Be smart about your appliance choices. Install a stackable washer and dryer, or opt for a front loading combo so that you can use that valuable real estate on top to store supplies, or to fold, organize and sort your laundry.
Get creative about storage. Install high-up shelves, hideaway drawers and keep a couple of moveable (preferably roll-able and collapsible) clothing racks around for drying purposes if you don’t want to install drying racks. If you have extra wall space, consider mounting light baskets that can serve decorative purposes as well.
Choose a neutral colour pallet. You can’t go wrong with an off-white or pale grey palette. Keep your design simple and patterning to a low to avoid the illusion of clutter. For a pop of colour, consider an accent wall done with paint or even wallpaper. Keep your colours light to create the illusion of a bigger space.
Embrace that natural light. If you are lucky enough to have windows in your laundry room, keep them unobstructed with minimal window treatments. If not, install extra lighting. Just because your laundry room is the size of a closet, doesn’t mean it has to look like one!
