The laundry room is traditionally seen as belonging in the basement. However, not every home is laid out that way. In some cases, you might not even be able to have a basement. It all depends on zoning regulations and the home’s location – for instance, it doesn’t make sense to have a basement in an area prone to heavy flooding. Did you know that it’s possible to have the laundry room on the main level of your house? It will take some creative home remodeling efforts, but it can be done! Come along with us as we think outside the box!
It Is Far More Accessible That Way
Universal design is a crucial element of modern home design. Contemporary home remodeling techniques emphasize accessibility for everyone – whether they are retiring in place or have limited mobility. Therefore, having a laundry room on the main floor is far more accessible than one tucked away in the basement or upstairs. Multi-tasking also becomes much easier. That way, bouncing between the kitchen, the laundry room, and the family room means you won’t miss out on fun conversations or meaningful memories.
Newer Machines Keep the Noise Down
Even though your aging washer and dryer still run, you’ll achieve better results with newer machines. Not only are they quieter (because they won’t “dance” across the floor), but they also use less water. They’re also much more energy efficient. Washing machines and dryers are quieter these days, but there’s still going to be some noise. The only difference is that it won’t be as obnoxious. This means you can run the laundry at any time of the day or night, and you won’t wake anyone up or bother them when they’re trying to read or study.
You’ll Save Some Cool Cash
Remodeling or renovating your home can fray the ends of your budget. Did you know that when you place your laundry room on the main level of your home, you save some money? It’s true – think of what you can do with that extra money – perhaps throw it towards a vacation fund?
