Regardless of its size, your laundry room is one of the most important rooms in your home, doing the laundry is one of the main chores at home and is key to maintaining a clean and functional household. Your laundry room will constantly be in use, therefore, it should be functional and efficient. This space doesn't necessarily need to be a boring place. It is desirable that your laundry room has a comfortable and functional configuration and a modern design that matches your home design as well. Check out these laundry room trends of 2017 that will come in handy when planning your laundry room for your new custom dream home.
Many homeowners have this question when planning their home design. The best place for your laundry room will depend completely on your needs, the size of your home, and the size of your family. The preferred location for laundry rooms among our homeowners is the second storey. This might be a convenient location for every family member, it is not visible to visitors on the main floor and doesn't have to take up a lot of space on your second storey, in fact, and it can be designed to appear as a hallway closet. Other widely picked locations for a laundry room are the basement and mudroom. Although with these two areas you might want to take into consideration all the stairs it would take for your laundry to get there, with a beautiful design it might turn out into an excellent and comfortable space.
IInclude Plenty of Storage
Having an organized and functional laundry room entails having plenty of well-designed storage items. Discuss with your home builder and designer to select custom cabinetry, add pull-outs such as drying racks, drawers, or an ironing table, and don't forget that you will need a counter space. In 2017, the trends for laundry rooms include a built-in closet on which to hang all items and prevent your laundry from wrinkling.
Space, Colour, and Light
Usually, laundry rooms are small, and you don't need it to take up a large space in your home. To create a sense of larger space, our homeowners are going for light colours or just choosing white for walls and cabinets, and luxurious dark appliances. If you can add a window to your laundry room, natural light will help to create a sense of larger space. If a window is not in your plans, you can try under-cabinet lighting that can accentuate and transform the appearance of your laundry room.
