It’s impossible not to get bored of your home eventually. It’s normal to want to upgrade your kitchen, living room, garage, or other common rooms, but what about laundry room renovations?

The laundry room is one of the most forgotten spaces when thinking about renovations. Did you know that you could make your space much more efficient and better-looking with just a few upgrades?

Read on if you want to learn how to make your laundry space more functional with just a few changes. If you want to make the most of your laundry space, don’t hesitate to contact our team at Truax Design Centre.

Do You Need to Renovate Your Laundry Space?

The answer depends on each person’s home scenario. Most families spend more time than they think doing laundry, so why would they neglect that space when it’s time to upgrade? Typically, we forget about laundry room renovations because they’re spaces that guests don’t see often.

If you upgrade your laundry room, not only will you get a more efficient space to work, but you can also increase the resale value of your home!

You don’t have to do a full upgrade if you don’t want, either. Even repairing your washing machine or dryer can get you excellent results!

Are you unsure of whether you should customize your laundry or mudroom space? Think about how much you do laundry, how comfortable you feel while doing it, if the room is cramped, and how appealing the space looks. Our professionals can also help you decide on what the best foot forward is.

What Can You Do to Renovate Your Laundry Space?

Renovations are exciting, especially when you can completely customize a space and rebuilding laundry closets! We can even make smaller spaces work for you.  There are some great tips below to get your renovation started!

Custom Laundry Closet Design

Upgrade the Appliances

Your appliances will wear out and stop working eventually, even if they’re made to last for decades. Here, you have two options: Repair the machines or upgrade them.

If you have the budget, you should definitely get newer appliances, as they will make your laundry experience better. If you don’t have the money for that right away, another option is to get your old appliances repaired so that they work again at their full capacity.

Another item you should consider changing (if you haven’t already) is your laundry room tub. They’re great spaces to soak stained clothes or wash delicate things. There are many materials to choose from for your sink, although stainless steel is among the most popular ones.

Move Your Items Around

Sometimes, all it takes to renovate your laundry room is to be smart about placements. Move around your appliances and make your room more comfortable. Think about the process of doing laundry:

  • Sorting Clothes
  • Pre-Treating Stains
  • Loading the Washing Machine
  • Adding Detergent / Bleach / Fabric Softener
  • Transferring Clothes to the Dryer
  • Racks for Air-dried Clothes
  • Folding the Clothes

This process may take some time, though, so make sure you get a professional to help you design a better outline for your laundry room and its appliances.

Create More Storage Spaces

There are dozens of ways to optimize your laundry room space, even if it’s too small.

If you have a front-loading machine, for example, you could get a countertop above it. Your new counter top space allows you to store your folded clothes, dryer sheets, and more.

Another excellent way to save space is to get a pull-out drying rack or a folding ironing board.

You can save some money too by creating a dedicated countertop space and buying foldable or pull-out items.

Install New Flooring

Your laundry room floor must be unique. This flooring material must resist sand, dirt, water, chemicals, and more with ease.

Porcelain tile/ceramic tile are popular options among many homeowners. If you’re looking for something with more water resistance, you can also get vinyl, which is more affordable. If you are looking for extreme durability and infinite designs, you can look at calling an epoxy contractor for your flooring.

Move Everything to a Larger Space

Do you have an unused room at home? Consider using it as a laundry space.

The main drawback of this idea is that you’ll have to install new plumbing and floor drains, as well as other utilities/fixtures, so if you’re looking for a low-cost laundry room, this may not be such a great option.

Most of the money you’ll spend on your renovations will go to labour. Make sure to talk to our professional designers to come up with a cost-effective laundry room idea.

Other Reno Ideas

There are many other ideas to improve your laundry room design, from getting a new paint colour for your tiles to adding or repairing your utilities. The goal here is to make you excited to go and deal with your dirty laundry every week!
