Let’s talk about laundry! If you’re anything like me, you have a lot of it. Like, a lot. I think it may be one of the most polarizing household chore: People either love it or hate it!
I’m a firm believer in creating beautiful, functional laundry rooms. I’ve shared a bit about my laundry/mudroom (here) in the past and heard lots about how you wish you had an organized laundry room. Good news: You can. No matter whether you have a spacious room or a tiny closet, you can turn your laundry space into a space you love and enjoy using.
My first tip for creating a fresh, comfortable laundry room? Get organized! I love using baskets, crates and mason jars to store everything from dryer balls to stain removers and detergent. Find a spot or “home” for everything. You could consider installing floating shelves to keep everything within reach or use baskets to make sure all your products stay put in your cupboards. Install hooks, a rod or rack to make air drying easy. Add what you need to make your space functional without increasing clutter.
Second, make your space look pretty! Frame and hang/lean a cute print. Tuck clothespins into a jar and display it on a shelf. Splurge on a cute garbage can with a lid to keep everything contained. Consider transferring your powdered detergent into a tin that fits with your decor if you don’t like the container it comes in. Invest in a laundry basket (or two) with wheels and dividers to make sorting a breeze. No matter the size of your space, add something you love. Because, when you have to throw a load of wet bedsheets into the wash in the middle of the night — any parents with me? — you’ll want something to make you smile.
Finally, and most obviously, you need a top-notch washer and dryer. Your laundry space could be gorgeous, but it won’t matter much if you don’t have appliances that work well. GE’s Designer Line combines sleek, modern design with the reliable, energy-efficient technology that cleans and dries your clothes well. Their Circuclean™ and Deep Fill technology ensure everything gets a good deep clean, which gives such peace of mind. There’s nothing worse than having to toss something back into the laundry right after it’s been washed!
