Laundry Room Ideas to Freshen Your Space

Cute and Organized Laundry Room in Mapleton Rental HomeThe laundry room should be a pleasant, functional space. If that’s not true of yours, there are easy ways to change that. It is easy to upgrade both the functionality and style of your laundry room with a little time and a few simple design ideas.

At times, your Mapleton rental property will need a few thoughtful touches from you to give it a sense of renewal. For instance, try designing your laundry room around a theme, such as modern or rustic. If you want to freshen up the look of your space, some good old cleaning might do the trick or you can opt to go for a new paint job that will go a long way to revitalizing the look of your laundry room! But beyond the basics, adding some visual elements or using an unexpected color scheme can turn your laundry room into a cheerful spot. Using cabinets, wall colors, and décor that fit within a specific theme will lead to a fresh new feel for your laundry room.

For a lot of houses, storage space is just as valuable as visual appeal. Is it even doable to achieve both? Of course! If you want to update your space while adding more storage, adding cabinets or shelves above the washer and dryer might do the trick. If you are a do-it-yourselfer, you can find inexpensive cabinets at a yard sale, thrift shop, or through local classifieds. If you find any inexpensive pre-fabricated cube shelving, you can mount that on your wall and use it as a makeshift cabinet. With a little creativity, some paint, and some new hardware, you could easily add both extra storage space and beauty to your laundry room.

Other than cabinets and shelves, you can try other methods of adding life to your laundry room. All it takes is a bit of effort. You might try installing a large pegboard on one wall and hang baskets, laundry tools, and other items in a creative and organized way. Another way of keeping things in place is by hanging your ironing board on the back of a door or nearby wall or adding a skinny cart between the washer and dryer to keep detergent and other laundry products organized.

If needed, add extra storage space with a washer pedestal. This works best with tight spaces. Washer pedestals are simply sturdy boxes designed to support your washer and dryer. For such a useful household piece, it doesn’t take a whole lot to make them. All you need are some boards and stock molding.

Freshen up the space of your laundry room — or laundry closet — with just a few easy steps and a bit of effort. A beautiful shelf, some matching baskets, and a decorative touch or two — watch how something as simple as these can instantly revive the look of your space. A beautiful set of sliding doors can turn an ordinary laundry closet into one that is elegant and classy. If this is something you want and can afford with your budget, this is a great way to redecorate your space!

Think through the details, and then map out all of the things that you’ll need to modify your old laundry room. Follow these few simple details, and watch how you’ll come out in the end with a newfound attraction for this room. After all, a renovated laundry room may help keep you organized, but it also brings about a new sense of fulfillment as a homeowner.
