Your laundry room can be more than just a laundry room. With a few changes and some creativity, a laundry room can double as a storage room, mudroom, office or almost any other room. If you find yourself in need of some extra space, try one of these ideas to take full advantage of your laundry room.

Storage Room

Who couldn’t use some extra storage? Add some shelves and cupboards to your laundry room and you suddenly have room to store all those things you couldn’t fit anywhere else. You can go with an open look like this, or you can add doors to hide the clutter.

Mudroom

Turn your laundry room into a mudroom by adding some shelves, hooks, a rug, a bench and some shoe storage. This is a handy place to hang up your coat and kick your shoes off as you walk in the door.

Home Office

Create a home office in your laundry room by adding a table or desk, a chair and some lighting. You can make the area more pleasant to work in by adding a fresh coat of paint and accents like a rug, art and plants.

If you don’t have a laundry room, or just want to turn it into something else, try hiding your washer and dryer in your kitchen. A tall closet will do the trick and you can just close the doors and everything will be out of the way.

Pet Shower Area

With some tile, grout and the necessary plumbing, you can add a pet shower area to your laundry room. To tackle this project, you may need to change your home’s plumbing or install a shower. For a plumber on Long Island that specializes in these areas, contact us.

Do you need an extra bathroom? If your laundry room is large enough, you can turn it into a bathroom and get two rooms out of one space. There are lots of ways to include a washer and dryer in a bathroom. Leave them out in the open for easy access, or hide them in a closet or behind cupboard doors.

All of these ideas can help you get more out of your laundry room. If your plans include remodeling or changing your home’s piping, contact us.
