Step 1: The designer laundry layout
This is all about tailoring the space to your wants and needs. The ultimate laundry layout works within the available space and meets your requirements, whether it be washing capacity for a family of eight, storage for school bags and sports equipment, or enough floor space to erect an ironing board – or all of the above. “These days, laundries tend to be bigger, as they are beginning to encompass mud rooms and additional storage for our shoes, handbags and coats,” says Ashley Reed, Interior Designer at The Studio Collective. “A designer laundry is about making sure the laundry receives the attention to detail that it deserves.” The ultimate aim? “To create a calming space that you will happily spend time in,” she says.
