The laundry is probably not a place you would like to go to. But you can make it easier to use. By doing so, you can keep it organized, useful and perhaps even part of the home that you really hope to enter.
If you ask most people what they don’t like about their clothes, they’ll say that it is too messy, cluttered or doesn’t have enough space. But the truth is that most laundries have a lot of space and are rarely used. Being aware of the possibility of usable laundry space can give you even more storage space than you thought you had before.
With only one shelf above the washer and dryer, we usually use only about 2.5 meters of that space. No wonder we all feel that we have no place to put anything!
Use this space to its fullest potential. Get off that shelf and start from scratch. You can decide to build a platform with a rubber lining to place under the sink and the dryer. This significantly reduces washing and drying noise and also provides usable space downstairs to store bedding, off-season clothing, whatever suits you. Even if you have a pre-loaded washer and dryer, lifting them takes you to a more ergonomic height, avoiding stress and back pain.
Next, consider a workspace. One thing to consider is a folding table. Below is an area to store baskets and sinks.
You can decide to place a cabinet under the counter for your boxes or bottles of heavy laundry detergent. A sliding box is also used to place it in a lower cabinet. You can even decide to put two boxes in the cabinets; One with a self-closing lid to dry cloths and shovels and the other for recyclable materials, such as laundry bottles and fabric softener.
Deep lockers are useful in a laundry room. Install them higher than you normally would and place a hanging bar under them. Choose some hangers, like metal hangers, to dry delicate things.
You can also install small buckets or container shelves on a laundry wall. Choose a bucket or container for each family member and another for money.
