Famous composer Gioachino Rossini once said, “Give me a laundry list and I’ll set it to music.” Can you say with such confidence that, no matter what part of your house you are decorating, you can still ensure it turns out to be one of the most stylish corners of your home? What about if that space is a utility room?

You most certainly can! And we are going to help you in this, too. If you are wondering about where to place your washing machine and efficiently perform your household laundry jobs, then these inspirational tips we are sharing with you today will be beyond helpful!

Designated utility room

Casa Belgrano built a separate utility room and kept their washing machine in there. Courtesy of the large windows, the room is deluded with natural light. Exhaust and ceiling fans drive away any lingering odour and help to quickly dry up the area. 

The colour scheme, made prominent by white, grey and laminated wood texture, gives it a commendable look. With a utility room like this in your basement, garden shed or any other place in your home, storing your washing machine becomes easy.

Washing machine in the bathroom

Storing a washing machine in the bathroom is preferred by many, as it already has electrical and plumbing facilities in place. 

This beautiful bathroom cabinet helps to neatly organise everything including the washing machine. The cabinet is colour coordinated with the other areas of the bathroom, which gives it an added charm.

In the kitchen

The owners of this small apartment, with a living area of only 65 square metres, stored their washing machine in the kitchen. Though enclosed within the kitchen, a separate storage space has been built to place the washing machine. This prevented causing any sense of clutter in a small area.

Vibrant orange accents infuse a cheerful note in the room. Glossy cabinet doors and worktops – both for the utility room and kitchen – introduce a variety in texture.

Washing machine in the dressing room

Aledoconcept planned a dressing room with separate space for the washing machine. En suite dressing rooms with access to the water supply can use this mechanism for storing the machine. The use of understated colours gives this dressing room a chic and contemporary makeover.

In an empty corner

The inhabitants of this minimalist St Petersburg apartment found an empty corner close the kitchen to store their washing machine. 

The layout of the apartment follows an open plan design. But they created a small cabin of a sort using wood and stored their washing machines inside it. In the end this became a tiny utility room within a large floating space.

In a custom cabinet

A custom built cabinet like this, made for this purpose by Elfa Deutschland Gmbh, solves the purpose of storing a washing machine. Except for when in use, the machine remains hidden behind the closed cabinet doors. 

The room housing a cabinet like this stays free of any clutter or unsightly views. Owners of small city apartments can really benefit from custom options like this.

In the enclosed terrace

This is a very novel way of storing a washing machine. When paucity of the living area is rather severe, this tactic can used to store the washing machine in an enclosed terrace, balcony or garden shed.

You can use any of these ideas to store your washing machine or try to think of something else that befits the interior of your home. Make sure to arrange for plumbing, electric wiring and drainage before attempting to convert just any space to a small utility room. 

Using these smart techniques will keep your interiors tidy and increase the style quotient of your home. But what about other cleaning tactics?
