Laundry is one of those chores that never ends. I really think the clothes are multiplying when I have my back turned. Did you know that the average family does about 400 loads of laundry each year?!! WOW! I had no clue and there are only 3 of us in my family yet it seems like there is always a pile of laundry to do. Jenny Komenda, a decorator and blogger at The Little Green Notebook has shared some very helpful tips on how to create a more efficient space in your laundry room! Maytag and Tide wants to also help you stay out of the laundry room more and spend time with friends and family!
Jenny’s Cleaning Tips:
Tip #1: Dealing with a dark, cave-like laundry room is a chore in and of itself! By taking off the doors on a few of your upper cabinets, you’ll open up the space and create a place to store baskets. In this laundry room, we assigned baskets for every member of the house, which makes sorting a breeze!
Tip #2: Why not decoupage or paint insides of cabinets for a fun pop of color? It’s a guaranteed smile each and every time you reach for your detergent.
Tip #3: Don’t like the cabinets, floors and countertops in your laundry room? Every surface can be painted or resurfaced! For less than $30 in materials, the outdated linoleum, brick pavers and old, dark cabinets were updated in this laundry room with paint and with a concrete overlay product.
Tip #4: A rolling laundry butler can be your best friend, doing triple duty with a hanging bar, a rolling basket and a drying rack. It’s the perfect choice for a laundry room with limited space that hasn’t been updated in a few decades.
Tip #5: Don’t neglect your laundry room walls! Hanging interesting art and mirrors will elevate your room and make it feel less utilitarian and more “homey”. Suddenly those 400 loads of laundry most of us will do this year might actually be enjoyable!
Tip #6: Use a slab of stone or a simple piece of painted MDF on top of the washer/dryer units to create a folding station and to prevent socks from slipping in between the appliances.
