Everyone wants to make laundry as quick and easy as possible. While it might always be a hassle to pre-treat stains or iron work shirts, there are some simple upgrades you can make in your laundry room area to make washing clothes quicker and less taxing. Check out our ideas below.
It’s often tempting to throw dry laundry into a basket and forget about it. When you have a large counter in your laundry room, it’s much easier to fold your clothes right away. You can also sort items on the counter before leaving the room, so it’s easier to take them to the right family member’s dresser or create stacks and have everyone pick up their own laundry.
When you have hanging rods or a drying rack right in the laundry room, you can easily hang up items that can’t go in the dryer. When everything is dry, it’s easy to recombine items from the dryer and the hanging rod. A little less running around for each load will make a big difference over time. To save energy and money, consider hang drying an entire load from time to time.
Foldout Ironing Board
A foldout ironing board in your laundry room is both out of the way and easy to access. You can simply pull clothes off hangers or out of the dryer and iron right in your laundry room. No more dragging the ironing board around the house. Plus, it can be installed to fold out at the perfect height for you, so you don’t have to worry about adjusting it each time.
A Drawer or Cabinet System
A drawer system can store built-in garbage cans and laundry baskets as well as a foldout ironing board. This is a great option if you want all these things in reach, but also out of sight for a clean, simple look in your laundry room. You can even create cabinetry for storing your washer and dryer, so they’re hidden behind sleek-looking doors.
Adding cabinets, drawers, or shelves to your laundry room is also a good way to safely store detergents, fabric softeners, and other laundry supplies. Opt for higher shelves and cabinets or add child locks to doors and drawers if you’re concerned about kids or pets getting into potentially dangerous substances.
