The basics of laundry room design
If you’re creating a new area or updating an existing one, our designers will walk you through the process of what is needed to create a modern but functional laundry room design. While collaborating with you, we keep the following in mind:
- Design based on activity
Besides doing the laundry, what else are you planning on doing in the room? Sorting and folding? If so, then perhaps you want to add in some work surfaces to help facilitate this. Even for small laundry room designs, we’ll find a way to make use of shelves and small workspace to maximise efficiency.
- Room measurements
You need to consider the size of the washer and dryer, as well as the location of your existing water and waste services and work the room measurements around this. Washers and dryers are normally around 600mm wide. For loading and unloading, allow up to 600mm in front of a washer and dryer. That way, you’ll have room to walk around them without bumping into them.
- Wet & dry zone
Try thinking in terms of wet and dry zones to make the laundry room more efficient. Place the laundry sink and washing machine side by side to streamline your plumbing and keep wet tasks together. You might want to reserve space for an ironing board (stand-alone or pull-out) close to the clothing rod to facilitate quick touch-ups.
Working with small laundry rooms
No matter the size, we have laundry renovation ideas that will make a small space seem larger. Our solutions are simple; our designers will recommend you furnish wisely and space consciously (opt for cabinets and try investing in racks and hangers). You should also consider investing in a stackable washer and dryer or an all-in-one machine that washes and dries.
