[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]There are some rooms that consistently seem to cause issues for owners whether on a small scale or a large one and no matter what type of specific renovations are needed to build out a truly remarkable laundry room, a lot can go wrong if a good plan isn’t in place. A massive amount of planning, research, and following a few basic guiding tips can make a huge difference when it comes to getting the type of laundry room you not only want, but one that takes care of all your needs, as well.

Laundry room renovations are a part of life and while it’s important to have a good laundry room to keep things moving smoothly, this isn’t the easiest task to tackle. However, if you choose to take the advice of the following five tips you are far more likely to make this go smoothly.

1) Make your “Must Have” list first.

You don’t want to go into any project with a vague idea of what you want, or start looking at designs, or options that don’t provide certain benefits you demand. Whether it is the type of machine, storage space in a small area, or racks and folding stations, figure out what type of space you have and what options you have when it comes to getting all your “must have” needs.

2) Professional, DIY, or both?

Chances are unless you are a professional plumber and handyman, or married to one, that some professional work will need to be done. However, if you are exceptional and shelving and woodwork you may look for a plan where the professionals put in the machines a certain why, but you put in the actual shelves, racks, and other storage or features that you have the skills and ability to take care of.

Figure out specifically what you need professional work for and what you can conceivably handle on your own.

3) What about organization & storage?

Do you have shirts that need to air dry after being washed? Dress clothes that need to be separated from jeans and t-shirts? A folding area in the laundry space since you don’t have that anywhere else in the apartment or house? These are all really important considerations that you need to make before settling on a design and putting down the money.

4) Do some design shopping first.

An hour looking over various designs or common offerings can give you ideas that you didn’t think of but end up loving, or seeing what you think is a great design in your head but looks less impressive in pictures can help you to make a better decision before committing.

5) Have prepared questions for providers.

You’re always likely to get a better price and result when you show that you are knowledgeable and have done your homework. In addition to this, you want to make sure before any laundry room renovations begin that you and any contractors are very much on the same page.

By following these tips and doing a little bit of homework you can go a long way towards getting through the renovations without issue.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
