Laundry Room Ideas to Freshen Your Space

Cute and Organized Laundry Room in Cudahy Rental HomeThe laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. There are easy ways to change that if your room is a disappointment. It is easy to upgrade both the functionality and style of your laundry room with a little time and a few simple design ideas.

From time to time, a few thoughtful touches are all it takes to reinvigorate your Cudahy rental property. What if you try designing your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic? It’s a great idea to get some creative juices flowing. If you want to freshen up the look of your space, some good old cleaning might do the trick or you can opt to go for a new paint job that will go a long way to revitalizing the look of your laundry room! But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can turn your laundry room into a cheerful spot. If you choose cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme, this can easily give your laundry room a fresh new feel.

For other homeowners, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. Both are quite achievable. Adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer is one way to add storage, while also updating the space with a new look. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can find inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. Inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving makes for really good DIY cabinets. Grab some if you find them. With a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and beauty to your laundry room.

Other than cabinets and shelves, you can try other methods of adding life to your laundry room. All it takes is a bit of effort. You might try installing a large pegboard on one wall and hang baskets, laundry tools, and other items in a creative and organized way. Also, you can try 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 arranged and accessible.

If the room isn’t big enough, you can add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. Washer pedestals are simply sturdy boxes designed to support your washer and dryer. It doesn’t take an engineer to build these boxes. All you need are some boards and stock molding, as well as a few hours of your day.

If your laundry room is more like a laundry closet, freshening up that space is still very much possible in some ways. A beautiful shelf, some matching baskets, and a decorative touch or two can make your seemingly dull area into something more attractive and vibrant. An ordinary laundry closet can turn into a beautiful space with a few simple renovations. If it’s within your budget, a beautiful set of sliding doors can do this for you.

Think through the details, and then map out all of the things that you’ll need to modify your old laundry room. Follow these few simple details, and watch how you’ll come out in the end with a newfound attraction for this room. Ultimately, a renovated laundry room will do more for you than just help keep you organized — it will bring about a warm feeling of gratification and appreciation for the newly decorated space.
