Laundry rooms are an underappreciated room in most houses but often prove to be one of the most utilised rooms in the home.

If you’re looking to update your dated laundry room, here are 7 laundry room upgrades we’ve think every home should have.

 

 

Elevated washer and dryer

Doing the laundry entails bending over and lifting heavy loads in and out of your washer and dryer. Give your back a much needed break and install your washer and dryer on an elevated platform. Our experts suggest a platform of around 40 cm for the optimal height.

 

Deep basin

Some spots have to be taken out by hand. A deep basin such as this one that holds 21.5L from Caroma should do the trick!

 

Pull-out ironing board

If you’re low on space, look into installing a pull out ironing board. Once all the laundry’s been washed, ironed and sorted, just slide the ironing board back in! Make sure you use sliding drawers that can bear the weight and pressure of ironing. Invest in these Blum Movento runner systems that can carry up to 60 kg.

 

 

Sturdy countertops

Just like kitchen countertops, laundry room countertops can take quite the beating. Invest in a sturdy non-porous countertop that can withstand any nicks and scratches.

 

 

Hidden laundry basket

Utilise the space beneath your granite countertops by installing hidden laundry baskets. For the ultimate convenience, allot space for three baskets – darks, lights and coloured.

 

 

Tiled floors and floor drain

Clean-up will be a breeze with a fully-tiled laundry room floor. Make sure you include a floor drain so you can easily mop whatever water pools up right into the floor drain. Hire an expert in bathroom renovations in Sydney to ensure that the job will be done right in a minimal amount of time.
