6 Some Great Tips to Make Your Laundry Room More Efficient

When it comes to the interiors, most of the people enhance their bedroom, kitchen, living space, dining room and often neglect laundry room. A laundry room does not need to be decorated with expensive furniture pieces and decorative items, but it should not also be like a dark dungeon area.

Whether your laundry room is a big spacious area or a small closet, the area can easily be transformed into a pleasing and efficient place. If you give little time in organizing things in your laundry room, it is assured that your time for doing laundry will largely be reduced. Best of all, there is no need to spend a lot of money for laundry improvements. Few simply touches can easily make your laundry room more efficient.

Here are some great tips to help you make your laundry room more efficient –

1.The first and foremost aspect is placement of objects. Have a definite place for every equipment and product to be used in the cleaning process. Ensure that you have plenty of shelf space as they help you to stay organized. The products and items that need to be used daily should be placed within reach and less used items can be placed on the higher selves.

2.If you have a front loading washing machine, you can place the dryer on top of it and thus save a lot of space. Moreover, if you are planning a new purchase then try to invest in a washing cum dryer.

3.Laundry rooms are known to have limited floor space, but you need to have a lot of storage space. Try to install some hooks below or in the cabinets so that you can hang certain objects and do not land up blocking the shelf spaces. You can also utilize the space behind the door and use for it hanging clothes hanger, mesh bag or a laundry bag.

4.Try to install a large sink or an old bathtub in your laundry room. The dirty clothes can easily be soaked in the tub before you put into the machine, and you can even hand wash your delicate garments such as undergarments or sweaters.

5.A major requirement in the laundry room is an ironing table. If you do not have enough space for a table then you may install a foldable ironing board and have it mounted on a wall.

6.Give importance to the décor of the laundry room. Paint the walls with an interesting color palette and install uniform lightning throughout the area. The area can also be enhanced by hanging some pictures, placing few rugs and decorating the room with natural or artificial plants.
