World's Largest Selection of Decorative Switch Plates

Make your laundry room more functional

If you don't look forward to laundry because it's a hassle, then it may be time to reassess your laundry space. Chances are, there are several ways that you can make the area more functional.

Laundry isn't a particularly difficult task, but if you don't have everything you need within arm's reach, it can seem much worse than it really is. Fixing this problem might be as simple as installing some shelves, but why stop there? 

Start with lighting
Unless you have a house with a laundry chute, chances are you carry the hamper into the laundry room. It doesn't matter which level of the home it's in - doing this is a hassle. You can increase safety and ease this routine by replacing your normal light switches with Decora ones. These large toggles make turning the lights on and off a breeze. 

Use this new fixture as an opportunity to change up the decor in the laundry room. Keep it simple but classy with Art Deco switch plates that'll draw the eye. Alternatively, you can make it the focal point of the room by featuring a more unique cover, such as ones that have interesting shapes.

Move onto storage
If you've been keeping your laundry detergent, softener and dryer sheets right on top of the machines, you're due for an upgrade. Shelves are easy do-it-yourself projects that can hold anything from laundry essentials to decorative items that'll help make the room more welcoming.

Additionally, consider putting up a hanging rod. Chances are, you have articles of clothing that need to be hung up right away. Having this right in the laundry room ensures that there are no chances that the clothes will get wrinkled as they make their way out of the dryer and onto a hanger. 

There's no doubt that you'll come across mysterious lone socks during your laundry sessions. At some point, you may find their partners, but in the meantime, you have to keep these single socks in a central location. Having a bag nearby where you can drop these items will optimize your chances of being able to form a pair again.

When your laundry room is functional and esthetically pleasing, you'll find that it no longer feels like a chore. You can bet that your friends and family members will be jealous of your redecorated space!
