A well-organized laundry corner is an essential part of the home and makes daily life easier. A separate room in the kitchen, bathroom or garage, it must be functional. Here are 19 clever examples of how to create a space dedicated to laundry care.
No less than 96.2% of French households own a washing machine*. This rate of ownership shows that laundry care is a priority, but also that households want to make the task easier. A laundry room is therefore the ideal way to quickly and efficiently do the “laundry chore”. Whether you live in an apartment or a house, a small area or a large dwelling, you want a practical and functional place that makes your daily life easier.
The luckiest ones will be able to devote an entire room to it, and install appliances – washing machine, dryer. But also iron and ironing board – cleaning products and other equipment for the house: bottles of detergent, clothes racks, sorting baskets, but also vacuum cleaner, brooms, bucket, mops … To optimize the space, you can also decorate your laundry room with enough storage space and make it a multipurpose room. The goal is to have everything you need within easy reach to avoid spending too much time on it.
For the others, there are many tricks to design a corner of the bathroom, the kitchen or the garage… And make it a multifunctional place, which can also be forgotten. In need of ideas? Here are a few successful examples to inspire you and create a tailor-made laundry room.
A laundry area integrated to the kitchen
The laundry room: arranged behind sliding panels
The idea to copy: a transparent mobile partition to isolate oneself from the noise of the machines but keep a maximum of light in this small closed space.
A laundry corner hidden in the closet
The laundry area: washing machine, bottles and storage boxes are all hidden behind a full height closet door in a color matching the vanity. A simple, efficient and aesthetic solution!
The idea to copy: the pastel color, soft and refreshing, to give a contemporary breath to the bathroom.
A laundry room next to the bathroom
The laundry room: installed in a space adjacent to the room.
The idea to copy: stack the appliances so as not to clutter up the room too much, and reserve a work surface. Practical for folding the laundry as soon as it comes out of the machine.
A laundry corner that communicates with the hallway
The laundry room: this white and blue laundry room has been cleverly designed.
A laundry room in the kitchen
The laundry room: if the house is big enough, you can create a second kitchen for dirty recipes and for the laundry room! There is room to install two machines, a sink to make life easier and plenty of storage space.
The idea to copy: the touch of fluorescent decoration in this space where everything is allowed from an aesthetic point of view.
A laundry corner at the entrance of the bathroom
The laundry area: installed along a wall at the entrance to the spacious family bathroom, it is easily accessible.
Idea to copy: dare a totally white look that contrasts with the anthracite of the floor and the back wall. For a timeless style.
A laundry room behind a mirror door
The laundry room: when you don’t have enough space at home. A small corner of the closet can be enough to create a laundry room. Built in between two shelves, the washing machine is quickly forgotten. And the clean laundry quickly finds its place on the shelves once it is out of the machine.
The idea to copy: a sliding mirror door, both compact and useful to bring more light into the room.
A laundry corner in the alcove of the bathroom
The laundry room: it is cleverly installed in the alcove of the bathroom.
The idea to copy: do not install a door between the bathroom and the laundry room, to save space and simplify the circulation.
A cleverly concealed laundry room
The laundry room: located in the large shower room. It is hidden behind several thin doors perfectly adapted to the elements they hide (ironing board, vacuum cleaner, broom, etc.).
The idea to copy: the door which allows to hide also the washing machine, not always aesthetic, for a total discretion.
A laundry room in a dedicated room
The laundry room: when you can dedicate an entire room to the laundry room. You can multiply the storage space and even decorate the room accordingly.
The idea to copy: the walls painted in green, to give a natural touch and bring more light to this sometimes sad corner.
A laundry room in the hallway
The laundry room: optimized into a functional storage space, the hallway is a place of passage that is well suited to niches and other shelves, to store everything you don’t want to see lying around. Why not slip in your washing machine and ironing board?
The idea to copy: make it a multi-purpose space that allows you to store everything you don’t need all the time.
A laundry room in the loggia
The laundry room: On the rather spacious loggia, there is enough space to install a real laundry corner. Washing machine of course, but also closet, storage baskets, modular shelves. As well as a clothesline folded and stored on the side.
The idea to copy: take advantage of the humidity that will be released by the laundry to install exotic plants that appreciate this “tropical climate”!
A laundry area in the kitchen
The laundry room: Sliding doors to create a separation without encroaching too much on the kitchen, this is a good idea to create a clever and practical laundry area. Designed to give pride of place to storage, it’s ideal for gathering all your linens.
The idea to copy: some cement tiles to decorate the back wall, and bring a small decorative note to this often forgotten corner.
A laundry corner in the middle of the shower room
The laundry room: Installed between two partitions, this small laundry space allows to play with the volumes of the room. The space on the left houses the sink, while the toilet has found its place on the right side. In the center, a series of shelves offers the storage necessary for a well-organized bathroom.
The idea to copy: a royal blue wall that gives the room a real style, and almost makes you forget the laundry room by the contrast.
An all-in-one laundry room
The laundry room: fitted out in a dedicated room, this laundry room offers a multifunctional space. Dirty clothes baskets, washing machine, clothes line, storage shelves, closet… There is even a place to store the vacuum cleaner. The rest of the room offers enough space to install an ironing board without feeling cramped.
The idea to copy: Rack and pinion shelves to adjust each area to the right height and create a custom room.
A laundry room in the basement
The laundry room: installed in the basement, or in the extension of a garage, the laundry room can be given a little more space. We take advantage, as here, to emphasize the storage. Shelves, cupboards, they keep dust away and allow you to keep an orderly environment.
The idea to copy: fill up with clear plastic boxes to find your stuff in a flash.
A well-hidden laundry room
The laundry room: the laundry room can extend in depth. However, in order not to spoil the very chic room, the washing machine and products are hidden in large white cabinets.
The idea to copy: Opt for a vanity unit as deep as the closets in the laundry room. For a homogeneous and discreet layout.
A laundry room that becomes a dressing room
The laundry room: When there is no lack of space, or when part of the garage or basement can be converted. We dare to create an open laundry room adjacent to a family dressing room.
The idea to copy: interchangeable storage baskets between the laundry area and the dressing area for easy storage.
A laundry corner in the cellar
The laundry room: a well-organized room with clearly identified shelves and storage boxes.
The idea to copy: a colorful decor that sparkles so that doing laundry is not (just) a chore.
