It wasn’t long ago that laundry rooms were almost always regulated to the basement in most of the country. California homes often don’t have basements but laundry was often regulated to garages or other out-of-the-way areas. Today’s home designs are more and more often featuring laundry facilities in more convenient areas.
We are seeing many homeowners choose to have their laundry rooms built right off of their kitchens. If this is something you are interested in then we suggest contacting Mission West Kitchen and Bath at 626-799-3503 to learn more about the options that would work best for your needs. In the meantime, read on to find out more about four tips that can help you make the most of a laundry room off your kitchen.
There is no reason that your laundry room has to exist solely for doing laundry. Can it also be a mudroom? What about a room for storing sports equipment? By adding extra sinks, countertops, or peg boards, you can take a plain laundry room and turn it into a room that helps with many needs.
When’s the last time you saw a laundry room that had any kind of style? They are most commonly white with white walls. Instead of this hygienic option, consider designing your laundry room to have its own style. For example, install a unique sink instead of the standard issue laundry room sink. Install a luxury countertop to fold your laundry.
Most homeowners wish they had more storage area in their kitchen. Whether they would use it as a home for appliances and kitchen gadgets they don’t use often, for dry goods, or for an extra freezer, the laundry room can double as a pantry.
One of the most sought-after elements homebuyers are looking for are smart technologies throughout the home. This can include advanced washers and dryers as well as security if the laundry room has an exterior exit. Why not install a TV in the corner so you can watch while you fold? Whatever the specifics, adding technology to any room is a great way to get the most from it and to add value to the home.
While you are working on technology make sure you are thinking of safety too. For example, consider locks for cabinets that have cleaners and chemicals that could harm kids or pets.
