A splash of color and well-organized storage brightens a laundry room
Apr 29 2011
Laundry rooms aren't usually high on the list of decorating projects. But making it attractive as well as organized may be the enticement a homeowner needs to get laundry duties done.
A splash of color and sufficient storage makes the laundry room attractive and organized.
But painting the laundry area with a splash of color sets it apart from other nearby rooms or sections of the basement. A small bulletin board for children's drawings or family photos can also make this spot more inviting.
If the laundry isn't hidden away in the basement, but in a more public area of the house, there are ways to camouflage it, according to MyHomeIdeas.com.
For front-loading appliances, the website advises setting a wooden countertop across them and using it as a folding area. A table skirt can be attached with a shower curtain tension rod, so the skirt can be moved aside easily when wash day comes.
An ironing board, an overhead rack for hangers and shelving for laundry products can be added to keep the area organized.
An attractive window treatment for a nearby window will bring a decorative touch to the space. Pleated shades stack tightly when raised to let in light, and provide the same privacy as regular shades when lowered.
