How to create a laundry room at home in a small space


Let's start by giving you a dispassionate advice: if you are building a house, absolutely leave a place within the project, even a small one, to be used as a laundry area. It is an area that always guarantees maximum efficiency when doing laundry, it combines all the necessary appliances such as washing machine, dryer, iron (horizontal or vertical steam) in one place allowing you to facilitate each phase up to folding.

This obviously is not possible when you find yourself having to create this area inside a house that does not have it and in which, perhaps, there is not even enough space.

We must therefore try to organize all the elements in the best possible way to try to fit everything in a small space but without giving up this convenience.

The bathroom and the kitchen are the places that are usually preferred to accommodate washing machines and dryers, thanks to the ease of connection of the systems.

The latter occupy almost 1 square meters of surface, which is why it is advisable to opt for a piece of furniture that can accommodate the two appliances stacked one on top of the other, so as to be able to recover some space to possibly insert a piece of furniture with shelves on the side and keep all products such as detergents, stain removers, fabric softeners, etc. in order

If, on the other hand, you have an anteroom or a hallway, you can easily use them to create the laundry room.

They are more discreet places, where the disorder of the laundry can remain more isolated and less visible than the kitchen and the bathroom or other more frequented corners of the house and where guests are usually welcomed.

If you are lucky enough to be able to dedicate an entire room, then you can indulge yourself with all the possible solutions to make it as comfortable as possible.

Here then we can include a sink for hand washing the garments or create an entire area for ironing.

Obviously, in addition to comfort, the eye also wants its part, which is why we offer below some solutions proposed by Birex to inspire you in choosing your next laundry cabinet
