5 Ideas For Creating A Laundry Nook
Most of us don't have the luxury of sending our laundry out to be done for us, so we have to do it at home. Creating a neat and organized area to do laundry can be a daunting task, but there are lots of ways to do it right and give it character. Here are five ideas to simplify the process and give new life to your laundry space.
Decide on a space that is out of the way, yet easy for the entire family to reach. Think about unused areas around the house: in your garage, or in a large closet or mudroom. This keeps your family's laundry out of sight.
Decide how you want to sort your laundry necessities. Install shelving at a convenient height to keep everything clear of the washer and dryer. Purchase clear bins to store bedding sets, seasonal clothing, and blankets. Label them for easy recognition later. Use wire baskets to hold dryer sheets and plastic cups or glass jars to organize clothespins and other small items.
Liven up your laundry nook with family photos or wall art. Choose images that have bright colors and uplifting scenes to add character. Paint the walls a pretty color to give them individual flair.
Make it ergonomic. Organize and decorate the area so that it remains functional for the entire household. Strategically place things so they're easy to reach and not in danger of falling. Don't clutter the work area with items that just get in the way.
Out of Sight
Keep your laundry out of sight by getting creative with spare linens scattered throughout your home. Use old tablecloths or bed sheets to make a curtain that separates the nook from other rooms. This is an easy and inexpensive way to finish off your laundry nook.
