Organization & Storage

The foundation of your laundry room design comes down to the storage. Simple shelving may get the job done, but cabinets provide the area with a sleeker, more organized appearance. 

Cabinets and drawers provide your space with more room for your detergents, cleaning supplies, laundry appliances, and other household necessities that simple shelving cannot offer. 

Lily Ann Cabinets can help create the perfect laundry room design to include cabinetry that optimizes your space while creating a cohesive aesthetic that will fit your home’s design. All you have to do is pick the cabinet style, send us your measurements, and we will create the laundry room of your dreams!

You should also consider cabinet inserts when designing your laundry room. Cabinet inserts provide another step toward an organized laundry room without having to add shelving to the walls or take up extra cabinet space with all of your household items. 

We offer a variety of insert options depending on your specific needs, whether it be cabinet inserts or drawer inserts to keep your laundry room clean and efficient. For example, rollout shelves allow for easier access to your supplies while you’re busy with chores. Even more convenient, is a rollout caddy that is removable and can be used to both store and carry items.

Putting your waste bin out of sight is a little thing that makes a world of difference, especially if your space is limited. A sliding bin is a great way to accomplish this in a laundry room with a cabinet insert. Maximize your floor space by creating this space for your waste bin. 

Similarly, a sliding container for your hamper will make it so much easier to keep clutter out of sight in your laundry room. Having dirty clothes waiting in your laundry room is unavoidable, but this is a convenient way to keep it organized and ready to be washed. Have it ready to go in the wash in an instant, all while keeping your laundry room decluttered.

Adding Hardware & Design Elements

Once your storage has improved, other aspects of the room become easier to pinpoint. It might be adding new hardware to your sink or cabinet doors - the finishing touches that make all the difference. Or, you may want a more drastic change like flooring and backsplash!

Adding a burst of color or pattern can liven up a room like nothing else. In contrast with the rest of your laundry space, a color or pattern will make your laundry room a place you won’t mind visiting a few times per day. Backsplash and tile are great options for patterns on walls, and it allows for a very customizable look! Or, try peel-and-stick for a cheaper option with easier application and removal.
