One common home remodeling project is to transform an area or a spare room into a laundry room. There are many ways you can make the most of this space, and the features you want to include in this room will determine the size of the remodeling project. However, if you’re unsure about how to get started, these ideas can help you get a better idea of how the finished laundry room will look.

How to Create a Spacious Laundry Room

1. Take a Cue From the Kitchen

When you walk into the kitchen, you’ll probably first notice the counter space. You can bring this idea into the new laundry room and if the contractor is also remodeling the kitchen, you may be able to save money on the materials. You can set up a counter in the laundry room without eliminating space if you position them over the laundry and washing machines. The countertops can be used as storage space or as a place to fold your freshly washed clothes.

2. Add a Sink

You might need running water to clean up a spill or treat a stain. Installing a sink as a part of this home remodeling project can make the laundry room more self-sustaining. A sink with a deeper basin will give you the extra room you’ll need for cleanup projects.

3. Create a Pet Nook 

Home RemodelingSince your dog or cat probably follows you, setting aside a corner for them will keep them from getting underfoot. Alternatively, if you’re building a home addition to accommodate the laundry room, why not make it a little larger to include the pet’s space? You can do something simple, such as adding a bed with food and water bowls, or build something more elaborate. For instance, if you build a cage with door, you can secure the pet when necessary, while also giving them a secure area of their own.

4. Build More Shelves

Including more shelving in the laundry room can help you add space. Shelves can be used to hold detergent, bleach, and other laundry supplies, so you can avoid a clutter in your work areas. You can also add flowers, photos, and other decor that will help liven up the room. Instead of focusing solely on functionality, bringing a sense of style into the room will help make doing laundry a more enjoyable experience.
