Unlike a kitchen or living room that gets full attention when designing a house, the laundry room is often left dormant. Most laundry rooms simply carry out their functions to “wash and dry” hot, messy, and not “appropriate” shows.
Even if you are creative, by adding some accessories, the laundry room can still be interesting. Here are some tips for designing your laundry room to look better and more comfortable:1. Elevate the position of the washing machine
Although the price is more expensive, the washing machine and front opening dryer (not the top opening) are later more popular because of the more efficient use of energy and load more dirty clothes with a more ergonomic design. Consider replacing your washing machine with this type as a long-term investment, then elevate its position. Usually, the front openings are low so you have to squat to pick up and remove clothes. Though clothes when we will increase in weight. With a higher position, the washing process becomes more comfortable and you avoid back pain.
2. Provide a folding table
If the washing machine needs to be elevated, look for a shorter folding table. When folding clothes that are rather large like pants or sheets, our bodies spin, look down and lean forward and backward. A folding table that is slightly lower will make it easier for you to do the work and once again save your back and shoulders.
3. Push washing basket
This type of basket will prevent you from carrying heavy clothes. Baskets that can be pushed also save space in the laundry room because they can be placed under a table or cabinet.
4. Use an open shelf
Open shelves save space for a laundry room that also makes it easy for you to reach detergents or whatever you need when washing. Open shelves will also “force” you to be neater because everything is visible. Shelves can be placed in high places or vice versa, depending on your taste and comfort.
5. Join the ironing room
Forget conventional ironing boards that have to be dragged from one corner and placed near the power outlet before use. An ironing board with a system that is “implanted” in a closet on the wall or in a drawer, besides saving space, the height can also be adjusted according to comfort. If not used, the ironing table can be folded so that the room is neater.
6. Don’t forget to hang out
Back to save space in the laundry room, use a tug drying system embedded in the ceiling. When not in use, the position does not take up space. If this system is not possible, use a hook on the ceiling to hang something that can be used for drying. The location will be higher, so you might need a coat hanger and a stick to hang it on. But the heat from the ceiling will make it dry faster.
Now your laundry room is no longer a crowded corner at home.
