Proper layout of any room is necessary to utilize the space at its maximum point, be it kitchen or the laundry area. Laying out a utilitarian design for kitchen, bedroom, or even living room is easy but for a utility area, it’s a bit of tough work.
The laundry room is usually located behind or near the kitchen and garage. The arrangement is done in a way that you can approach the laundry area quickly and all the noise, smell, and messy ambiance don’t indulge with the entire house.
No matter where the utility room is, here in this blog we have mentioned a few laundry room layouts which will make the space, clean and organized. Don’t worry if you don’t have enough space in the utility room, we will help you make it.
Be it a small area or the large room assigned to do all the laundry work, we have covered layout and decor ideas for both. Let’s get to work.
Large Laundry Room Layout Ideas
Functional Laundry Area
Go for the functional laundry area by installing a hanging rod, washbasin, ironing table, etc. For the aesthetic look, go for wooden floor, white-washed cupboards, and grey color.
Open shelving is the best option to keep things organized and decluttered. Here in this laundry room, the designer has kept one functional open-shelved cupboard where the washing is placed on the platform, and machines are kept side by side with the middle partition where towels are kept.
If not open shelving, you can always go for cabinets. They are easy to maintain, make your room look more channelized. Here the designer has arranged cabinets on one side. This closet holds all the necessary laundry items, from washer and dryer to hanging rods.
Spacious Laundry Room Layout
This one is a utility as well as a laundry area, the room is kept spacious to do all the chores. Here the owner hasn’t even kept an ironing table or hanging rod. The plain and sleek aesthetic will make you stay there for a longer time.
Add Pop Color
To make the room look more attractive you can always add color to it, bright colors tend to bring a happy mood. Here in this space, the designer has added a blue color with metallic black doorknobs. To complement the blue pop, a white aesthetic is added.
