Renovating your house in Holt or Grand Ledge Michigan? Laundry rooms are often overlooked and need updating. Often placed in popular areas of a home, the washer and dryer is usually located upstairs on the second floor, in the basement, off to the bathroom, next to the kitchen or in the garage. Are you a first time home seller? If you want to sell your Lansing home, try thinking about how to utilize your laundry space.
Is the room currently too small? First, do you have enough room to fit a stackable washer and dryer? Depending on the style of your house, whether it is a Bi Level, Tri-level, Quad, Cape Cod, or two story, this can make a difference as to how much renovation needs to be completed. For instance, Bi-Level homes can be a bit challenging to renovate because the rooms are often smaller like a “galley” hallway or open area rather than an actual room. In this case, use this opportunity to buy a stackable LG or Samsung washer and dryer from Home Depot or Best Buy in Okemos, and Lowe’s on Saginaw in Eaton County. You may also want to buy a small or narrow cabinet or shelving unit from IKEA in Canton MI (Detroit area).
Another suggestion is to replace worn or dated curtains on the windows. Rip out accordion doors that conceal the laundry room, these types of doors are often found in older 1960’s or 1970’s homes. Top home improvement stores in Greater Lansing and Clinton County have ideal replacement doors that can make your dream home look modern and updated.
If you have extra space, install a counter-top or build shelves to store cleaning supplies. To stay organized, add baskets or storage cubes from Dewitt Meijer or Walmart in Saint Johns or Charlotte MI. Paint over the old flower wallpaper and use neutral tones. Make it a fun activity with family and kids. Have your children decorate their own bedroom with school artwork or picture frames from Hobby Lobby.
