The Newest Laundry Room Trends of 2019
Depending on the amount of square footage you have in your laundry room, you can create a beautiful and functional space incorporating several of the newest design trends. Some 2019 trends include multiple sets of machines—perfect for large families—specialized storage, space-saving solutions, and efficient drying devices.
Custom Decluttering Solutions and Dedicated Spaces
Custom cabinetry has made its way into the laundry room with amazing organizational details, like pull-out ironing boards, tilt-out hampers, drying drawers, and nooks designed to hold laundry baskets. Some homeowners choose to have a pantry located in the laundry room with plenty of storage for nonperishable foods and kitchen gadgets currently cluttering up kitchen cabinets and countertops. There are vertical roll-out cabinets with space to hang brooms, mops, and dusters, as well as plentiful storage for cleaning and laundry products.
Folding counters and folding tables are a must. After all, isn’t getting the laundry folded and put away the hardest part of the process? How many times have you carried a basket of clean laundry around the entire house looking for a clear, low-traffic, or pet free, area to fold it?
Beside the washer and dryer is also a perfect location for a sewing table. Drawers and cabinetry can neatly store all your sewing supplies, craft supplies, or wrapping supplies depending on your needs for the space.
Save Precious Resources and Money: Using the Latest Efficient Drying Tools
Saving energy is imperative in these times, not only for environmental purposes, but for our wallets. Many clothes require line drying or laying flat to dry. Stand-alone drying racks are unsightly, leaving your laundry in plain view and taking up premium space.
If you own delicate pieces of clothing and find yourself running out of space, a drying closet, or tilt-out drying rack may be the best space saving, electricity free option for you. Besides saving money by using the dryer less often, air-drying clothes reduces wear and tear and saves money on costly replacements.
Looks are Everything: Even in Hidden Spaces
Even though the laundry room is essentially a private space, meaning most of the time, guests do not spend much time there, homeowners are opting for high end, colorful finishes in the newest laundry rooms. Quartz countertops, beautiful cabinetry, and bold colors are becoming more of the norm when homeowners remodel these utilitarian spaces. After all, we spend a significant amount of time washing our clothes. Why not make the most of a space that marries both form and function?
