Lovely Laundry

October 17, 2011

Laundry rooms are all about work, so it’s essential that your laundry room layout optimizes the space to help you be efficient on laundry day.  The size of your laundry room isn’t as important as the way you arrange the  appliances and accessories.  Check out these lovely laundry rooms built by Cameo Homes Inc.

The first and most important principle of laundry room design is ease of access.  Not only should it be easy for you to load and unload clothes from your washing machine and dryer,  you should also be able to perform these tasks without bumping into things.  

Once you’ve created a well-lit layout that gives you  easy access to your appliances, the next step is to add helpful accessories that will make laundry day easier.  Keep a wastebasket near the dryer so you don’t have to walk anywhere to empty the lint trap.  If you want a  table for folding clothes, opt for a hanging table that you can lower when  needed and raise so its out of the way when it’s not in use.

Finally, don’t underestimate the power of a little decor.   Some pleasant accents, like flowers or pictures, will help laundry day be  a little more pleasant.  Also, since you’ll probably be working in the laundry  room for extended periods on a regular basis,  it’s good to invest a few dollars  in an inexpensive radio or CD player so you can listen to music while you sort,  fold, wash and dry laundry.

To help you accomplish these goals, take  careful measurements of the room you plan to use for laundry before you go  shopping for appliances.  This will help you select models that can fit  comfortably into the assigned space while leaving room left over for accessories  and laundry aids.
