20 modern laundry rooms – practical design ideas and tips

Every modern person needs fresh, fragrant, clean clothes that are properly sorted in their closet. To ensure that this does not remain a dream, interior designers have developed practical design ideas for the modern laundry room at home. But if you don’t have that much space for an extra washroom, the experts also suggest space-saving solutions and show us how we can design just one washroom in the city apartment. Both variants are just as good, it just depends on the space available. The most important thing when designing this space is planning it. That means, in the city apartment or in your own house, you have to designate a space especially for this purpose and then think about the appropriate equipment. What should the modern laundry room contain, you would ask yourself. In the next few lines we try to give you a satisfactory answer!

You can also design small rooms as a laundry room

  1. Determine a suitable room for the laundry room

We have already indicated that the space for the modern laundry room is crucial for the entire room design and equipment. Choose a room where there is no threshold. It would of course be desirable that you have a large enough area so that you can easily place all the necessary washing devices and cupboards there. In the best case scenario, you can install all of these or have them installed and in this way secure enough running surface. In addition, you should also think about the lighting in the laundry room. Enough natural light that floods the whole room is the ideal case. But if you are setting up a small laundry room in a room without a window, then you need to include the lighting in the planning. Good and safe electrical wiring is particularly important in any modern laundry room, so think about it early on. In many apartments and houses, the rooms are supplied with gas pipes in case you want to use gas instead of electricity for the washing machines. The plus point here is that the first variant is cheaper.

  1. The interior design

Pay enough attention to the interior design of your laundry room so that you have a modern and friendly washing room for years to come. Paint the walls in white or a light, neutral color according to your taste. This is particularly recommended in small rooms, because the light colors also make the small laundry room look wider and more spacious. Then you should also think of a suitable floor covering. We recommend the tiled floor here so that you don’t have any problems with moisture and water droplets.

  1. Equipment of the modern laundry room

To set up a truly modern laundry room, you need modern washing devices, practical cabinets and other accessories. In the specialty shops you will find a wide range of modern washing machines. These are often combined with a dryer. Make your choice only after you are well informed. First, place the washing devices and supply them with water and electricity. Only then can you think of built-in cabinets or a vanity unit with a sink. The latter are useful if you have enough free space and can afford it. We leave the decision to you! The available storage space is particularly important in any modern laundry room. Top and bottom cabinets and wall shelves are a must-have anywhere. For the very practical, we can also recommend a foldable ironing table or an entire ironing station.

  1. Integrated washing area

Don’t worry if you can’t afford an extra room to wash up. We all know the modern apartments in the big city and know that they are not exactly spacious. That is why there are inexpensive, space-saving solutions. You can integrate a modern washing area in your kitchen or bathroom. Either way, you wouldn’t be wrong. Modern furnishings, top equipment and a chic interior design are the keys to success here!
