If you have decided to have a custom home designed for you, everything may already be planned out. Your kitchen, your bedroom, your dining area—these have all found their spaces in your custom home. Then suddenly, you remember your laundry room!

Whether you like or hate doing the laundry, you will be doing it a lot. This is why you need to make sure that you create the best laundry room to make the whole experience at least comfortable.

If you want to learn our tips for creating the best custom laundry rooms at your own home, keep reading below.


The traditional laundry room is usually in the basement of the home. However, this means a lot of effort when doing the laundry. You are already doing a chore you hate and then you have to make a lot of effort to do it.

Growing in popularity recently is placing it next to a bedroom. This will make the bringing of the clothes to the laundry room way easier. However, you must also consider the noise that the machines will be making. It is recommended that you soundproof your laundry room to be sure.


Don’t just limit your laundry room to being a laundry room. You can do more with it. For example, you can make it into a stockroom where you place old equipment or clothes for donation. You can even make it into a room for the dog to hang out.

Some people have created a hangout space in their laundry room. If the space permits, you can add a couch and a table. This will allow you to have a comfortable space while waiting for your laundry to finish.


More than just where and what is in your room is how it will look like. The layout of the room will determine how functional it is. You can customize your laundry room to have its own sink, an area for handwashing, and more.

This is very important because, at the end of the day, washing clothes is still a chore and responsibility. You need to try and come up with a layout that is both beautiful and functional. You need to be efficient with how your laundry room will work out for you.


Your laundry room does not need to be all about just laundry. Dull walls and boring colors will definitely make you feel how much of a chore doing laundry is. This is why the design and decor in your laundry room are very important.

Try to make your laundry room as fun and enjoyable as possible—go crazy with the wall decor and the wallpaper. However, you also need to make sure that the design you choose for your laundry room does not get in the way of its functionality. Laundry does not have to be a boring chore; it can both be fun and practical in various ways.


Truth is, most people do not enjoy doing their laundry and hate entering their laundry rooms. But, at the end of the day, we will have to do our laundry. However, you can always make it more fun and comfortable by creating a laundry room that will allow you to do your laundry while giving you an enjoyable experience.
