The laundry room was once only a place to wash, dry and stack piles of clothing. No importance was given to the functionality or overall look of it. But laundry rooms have evolved to suit our busier lives and have become a part of the home where you not only do the wash, but where you might also site additional freezers, organize extra pantry items, or store sports equipment and tools. Remodeling your laundry room so that it is optimized for storage is a great investment, and the addition of floor to ceiling cabinetry, easily cleaned stone floors and a large and practical sink will add value to a laundry room. No longer do the kids shoes and backpacks need to be scattered, they can be neatly tucked away in one area. Plus, as today’s appliances enjoy better design values and can work almost like a showpiece to the entire room, you can now keep your laundry room door open when you have guests over! A remodel of a laundry room will usually need the help of a contractor, especially in those cases where electrical outlets, plumbing evacuation or dryer vents need to be moved to another location. However smaller DIY projects that the homeowner can easily accomplish, like simply repainting and fitting off-the-shelf storage, can also make a huge difference to your laundry room.
