When it comes to doing laundry, your goal might be to get in and out of the laundry room as quickly as possible. After all, it’s laundry we’re talking about here!
But everyday household chores don’t have to be such a pain. Often simple tricks to spruce up the atmosphere can make doing chores much more pleasing.
In this post, we look at how you can create a dream laundry room using old cabinets and other fixtures you can find at your local Habitat ReStore.
Everything and a Kitchen Sink
This laundry room design by Better Homes and Gardens is spectacular and can easily be replicated at a fraction of the cost using shelving and cabinetry from the ReStore. Design Tip: The designer chose a pleasant blue paint as the primary color. Get rid of the drab feeling by using a pleasing color palette. Tools like this Color Palette Generator can help find your ideal color.
Designed with Kitchen Elements
In this design by HGTV, we find several elements typically found in a kitchen. They’ve transitioned nicely in this efficient and airy laundry room. Take a look at the glass front cabinets, perfect for seeing what is in the storage. Long cabinets, like those featured, can be installed on their side for easy access. And look at the tile back splash. It adds color and charm to an otherwise dull space and is an inexpensive decorative add on.
Space Sharing Laundry Rooms
Not every home has a separate laundry room. In some, you’ll find the washer and dryer tucked away in the kitchen or sharing space with the car in the garage. You can still make the space unique, fun and practical. The garage laundry area below is from Remodelaholic. One of the most clever features is the rod for storing hangers. Genius!
