While doing laundry may not be your idea of fun, if you want clean clothes, most of us need to get it done. Even though you might not be able to get out of doing it all together, having a well-organized laundry room can help make doing the laundry much easier and faster. With a few changes to the way your laundry space is set-up, you can make it more efficient and even add beauty to the room.
Creating Simplicity Through Flow
Having a laundry room that makes the chore easier can be as simple as developing a good work flow in the room. Think in the terms of an assembly line. First have an area to sort your laundry and pre-treat or soak. Then you have your areas to wash, dry, fold and iron. Keeping the flow going in one direction makes it easier to go through the steps and ultimately finish the job quicker.
Adding Organizing Options
Make the most of the space by adding shelves and cabinets to hold your tools for the job. Near your sorting station, you may need shelves for stain treatment. Near your washer and dryer, you can have cupboards or shelves to hold your detergent, bleach and fabric softeners. Once you get to the folding and ironing area, having a cupboard for your iron and board as well as a hanging space can keep everything within reach.
No one wants to spend time in a dark, gloomy room. Giving your laundry room a face-lift with new paint, bright lighting and a custom organization system can make the room more inviting.
