Having the right items in your laundry room can help to promote efficiency when you are doing laundry chores. If you are having your laundry room renovated, expanded, or you are building a new home and designing the perfect laundry space, you may find yourself wondering what items you need in your laundry room. Here are four of the best items to keep in your laundry room to make the task of doing laundry faster and easier.
One of the items that you should be sure to keep in your laundry room are laundry baskets, or hampers. You need a place to store all of the dirty laundry in your home. While some people prefer to have a laundry basket or hamper in every room, some households keep one central laundry basket in their laundry room. Everyone walks their laundry down to the laundry room daily, allowing the person in charge of doing laundry to see what laundry needs to be done, without having to walk from room to room to see every one’s individualized laundry bin.
Another item that you should be sure to put in your laundry room is a folding table. A folding table provides you with the space you need to fold clothes and lay them until you carry them to the rooms and dressers where the clothes belong. Many people take their laundry out of their laundry room and fold their laundry on their bed or couch. Having a dedicated space where you can fold the laundry without having to take it to a different space makes more sense.
Hanging racks serve two different purposes. One of the purposes of hanging racks is to give you a space to hang or lay items that do not go in the dryer. This allows the items to hang or lay flat until they are dry. Placing wet items in your closet can lead to mildew growth, so having a dedicated space for these items is important. Second, a hanging rack can give you a space to hang items that are dry, but cannot be folded because they will wrinkle.
Bin Organizer for Separating Colors
The final item that you should consider keeping in your laundry room is a bin organizer for seperating your colored clothing. Most people do a load of whites, a load of red clothing, a load of dark clothing and a load of light colored clothing. Having bins to sort your dirty laundry into can make it easier to organize your laundry before you wash it.
