Interior Design & Decorating Tips for an Efficient Laundry Room

Interior Design & Decorating Tips for an Efficient Laundry Room
by Jeanine Naviaux

I tought long and hard about what I wanted in a laundry room. My design ideas come from things I don’t like and I look for ways to change them. I, myself am busy and the last thing I want to do is to to wait for the dryer.

So I decided to buy 2 stackable dryers at Sears and bolted them together. It doesnt sound simple, let me explain. Initially I make sure to purchase gas dryers. After I hired a licensed electrician and he made sure there was enough power in the laundy room for both dryers. Then we took the exhaust hose from each dryers and connected them so they could vent outside. This was eight years ago, and I still love it!

Also, what helps is that I bought a front loader washing machine. It’s more expensive in the beginning but it’s worth its weight in gold when it comes to energy and water consumption. What I have discovered is that the spin cycle gets more water out than a top loader so my dryer time is about 20 minutes. The other great thing about the front loader is that it has a 8 hour delay button. So, I can set it at 10pm and by the morning, the laundry is ready to go into the dryer! Pretty cool!

Lastly, I purchased a Kohler Executive Chef sink for my laundry room. Even tough it was intended for the kitchen it works great when you are habd-washing clothes and you will be in the laundry room not the kitchen.

This is just one example of where I take a problem and am able to solve it. That’s why I like being a designer!
