For most people, laundry is one of the least enjoyable household chores, but still a necessity. However, washing, drying, and folding clothes can be tricky to navigate through the wash. Here are some simple laundry Room Ideas you can take to make the washing process more intuitive and less time-consuming.
Update your washer and dryer. If your devices are around ten years old or worn out, consider newer models that will save you time and energy. This is to reduce energy bills and at the same time, make it easier to wash clothes. In particular, buy a front washing machine that uses less water, makes drying more efficient, and can wash large duvets. If you want cutting-edge technology, take a look at steam cleaners as they can provide a deeper clean by the ingress of clothing, which reduces the time it takes to operate the washer.
Maximize your space. Having a dryer and washing machine is an absolute must for laundry, but other furniture in the room can get in the way of folding, ironing, and sorting clothes. Open a space that can be explicitly used for folding, such as a table near the dryer, to encourage you to take care of your freshly washed clothes in advance. Many people find it a good idea to install a rack with hangers and shelves to store things like fabric softener, bedding, towels, delicate items, and washing powder.
Consider a different classification system for dirty clothes. Don’t get into the habit of stacking used clothes, instead arrange the baskets so that they can be pre-classified when washing? If you have a basket exclusively for whites, another for dark colors only, and another for light colors only, you can try to guess when the load is needed. It is also helpful to put the laundry in the laundry and start the process immediately.
