It is difficult to overstate the case for quality furniture in a house, though some rooms are more utilitarian in nature and therefore need than others in this regard. A prime example of this is the laundry room, a rarely seen stop on most home tours, but still a part of the house that can be improved with the the purchase of proper furniture, in this case proper laundry room furniture. That certainly begs the question: what is laundry room furniture?
Due to the aforementioned utilitarian nature of the laundry room cabinetry, the vast majority of furniture that can be accurately classified as as laundry room furniture have some functionality or serve some purpose related to the washing and drying of linens and clothes. There are cabinets, sorting baskets, laundry cradles and even fold out or removable ironing boards. Each piece of laundry room furniture is usually designed for a single yet important purpose, and it is important to at least know what should be located in, on or near any given piece of laundry room furniture in order to give the appearance of at least knowing how a well-run laundry room is supposed to work.
Cabinets are perhaps the easiest piece of laundry room furniture to buy as there are limits on physical size in most laundry rooms that will certainly whittle the selection down to a handful of options in any given store, but there is more to cabinets than meets the eye. We once saw a option to have a reclining massage chair in a laundry room which was an idea we loved! Many prefer to use their laundry room as a storage site for all of their cleaning equipment, including their vacuums, brooms and mops. This may be due to the fact that laundry rooms are not often visited by those not planning on using them, and thus keeping less desirable yet commonly used tools in the laundry room makes sense. It is therefore important to select cabinets with large open spaces at the bottom, or modular shelving systems that will permit this. Another great thing to check out is this this Bosch dryer review if you are thinking about putting new appliances in your laundry room. Store everything from brooms and dustpans here, but do not store chemicals of any kind in the bottom. If anything, chemicals belong on the top shelf as far from children and pets as possible, even if none reside within the house; one never knows who will be coming to dinner next week.
Shelves on top of the laundry machine(s) are also an important part of any laundry room furniture set. These shelves should be large and sturdy enough to hold sorting baskets which allow one to easily and effectively sort their loads. Laundry cradles and even hampers should be placed next to the washer, which should be on the far side of the laundry room from where the ironing board and iron are stored. This is double true for fold-out ironing boards.
There are plenty of options to choose from in the realm of laundry room furniture, so consumers are advised to look long and hard before making purchases.
