There is no need to choose between storage and style in your laundry room. In fact, there are plenty of chic and snazzy ways to organize this room, so that it becomes both functional and fashionable. Keep reading to learn our tips for choosing cabinets for the laundry room, and our best ideas for stylish storage solutions.
Add crown molding to give your laundry room cabinetry a boost.
Cabinets provide sleek storage solutions in the laundry room, but when installed on their own, they might lack luster. If this is the case, trim and crown molding can really add a wow factor to your laundry room cabinetry. When choosing cabinets from The RTA Store, select your style and then click “Cabinet Accessories” to view the molding options for that style.
Convenient base cabinets provide storage for everyday items.
Adding a few base cabinets beside or between your washer and dryer can make laundry time a lot easier. Use this space to store everyday items that you are always reaching for — like laundry detergent and dryer sheets. The addition of base cabinets will not only lessen your workload, but will also fill in floor space for a more cohesive look than lone appliances.
Take advantage of your weird floor plan.
Not all laundry rooms are spacious, square rooms. Some are built in a nook next to the kitchen, or seem like an afterthought in your home’s design. Rather than orchestrate a full demo, try working with what you have. That kitchen laundry room can actually be cute with some matching cabinets or sweet French doors. And if it’s a zigzag floor plan you’re fighting, embrace the weird twists and turns by using corners for storage and extra countertop space.
Cabinets aren’t just for shelves.
Let’s rethink what should be behind cabinet doors. Instead of your standard shelves, use one of your wall cabinets to keep a foldout ironing board, hamper, or drying rack. These kinds of hacks can change the game in smaller laundry rooms. If you’re someone that currently has a drying rack, hamper, or ironing board open in your bedroom, you’ll also appreciate keeping all laundry accessories in the laundry room.
If you have the square footage, splurge on the details.
At its foundation, a laundry room might not seem that exciting — but if you have some extra room to play with, you can really amp things up! So where should you start? One of our favorite additions is a hanging rod between wall cabinets, because it adds charm and makes your workflow more seamless. We also love keeping colorful laundry baskets on open shelves to easily sort items, and add some bright décor. If you can spare some countertop space, line up glass containers filled with your different cleaning solutions. Not only does this give off clean, minimalist vibe, but if you use multiple detergents, it simplifies laundry time as well.
