Of course, the title thus formulated in our contribution today is meant to be very provocative. If you can afford a modern laundry, you just have one. It's not just about financial opportunities, but also about space and space. We all know how limited living space is in most big city apartments. But if you want to move into a new apartment or build a house on the outskirts, it would be a good idea to include a room with a very practical function in the design concept. We want to give you some design ideas for your laundry room set up!
A small room with a practical function
- Choose a suitable room for your laundry room
You do not need a large room for a modern laundry room, but it's meant to be just for that purpose. In advance, you have to think carefully about how you want to use every square meter there. The laundry room can be an integrated part of another room and hidden behind sliding doors. There you must still have the necessary connections for your equipment, water pipe system and possibly even plan a sink. If you have enough space, we can only recommend that you provide a cupboard for the washing and hygiene products. And what better way for you to hang your laundry after the wash or get it directly into the dryer? Depending on your preferences, you might need a drying rack in your laundry room. Plan down to the smallest detail so that you can use every area in the available space properly. And do not forget: this room must also be cleaned. Actually, the laundry room must always be clean and well-organized. To make that claim, you can incorporate a tiled floor into the concept, tiled walls and a closet system where you can store the folded laundry and much more. When designing your room, focus on bright colors, which also make the small room visually larger!

Plan your modern laundry room down to the smallest detail
- Cleverly place the necessary equipment
This is especially important in the laundry room the appliances (washer, dryer) must be placed so that you can easily perform all operations. A distance between the washer and dryer is not desirable because the already washed laundry may need to be hung, but rather get into the dryer immediately. Positioning next to each other is the best option. Stackable arrangement would also be possible, this is preferred by some homeowners, because so you can definitely save space. Which option works better for you, you have to decide depending on the available space. To a modern laundry room equipment still include work surfaces, shelves, at least a closet, so that the contemporary housewife does not waste time washing. If you have enough space, you also have an ironing board integrated there, because washing and ironing go hand in hand.

- Containers, baskets and other accessories
When designing a laundry chamber, it is important to have enough space in front of the machines to make each process easy. Baskets or other laundry containers are a must, but they should be out of the way and should not bother you as you pass by. Drawers in the cupboard and other shelves for the detergents or preparations for cleaning must also be provided. And as we mentioned earlier, you can play it safe and place a clotheshorse or have hangers on a ledge. They are always useful in a contemporary laundry room.
