If you have the space, a separate laundry room can transform your home. The ability to designate a space solely to laundry means you won’t need to install a washing machine or dryer in your kitchen. What’s more – you won’t clutter up your kitchen or living areas with clothes airers and ironing boards!
Many properties have a utility room directly off the kitchen, which is the ideal location for your laundry facilities. Alternatively, you may want to convert an existing structure, like a garage, into a fully functional utility or laundry area. No matter what your current setup looks like, our experienced team can help you to design a laundry area that’s functional and in-keeping with the style of your property.
In your laundry room, you’ll obviously want to have at least one washing machine. Some homeowners prefer to save space by having a combi washer/dryer, while others enjoy the flexibility of having separate appliances. If you have a large family, however, having more than one washing machine and dryer can be advantageous.
With so many configurations available, it’s easy to maximise the space available and create a laundry area that works for you.
Undertaking Laundry Renovations
Every property has a kitchen and bathroom but not every home has a designated space for laundry. This means that laundry renovations are particularly unique and need to be tailored to the specific dimensions of the property. Of course, this gives you free rein to create a totally unique renovation that reflects your style.
If you have an existing laundry room, your laundry renovations may consist of gutting the area, upgrading power supplies and adding new décor, for example. When you’re repurposing a room and creating a laundry area from scratch, more preparation may be required. Transforming a garage into a laundry room may mean adding extra insulation, lighting and power, for example.
In addition to this, you may want to consider adding soundproofing as part of your laundry renovations. Although modern appliances are typically quieter than older machines, they can still disturb the peace and tranquillity of your home. By soundproofing your laundry room, however, you can minimise the noise heard throughout the rest of the property when the washer and/or dryer are in use.
Creating a separate laundry area involves installing or modifying electrics, which is why it’s so important to access professional assistance. As washing machines, by definition, have a water inlet, it’s essential that appropriate measures are taken to ensure your laundry space is fully functional and utterly safe.
Fortunately, our team of professionals are fully equipped, certified and insured, so you’ll have peace of mind that every precaution will be taken when renovating your laundry area.
