Laundry Room Design and Storage Ideas

The laundry room is often overlooked and under-appreciated, yet it is one of the most important spaces in a modern home. Not only are laundry rooms used for washing and folding clothes, but they can also become a multipurpose storage area. 


Even though the amount of space may vary depending on the size of the home and where it’s located, a well-designed laundry room can make your chores a little more enjoyable.



Basement Laundry Rooms

The location of the laundry room plays an important role in determining the most suitable and practical design. The basement is the most traditional place where the laundry room would be located in a home. Basements have unlimited design opportunities to create aesthetically pleasing yet productive workspaces. Additional tables, lighting, exposed and closed Italian-crafted cabinetry, and floating shelves can be added to turn your laundry room into a multipurpose workspace while you wait for your load of clothing to finish.

Upper-Level Laundry Rooms

When your laundry room is located in the upper levels of a house, design and efficient storage is even more important as it can overlap with other components of your home. Counter space can be built over front-loading laundry machines to make use of the limited working area. Overhead cabinets and shelving can be installed on the wall to create extra storage space. Ironing boards can be stowed neatly away in small sections of the room, or a wall-mounted ironing board can be installed on an empty wall to make use of the free space. A hanging drying rack may also be designed to hang off the ceiling and lowered when needed. Ensure that your laundry supplies are easily accessible with extra cabinets, while also being able to easily dry and fold your laundry with the efficiently designed counter space.
