While a specific laundry room placement or design may not be at the top of your new home must-haves, they are important rooms that should be given thought. You will spend a significant amount of time in your laundry room therefore it should be convenient, easily accessible and enjoyable to spend time in.
Here at Holland Homes we believe that your home should be perfect for you and your lifestyle. Our experienced team members will work alongside you every step of the way to build your perfect home. Here are things to consider when building your laundry room:
When designing or looking for your dream home, it is important to consider the type of wall treatments that your living room will have.
Since you will be handling wet clothing, steaming or ironing clothes, removing stains, and any other tasks that your laundry may require, choosing a durable wall treatment is important. Another thing to consider when it comes to your walls is choosing a material that is water resistant or proof to ensure that cleaners and water do not cause damage and can be easily wiped away.
The location of your laundry room should not be overlooked or made quickly.
There are many factors that could influence the location of your laundry room such as the placement of your bedrooms and utilities. Placing your laundry room near bedrooms is very convenient for the laundry process. There are a few necessities for laundry rooms when it comes to utilities since they need hot and cold water hook ups as well as the ability to drain. This is why placing them above, below or next to the kitchen or bathrooms is most convenient.
While lighting might not seem like a decision that needs to be made in a laundry room, it can completely change the vibe of the space.
If your laundry room is dark and not well lit, it can not only make tasks more difficult to complete but also not make you want to enter the space. Natural lighting or bright light fixtures and light sources can make your laundry room feel inviting, brighter and bigger.
Depending on the size of your space and type of appliances you have, you may have options when it comes to the orientation and set-up of your laundry space.
If you have stackable appliances and a larger room, you will have the option to stack them or place them side by side. Placing them side by side will allow for a flat surface for folding and storage while stacking them could allow for a storage unit to be placed next to it or dirty laundry baskets.
If you do decide to create a counter space for folding or ironing, it’s important to choose a non-porous material that will not absorb the water or moisture of your washed clothing and bedding.
Your laundry room can be a luxurious space that you will not mind spending time in if you use the space efficiently. Each room in your house should be welcoming and a representation of you and your style.
