New Spin on Laundry Rooms

Home Builder with Javic Homes

By Missi McCombs, Javic Homes Designer

Did you know that the average household does 6-8 loads of laundry per week?  The laundry room used to be placed in a spare closet near the kitchen or in the garage.  As a custom builder in Tampa and St. Petersburg, we work with our clients to design a floor plan that has the laundry room in more practical locations, typically by the bedrooms.  And, laundry rooms today on average have more than 50 square feet of space and are filled with organizational storage, new technology, and great design.

New technology has made washers and dryers less noisy, so it is common to have a Laundry Room serve double duty. It can be paired with a mud room, home office, or craft room.  We also find that people are asking for “zones” within the laundry room.  It makes the chore of doing laundry a little less daunting if you have a place for folding, hanging clothes to dry, and ironing.  If your laundry room is in a cramped space – use the walls!  It is a big square footage saver to stack the washer and dryer or have a built-in ironing board that folds down from the wall.  Check out for ideas.

Let’s be honest, doing laundry is still a chore, but you might hate it less in an organized, bright, cheery room!

There is a clear change in the thinking of lower end homes that is bringing this home too. The upper end homes have always been on the right track. Thanks for the post...
