The perfect layout of a laundry room should revolve around the so-called “washing circuit”. In this way, the ideal is to concentrate the washing area with a water point and the cabinets with cleaning tools on one wall. And in another, the ironing area. The washing area does not need to have natural light, but the ironing area would be advisable because it is much easier to see how the pieces are being ironed. Good idea, huh? Well, read on and you will see many more.
“I wanted to create a practical laundry room for the family that looked old and looked like it had been there all its life,” says interior designer Paula Duarte. The glass wall expands the feeling of space and light.
The blinds provide privacy when clothes are hanging. The washing area occupies a single front and the walls are used with an extendable clothesline.
Flower wallpaper adds a lot of life and color to the laundry room. The same as the porcelain floor that also draws flowers. They combine great with white.
Super warm, with tuff floors and wooden furniture, this laundry room has ample space for taking care of your clothes. It is a project of Deulonder Arquitectura Domèstica. The space under the window has been used as a laundry area, with a Neolith countertop and sill, and large removable drawers. Next to it are a washing machine and a dryer, one next to the other to be more comfortable. And below, the baskets for dirty clothes.
In addition, it has an open wardrobe area, with a bar and removable shelves, for ready-to-store clothes. Also several cabinets that combine wooden fronts with double glass with a mesh in the middle (jute and steel) to store white clothes, cleaning products, surpluses …
The wall is lined with a Phillip Jeffries striped wallpaper and a practical wooden hanger.
The Coton et Bois team wanted this laundry room, of about 6 m2 and located next to the kitchen, to be open-plan, versatile, and with plenty of natural light. “We place the sink under the window and underneath we place the storage,” explains Javier Baldrich. The ironing cabinet is hidden by the doors below the hanger. This way it is only removed when necessary. The linen effect wallpaper gives warmth to the ironing room and the glass sliding doors add light and connect it to the kitchen.
On the other front and in parallel, the entire wall has been used with cabinets up to the ceiling with a broom; washer, dryer column, and open hanging area.
What is it? The interior designer of Deulonder Arquitectura Doméstica, Chone de la Sotilla, tells us: “You need a counter with a water point and space to leave a basin at rest, as well as cabinets to store detergents. And next to the washer and dryer , a basket or two to separate the white clothes from the colored ones. ”
The order is basic. Chone advises “a bar to hang clothes; if possible, another at a height of 1.10 m for tablecloths, and shelves to leave the bread baskets with the ironed clothes.” And the ideal thing is that the ironing board has drawers for brushes, the sewing box, the starch …, a basket for ironing clothes and a tray for those that are already ironed
It is a great idea to order the clothes of the whole family from the same ironer. A shelf for each member of the house, and as the ironed clothes come out, we fold them and put them in the corresponding place. Then it will be much easier and faster to take it to the different cabinets.
Interior designer Blanca Tey converted a small room next to the kitchen into a pantry and laundry room. Here, the priority was to store and there are no baskets, but cabinets. Blanca took up all the available space with cabinets to store not only dirty and ironed clothes, but also household linens.
To make it beautiful is to make it more pleasant. Here, the mermaid tiles gave it maximum relevance; the green color, serenity and the touches of the sink and the taps, the British vintage touch .
The closed cabinets give a feeling of order. There is nothing left in sight and this makes the space look very serene. The laundry basket is one of the most critical points. To avoid having it exempt and overflowing with accumulated clothes, a closet like this is the solution.
In this laundry room, the appliances are in a column and thus leave space for the laundry baskets and drawers. “We decorate them with vinyls and in them we keep stain removal products or the sewing kit, very useful to revise a button,” explains interior designer Asun Antó.
It is thanks to its high tap as it leaves space to place a large bowl and fill it with water. Next to the sink you have to think about leaving a free marble area to immediately rest the basins full of water without having to make more efforts.
That the ironing board has baskets to organize clothes before and after ironing, we have already seen that it is a great idea. But if you also have a closet nearby in which to leave the pieces that cannot be folded, such as shirts, or the larger ones that take up space, such as quilts, order is assured.
It is 1.60 m wide but they are used to the maximum. Under the sink, the laundry baskets and the paneled washing machine, which takes up less visually. The cabinets decorate thanks to the glass doors and, in the hole of one of them, the ironer is put. De Deulonder Domestic Architecture.
The sink is in Corian and is extended to become a countertop. This way it is more integrated and looks bigger. And on the other hand, it is much cleaner because as it does not have joints, dirt does not accumulate. Next to it, an open shelf to keep the soaps at hand.
