For many homeowners, the laundry room is one of the most neglected rooms of the house. Yet when home buyers are touring a home, they’ll be looking long and hard at the laundry room to see if it fits their needs. It pays to invest in laundry room updates, and you may find that you enjoy doing laundry in your updated laundry room.
Paint the walls a bright and cheery color. If your basement or utility room doubles as a laundry room, soften unfinished walls with floor to ceiling draperies. Choose an acrylic fabric, which will resist moisture and mildew.
An area to fold laundry is a great addition to a laundry room. A counter height table makes a perfect folding station. If you have front-loading appliances, build the counter over your washer and dryer.
Place hooks on the wall or add a portable clothes rack so you can place clothes on hangers as they come out of the dryer.
Mount an extendable ironing board from the wall or hang it from a door.
Add storage units for laundry supplies.
