaches to keep your laundry room well-organized and give it a personal flair. You can easily try installing a large pegboard on one wall and hang baskets, laundry tools, and other items in a creative and organized way. Some very good and effective ideas include 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 both in an orderly fashion and well out of sight.

In case the space is quite tight, you could just add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. Washer pedestals are simply sturdy boxes designed to support your washer and dryer. Quite a lot can be done in just a few hours with a few boards and stock molding.

If it follows that your laundry room is more like that of a laundry closet, you could still successfully freshen the space with a bit of work. A beautiful shelf, some matching baskets, and a decorative touch or two could certainly change the barest and tiniest laundry area into a warm, nice part of the house. If your budget has room for it, a beautiful set of sliding doors can turn an ordinary laundry closet into one of your desired spaces of the house.

With just a bit of organized planning and dedicated effort, it is quite easy to be able to obtain the laundry room you’ve dearly longed for. In the long term, you will certainly see that the effort you’ve put in has been more than worth it. Really, not only can a renovated laundry room help keep you organized, but it can also deeply boost your enjoyment of your home whenever you use it.
