Functional Small Laundry Rooms
Creating a laundry room in a small space is all about organization. The more space saving equipment and storage in small laundry rooms, the better. Creating functional small laundry rooms can cut down the time it takes to wash, fold and organize a load of clothes. In small laundry rooms, a stackable washer and dryer unit makes an ideal space-saving solution. If room allows, consider a front-loading washer and dryer to incorporate a little folding area into the laundry room. For exceptionally small laundry rooms, a dual-purpose washer and dryer unit may be the only practical appliance choice. Make the most of all wall space to hang and store items. Install a wire shelf with a sliding rod attached for dual-purpose hanging space. Hang hooks on the wall as a less-expensive but practical option for storing laundry bags or other items. A small rolling cart, designed specifically for laundry rooms, is a practical and economical solution for storing laundry products. A wall-mounted drying rack is another good option for drying and hanging small items.
Keep lighting bright in the small laundry rooms. To ensure that you are able to work efficiently, use the brightest wattage bulbs allowable. If possible, install recessed lighting. Avoid dark colors in a small laundry room. Instead, use bold color combinations like yellow and blue, or cream and green; be sure that the combinations coordinate with color schemes in adjoining rooms.
