In need of some great laundry renovation ideas to help make laundry day a little more bearable? Creative design is the perfect way to spruce up your laundry and transform it into a space you actually want to spend time in.
As home design and renovation experts, we decided to share some of our favourite laundry renovation ideas that will transform the humble task of doing laundry a lot more enjoyable. So here goes…
A few of our favourite laundry renovation ideas
A minimalist aesthetic is perfect for laundry rooms because it helps to create a clean, uncluttered look, while encouraging simplicity and organisation to make doing laundry a more efficient and straightforward process.
At Mint, we often recommend integrated appliances to clients who appreciate minimalist design. While integrated appliances are commonplace in the kitchen, they’re not as frequently used in laundries—but there’s really no reason why it can’t be done.
Provided your appliances still have adequate ventilation, installing cabinet doors in front of appliances like washers and dryers can be an excellent way to produce a cleaner, more streamlined look and create the illusion of a bigger space.
Add an artistic element
Adding an artistic element such as a statement wall mural, wallpaper or art print can have a dramatic impact, instantly transforming an otherwise regular laundry into a far more striking, gallery-like space.
Don’t feel daring enough to step out with a bold design statement? Even something as simple as a painted accent wall, some potted plants or patterned tubs or baskets can go a long way, adding some extra personality to the space and boosting its appeal. Opt for colours and pieces that reflect your personal style and you’ll be amazed at the difference they make!
Make doing laundry simple with smart cabinetry choices
Your cabinetry choices will have a big impact on how functional your finished laundry is. Rather than simply opting for a couple of cabinets, a sink and a benchtop, take your design a couple of steps further.
Why not create a space for your laundry baskets directly underneath your washer so you can pull freshly washed clothes out of the washer, straight into the basket ready for hanging. A dedicated folding station is another addition that is always welcomed, as are integrated pull-out laundry hampers that allow you to quickly sort dirty washing as you go.
A great benefit when you renovate your laundry with Mint is that all our cabinetry can be custom made to specification. That means you’ll be completely unrestricted to configure your ideal size and combination of cabinetry to maximise the available space and make doing laundry oh-so-easy.
Transform your laundry into a spa-like space
Imagine if doing laundry could feel like a relaxing trip to a day spa? Well we think it can!
Doing some simple things like choosing soothing colours and ambient lighting, adding a music-playing device so you can listen to some relaxing tunes, and plugging in an aromatherapy essential oil diffuser can go a long way to creating a tranquil sanctuary where you can escape from an otherwise hectic home life. Before you know it, your laundry will become your little personal escape!
Add some interesting feature tiles
Feature tiles are a great addition to almost any laundry renovation. A very effective way to create an eye-catching focal point in your laundry, feature tiles can help to express your personal style by adding a unique touch to the space and elevating its overall look and feel.
From single-colour glazed tiles to marble, patterned, mosaic, mirrored, textured or decorative accent tiles, there’s an option to suit every taste and it’s a sure-fire way to create a more stylish and inviting space that you’ll love spending time in.
