While you might not consider your laundry room an important space, the truth is that laundry rooms can make or break the efficiency of your home! With a well-designed laundry room, you can easily take care of all laundry-related tasks, store items and even create a unique space that will have your guests and family members using it frequently. Here are some of the best laundry room cabinet ideas for your home.
Hide away hampers. Hampers are great for organizing and sorting out laundry, but they can be a bit of an eyesore. And, let’s not forget that dirty laundry develops a smell over time. Keep your hampers hidden by installing custom-sized cabinets. Put the hampers in the cabinets so that your family can simply pull the drawer out and place their dirty clothes in the hamper that corresponds with their type of dirty laundry. Examples include whites, colors, delicates and linens. It’s a great solution that also helps to keep your space organized. No one will ever know where your dirty clothes are.
Add cabinets under your sink. Hide away all the plumbing from your sink by using cabinets. It’s perfect for the laundry room that also doubles as a mudroom. Plus, you can hide away any additional cleaning products or other items under the sink, especially if you don’t have that much cabinet space. If you don’t already have a sink in your laundry room, put it at the top of your list. Having a sink is beneficial for hand washing items, pre-treating stains and washing shoes or other hard-to-wash items.
Add some open shelving. You don’t have to hide all your items behind cabinets! A good laundry room cabinet layout includes some open shelving. This way, you can easily access your most-used items, such as detergent and softener. Get creative with your storage solutions for these products so that they blend in with your design aesthetic. Whether you use a candy jar for your detergent tabs or put a stack of to-go stain sticks in a metal container, open shelving is great for keeping your most-used items within arm’s reach.
Don’t neglect the corners. Did you know you can use the corners in your laundry room? That’s right! Take advantage of the corner space in your laundry room with a laundry room corner cabinet. It’s a great way to maximize the storage space in your laundry room, especially if you have a smaller laundry room. Corner shelving allows you to utilize space that people normally avoid or think they are unable to use.
Fill in spaces. While some space in your laundry room is necessary to keep it from feeling crowded, it’s important to fill some of the spaces in. Take the space between your washer and dryer, for example. Have you ever thought about getting a set of cabinets to put there? It’s a great place to store dryer sheets, detergent tabs, stain treatment or anything else that will fit in that space.
Choose a bold color. While not necessarily everyone’s cup of tea, a bold color for your laundry room cabinets is a fun design choice. If a full set of bright cabinets is too much for you, but you still want an interesting color combination, consider doing your upper cabinets white or brown and then choosing a bolder color for your lower cabinets, such as yellow or green. We proudly offer cabinet samples for all our customers, so you can choose the cabinets you feel will work best in your space! That way, you can see which textures and shades fit your design style and also will look best in your laundry room.
Add a space for your pet. In your design, consider adding a small cut-out for your pet. Put their bed, food and water dishes or even some toys for them to use in the cut-out space. This gives them a place to hang out while you do laundry, or it gives them a space that’s their own to use when no one else is around. Since you probably only use your laundry room once or twice a week, your pet will view the space as their sanctuary! It’s a unique laundry room design feature that your guests will love.
Your laundry room doesn’t have to be boring. With some simple cabinet design tricks, you can easily create a dream laundry room that’s efficient and has style.
