World's Largest Selection of Decorative Switch Plates

Make laundry fun with the right decor

House chores probably aren't your favorite pastime, but unfortunately, there's no avoiding them. Laundry might be one of your most dreaded responsibilities - it's tedious and takes more time than you care to spend on it. However, with the right design, the task can be more bearable and perhaps even fun.

Of course, the key to making any laundry room more enjoyable is functionality. After all, there are many items that you'll need within arm's reach at any given point, from detergent to fabric softener and dryer sheets. Additionally, you'll want a basket or bag to collect all those socks whose mates have been lost. 

Let there be light
There's no quicker way to make a space look more welcoming than by painting the walls a lighter color. This can be especially beneficial in laundry rooms that don't get any natural light. Don't worry, there are many ways you can brighten up the area without having to install a window.

If there's a solid wooden door that leads into the area, considering removing it completely so that it's exposed to light that comes in through the hallway or the next room. If you prefer to have a door, replace the existing one with a model that has glass.

Enhance the effect by installing fixtures with reflective surfaces. This can be mirrors, storage containers or switch plates. Sure, the ones that came with your house may be slightly reflective, but why not customize the space? You have with all the other parts of your home. Consider colored glass plates or jeweled ones that will be the envy of all your neighbors.

Make it quirky
If you're a fan of fun, intricate decor, look no further than steampunk style. These designs hone in on details, and what better way to show off your love than on a functional and fashionable switch plate? Use it as a source of inspiration for the rest of your decor. 

Copper is a big part of steampunk design, so don't be afraid to invest in items that feature this material. Additionally, these surfaces will help brighten up the overall space. Doing your laundry won't be boring anymore when you're surrounded by steampunk elements. In fact, you might find yourself looking for more items to clean on a frequent basis so you can make the most of the room!
