Studies show that an average person spend more time in the laundry room than in the bathroom. Each one of us spend eight hours a week – more if you’re a mum –, collectively doing over 35 billion loads of laundry in a year. That’s quite a lot.
We spend so much time in the laundry room yet it is the most neglected part of the house – if we even treat it as a part of our home, not the room to dump dirty stuff.
Fortunately, mums are now increasingly into re-organising their laundry rooms, tidying it into beautiful and efficient havens where they attend to dirty socks and used pyjamas in one hand, and a glass of wine on the other.
A few tools and tricks can turn a tiny laundry area into a tidy working space, just like these inspiring laundry rooms. Prepare to swoon!
In sports and marketing, positioning is important. Apply that concept in doing laundry and it’s gonna be a game-changer. It is important to group appliances, tools and other needs together, better if it is all at hand’s length. That way, tasks are done faster and efficiently.
Consider positioning the washer and dryer so that they are next to each other and you can easily transfer wet clothes to the dryer.
If you have available space, you can choose to designate areas for washing, drying, folding and storage. You, then, can have more room to move.
