3 Ways To Make Your Laundry Room More Inviting
Laundry rooms have become common renovations. Many have renovated these spaces to become more inviting and spacious, and to transform them from barely functional and unexciting, to a useful, stylish room in the house. The following ideas will give you inspiration on how easy it is to make more out of your laundry room with just a few simple steps, so you can enjoy your laundry room and embrace its style and character.
1. Add Backsplash
Adding a backsplash behind your washer and dryer can make the room instantly more stylish. There are countless options of patterns, colors and textures to choose from to embrace your own personality and give the space a whole new atmosphere. Not only is there the option to choose your tile design, but grout also comes in various colors. You can decide if you would like to add a contrasting grout color, or a color that is in the same color palette as your tile. Check out our Color Selector Tool to find out which design style is right for you. The current trend is contrasting grout and tile designs as that adds another layer of design and personality to your room. It has also become more common to match the tile designs of the bathroom, kitchen and laundry room to add consistency within your home. Whenever you are ready to install your backsplash, make sure to check out our Backsplash Installation Guides before you start your installation project.
2. Pick Your Flooring
The flooring under your washer and dryer needs to have a few attributes. It should be stain resistant, stand up to moisture and be highly durable.
Vinyl flooring comes in a range of designs, can provide a sophisticated look and is an inexpensive option that is easy-to-install and maintain. Most vinyl floors require a full spread of adhesive such as the TEC® Skill Set™ Stick-N-Stay Adhesive.
Tile, such as ceramic tile, comes in various colors, sizes, shapes and patterns. It is highly durable, stain resistant and impervious to moisture. When installing tile, make sure to prepare the substrate properly and use the right primer, self-leveling underlayment, mortar and grout and use our Tile Installation Guide for instruction on how to successfully install your tile.
3. Create Additional Storage
The space in most laundry rooms is limited and extra space is always desirable. There are various options to help you make the most out of your small space without compromising the design.
Shelving can improve organization and maximize your space, while even providing a stylish look. Try colored shelves and even Preformed Components that allow you to create extra space on your walls.
Organizational baskets and boxes come in a number of different sizes, shapes, designs and materials. Funky and colorful baskets can add a playful element to your space.
Drying racks, installed on the wall or even on top of your washer and dryer, are a great solution to save space and to be more practical when it comes to drying your delicate clothes.
