How to Make Space for a Laundry Nook in Your Home
One of the most exciting parts of being a home owner is that you can fill it with your own appliances, including a washer and dryer. Not having to depend on laundromats can be really liberating, and can save you money as well. However, not all homes come equipped with the space for a washer and dryer. Here are a few suggestions for how to make space for a laundry nook in your home from the renovation specialists at Miter Renovations & Design.
Build a Laundry Cabinet in Your Kitchen
For a space-saving approach to putting a washer and dryer in your home, try building these appliances into the counter space of your kitchen. Place your washer and dryer side-by-side and have counter space constructed on top for multipurpose use, or stack the machines on top of each other to save space. Either way, this economizing approach to washer and dryer placement is a great option for smaller homes where every square inch counts.
Build Walls and Door to Create a Laundry Room
If space is not an issue in your home, you may want to consider building walls and a door around your washer and dryer to create a small laundry room. By sectioning off some of your hallway or kitchen space to create another room, you can minimize clutter in your home by keeping dirty clothes, soap and other laundry accessories within a specific space. Keep in mind that some building codes require “wet” rooms to be aligned throughout your home for plumbing reasons, so you may be limited in where you can place this additional room.
Having your own washer and dryer is a huge convenience in any home, but these appliances can also take up a lot of space and some renovations to your home may be required to fit them into place.
