As homeowners, we all probably spend far more time doing laundry than we would like. But by organizing the laundry room in your Oakville home, you can help make your laundry area more efficient – which will hopefully make doing laundry less of a chore and perhaps even more enjoyable. 

Here’s are a few ideas for your laundry room: 

Improve your Laundry Room’s Storage

Sometimes homes do not have a lot of storage space – anywhere! If you’re thinking about adding cabinets to the laundry room, why not add in as many as you can to maximize the amount of storage space you have.  At Trends Wood Finishing, we can install custom, semi-custom or cabinets you’ve bought off of Kijiji in your laundry room.  If you are purchasing custom cabinets for your kitchen, we can move your old cabinets into your laundry room as well.

By adding in floor to ceiling, pantry style cabinets, you have a place for storing your cleaning appliances and products (like the vacuum, bottles of bleach, laundry detergent and ironing board) when you aren’t using them. The cabinets in the laundry room allow you to store whatever you may not have room for elsewhere in the house. 

Make it a Multi-Use Room

If you’re a little short on space in other areas of your home, maybe you could make the laundry room a multi-purpose room. Depending on where it sits in your home, it could double as a mudroom, craft area or even exercise room.

Many Oakville homeowners are making the best use of their space by making every part of the home more functional. Take a look at how your family uses your home and spaces every day, and that will give you an idea as to what you need more of and what is working well. 

Transform Your Laundry Room

Laundry rooms are usually set up to be functional, and its aesthetics tend to be forgotten. This doesn’t have to be the case! Take some time to pick a nice colour for the room, and choose finishes you like. You spend a lot of time in this room, so why not make it look attractive?

You can also choose to have a backsplash set up behind your washer and dryer so that it has a finished and polished look. 

If you already have cabinets in your laundry room, but they are beat up or don’t fit in aesthetic wise – consider Cabinet Refacing or Cabinet Refinishing to save money on remodelling costs.
