The exterior appearance of your laundry room cabinets affects the visual appearance of the room, but it’s the interior design of the cabinets that accentuates their functionality. Custom laundry room cabinets can be designed to accommodate your individualized needs. To save space yet provide an amazing convenience for you, cabinets can be designed to conceal a drop-down ironing board or a table that folds out to create a place for folding laundry. Including pull out baskets in your lower cabinets can make laundry chores less taxing on your back. A custom cabinet with a tilt-out hamper, placed near the washing machine, is a wonderful convenience. Cabinets that conceal a horizontal drying rack for sweaters or a multi-purpose vertical drying rack is a beneficial addition to any laundry room. You might want to include cabinets in your laundry room that are large enough to hang clothes in. You can iron the clothes, hang them in the cabinet and distribute them to the appropriate rooms whenever you’re finished ironing. Laundry rooms are now being designed so that they can be used in a multi-purpose way. It’s popular to include a pet sleeping, bathing or feeding area in the laundry room. Designating specific cabinets to use for storing pet food and pet supplies will help keep your laundry room clutter-free and well-organized. It has also become popular to include a work space in the laundry room where you can sit and pay bills or work on a craft project. Adding custom cabinets to this space will keep the room organized and you’ll have the supplies you need close at hand. The laundry room is also the area where household cleaning equipment such as brooms, dustpans and the vacuum cleaner are often stored. Your laundry room cabinet configuration should include cabinets large enough to accommodate these items.
Shelves for Laundry Room Cabinets
Custom cabinets can be designed with interior shelves in various widths, depths and heights. This provides you with specific storage areas for everything from large laundry detergent bottles to small boxes of dryer sheets. Sometimes, the laundry room is the area of the house where you store general cleaning supplies. Including pull-out shelves in your cabinet design makes it easier to gain access to specific items stored in the cabinets. While keeping supplies stored behind closed doors will make your laundry room more attractive including open shelving can improve the aesthetics of the room. You can use open shelves to display photos, decorative accessories or plants. You could even include a book shelf in your laundry room. If you choose to use open shelves for storage purposes, putting the items in baskets, trays or decorative boxes will enable the room to look organized and attractive.
