Spring News: Luxe Laundry Rooms for 2015

Welcome Spring!

I have waited for so long to feel that wonderful rush of hope for warmer weather, sunshine, green grass, flowers and all the excitement of the new season! And so, like many of you, my excitement turns to the desire to dust off the winter and get a fresh start. If you are thinking this is an article on spring cleaning, well you are in for a surprise-it’s not!!! (I did that article last year!) This year I wanted to focus on a room that works hard to keep us clean, but can be overlooked and sometimes even put in a dark, dreary basement corner. I am speaking about the laundry room! If you guessed correctly, you win a chance to upgrade your laundry room to a new high! Of course, Ken and Sabrina at Elite would be very happy to help you design the perfect laundry room for you! After you are done, you may never want to leave, except to grab a latte and go back for another load of laundry! Enjoy your spring! -Verona Jungling

Some unique ideas for the laundry room are:


Room for Furry Friends

Pet washing station Elevate a tiled area and include a shower wand and you have the perfect place to wash your little four legged friend as soon as he/she comes in from a walk without straining your back! Brilliant! If only I had room for this idea-it would be in my own home faster than my dog! You could also incorporate a kennel or bed for fido to spend more time in here with you as you wash, dry, fold and repeat! If you have extra cupboard space, you can turn it into a comfortable dog bed. Additionally, by using stackable washer/dryer sets, you allow extra space for convenient dog showers. Let’s not forget the felines in your home. Why not incorporate the litter box into a pull out drawer! So easy to clean and accessible to your cat while “shut” and tucked out of sight! A pull-out litterbox in the laundry room ... notch allows cat easy entry, pullout makes cleaning staff happy.

Spaces to Care for Delicate Clothing

Extra drying racks

Saving money and keeping your clothes looking new two great reasons to hang up your clothes rather than throwing them in the dryer.
