The last two years have forced us all to spend more time at home. As a result, we’re taking a 2nd (and 3rd) look at forgotten spaces. We pause, reflect, and ask, “could this be better?” Case in point: the laundry room. If you’re finding yourself in need of some laundry room remodeling ideas, you’ll love this Naperville project!
Many of our clients remodel their basements to get more family space. For example, they may add an extra bedroom or workout space. However, the poor laundry room gets walled off, with studs exposed, and left in the dark.
This house was no exception. The original space looked like a forgotten basement: cold and unwelcoming. Completely unfinished, the area had a cement floor and exposed wall studs. But as part of a basement home office remodel, this Naperville couple decided to update the laundry room, too.
There’s a big advantage to basement laundry rooms: lots more space to work with! You can meet the needs for laundry, storage, hobby space, or anything else you might want to do.
Some of the most popular laundry room remodel ideas involve hiding all the extra stuff we have. For this remodel, wall-to-wall storage cabinets were a must. By hiding “stuff” behind closed doors, the space appears much larger. In addition to the washer, dryer, and laundry sink, there’s still plenty of room for a floor freezer chest.
Keeping all the cabinets and appliances white helped create a bright and light space. The light gray walls with white trim create a clean, simple, and polished look for the space. Carrara marble porcelain tile helps to create a spacious classic style, and makes cleanup quick and easy.
With a space like this, storage and organization are easy! And even the chore of doing laundry is just a little bit better now.
