Planning Your Laundry

Laundry Cupboard

LAUNDRY IN A CUPBOARD

If space is at a premium, a laundry cupboard is an alternative. The advantage with this kind of setup is that it ‘borrows’ space from the room it is connected to, rather than sacrificing floor space exclusively for the purpose of creating laundry. Typically, laundry cupboards incorporate either bi-fold doors or a sliding ‘pocket door’, which disappears into the wall cavity to further save space.

Consider installing a stackable washer and dryer or a combined machine that washes and dries to leave open space for adding vertical shelving, narrow storage towers, wall-mounted ironing boards, flip-down drying racks, and/or drop-down utility tables.

Electrical & Lighting Layout

ELECTRICAL & LIGHTING LAYOUT

When reviewing your electrical plan for the laundry interior space, it is good practice to identify the location of every plug and light switch. For example, determine the location of you light switches and ceiling light positions, look at how you would use the room; where would you be ironing.

Laundry interior space lighting is essential. Typically laundry interior spaces have little natural light. With lighting especially, it is important to assess your lighting plan once the framing is up and you see the actual spacing of the lighting. It is much easier to have ample light and control via a dimmer switch than try to add another light after the renovation.

You will need both task lighting and general room lighting, depending on the tasks you will carry out in your Laundry. LED strip lighting can be a great option under overhead cupboards.

Plan For Your Storage Requirements

PLAN FOR YOUR STORAGE REQUIREMENTS

At Style Plus we believe one of the best ways to make best use of your storage space is to incorporate storage into as much wall space as possible.

Wall mounted cabinets and open shelves can provide much of the storage you require. This can be achieved by custom interior cabinetry or off the shelf units. Using a custom made interior storage systems will maximise your available laundry interior space.

If your laundry room is a multifunctional space you can allocate one wall for laundry items, another to store household cleaners and another wall to use as a general storage cupboard space.

Installing a shelve system as far up the wall as you can is another storage option. However, have a folding step ladder behind the door or in the space between appliances and bring it out when you need to reach these high level items.

The area above your washer and dryer if they are placed side by side is another good option for storage. If you can, choose a front-loading washing machine and make sure both appliances have controls on the front rather than the top, so you can place a countertop over them to provide a space for folding or to store laundry soap and fabric softener. To make this space more attractive, store soaps in pretty glass jars or beverage dispensers.
