Laundry Room Cabinet Recent Projects
Because it is not always a front-and-center space, the laundry room all too often gets overlooked. (Insert your own comment about airing dirty laundry.) However, that doesn’t mean your laundry room (and your laundry room cabinets) can’t be beautiful as well as functional, especially because these spaces often double as a storage space or a mud room.
Looking for the perfect laundry room cabinets? Look no further. Our team of professionals is always happy to consult about ideas for designing and utilizing the space available.
What Makes Laundry Rooms Tricky?
Design-wise, laundry rooms can pose a bit of a challenge. They do not always have a lot of storage space, and the super-sized appliances that call the room home don’t help the situation. How will a bank of laundry room cabinets work with your washing machine and dryer? If you’re not careful, they can make smaller spaces feel cluttered. It is also vital that your laundry room cabinets account for the proper drainage necessary for your appliances.
Even with these considerations, it is possible to create a laundry room that you love. Our experts are happy to help you create the perfect space for you.
The Perfect Design
Though the laundry room can often default to a forgotten or under-utilized space, it doesn’t have to be a boring storage space for keeping the towels. You have a lot of freedom in how you utilize your laundry room cabinets. You may like the appearance of open cabinets or prefer cabinet doors to conceal extra towels, soaps, or other cleaning supplies. Open cabinets make supplies more readily accessible, but run the risk of making smaller laundry rooms feel cluttered.
If you’ve done any design research for your laundry room, you know the process can be overwhelming. It is possible to have too many good ideas! Working with our Wasatch Custom Cabinets team can help. Start with the basics. Do you want to have a more traditional room, or are you looking to add some class or spice to your laundry room? We can help you find a good solution to match your laundry room cabinets with the rest of the room’s design and decor.
While laundry room cabinets come in a wide range of materials, price ranges, and capabilities (including the choice between permanent full-scale systems and more mobile solutions), you need to choose cabinets that will serve you for a long time. If is important to choose materials for your cabinets that will help them to last with moderate to excessive use.
Because there is so much activity happening in your laundry room at counter level or below, wall cabinets are often a very helpful solution. They utilize the negative space above the washer and dryer so that real estate isn’t wasted. Wall cabinets are also a safe choice in case the unthinkable (flooding from the washing machine) happens. They will not be exposed to excess water or block any floor drains.
There are two big considerations when installing hanging laundry room cabinets: accessibility and weight. Adding a cabinet above a washing machine that can only be accessed with a step ladder may be a source of frustration more than a help. If you can’t reach your wall cabinet over your appliances, consider other options. It is also critical to consider the weight restrictions of any wall cabinets you install. You do not want your cabinet to come crashing down on your washing machine.
If you have the space for them, base cabinets which run from floor to ceiling can add a lot of storage space in your laundry room. They can also give the room a clean and streamlined appearance if the room can accommodate them.
