The Laundry Room


Remember the times when you find yourself under a heap of unwashed clothes. Dirty, filthy clothes of kids and sometimes a pile of clothes of even the guests, who can pay a surprise visit any time of the year. Since winter is round the corner, it’s the time of year when you remove summer clothes from your closet and make space for the winter wears. And you mostly wash the unwanted clothes and pack them safe until the winters are gone. As a result you start spending a lot of time in the laundry area. Washing, drying, ironing, arranging and repeating the process several times. And you must have realized that the laundry area seems bland and uninteresting and is certainly overlooked while planning the decoration and design of other areas of home.

And that’s exactly the reason we have come up with design and décor ideas that can easily improve the quality, look and feel of the laundry room.

1. Lighting – never underestimate the power of a well planned and sorted lighting in a room. It can brighten up even the dullest of spaces. Having a lot of windows is a good to option to have natural lights. However, possibilities of window(s) in a laundry space seems little difficult. So now you know the role of lighting in the area. We advice to go for white fluorescent bulbs for the same. Yes, they might not look appealing, but look at the bright side. The light is white enough to let you look for the stains easily which I guess serves the purpose of a laundry space.

2. Cleaning Products – to be honest, there are more cleaning products in the laundry room than in a make-up kit of a female. And keeping them as they are (in their original packaging) can look not very likable. Here we suggest you to take them out of their packaging and store in more visually appealing containers and canisters.

3. Laundry Basket – we generally have to carry our laundry basket every room we go in search for clothes to be washed, which definitely is time consuming and also bothers your back as well. What if you get container that reduces your work load. Yes, we are talking about laundry basket with wheels. This product will make your life a lot easier.

4. Use Hooks – hooks are blessings especially in the laundry area. We personally prefer having loads of them. Then why not make them a bit more visually appealing by trying a collection of different designs, styles and shapes.

5. Space For Artwork – art doesn’t need a particular place and that’s a universal truth. Art cab be exhibited anywhere even in bathrooms. Then why not in the laundry area!!? We believe art can be transformational and can make the highly neglected laundry room come alive. Since you won’t find much space to go for big frames. Having small postcard sized frames could be easily accommodated.

Hope this winter season you transform your laundry room from a mundane to an exciting space.
