Five updates to love your laundry room

Bathrooms and kitchens receive the most attention in terms of home improvement, but where is the love for laundry rooms? After all, you could easily spend as much or more time in your laundry room - between washing, drying, ironing, folding, and everything in between. While doing laundry might be boring, your laundry room doesn’t have to be. 

The modern, multi-functional laundry room needs more than just the washer and dryer combo. Show your laundry room some love with these updates, hand picked by our natural stone slabs providers.


1. Storage

Having sufficient storage in your laundry room is critical to maximize your function. Keep your cleaning supplies and detergents organized with built-in or stand alone shelving. Cabinetry allows you to store all of your household products from towels to toilet paper for an efficient, sleek design you’ll love. 


2. Backsplash

The perfect backsplash is both functional and stylish. Not only will a gorgeous backsplash add a sense of luxury to your laundry space, but it will help to protect your walls from dirt, grime and potential water damage. Choose a stone or tile backsplash that highlights your cabinetry and countertops, and fits your room’s overall aesthetic.


3. Flooring

Laundry rooms are often high-traffic areas, so it’s important to prioritize resilient flooring. But, what’s the best flooring for your laundry room? Your laundry room can be a target for mold and mildew due to moisture. That being said, the best floor is non-absorbent and non-slip. Tiles like ceramic and porcelain are the perfect water-resistant options for elegant and functional flooring. 


4. Countertops

Today, countertops are arguably as essential in your laundry room as your washer and dryer. A surface to place and fold your laundry at makes the task a lot less of a pain. For a luxurious laundry room makeover, you can install a “kitchen” island for easy access. As far as the best surface for your countertops, natural stone slabs reign superior. Not only will it stand up against whatever germs and bacteria you dirty laundry dishes out, it will look great while doing it. 


5. Sink and Washing Station

A sink in your laundry room just makes sense. After all, who wants to go to another room to hand wash your delicates or spot treat stains? Quick and easy access to a sink is really helpful for special circumstances. When it comes to choosing the right sink, the bigger the better. 

A large, deep farmhouse style washing station will allow you to easily clean and soak your laundry, as well as perform other household chores - like washing your dog. You could also build a separate station to groom your furry friend, as designated pet washing stations are becoming more and more common in laundry rooms.
