A laundry is primarily a functional room, but when you do your laundry renovation, that doesn’t mean you can’t add a touch of luxe.
At Unique Design in Brisbane we bring practicality, functionality, and creativity together to bring you a laundry renovation with pizzazz.
Yes, a laundry room with pizzazz! No matter what size your laundry is we have a laundry renovation idea that will make the most of your space and add that extra something.
We can design a laundry renovation for any size
The laundry renovation you choose will depend on how much space you have, but the most important thing in a laundry renovation is functionality. If you have a growing family, you’ll soon realise the importance of a fully functioning and efficient laundry space.
A laundry checklist:
- Firstly, the laundry needs to be waterproofed since it is a wet area.
- Front or top loader machine, or a washer/dryer all in one
- Deep sink
- Bench space
- Indoor clothesline storage
- Ironing board storage
Where possible, outdoor access is always handy when it comes to the laundry, and particularly easy access to the clothesline.
With the washer and dryer running the laundry can become quite humid; there needs to be good ventilation to deal with the excess moisture.
At Unique Design we spend time planning your laundry renovation so we can fully maximise the space, especially if space is limited. We factor in appliances, sink, benchtop space, storage, and ironing board station if room permits.
Let’s face it, the laundry is home to more than just the laundry, we store chemicals, pet food, and of course the dirty washing, so factoring clever storage solutions is a great way to utilise space. Overhead storage is great for families with young children especially so all chemicals can be safely stowed out of reach. Vertical sliding organisers are a great way to maximise storage whilst also providing easy access to products at stored at the back.
Open shelf space storage is being popular, not only does it provide extra storage, they look good too.
If you have the room in the laundry an ironing station is a great solution for getting the odd the item ironed or a full load.
Not many people relish the thought of doing the laundry, so why not add that touch of luxe to your laundry renovation. If there is room add a seated bench for fold and sorting; add some feature tiles for your splash backs, some plants and nice laundry containers, and make it a place you want to be in.
Laundries and bathroom renovations combined
Smaller laundries in particular will benefit from lighter tones, it gives the illusion of a much bigger space, white is a great colour for your laundry, its clean, crisp and never goes out of style.
If you don’t have an entire room for your laundry, a large cupboard cavity would be a great option to keep it separate and neat. Doubling the bathroom up as a laundry is a great idea since it’s already a wet area.
