How to Design For the Perfect Laundry Room

Today we are going to put our focus on a room that usually gets forgotten – the laundry room. Considering the amount of time that is typically spent in this room, it is silly how such little thought actually goes into its design and decor. Laundry rooms are used for a number of activities: laundry, storage, and as a pathway between the garage to the rest of the house, just to name a few.

Because the laundry room has so many uses, it is important to choose products and materials that are durable, long-lasting and easy to clean.

For the floor, we suggest a light colored tile for a few reasons. Light colored tile floors are:

• Easy to clean
• Waterproof
• Long-lasting

For the counters, there are a few options you have to choose from: granite, onyx or prefabricated counters. A common trend in laundry room design is “less is more”. A simple countertop such as the Imperial White granite countertop is a great option; not only is it aesthetically pleasing, this countertop is also:

• Easy to clean
• Long-lasting
• Simple and clean looking
• On trend

No laundry room is complete without an oversized sink . Whether you are hand washing a delicate top or frantically scrubbing your child’s soccer jersey covered in grass stains, a large sink is necessary and extremely practical. A lot of people think that just because the sink is going into the laundry room means it can be boring and low-quality. While it can be those things, the reality is why should it be?

Homeowners spend more time than they may like to believe in their laundry room, and because of this, it only makes sense that you choose a sink you actually like and enjoy! You will be surprised how big of an impact a sink can have on a room, especially a smaller room like the laundry room. No matter which material you choose, a farm-styled sink< is always a good choice. They are:
• Over-sized
• Easy to get objects in and out of
• Bold and beautiful

Next time you walk into your laundry room , think twice about leaving it looking boring and bare. Update the materials and the design of your laundry room and watch as you find yourself starting to enjoy the time you spend in it!
