The laundry room is where your clothes go to get cleaned but does your laundry room really live up to the task?  Here are five fabulous ways to freshen up your laundry room work area.

Paint: Laundry rooms are often located in a dark, low-ceiling basement. Give your laundry room a make-over with a little bit of paint to brighten it up. Stick to light colours such as white or light grey. This will help bring more light to the room.

Light: Lighting can make all the difference in your laundry room. Add under-cabinet lighting or a large, overhead fixture to enhance and enlarge the space. Good lighting will also help you locate spots and stains on your laundry too, so you can pre-treat them accordingly.

Accessories that hide-away: Install a fold-away drying rack or a cabinet mounted ironing board to make better use of space. This will also help eliminate clutter in your laundry room and keep the area neat and tidy.

Counter space: Add some counter space in your laundry room to help make the sorting, folding, and dividing of laundry more efficient.

Double-up: If you have limited space in your home, make the laundry room a multi-use room by making it a home for all your household cleaning supplies too.
