Let’s face it: many homes do not have the luxury of a large laundry space. Beyond having sufficient room to wash loads of clothes, many customers would also love a little more room for cleaning-related storage. So, how do you maximise the space in a small laundry – both in functional terms for washing, drying and even ironing, as well as storage and style?
Like many things in the world of interiors, the difference is in the design. A good designer can maximise the space you have, with the best layout and storage inclusions that you may not have thought about before.
To give you an idea of how you can transform your laundry space, here’s a few tips from our Kinsman design experts on making the most of a small laundry.
Place your appliances side by side
In a renovation, the position of your washer and dryer is often determined by the location of the existing plumbing, unless you plan on spending the time and money to move it. So it’s best to start with deciding on the placement of the appliances – and according to our designers, the best configuration is often to have them side by side rather than stacked. This means that you can then place a bench over the top of them, creating a work space with a decent length.
