Basement Laundry Room Design & Mud Room Design
Laundry Rooms and Mud Rooms
Do you have usable space in your basement you are not taking advantage of? Extra basement space is perfect for a laundry room or mud room. Or maybe you are considering adding a laundry room or mud room to your main floor – As long as the same design principles are used, laundry rooms and mud rooms are great no matter where they are.
Laundry Room Design: Simple to Elaborate
Your laundry room should be both easy to access and easy to use. Designating hampers for dirty clothes as well as bins and shelves for detergents and cleaners helps organize your laundry room. Allocating storage space and assigning a work area increases the utility of your laundry room. In terms of appearance, simply painting walls and installing new lighting can go a long way in enhancing your laundry room design.
More extensive remodeling may include installing a drywall ceiling, new cabinetry and countertops. Installing new baseboards, trim and flooring help create a pleasant atmosphere for your laundry room or mud room. You may even consider adding a laundry chute or having the laundry room relocated from the basement to the main level for convenience.
Optimize Space and Increase Utility in Your Laundry Room Design
Determine the best way to allocate space in your laundry or mud room design. You may consider stacking your washer and dryer or placing a pedestal underneath your washer and dryer to eliminate bending over. Consider countertop installation above your washer and dryer to provide a work space for sorting and folding laundry.
Hard surface flooring, such as ceramic tile or vinyl, is ideal in mud or laundry room design since it allows for easier cleaning. If not already installed, consider adding a sink in your laundry room or mud room. Whether washing your hands after doing your laundry or rinsing off paint brushes from your own home remodeling project, sinks can be helpful.
Sometimes the smaller touches really do make the biggest difference in laundry room design. Hanging racks for coats and cubbies for shoes keep your laundry room or mud room organized and clutter-free. For additional work space, fold-out tables are great options. Laundry rooms and mud rooms are most useful when they are organized.
Enhance the Atmosphere with a Unique Laundry Room Design
Since laundry rooms and mud rooms are usually small spaces, painting with a brighter color can make the room feel larger, while also providing a more pleasant atmosphere. Overhead lights brighten the room and create a more pleasing and safe work environment. For unfinished laundry rooms and mud rooms, consider covering exposed framework and insulation with drywall.
Freshly-painted baseboards with a matching mantel help make your laundry room or mud room more personable. Pictures and decorations make laundry rooms and mud rooms inviting, without interfering with work space. If possible, you may want to install a window so you can enjoy natural light and a view of your yard.
