From the article:
For some, laundry can be a peaceful escape, a quiet time to fold towels and socks. Others never seem to find washing clothes as more than a household chore. If you fall on the not-so-fun end of the spectrum, you may be in need of a laundry room redo to make your laundry duties easier and perhaps more enjoyable. Spice up the laundry room in your Philadelphia home with a few of these tips and design ideas.
1. Get Organized
Sorting clothes before washing makes the job of tossing in a load of laundry faster. Mark separate baskets for lights, darks, and towels. Canvas bags labeled by wash type also work well. Solicit the help of your family members by charging them with the responsibility of bringing their own wash to the laundry room and leaving it in the correct storage container. Another way to organize the room is to install hanging rods for any articles of clothing that you prefer to air dry.
2. Create Space Savers
For busy families, laundry rooms never seem large enough to handle the steady stream of clothes rotating in and out. To maximize your space, install shelving or cabinets above your washer and dryer. Purchase stock cabinets at a home improvement store or look for clearance sales on higher-quality cabinets. This additional storage allows you to conceal cleaning products cluttering an already busy room. If you prefer to fold clothes as soon as they come out of the washer, consider adding counter space spanning the length of the room. Adding a wall-mounted drying rack can also be a great space saver.
