Are you looking to renovate and remodel your home’s laundry room? Read below for top tips for reimagining your space to increase your personal productivity and the enjoyment of your home!
As a homeowner, there is nothing more frustrating than trying to navigate a cramped or poorly laid out room in your home. One area that can be most difficult to utilize is a laundry room. It’s a room that’s essential for providing space to wash, fold, and hang up clothes. The laundry room of many Connecticut and New York homes is also the location of furnaces, plumbing, and storage. With so little space holding so much, homeowners are left to ask, “How can I open this space up effectively?”
Fortunately, with the right team and strategy, you can take back your space with creative laundry room renovation and remodeling ideas. The team of renovation experts at Remodeling Consultants has years of experience helping homeowners in NY and CT boost their love of their home through high-quality remodels. Looking for inspiration for your laundry room remodel? Read below for some of our top tips and hints for taking back your space.
6 Laundry Room Renovation Ideas You’ll Love
1. Reclaimed Galley Space
If your laundry room is situated in a narrow area, take advantage of the galley layout by adding countertops above a front-loading washer and dryer. Consider adding recessed cabinet space above to increase your counter space and adding room for laundry items and other storage.
2. Mud Room Transformation
If your home has a mudroom off your garage or backyard, you can transform that area into a laundry room that will offer increased space and a place for family members to take off dirty clothes and shoes. This can reduce the dirt and debris brought indoors and provide a centralized space for laundry collection.
3. Add Natural Light
Many laundry rooms are tucked deep within the home with little to no natural light. If possible, adding windows to your laundry room will help bring increased light to the room and expand the space by bringing a sense of openness.
4. Kitchen/Laundry Combo
If you live in a condominium or own a townhome, your laundry room may be squished into a small area right off the kitchen. To add some space, consider taking down walls or doors that aren’t load-bearing to bring the two rooms together, and add cabinets that can be used for both kitchen and laundry storage.
5. Use Paint’s Power
Not sure if construction is the solution? Never underestimate the power of a fresh coat of bright paint to help bring much-needed life to your laundry room. With the right paint and trim work, you can help the room feel more expansive and enjoy the space even more.
4. Hide Unsightly Elements
Many homeowners seek a laundry room remodel due to their furnace, plumbing, or other large items being situated in the same room as their laundry. To help make the space feel more intentional, you can add walls or doors to block in these items while still giving room for access. Sometimes, out of sight is truly out of mind!
What To Look For In A Laundry Room Remodeling Team
While some homeowners will choose to renovate or remodel their laundry rooms on their own, projects with a bit more complexity or construction will require the aid of a team of contractors. If you are ready to put your home in the hands of a contractor team, here are some tips for finding the best candidates for your project:
1. Experience: Before you hire a remodeling contractor, ensure that they have the experience necessary to get the job done right the first time. Always look for project portfolios, reviews, and certifications for the team you are considering hiring.
2. Patience: The team you hire to help you remodel your laundry room shouldn’t jump the gun to knock out walls or pull up flooring. Ensure your team is patient to listen to your desires, consider your current room layout, and work with you to find the best solution.
3. Guarantees: A skilled and experienced remodeling company will offer guarantees for their work. Make sure you ask for any contract guarantees that are available to ensure you end up with the project outcome you want – or your money back.
