Over the past few blogs, we have talked about kitchen and bathroom cabinets. Now its time to take a look at Laundry room cabinets. A laundry room is often a fairly small room. Depending on the layout though, they might have several cabinets. Laundry room cabinets can play an important role in storage. They can also work to hide away things like clothing hampers and ironing boards. Do you want more counter space? A place to hang clothes as they dry? Maybe a sink and faucet? These are just a couple of things you should consider when remodeling your laundry room cabinets. Don’t forget about the flooring. With new cabinets, flooring and some organization, you can transform your laundry room into another one of the great rooms in your home.
Reface those Laundry Room Cabinets
Lets begin with the cabinets. Do they need to be refaced? Maybe you’d prefer a new door style or color. If that is the case, you are already in the right place. Using our extensive collection of step by step videos, you should be able to reface your laundry room cabinets with ease. There are plenty of color and door style options to choose from at Outside The Box. Conversions are also important to think about. Maybe you have more drawers than what is needed, convert them into a two door cabinet with pull out hampers. This keeps the hampers out of the way, which is great in a room with limited space. Removing a cabinet and creating a space for clothes to hang is also an option that could help. Once you have thought about the layout of your laundry room, it is time to consider some design choices.
Designing the space: Laundry Room Cabinets
You may be surprised, but there are plenty of things to think about when designing your laundry room cabinets. There is more to that space than cabinet color and door styles. Is there enough countertop space in your laundry room and if not, would you benefit by adding more? Do you need a sink? Many people like the idea of having a nice place to fold clothes inside the laundry room. One thing to consider is putting a counter top over the top of your washer and dryer. This helps to tuck your appliances into the cabinets, as if they belong there, instead of sticking out. Plus you get the folding space you may desire. Another important thing to consider is your flooring. Whatever you decide to do with your floor will play a huge part in the overall look of your laundry room.
Don’t Forget About the Floor!
Whether you choose to let loose and mix it up or stick with a traditional choice, flooring will play an important role in your remodel. You want to make sure your new flooring and cabinets go well with each other. It is important to have ideas of what you want as you start your project.
