Having a Laundry Room in your House is Very Valuable

Having a laundry room in your home. Has this thought ever even crossed your mind? If it did, then you must know why it’s important to have a separate laundry room. If it didn’t, then probably you should think about it now.
A dedicated laundry room is supposed to make your everyday household errands more organized and a whole lot simpler. Although there’s nothing wrong with having the washing machine included in your kitchen, it is still better to keep the laundry out of your food preparation place. And not just for this reason, there are other benefits of having a laundry room in your home. Like these:
- Adds to Convenience
There are several things in our homes, that don’t really have a ‘home’ anywhere — for example, bathroom cleaners, detergents of different sorts, paper goods, laundry bins, etc. A well-organized laundry room can help you store all the extra things that need to be stored away. A laundry room should be everything you want, to make your life easier.
- Clutter-free laundry
Doing laundry includes unclean, germs-ridden clothes, a variety of detergents, water, and the smell. When the washing area is a part of your kitchen, you will have to be careful of where you keep the clothes, where the detergent goes (preferably not anywhere near the food), and that you do not flood your kitchen with soapy water. But, when you have a laundry room, you have nothing to worry about, as all of these things can be quickly taken care of, in that tiny room.
- Laundry utility area
Laundry rooms do not necessarily have to be just that. You can have a little larger space, which can be a utility room, with cabinets, utility sink, washer and dryer, and a wash area. Also, a place designed for utilities does not mean it has to be shabby. You can get the right kinds of cabinets installed, a counter top to fold and iron clothes if need be, a basin where you could bathe your pets or house plants or dye your hair. It can have it all and it can do it all.
So yes, a laundry room doubles up for a utility room and a storage room, of sorts. While you may want to put away everything you do not want to see in your home, in this room, it is indeed not the best idea. By doing so, you defeat the purpose of a convenient, clutter-free, and an organized laundry room.
In case, you do not have a large room to devote to laundry, a small space where you can include the washing machine, a hanging rail, a sink, and a cabinet should still be able to serve all the purposes of a laundry room. The whole idea of taking the clutter out of your kitchen is not that difficult to implement after all.
