Why Consider Renovating The Laundry?
You spend a lot of time in the laundry, but that area of the house can often be an afterthought. It’s common for laundry rooms to be tucked away in a dingy dark part of the house, or in a small awkward corner.
Our team at Absolute Bathroom Renovations makes sure your laundry renovation Ballarat is carefully planned for maximum use of space.
A well laid out room makes the process of doing laundry easy and efficient. Since laundry rooms tend to be small, they need to be practical and maximize space and workflow. Many people also use their laundry rooms as storage spaces, so it’s a good idea to think about the other functions that your room can serve.

Renovating your laundry room can allow you to use the space more creatively and make the space feel more comfortable. Read on for tips about what to consider when renovating your space.
Main Priorities When Renovating Your Laundry
Since laundry rooms tend to be small, it’s a good idea to include lots of storage to make the room as functional as possible. Shelving units can be installed on the walls to help maximize space and avoid clutter.
Also think about adding a counter or table near your dryer to allow for easy sorting and folding. If you have front loader machines, you can even create a work surface right on top of the washer and dryer.
Another way to improve the functionality of the space is to include drying racks. Use the space up above your washing machine and dryer to install racks. Air drying your clothes in winter will save money and power, and can help preserve your delicate pieces of clothing.
Lastly, consider a folding ironing board which can be flattened and packed away when not in use.
Wherever you decide to put your laundry room, make sure that you have good ventilation to the outside. Laundries generate a lot of heat and moisture, so you need adequate ventilation to reduce moisture, decrease lint build-up and reduce the risk of dryer fires.
Since you’re working with a small space, it’s important to plan out the area to make sure that everything will fit properly. One important thing to make sure of is that there’s enough space in front of the machines to empty and fill them. There should also be room to comfortably fit a hamper or laundry basket.
Make sure to also check that there is enough clearance space to allow doors to open easily. If your machines are front loading, they shouldn’t open the same way — this will cause the doors to bump into each other when they’re both open. Instead, you want the doors to open in opposite directions so that you can easily transfer clothing from the washer to the dryer.
It’s a good idea to install light fixtures that allow for both general and task lighting. Overhead lighting systems like LED lights will light up the whole space. It’s also a good idea to install spot lights and pendants to light up smaller work areas, which will help with tasks like sewing and ironing.
Flooring is another important thing to consider for laundry room renovations. In case of leaking or flooding, you want something that will withstand water damage.
Ceramic, porcelain or vinyl are all good choices for laundry rooms. Tile flooring is a popular choice as it’s waterproof and easy to clean.
For the best protection against floods, think about installing a floor drain. This may require you to change your plumbing and it is not possible in every space, but it is worth looking into whether it is possible.
