Laundries are, by nature, one of the most hard-working spaces in your home. But that doesn’t mean they need to be a plain or boring room! Historically, laundries were considered an afterthought in the design process, mainly because there wasn’t a wide variety of hardwearing materials that were also beautiful and affordable.
Nowadays, with so many gorgeous materials and smart solutions to choose from, a laundry renovation can be as exciting as a kitchen or a bathroom renovation. With stylish and calm laundries becoming the norm, an updated laundry to match your new bathroom or kitchen has become a must-have for homeowners.
If you’re adding a laundry to your renovation plans to up the value to your home, then this blog is for you. We’ve asked our award-winning Interior Designers for their top laundry renovation recommendations, so you can start planning a laundry you will actually want to spend time in!
Keep it simple. Laundries are usually small spaces and cramming too much can make the room feel uncomfortable. That’s why it’s so important that, when maximising every inch of space for functionality and storage, you do it the smarter way. Your cabinetry will define how you use your laundry, so getting it right from the get-go is an essential step in your laundry renovation.
Gone are the days when laundries had to feature uninspiring (and ugly!) benchtops for the sake of durability. Now you can choose from a huge range of durable and beautiful options to make your hard-working laundry look dreamy.
Carefully consider the size of the sink. What are you going to use the sink for? Soaking clothes, plant watering, dog washing?
With laundries being relatively small spaces, choosing beautiful tiles won’t break the bank. A laundry renovation is a perfect opportunity to get creative, have a bit of fun by selecting something that sparks joy in you, and make a statement with your choice of tiles.
If space and budget allow for it, there are many clever inclusions to consider that will go a long way to achieving a functional laundry design. Here are some of our favourites:
