The ultimate laundry design, all the tips and tricks needed!
Today we share all the tips and tricks about designing the ultimate laundry - operational, gorgeous and show off all the boxes!
The size of your washing machine and whatever you renovate your construction, it is essential that its design is practical and practical. So where do you start and what are the requirements? We have compiled a list of top tips for creating the ultimate wash for you.
So first of all, where is the right place to find your laundry?
Our favorite place is directly from inside the house and inside the house from inside the house. With this, moving laundry here is not always practical or possible, especially if you are renovating a new house.
Ideally, your laundry must be in a service area, away from bedrooms and living areas, so that when your washing machine or dryer is in use, it will resonate quite the rest or amusement area. Do not measure. If you are preparing small items and the space is a small item, you can find your laundry in your garage to become your home as an access or aisle from your garage.
If you do not have the luxury of a private laundry room, consider placing your laundry in the bathroom or kitchen or in a cabinet in a hall away from living areas. Wherever you go, make sure your laundry has reasonable access to clothing or an external desiccating area.
2. Home appliances
The next step in designing your laundry is choosing your utensils. Although many washers and dryers are standard sizes, they are almost wide, long, or deep. You do not want to be frustrated if you cannot get the right pitch so invest in a good capo. So determine:
1) Do I want a ahead or up loader washing machine?
2) Do I have a separate washer and dryer or all in one?
3) Do I want my belongings to be hidden in closets (this requires adequate ventilation and perhaps mechanical ventilation such as an exhaust fan)
Before moving on to the next step, it is very important to choose your equipment.
Your next step is to consider how to use the laundry and what you stash in it. Design your space to reduce the use of duplicates and simplify the process of saving, desiccating and folding to save time.
Consider the workflow and make sure there is enough space for safe and comfortable movement. Who uses the laundry? Lifting equipment may be appropriate to reduce bending or crawling.
If possible, place your washing machine between your sink and laundry peds, allowing you to move clothes directly between the compartments. Placing the dryer next to or above the washing machine reduces double handling and ensures that you place the belt space near you so that you can pull or arrange the clothes directly from your dryer.
If you use one or the rail to hang wet clothes, make room for yourself. In the laundry below, we have allowed both shorter clothes and full-length items to be hung so that the air does not dry out and is ready for ironing. The ironing station is located on a wall adjacent to this area that can be conveniently accessed.
Adequate storage in your laundry is gold. Comprises a combination of wardrobe, overhead, drawers and bench space for the ultimate storage center. Covered overheads are great for storing chemicals out of the reach of children, and the placement of a tall closet allows you to keep sweeps, maps and vacuum cleaners out of your sight.
Choosing custom cabinets is the best way to maximize and optimize your space, but it costs more than flat packing options or standard storage. Each of the options can lead to a functional and aesthetic space, so consider the best for you and your fund.
Installing rails to dry clothes on hangers reduces ironing, and adding open shelves allows you to disclose fresh plants, pots, candles, soaps or towels - finished touches Which gives your designer laundry.
5- Juicy bits
So now you are ready to design your new laundry! But wait, what about all those small, luxurious doses and luxuries you just have to have?
Make sure your settee is deep enough for your appliances and sinks! A standard depth of 600 mm is a kitchen bench, but it is often not enough for a washing machine. Remind that the sink is normally larger than the kitchen sink and you will have hoses on the back of your washing machine. We choose at least one 650 mm deep bench in the washing machine.
Sink and faucet
There are several types of fall and fall options on the market. If you have space, choose two sinks side by side, as we did under the washing machine. Make sure you have enough room in the back of your sink to fit your faucet, or you can put it next to it if space does not allow. A mixer with extraction spray allows you to easily clean the sink and wash your utensils.
Consider an ironing center
These are beautiful because they have a light and safety timer that turns off the electricity to your iron after the timer is done. The ironing board is adjustable and goes into your designed cabinet effortlessly. We install them in a 90 mm thick wall slot to ensure that we reach a neat end. Make sure your wall cavity frame is deep enough to fit and allows a power supply to generate enough power to do so.
Take out the laundry bins
A pair of large buckets will take your laundry slide to the next level. Strong plastic buckets are easy to lift to prevent odors, and sometimes hose or wash. If you want to choose an independent laundry basket, be sure to allocate your laundry design space under a bench or in a corner so that this is possible.
Ventilation, external access and luminance
If possible, have direct access to your clothing line and ensure adequate ventilation through a window and / or an exhaust fan. Make sure there is enough light through the windows or a flashlight, and consider installing LED taskbar lighting inside your cabinet.
You may also want to consider a closet dryer, especially if you live in a cold area. This will allow your clothes to dry quickly and not ruin the desiccating of the clothes. Just make sure you consider ventilation to prevent moisture build-up or mold formation.
Conceal your washing machine taps
Pipe valves and washing machine power points can be hidden in a cupboard next to the washer. Ask your cabinet maker or assistant to drill a large hole in the back of your cabinet next to your washing machine, removing your cables and hoses.
Flooring and splashing
Make sure your flooring is able for a humid environment and is non-slip when soggy. If you are tiling, close a short strip of tile at the top of the wall to prevent damage in the event of a water leak. For easy cleaning, use a prominent splash back on your couch and use the sink to give your clothes a designer look.
If you are constructing a two-story house or renovating them, combining a laundry opening is essential! It can be installed inside the closet or hidden behind a cabinet in a hallway, directly above a washing machine. We use a cabinet maker to use under the laminate board, and always install the clutch enough so that young children can not climb into it.
As with any change in house, be sure to check the building regulations before you begin.
