21 Feb Fall in Love With Laundry (Or at Least Your Laundry Room)
We all have chores that we don’t like to do. Of course, if we enjoyed them, they wouldn’t be chores! There’s always something that needs to be done around the house. Unfortunately, these tasks won’t go away and have to be completed by someone.
While chores are rarely fun, there are definitely a few tasks that are less enjoyable than others. Which of your household chores is your least favorite? Do you think sweeping stinks? Is dusting just too dreary? Does the idea of dishes fill you with dread? One of the most common complaints we hear about is doing the laundry.
A lot of the problem with the laundry begins with your laundry room, or the lack thereof. For many of us, there just isn’t enough space in our laundry rooms to properly handle our clothes. That’s why so many of us drag bins full of clothes and awkward ironing boards into our living rooms to watch our shows while we fold. What if we told you that laundry didn’t have to be this way? Learn more about how a custom laundry room from Closets by Design can make you fall in love with laundry all over again.
Customize Your Laundry Room to Maximize Space
Often, homeowners have little say in where their actual washer and dryer will go. Your hook-ups are already in place and that’s where your machines will live. Even so, that doesn’t mean you can’t customize the space around your washing machine. It turns out that there’s a lot you can do with your laundry room even after your washer and dryer have been installed.
One thing that you can do is customize your cabinets and shelving to make the most of your available space. Closets by Design helps homeowners personalize their laundry rooms into spaces where they actually want to spend their time. Consider adding customized shelving and drawers to have plenty of room for laundry detergent, fabric softener, and other laundry essentials.
Space to Fold Your Clothes
Another one of the biggest complaints we hear about laundry deals with more than doing the laundry itself; it’s having to fold and put away all those clothes. In fact, people hate folding clothes so much that they funded an invention to help fold clothes for them!
All too often, laundry rooms are crammed into tight hallways or shoehorned into entryways where you must step outside the space to have room to fold your clothes. As a result, we run into laundry rooms with little to no counter space all the time. So, where are you supposed to fold all those clothes?
The solution is to reclaim your space with the help of Closets by Design. Thanks to a wide variety of attractive countertops available, it’s never been easier to find the space you need to do your folding and store your laundry.
A Convenient Way to Iron Your Clothes
Beyond the actual hassle of washing and folding your clothes, we bet ironing might be one of the chores that people hate most. Ironing boards are big, unwieldy, hard to store, and a pain to deal with. Lucky for homeowners, Closets by Design has a solution for that.
By installing a built-in ironing board directly into the laundry room, you can eliminate the inconvenience of storing your ironing board while also making it easily accessible to get out those last-minute wrinkles. A wall-mounted ironing board also saves valuable space that can be used for something else.
If you don’t want your ironing board mounted on the wall, you can always have it hidden in your drawers themselves. That’s right, you can build your custom laundry room with a dedicated drawer just for your ironing board. As you can see in the picture above, this saves even more space while also giving you more surface area on which to fold your clothes.
Rekindle Your Flame with a Custom Laundry Room
Learn to love your laundry again with a custom laundry room. By combining convenience and accessibility with the beauty of modern design, a custom laundry room from Closets by Design can help you turn this chore into a treat.
