Laundry Room Makeover Ideas
Let’s face it. No one likes spending time in the laundry. But what if you transformed your dark and dingy laundry room into a beautiful space to enjoy the cathartic clothes cleaning experience? Our theory: the nicer you make your laundry room, the less tedious laundry will seem. Here are our laundry room makeover ideas.
Make it light
Use light colours to make your laundry calm, peaceful and welcoming. Avoid dark colours that make the room feel pokey and dingy. If you have a window in your laundry room, keep it open for fresh air and give the blinds a miss. This room deserves lots of natural light.
Build from the ground up
Older homes tend to have those brown tiles from the 1970s. The floor alone created a dreary atmosphere in the laundry. Start by replacing dark tiles with light ones. Polished concrete flooring is also a popular choice for modern, revamped laundries. Contact us here to find out more about our polished concrete projects. You can paint over ceramic tiles if you like, however, this will require a bit of work. You’ll need to clean, sand and remove dust from the tiles before carefully painting the tiles with Epoxy or Latex paint. Laminated wooden flooring also looks gorgeous, although be mindful that this flooring can lift if there’s any water damage in the room.
Like any area in the home, keeping it tidy will help inspire you to be in that space. If you don’t have cupboard space, keep your laundry room organised with storage baskets for your cleaning products. Shelving also comes in handy to keep the space organised.
A spacious laundry sink is essential. Even though modern washing machines have a handwash cycle, I personally still prefer to hand wash certain delicates in a sink. I also clean my shoes in the laundry sink. Adelaide Outdoor Kitchens designs and creates beautiful polished concrete sinks in a range of sizes and colours.
Install sleek and modern benchtops to sort, fold or hold your storage baskets. Guidance for laundry benchtops if much the same as in the kitchen. It should be durable, water resistant and suit your laundry room’s style. Older homes tend to have the laminated benchtops which tend to look a bit tacky. Modernise your laundry room with a protected timber or published concrete benchtop. We can help with this.
