Make your laundry accessible to the outside

If you’re building or renovating and have the luxury of deciding where your laundry will go, try to choose a ground floor room with outdoor access. If you have a two-storey home, consider installing a laundry chute. Chutes are relatively easy and inexpensive to install if you have a clear path between two floors and make it more likely that the family’s dirty washing will end up in the right place.

Ventilation is key when renovating or building a laundry

Since laundries generate plenty of moisture, choosing a well-ventilated room with plenty of natural light will minimise the risk of dampness and mildew. It may also be worth installing an extractor fan and ensuring the walls are painted with mould-resistant paint.

Create harmonious flow in your laundry with matching custom cabinetry

Regardless of where your laundry is located in your home, matching your benchtop, cabinets, taps and finishes with the kitchen is a great way to create a harmonious flow of your home’s style through multiple rooms. Using the same cabinetry style for all your concealed storage areas is a popular trend, creating a streamlined finish. If your laundry isn’t located near the kitchen, consider using tones and materials that complement its nearest space, such as a bathroom or outdoor entertaining area.

What are some renovation tips for small laundries?

Consider stacking the washing machine and dryer (or choose one appliance that can perform both functions) and house them behind cupboard doors. This not only looks stylish but will minimise the noise of the machines. Remember to check the minimum required distance between water and power sources before positioning your machines. This small laundry has everything you need and makes the most of every space.

Choose durable floors for the laundry

We’ve all heard the horror stories – someone goes out for the day and forgets to turn the laundry tap off. It can happen to anyone. You can help avoid this disaster by ensuring your laundry floor is durable, easy to clean, non-slip and waterproof. It should also slope to a waste hole for drainage. Vinyl flooring or ceramic tiles are great options.
