Solve Your Laundry Room Decorating Dilemmas in Style
If you’re like many of us, the laundry room turns into central station for just about anything that needs washed. From sheets and linens to yesterdays practice jersey and everyday work clothes. And chances are, it all gets dumped in a heaping mess on top of the washer and on the floor. Get it all organized with a laundry room makeover that will put everything in its place with plenty of style too.
DILLEMA: A small laundry room offers little space for storage.
SOLUTION: Check behind the door. It’s a perfect place to add a wall-mount ironing board where it will stay ready to go when you need it and tucks slyly away when you don’t.
DILLEMA: Sorting piles of laundry on the floor feels messy and unorganized.
SOLUTION: Get those sorted piles up off the ground with colorful rolling laundry baskets on wheels. They keep everything separated and add a nice pop of color to a usually stark space. Plus, they serve double duty when it comes time to fold clean laundry, you can use one for each person in your home and roll it to their nearby rooms.
DILLEMA: There’s never one central place to keep all the little things, like dryer sheets, stain removers and hand washing supplies close at hand.
SOLUTION: Invest in an attractive laundry room organizer where you can organize shelves to hold everything you need in an easy-to-access space. Utilize pretty baskets on the shelves to catch little things like dress shirt collar tabs, stray buttons and spare change. If a full-size organizer doesn’t fit your space, go smaller with laundry shelving that is just the right size. Even better when the shelving comes in a fresh color to brighten up the room.
DILEMMA: No one ever goes in my laundry room but me, do I really need to decorate this room in my house too?
SOLUTION: First and foremost, no matter what the room, you should add décor that makes you feel comfortable in your home. Adding a touch of personality and style to your laundry room will make you feel great while you’re spending time there. Whimsical wall décor, such as words of wisdom or metal washed letters, can add just the right decorative touch.
DILEMMA: Laundry rooms never look attractive.
SOLUTION: Your laundry room might not be the first place you think about improving the decor, but there are many surprisingly attractive laundry units that can help organize all your cleaning items, sort your lights from your darks and look downright stylish at the same time.
