A laundry room is one of the busiest rooms in the house. Adding laundry room cabinets to your laundry room can provide storage for laundry detergent and stain treatments, other cleaning products and even pantry storage space. Laundry room cabinets also can go on to add the right amount of decor to your otherwise bland laundry room. You can opt for custom or stock cabinets for your laundry room, choosing colors and designs just for the utility room or matching them to your kitchen cabinetry. If you are hoping to add cabinets at a lower cost, you’ll find affordable basic cabinetry at most home improvement stores. Laundry rooms can include floor-to-ceiling cabinetry, cabinets above the washer and dryer or top and bottom cabinets, leaving a counter surface for folding.
For the design, focus on function as you design your laundry room cabinets. Measure out the space in your laundry room and what you need to store. Take your cabinets all the way to the ceiling to store holiday decorations, bulk goods or out-of-season clothes. Taller cabinets can act as a coat or broom closet while pull-out cabinetry and narrow shelves make food storage easy. If you have a larger utility room, add both wall cabinets and an island to hold laundry baskets.
