What to Do for a Laundry Room Remodel

The laundry room probably isn’t the most exciting room in the house. That doesn’t mean it can’t be the most useful. Right now it might only be a home for the washer and dryer, but it can be turned into a storage area with simple changes like built-in storage units . See why a laundry room remodel is just what you need to get the most out of this room.

Neglected to Effective

Most people think of their laundry room as nothing more than the place where they do their laundry. They don’t do anything to make it more useful or more attractive. Little do they realize this space can be so much more. A laundry room can be organized, efficient, and labor saving.


Whether the room is big or small, its layout can be slowing you down. Is your folding table far from the dryer? Perhaps the storage location where you keep your detergent, softener, and dryer sheets is out of reach, and you need to grab a stool, bend and twist, or walk across the room. Be more productive by changing your layout.

Start planning a layout that simplifies your routine. Plan counters, storage, sinks, and other amenities to make optimal use of the room. Consider your method and what may speed up your work. Make sure that the most needed items will stay within reach. Baskets or organizers will help you keep things organized. If you don’t have countertops, create a folding station to round out your space. The idea is to create your ideal area to get your laundry done without a hassle.


Now that you’ve planned your layout, you can design your storage. Remember, this room doesn’t just have to be the place you do your laundry in. It can be your go-to utility and storage space, filling in where other rooms don’t cut it. A good start is to utilize pedestal drawers for your washer and dryer . They’re a great place to store your supplies while you’re not using them.

We suggest you go beyond a few drawers, though. Whether you’re doing a laundry room remodel on a budget or money’s no object, storage is key to making this room beneficial to everyone in the house. Built-in storage shelves (especially in unused corners) will allow you to add a convenient spot to store anything from detergent to those winter sheets. Hang a wire storage rack on the wall to make dryer sheets and other supplies readily accessible. For an added bonus, choose a rack which features hooks so it can double as a drying rack.

Get creative with your room and add over-the-door hanging storage. Anything from a shoe organizer to a bathroom hanging wire rack can double as storage to place small items like garbage bags, cleaning supplies, and more. Maximize cabinet capacity by placing baskets inside. Place hooks on the walls to store brooms and mops out of the way. With a little ingenuity, you can take advantage of any space you have.

Bay Home & Window partners with Costco. Not only did the Costco collaboration help to give us confidence in the quality of Bay Home & Window, but we also got a great deal on our purchase of window coverings for our whole house! We're very happy with the quality of the product and the high-quality installation work. The window coverings look great.

We had cellular shades installed and it was just want we needed! Finally, we can block out the sun that is just merciless this time of year. I can tell the quality is superb, and install was painless. We had originally ordered light filtering shades and then discovered that it still made the rooms too bright. Bay Home made it easy and affordable to reorder the replacements. They really want us to enjoy our home. Thank you Bay Home & Windows!

Years ago we bought custom wood shutters throughout our home from Bay Home & Window. We had a great experience and our shutters still look great. Recently we remodeled our closet and had them back to create a custom closet. I had no idea how much we could love a closet. Everyone at Bay Home and Window was easy to work with they helped us figure out the design and utilized every inch of our odd sized space. From appointment scheduling to installation everyone was very professional and exceeded our expectations.
