Getting your clothes clean is time consuming and usually ends up at the bottom of a long list of household chores. I had no idea that the average family does around 400 loads of laundry each year – which is a whole lot of time spent in the laundry room! Doing laundry doesn’t have to be at the bottom of your list any longer. With products like Tide and Maytag, and a functional, well-designed space, you can get clothes clean in one wash and have more time to spend with your family and friends.
If you are a home owner than you probably already know that The Home Depot is your one-stop shop for finding everything you need for your laundry room, including great cleaning products, appliances, organizing, storage and decorating items. To celebrate the #BrilliantHEClean campaign, Home Depot is offering a $100 gift card with the purchase of a Maytag Powerwash machine & 150 oz. Tide. Not a bad deal especially if you are currently looking to make a purchase.
Jenny Komenda, decorator and blogger at The Little Green Notebook has some tips on how to create a more efficient space in your laundry room.
Tip #1: Dealing with a dark, cave-like laundry room is a chore in and of itself! By taking off the doors on a few of your upper cabinets, you’ll open up the space and create a place to store baskets. In this laundry room, we assigned baskets for every member of the house, which makes sorting a breeze!
Tip #2: Why not decoupage or paint insides of cabinets for a fun pop of color? It’s a guaranteed smile each and every time you reach for your detergent.
Tip #3: Don’t like the cabinets, floors and countertops in your laundry room? Every surface can be painted or resurfaced! For less than $30 in materials, the outdated linoleum, brick pavers and old, dark cabinets were updated in this laundry room with paint and with a concrete overlay product.
Tip #4: A rolling laundry butler can be your best friend, doing triple duty with a hanging bar, a rolling basket and a drying rack. It’s the perfect choice for a laundry room with limited space that hasn’t been updated in a few decades.
Tip #5: Don’t neglect your laundry room walls! Hanging interesting art and mirrors will elevate your room and make it feel less utilitarian and more “homey”. Suddenly those 400 loads of laundry most of us will do this year might actually be enjoyable!
Tip #6: Use a slab of stone or a simple piece of painted MDF on top of the washer/dryer units to create a folding station and to prevent socks from slipping in between the appliances.
