In today’s age of HGTV, home updating shows, and the cascade of DIY programs, the laundry room has finally come out of the dark shadows and become a room that homeowners consider a vital part of their everyday life. More and more home contractors are placing the laundry room on the main living levels rather than in the basement which requires quite a bit of hiking of laundry baskets up and down the stairs. Homeowners are getting creative in the design and décor of their laundry rooms, and that means that paint for your laundry room update is a major consideration, too.
One of the first decisions when embarking on your laundry room update is the color scheme that you may want to use. Some homeowners keep it clean and simple with a white background and white appliances, while others like to go a little bolder and have a splash of color on a main wall. Reds are great to punch it up a notch, while lighter blues and greens can create a mellow look for your laundry room. Talk to the color consultants at Jerry Enos Painting about the mood you want to create.
Laundry rooms are all about organizing the mounds of clothes that will be visiting this room on a daily basis. Check out the multitude of baskets, bins, and storage units that can keep your laundry room organized. Choose bins that coordinate with the color you have chosen for the walls. Consider cubbies and hideaway closets that can store all the cleaning supplies, hangers, and the all-important iron.
Homeowners have a unique opportunity when updating their laundry room to take advantage of the tax rebates and incentives offered for energy and water-saving appliances. In addition to choosing ENERGY Star appliances, there are a wide assortment of colors from which to choose. Work with your color consultant to coordinate a complimentary color to your wall paint.
Laundry rooms have come a long way since they were purposely hidden away in the basements. Bring your laundry room into this century with a bright and fresh look. Call Jerry Enos Painting at 978-546-6843, or visit our website to get started on your update today.
