Try these simple and stylish ideas that will have you falling in love with your laundry and feeling at home in a fresh new space.
Let’s face it, the laundry is often the forgotten room of the house, but it doesn’t have to be. A luxe laundry might seem like something that only exists on Pinterest, but with these quick and easy tips, you can create a high-end room that will ensure you always #FeelGreatAtHome and have you looking for any excuse to do the washing!
Organise Your Space
Clutter is the enemy when it comes to creating a luxe laundry so organising your space is an easy way to give it an instant lift. Storage solutions don’t just have to be practical; woven baskets and linen storage boxes can bring a coastal touch to your laundry and hide less appealing items such as cleaning products and dirty washing. Once you have culled the clutter, having a clear worktop means that you can add cute containers for washing powder, pegs, and other laundry necessities that match your chosen style and add to the overall design of the space rather than being an unwelcome eyesore!
Refresh Your Surfaces
There’s nothing like a deep clean to give a space new life and when it comes to your laundry, you can’t beat sparkling tiles and immaculate surfaces. If the thought of tackling the layer of washing powder, fabric softener, and soap scum that covers your laundry floor feels impossible, however, the Vileda Easy Wring & Clean Turbo Spin Mop is your new best friend to make you #FeelGreatAtHome. It even removes 99% of bacteria with just water*!
The mop has been smartly designed with a triangular mop head so you can easily reach corners and edges, and it also pivots, allowing for no-hassle cleaning under your laundry benches and around your washing machine and dryer. Best of all, the mop head is machine washable, and you can easily update and replace it with the Vileda refills each season – no need to purchase a brand new mop!
Don’t Underestimate Scent
A beautiful laundry often brings up thoughts of sparkling surfaces, freshly washed clothing, and perhaps most importantly the crisp smell of washing powder. Unfortunately, the reality is that a laundry probably gets more use than most other rooms in the house, and, as a result, amidst the soapy freshness, there is the hint of unwashed socks and a less than clean washing machine threatening to fill the space. While your first step should be to clean your machine with an approved cleaner, including a scented diffuser in your space is a safe and easy way to maintain a beautiful smelling laundry all year round. Think warm, fresh fragrances like vanilla, linen, and orange to keep things sophisticated and luxe.
Keep It Covered
If you have the option to tuck your washing machine, dryer, and storage shelves away, it’s definitely one worth taking if you wanted to give your laundry a streamlined feel. For those who feel floor-to-ceiling cupboard doors would close in their laundry room, consider rearranging your space to stack unsightly items on top of each other, minimising the amount of shelving needing to be covered.
Add Finishing Touches
Whether it’s a plant, mirror, or statement piece of artwork, a laundry is one space where you can really experiment and have fun with interior accessories. Try to stick to a unifying theme when choosing accessories, and remember less really is more – a few stand-out pieces is all it takes to create a laundry space you will actually want to spend time in! A floating shelf is a great way to add space for styling that doesn’t impact the functionality of your laundry.
