Practical ideas that work for small laundry renovations
Because laundries are smaller areas (particularly if you have an older home), there is usually not a lot of scope for reconfiguration of the layout – but that doesn’t mean you have to forgo the extra space you crave.
By removing an existing broom closet (as we did in the renovation pictured opposite), installing new cabinetry and/or stacking the washing machine and clothes dryer, you can instantly gain more bench space and storage.
You can also create more usable areas by installing rails, racks, hooks and open shelving.
Make the laundry a pleasure to be in, whatever the task at hand
Although we generally like to keep laundry designs simple, they do not have to be as tedious as some of the tasks they accommodate.
While colours for cabinetry, benchtops and tiles are usually kept neutral, you can create some interest and variation with a feature or contrasting splashback tile or coloured tapware.
A few decorative items such as baskets or silk plants add warmth, a framed picture can serve as a focal point, and scented sticks will keep the room smelling fresh and clean. But be careful not to overdo the styling as you want to make sure there is enough room for its intended purpose and avoid creating more cleaning and maintenance.
