Small but Functional Laundry Room Designs

To create a small but functional laundry rooms, you need your core requirements. A space to keep your washing machine (or dryer if you have one), a sink to wash the delicate clothes, a space for storage of detergents and a little bit of leg room for all the loading and unloading. If you opt for front loading washing machines (and dryers), you have the option of converting the tops to counters for all your folding and sorting which will help keep you organised.

Adding in a rack for drying and some under cupboard lighting makes for a great design addition to your functional laundry room. The lighting will help you spot those stains for some spot cleaning!
