Most of us have a laundry. It doesn’t mean it’s a separate room or corner, for some it might be included in the kitchen or bathroom
Even if you are one of the lucky ones who has a separate room for your laundry, it doesn’t mean it’s easier to keep your laundry clean and tidy.
By the time you have done all the washing, a new pile is waiting. Especially when you have kids, the piles of dirty clothes seem to never end. The wet weather doesn’t help either…
There are so many aspects you can focus on in your laundry that help you to stay organised and make you leave the door open for everyone to see:
1. Pull-Out Hampers
First of all, think of pull-out hampers. They aren’t just super convenient but also hide away the piles of clothes behind the cabinet doors. It’s a great first step to keep your laundry tidy.
2. Creating space in your laundry
Additionally, think of space. Space to fold clothes, to hang them up to dry and to store your folded clothing until you put it away. This can be achieved with a nice benchtop, shelves on the wall or you continue your storage space with overhead cabinets. Always keep in mind a small space to dry clothes in, a space to fold your clothes, and another area to store folded clothes until you’re ready to put them away (whether that’s on the same day or in a week’s time… We know the struggle…).
3. Include a laundry sink
Don’t forget to include a special laundry sink too. Laundry sinks usually are deeper or wider than normal kitchen sinks to make sure there’s enough room to soak your clothes or bedding if needed. There are many different sink options. Check out different models, sizes and finishes to match your style!
4. Choosing the right appliances
The most important part of a laundry are probably the appliances. A frond loader will allow you to maximise the bench space on top of it, or you could even install the dryer above it. Everyone is different and has different needs. A single person won’t need the same size washing machine as a family of 6 needs. Look at your needs and get the right fit for you!
5. Sliding and folding doors
If you work together with a cabinet maker, you can even easily hide your appliances away by using sliding or folding doors. It’s a great way to keep your laundry separate, especially if you need to use space of another room for your laundry area.
