We’ve been doing a lot of laundry room remodels lately, and it is such a fun space to re-imagine. Laundry rooms today are not the same small closeted space they used to be. Some laundry rooms are bigger than the kitchen! And a laundry room is no longer just for laundry – we’ve seen them be used as offices, exercise rooms, craft rooms, mud rooms, pet rooms, and so much more. Here are some of our favorite trends.
Double-Duty Laundry Rooms
The laundry room is already a place where you get things clean, so why not add a dog washing station? A built-in bench, stall, and sprayer in a tiled area can give you a place to tend to the pooch while the laundry tumbles dry.
Multipurpose Craft Room
With some bright lighting and a dedicated workspace, you can have your laundry room double as a craft space. Whether you put together models, do 1,000-piece puzzles, paint pieces of art, or scrapbook, the laundry room is a perfect place to add a craft area.
Laundry Room – Mud Room Combo
Where better to rid yourself of muddy boots and clothes than the laundry room? Whether you bring your laundry up out of the basement to the light of day and an existing mud room or create a space with its own entrance, this is a great use of the space.
Laundry rooms have so much potential. We just finished this laundry room in Sammamish, transforming it into a multi-purpose room with laundry, a desk area, and a designated space for the kitty. Designs by Shannon Boyle and Vawn Greany.
No matter how you transform your laundry room, one thing is clear: Gone are the days of traipsing down to the scary basement and doing laundry in the dark. Laundry rooms today are full of light and space and fulfill multiple functions in the home.
