3 Home Remodeling Tips for Your Laundry Room | Bethesda, MD

3-home-remodeling-tips-for-your-laundry-room-bethesda-mdLaundry rooms are often over-looked when people begin considering home remodeling jobs. So much focus is placed on living rooms, kitchens, and baths that laundry rooms never get the love that they deserve.

Well, we think it's time for that to change...

If there ever was a room that needs a makeover, it's the laundry room. A place that conjures up pictures of, well, not too much for most people. Perhaps that's why it needs the love we think it does!

Here are 3 tips on turning your laundry room into a place you will want to spend more time in.

Home Integration: It's becoming more and more common for homeowners to integrate laundry rooms into other rooms of their home, saying goodbye to tucked away, drab rooms designed for one thing. In fact, in new architecture, laundry rooms resemble kitchens in placement, form and function, and some even have islands and built-ins.

Space Efficiency: In smaller homes attempting to be more energy and space conscious, laundry rooms have worked themselves into some of the more functional rooms. It's not at all uncommon to see laundry centers worked into bathrooms and kitchens, leaving what would have been the laundry room open for more square footage, like a guest bedroom.

Make it Pop: For homes where laundry is still its own function, separated into its own part of the home, seek design opportunities that turn normal laundry rooms in beacons of luxury. Consider it a necessary room in your home; paint it rich, inspiring colors; redesign parts that don't work for you and your family. Also, if your appliances are outdated, work new, modern washers and dryers into your budget, and enjoy the laundry room you always wanted.
