Laundries aren’t a far cry from kitchens in that they’re both practical working spaces at heart. At Rod’s Kitchens, we love helping our customers develop smart and practical laundry spaces that vary from petite European style laundries through to larger working spaces designed to keep up with large families and plenty of washing.
If you’re just now setting out on your journey to transform your laundry space, take a look here to get ideas and tips on creating a space you’ll love for years to come!
Storage, Storage, Storage
It goes without saying, but storage is an absolute necessity in your new laundry. And believe us when we say that you’re better looking at it than looking for it. Having plenty of storage space is how you ensure that you don’t get overrun with clothes, cleaning products, and everything else that finds its home in your new laundry.
We recommend a mixture of eye level and ground level storage in every laundry space. That way, you’ll be making the most of the space you do have and won’t have to worry too much about finding ways to keep everything organised.
Tones and colours
There is space to be creative in your laundry space, but you don’t particularly want to go exploring too wide a range of tones, particularly in smaller spaces like a laundry. Too many competing colours can leave the space feeling cramped and cluttered. Not what you want in a space designed to make life easier!
Space saving features
Something we love in laundries of all kinds is a solution that saves space! At the extreme, you’ll find European style laundries that fit neatly into cupboards in your kitchen. But you don’t have to go that far to save space and make the most of your laundry. Things like fold out ironing boards, or fold down drying racks that double as feature pieces can bring together a strong sense of practicality with a striking and unique look.
There is nothing so satisfying as finding ways to make the most of a space and solutions like these are an easy way to get the best out of your laundry. If you’ve got design ideas that you think might do something unique and practical for your laundry, talk to our designers about building out a solution like this.
No use having all your storage, space for your washing machine and your ironing board sorted out if you don’t have anywhere to hang any of it! We recommend finding a spot for a railing where you can hang up your freshly ironed shirts and anything else you don’t want left to the pile. Railings can be a striking aesthetic feature that ties together your laundry space, at only a minimal cost. Further, they can help you gain a whole new level of utility in your laundry space.
