Laundry rooms are notorious for being cramped. If you need new inspiration for making over your laundry room, these laundry room ideas will help you save precious space and time.
To make more functional space — like a folding table — construct a built-in cabinet around the washer and dryer. This works well if you have a front-loading washer, but can still be done with a top-loader. Build the cabinet with a hinged countertop so the appliances can be removed in case repairs are needed. If you have a top-loading washer, make sure you have enough head room for a hinged countertop and you’ll want to use a hinge with locking side arms that can stay open. To totally conceal the washer and dryer, install bi-fold doors or use a shower-curtain tension rod to hang upholstery-weight material just below the edge of your countertop.
