All too often, the laundry room is overlooked when it comes to home improvement projects. For some reason, most people don’t give it much thought, but the fact is, if you give it a little bit of a DIY makeover, you can truly transform the space into a part of your home that is much more cozy, and in turn, can make doing laundry a little bit more enjoyable. After all, who doesn’t love to spend time in an aesthetic room? Here are some easy ways to elevate your laundry room into a stylish space you actually won’t mind doing laundry in.
Custom Shelves and Storage
One of the easiest ways to immediately elevate your laundry space is to add in some custom shelving. You can choose the material you like best and think about your storage needs and then build the shelves according to your exact needs. You can add some shelving above the washer and dryer to keep all of the laundry essentials like detergent close by. Another idea is to add a folding station with a countertop that will make organizing your finished laundry a breeze.
Add A Backsplash
A backsplash is a simple hack to make a room look much more finished than just a plain wall. Best of all? You don’t even have to add real tiles. Instead, choose peel and stick tiles or peel-off wallpaper to create a custom wall that you can install in no time and also remove whenever you want.
Add A Sorting System
You can make your life a whole lot easier by adding a sorting system to your laundry. This includes having separate baskets for your white laundry, colors, and delicate items. Label each basket so that it’s clear. You can also add in cabinets where you can store the bins so that they’re out of sight until you’re doing the laundry.
Fold-Down Drying Rack
You can make the most of your space, even if you don’t have much, by adding in a drying rack that folds down. A drying rack is important for any delicate items that have to air dry, and this makes it super easy to take them out of the washer and place them directly on a drying rack. Then, when you’re done using it, you can simply fold it away and use that space as you wish.
Refresh Paint & Lighting
This applies to all over your home, but you’d be amazed what a fresh coat of paint can do for a space, especially the laundry room. Choose a color that is serene and will make you feel cozy as you do the laundry. Find a simple light fixture that you like and watch how it completely transforms the room with minimal effort.
Add Some Pizazz
Here is where you can add some personality: add in any artwork and decor you like, add some plants to the shelves, and accessorize with baskets. While it might seem small, these touches will make all the difference.
