3 Steps to Building the Perfect Laundry
Aside from the kitchen, the laundry is probably the second most productive area of the home. When designing a new home, it is essential to make sure your laundry is fit to handle all the dirty clothes you throw at it. Here are our 3 steps to building the perfect laundry.
Building the Perfect Laundry
Step 1: How do you use your current laundry?
Think about the way that you use your current laundry space. What do you store in there? Do you do the ironing and folding in there? The key to knowing what you need is knowing how you use the space.
This will help you determine how big you need the laundry to be, how much bench space you need and how much storage you need.
Step 2: What would you change about your current laundry?
Use the laundry you are using now and the ones you have used in the past to figure out what you don’t like. It may be the layout. Maybe the laundry is too big or too narrow. You might even just dislike the placement and style of all the storage areas.
This tells you what you need to avoid when building your new home. Make sure that you don’t take the same dislikes into your new home.
Step 3: Think about your appliances
Washing machines and dryers both come in front or top loader. This needs to be taken into account when building your cupboards. The placement of these items is important. It will determine where your taps go. If you need two washers and dryers, include all the extra space, plugs and plumbing.
The key to a perfect laundry is to ensure the space fits the purpose. Don’t be afraid to customise the laundry to make it perfect for your family. It’s definitely not something you’ll regret once you’ve moved into your new home.
