When it comes to choosing a place to hold your washer and dryer, many homeowners prefer the garage laundry room because it frees up space inside the home, and is more accessible than a basement laundry room. If you want to create a garage laundry room, then here are several ideas for you. The garage is often a catch-all space in the home, used as a workshop, a parking area and for general storage. For some homeowners, the garage is only space available for a laundry room. When space is limited, consider purchasing a stackable unit. The washer and dryer fit on top of one another, saving space. Another space saving option is to purchase units that fit under a counter. Under the counter units can be hidden behind cabinet doors, and the counter space provides ample work space for folding, sorting and arranging laundry. Then, for garage laundry room, add desks, Internet connections and a large armoire to hold supplies. Finish the laundry area with counter space and plenty of storage. Use a customizable closet system to create shelving, cabinets and drawers suited to the physical dimensions of the room.
Fill the armoire with homework and crafting supplies. Be sure to install adequate lighting, and paint the walls a happy, bright color to make the space inviting. You can also add a shelving unit on wheels to easily move garage laundry supplies around the room as needed. Repurpose old wardrobes by removing the doors to create space for hang-dry laundry items. Rolling racks and fold-away drying racks provide extra space for hanging and sorting laundry. Provide labeled baskets for each family member to keep things organized.
