We love Jenny Komenda's trendy tips for redesigning laundry rooms. She makes a good point that the average family does 400 loads of laundry a year. That means that we make many trips to our laundry room! Personally, our laundry room is next to our garage and we have to walk through the laundry room when we come through the garage. We walk through several times a day and I finally realized that our laundry room needs spruced up so that it doesn't look so cluttered and disorganized. Thank goodness for some awesome trendy tips to redesign your laundry room by Jenny Komenda. (I've pinned some of her brilliant ideas!)
Here are some of my favorite tips:
Tip #1: Dealing with a dark, cave-like laundry room is a chore in and of itself! By taking off the doors on a few of your upper cabinets, you'll open up the space and create a place to store baskets. In this laundry room, we assigned baskets for every member of the house, which makes sorting a breeze!
Tip #2: Why not decoupage or paint insides of cabinets for a fun pop of color? It's a guaranteed smile each and every time you reach for your detergent.
Tip #3: Don't like the cabinets, floors and countertops in your laundry room? Every surface can be painted or resurfaced! For less than $30 in materials, the outdated linoleum, brick pavers and old, dark cabinets were updated in this laundry room with paint and with a concrete overlay product.
Tip #4: A rolling laundry butler can be your best friend, doing triple duty with a hanging bar, a rolling basket and a drying rack. It's the perfect choice for a laundry room with limited space that hasn't been updated in a few decades.
Tip #5: Don't neglect your laundry room walls! Hanging interesting art and mirrors will elevate your room and make it feel less utilitarian and more “homey”. Suddenly those 400 loads of laundry most of us will do this year might actually be enjoyable!
Tip #6: Use a slab of stone or a simple piece of painted MDF on top of the washer/dryer units to create a folding station and to prevent socks from slipping in between the appliances.
Once you check out those tips, I bet that you are thinking of a laundry room makeover! Personally, my husband and I bought our HE Washer and Dryer at Home Depot. We are really happy because it has been 5 years so far and they seem to be in perfect condition. We haven't had a single problem. I've used them to wash everything from day-to-day clothes to cloth diapers to heavy blankets. It's nice to have a good quality washer and dryer. Now is a good time to check out Maytag washers at Home Depot because they have a promotion where consumers receive a $100 gift card and a 3-month supply of Tide with purchase of a select Maytag washer. (I can smell the clean laundry with the fresh and trendy scent of Tide already...)
They also have an awesome giveaway where you could win a $5,000 laundry room redesign plus a Maytag washer/dryer, and a year's supply of Tide HE. Ten runners up will receive a one year supply of Tide HE. Isn't this a perfect prize for trendy moms?! Enter here.
We appreciate the complementary gift card and samples that we received. All opinions are honest and our own.
