So if need help with deciding where you should do your laundry, then keep reading to find out why the garage might be the perfect spot.

Let’s start with why the garage might the right place for your laundry home. Some people prefer to keep the washer and dryer in the most convenient spot possible, like close to the master bedroom or near the kitchen, where it is in the center of the house and easily accessible. However, some homes don’t have a spare room in the house to put the washer and dryer in so the garage becomes the best option. But there are actually perks to making the garage the laundry spot instead of a room in the house, like the concrete flooring in the garage that won’t get damaged from water or wet and dirty clothes, more storage space, the ability to keep some chemical products away from children in the house, hiding the laundry room from guests, and extra room for folding, ironing, and such.

So here’s what you need to do to make the perfect laundry room. You first need to make sure that you have enough space for the washer and dryer, preferably against the same wall and they need to have access to water and electricity. Most garages have a hookup for water so this shouldn’t be much of a problem. The first step is to hook up the appliances and make sure everything is working properly, but make sure you clean the area properly so that the space feels nicer and more organized.

Next, take the time to make it a functional laundry room with everything you might need. Put up some shelves to put up all the detergents and products you use, grab a table or add a waist high shelf close by where you can fold laundry, keep piles of clothing, or even do your ironing. Make sure that the space is well organized, with baskets for clothing, maybe a clothesline for hanging things that can’t be dried, an iron stored away properly, with everything in its proper place.

Once you have all the functional stuff taken care of, don’t forget to make the area pleasant since you’ll probably be spending a lot of time in there. Give the garage or at least the area where the laundry room will be a new coat of paint, add some decor or style with your organizing items, add some nice lighting, put up some art or photos, and make sure you have a way to regulate the temperature so that you are comfortable in there whatever the season.

The most important thing to check and double check is that you take every safety precaution necessary, like ventilation, heat, and water leaking anywhere. We recommend calling a professional to have the washer and dryer installed for you and to make sure that everything is working safely.
