Your laundry room and mudroom serve the key purpose of keeping the rest of your home’s interior clean and pristine. But in order to achieve maximum efficiency, you’ve got to work extra hard to keep those all-important cleaning areas organized.
More often than not, the downfall of any laundry room or mudroom is a lack of storage. Things tend to get messy when you don’t have “a place for everything and everything in its place.”
So, how can you tackle that everyday mess and achieve the laundry room or mudroom of your dreams? The team at Bella Systems Philly has a few ideas…
Read on to learn more about the efficient (and completely customizable) solutions that will change the way your laundry room and mudroom look and function.
Your mudroom sees a lot of traffic, for better or worse. While the whole point of this offshoot is to keep dirt, footwear, and outerwear out of the main house, it doesn’t always work that way. Updating your mudroom with cabinets, cubbies, and benches is a fantastic way to ensure everything stays neat. Mudroom cabinets can be wall mounted or part of a more extensive system that includes cubbies for footwear, hooks for coats, and storage for toys and pet accessories.
Laundry Room Cabinets
Much like mudroom cabinets, laundry room cabinets can provide a larger, concealed space to hide away general clutter. Large cabinets can be mounted over your washer and dryer, and custom cabinetry can provide you with limitless options that meet your needs. Imagine it: a design that conceals your washer and dryer! How about custom cabinets with concealed hanging rods for drying clothes? Or you could focus purely on aesthetics. If you can dream it, we can do it!
We love the simple organization of a beautiful, functional storage bench. Bench seats provide so much more than a place to sit. These storage tools offer hidden compartments that are perfect for organizing shoes, backpacks, coats, and mittens without all the clutter. Everything is out of sight, but never far from reach! Need we say more?
Countertops are incredibly useful if you need space for folding, but beware the danger of cluttered countertops. If you choose to install countertops, make sure you keep them clear of random objects so you can make full use of it as a functional workstation. If you have a front-facing washer and dryer, you can install a countertop right on top! Another great option is to incorporate full cabinetry around your appliances or around the rest of the room, creating more opportunity for counter space.
Whether you choose to hide them or show them off for their aesthetic qualities, baskets are a wonderful way to stay organized and retain ease of accessibility. Incorporating open cubby holes is a great way to show off the beauty of a wicker basket while hiding away the mess. Both your laundry room and your mudroom can benefit from the addition of baskets in this way.
Air Drying Stations
Hidden drying racks are one of the most popular additions to laundry rooms, and they’re great in mudrooms as well. Hanging rods can be installed at different heights and hidden within cabinetry. Additionally, pullout drying stations with mesh trays for wet clothing can be added to your custom cabinets.
More than anything, we love the option of hidden storage. If the sight of any mess drives you bananas, make it disappear! Hidden storage can make any room look pristine by creating the illusion that there are no extraneous items at all.
