Home Remodeling – Space For the Laundry Room
the benefits of adding on or remodeling a laundry room to improve the value of a home and make
Remember when the laundry room appeared to be an after thought in the home design layout? The only thing that could be more impractical than to have the washer and dryer located in the garage, sometimes detached from the house, would be to have the washer and dryer located in the dark bowels of the basement where no one wanted to go. The intent may have been to control the noise of the washer and dryer and isolate the business of running the home from the living areas of the house itself, but the end result was a room that was dark and distant from the home and not user friendly.
If you are remodeling an older home you are probably already aware that there is no real space allotted for your laundry room. As you begin your remodeling project to encompass a laundry room you need to decide what you want to use the room for.
Are you the next Martha Stewart on the block? Do you need the room to function as a work station for your craft projects? Are you looking for space to have an office to pay the bills and keep organized? Or will the laundry room be used to do repairs that require a sewing machine set up at the ready? Do you want to have a wash sink installed so you can wash delicates without putting them in the kitchen sink or bathroom sink?
When you get ready for you remodel your contractor will most likely go over exactly what you want to use the space for and will work to make your new room worth every penny to create.
If space is at a premium and you cant afford to create a new laundry room but want to expand on an existing one you may want to have the contractor install soundproof walls to make the operation of the laundry room more peaceful, especially if the laundry room is going to be located off a living room or sleeping area.
Whatever you decide to make your new improved space look like it will pay off in the end both improving the value of your home and making it more marketable down the road.
In the meantime you get to enjoy the benefits of a laundry room that doesn’t involve forging through the darkness and the night to get to.
