Effective planning can help create a multi-purpose, usable laundry room.
Laundry is an ongoing chore, like dishes, and organization is the key to getting it done and done fast. If you are looking for a fall remodeling project, let me suggest looking at that crowded catch-all laundry room. Gone are the days of the washer and dryer in the basement or crammed in a corner off the garage door entrance. Laundry rooms have always been a necessity, but today's version is not just your grandmother's laundry room anymore.
Today's laundry rooms need to function in more than one capacity, often doubling as a mud room for the gardener and kids' muddy shoes in the wet season. How about a sewing center or arts and crafts area for the kid's homework and projects? The laundry room has even made it above the first floor, near the nursery or off the master bedroom. Most any free space could become the new laundry room, even along the hallway.
There are a few things to carefully consider when you get ready to remodel or even if you are building new.
The average family does seven to eight loads of laundry per week. Take a load off and make this chore more efficient and organized with good planning and advice from professionals.
