Squinting to read the care instructions on your new linens? Turns out you’re not the only one. Lighting is often one of the most overlooked areas when designing a laundry and finding the balance between over-lighting and under-lighting your space is crucial. “Opt for warm white lighting and make sure that you have more than one light source,” suggests Anna-Carin.
Whether you’ve got a cupboard sized nook or a converted bedroom space, cut laundry clutter by maximising your storage options. “Utilising your space doesn’t necessarily mean filling every wall with storage. I’d recommend optimising hanging space so that you have less use of the dryer by allowing room to hang things up and more space for a nice benchtop," advises Anna-Carin.
While it might seem like a bit of a splurge, Anna-Carin explains that floor heating is in fact a great ergonomic investment. “Floor heating is a great versatile investment; the subtle heat dries laundry when you hang them up and it also gets rid of that murky damp feeling.”
