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 list will also help you prevent overspending with the remodeling. Aside from that, it will also help you in determining your use of the space in the room. Another important thing that you need to decide on is if you will be stacking the washer and dryer or installing them side by side. The space for your laundry room should always be maximized and the list will make sure that you will be able to do just that.
What’s your inspiration?
There are a lot of interior ideas that you can choose from. Look for laundry room colors that can actually compliment your home’s setup. There are a lot of laundry room paint ideas that you can check on magazine prints or even on the internet. If you are leaning to getting a farmhouse laundry room interior you can always opt to go for timeless paint colors. Having an airy traditional design concept can help you achieve the organizational levels of the room that you can always see in showrooms. A shiplap laundry room can also help hide the bulky machines that you might not want your guests to see. Design inspirations can function as your reference once you are planning the layout of your own room. You can look at spaces that are similar to yours so it will be easier to replicate.
