Freshen Up Your Gerstad Laundry Room

Freshen Up Your Gerstad Laundry Room

Let’s face it: laundry isn’t the most fun task in the world, so why not try and make the activity more enjoyable by freshening up your space? Changing up the wallpaper, color-scheme, or adding in functionality by optimizing storage space will enhance your laundry room and result in greater enjoyment on your part every time you need to step in there! 

What features do you need?

Before renovating, ask yourself what features in a laundry room are most important to you? This is especially important to keep in mind if you are working with a smaller space. Do you prioritize a folding shelf, storage, or a sink? Asking yourself these questions can help narrow down your options for renovation. Even if you are working with a small space, there are ways to ensure you are making the most of it and increasing functionality! Consider stacking your washer and dryer to free up space for a hanging rod or folding shelf. 

Let’s consider the features in a laundry room that will make your life easier. 

Folding can be difficult, especially hunching over a basket while sitting cross-legged on the floor! Implement a laundromat style folding block into your home for easier access to folding clothes. Folding blocks are extremely versatile. For example; the space underneath can be converted into storage cabinets, or the space above can hold a suspension rod or clothesline for drying delicates. Plus, a folding block can double as an ironing station. Implementing a folding block is not only versatile, but easily customizable through Gerstad Builders. Whether you would prefer the countertop to be granite, marble or quartz, we’ve got you covered!

Another feature that is common in laundry rooms is a stylish sink. This is great for clothes that need to be washed by hand and overall increasing convenience for you. Rather than walking to another room to use a sink, you’ll have one easily at your disposal. Of course, implementing a sink that works for you is possible through a visit to our design center! 

Love your laundry space

Loving the space you’re in is important for enjoying the work you are doing. Keep this in mind when choosing a color scheme. Since laundry is a chore, calming colors work well in spaces where work has to get done. Light blues, light greens, light yellows or neutral colors are great for creating a calming environment. These colors can be implemented in the form of floor tiles, cabinets, or even through a fun wallpaper pattern that will spruce up your space and allow you to feel refreshed when stepping inside it.
