The laundry room is an area of the house where clothes are being washed and dried but this does not mean that you have to keep it drab or uninteresting. An old farmhouse laundry room might just look like how most laundry rooms appeared before but laundry rooms nowadays are becoming more than a place for clothes. They are also being designed with great looking interiors that can capture a serene feeling.

Normally installed with an automatic washing machine and clothes dryer, this room would also have other washing items like basin, ironing board and cabinets for storage of soiled clothes and detergent soaps. The typical locations for laundry rooms are basements but some modern houses situate this room somewhere near the kitchen or even on the second floor near the bedrooms for easier access.

How to Upgrade Your Farmhouse Laundry Room

Before you start the process, know the reason behind this upgrade. Do you already have the space and want to re-design it or do you need to start from scratch? If it is the latter, secure the area first so that you can easily follow the following steps.

Know the activities

Your laundry room’s purpose will determine all the activities that will be done inside the room. It will help you decide on what furniture and appliances to dedicate spaces to. This will also help you determine the amount of storage that you need to allocate for the counters, cabinets and hampers for soiled clothes. Having a farmhouse utility sink in your laundry area might sound appealing but you need to understand how it will be used once the room remodeling is done.

Make a list of what goes in

Complete your list of must haves. Knowing the activities that will happen in your laundry area will help you with the list of items that need to go in there. Shelves, cabinets for storage, laundry folding station, gas lines, vents, additional outlets, the list will go on if you will not establish it in advance. This
