Consider A Dedicated Laundry Room In Your House
Building a home provides numerous benefits, but at the top of many people’s lists is the ability to choose the new house designs features — to have everything they wanted for a comfortable lifestyle.
For many, this includes a large, dedicated laundry room. The modern laundry room has evolved from a simple closet area that fits a washer and dryer, or a spot in the garage or basement, to a full room that addresses all laundry needs.
Here are some reasons why dedicated laundry room solutions are ideal for your newly built home.
Laundry Rooms Provide Needed Storage
One problem with stuffing the washer and dryer into a big closet is storage. When the laundry area has room for appliances only, where do you keep related supplies? When you build a home with a dedicated laundry space, you add ample storage and extra space. With the right laundry room storage solution, you not only can store your laundry supplies in the same area, but also clothing, pet supplies, outdoor toys and more. Furthermore, you can be more organized with space for sorting, folding and hanging laundry.
Dedicated Laundry Spaces Double As Utility Rooms
A laundry room doesn’t need to be related only to laundry tasks. It also can serve as a utility room or a mudroom, for example. Consider a laundry room design that includes a utility sink, countertop, coat rack and more! Consider placement near a back door so kids can wipe their feet or remove dirty shoes before entering the home. It’s also a good area to clean pets that got dirty outside.
