If you are lucky enough to have a dedicated laundry room in your home, then you really should be making the most of it and turning it into the most incredible space. Your family’s laundry room is a crucial element of your home because without it no one would have anything clean to wear and you would probably end up in a mess. The chances are that as a parent, you often have a lot of laundry that needs dealing with, and so spend a lot of time in your laundry room.
Your laundry room shouldn’t only be a functional space that is designed to make coping with your family’s laundry needs easier, it should also be a space that is somewhere that you enjoy spending time in. If you are in the laundry room a lot anyway, it may as well be a space that you love, right? The question is, of course, how can you create a laundry room that’s both functional and fabulous?

In need of a little laundry room design ideas and inspiration? Below are a few tips and suggestions to take note of and consider implementing in your own laundry room!
Incorporate a gorgeous sink
Every laundry room needs a sink. Don’t just opt for any old sink, consider incorporating a sink that makes a statement, such as a large, vintage basin or copper metal sink that packs a punch and adds a little rustic charm to the space. Don’t forget the taps – make sure that the tap design fits with the style of the rest of the room.
Add storage boxes
To avoid having laundry detergents, fabric softener, and any other essentials lying about on the sides cluttering up the place, adding storage boxes to your laundry room. You can either opt for stacking storage boxes or lidded storage boxes – it’s completely up to you what option you opt for.
Invest in hampers on wheels
To make moving your laundry around more easily, consider investing in some laundry hampers on wheels. You can either opt to pick modern laundry hampers or you can select their vintage counterparts and opt for a vintage-style wheeled laundry hamper. It depends on the style and design of the room itself.
Be smart about ironing
When it comes to the ironing setup, you might want to think about how you can use as little space as possible for your ironing board and other essentials. For this reason, you might find that tools like IRON-A-WAY, for instance, are an option worth looking into investing in for your laundry room.
Hang a drying rack
If your laundry room doesn’t have the space for a drying rack on the floor – or you don’t want to clutter the space up with one – consider hanging a drying rack instead. You can still use your tumble dryer but having a drying rack means that you can dry more items at a time, and for anything that’s not urgent you can hang up and allow to air dry, rather than using your tumble dryer and wasting energy.
Add stylish features
To make your laundry room truly exceptional, don’t forget to add in a few little style details. Think cute, quirky pieces of wall art – you can find some amazing designs and ideas on Etsy and Pinterest, vases of dried or faux flowers, and any other cute style details that you think would enhance your laundry room further.
There you have it, a few tips and suggestions for designing the most amazing laundry room.
