Bathroom and laundry makeover design trends 2019

If there’s one thing we can all perhaps agree upon is that the laundry can be an uninviting cold space that’s associated with chores, washing and storage.

Unlike your bathroom, it was a room that didn’t require much attention when building or renovating because it didn’t add much value to your property.

But the times have changed.

We discover how to turn your laundry into a calm, multipurpose and functional space that takes the stress out washing.

With clever storage, energy-efficient appliances, beautiful design and layout we show you how to transform your laundry from a dungeon into an oasis.

Here are the top 5 laundry design trends for 2019.


European inspired laundries

A European laundry is a style most commonly found in smaller homes, including apartments, townhouses, units and older homes. It involves concealing all your laundry needs and requirements behind closed doors to create more space without sacrificing functionality or aesthetics.

A European laundry will typically consist of a washer, dryer, laundry sink, bench space, storage space, and can even allow for an ironing bench and broom closet. It allows you to borrow space from other living areas without being visibly seen and is the perfect layout for those looking to save space in smaller properties.


Maximise your space with a Mudroom Laundry

A Mudroom laundry is a style that incorporates a larger space to create a multipurpose utility area for storage, washing, drying and more. It has been designed in a way that allows for all your laundry needs to be right at your fingertips.

More commonly found in Australia and America, a mudroom laundry is a one stop shop that contains all your laundry essentials such as a washer, dryer, plenty of storage space and a benchtop.

But it also offers additional bonuses including airing cupboards to store linen, cabinets to store cleaning products and appliances, a rack to hang clothing and even a place for shoes. Larger sized rooms can even be seen with bench seating, a shower and a pet bathing station.

However, there is a downfall to all this storage space, as it quickly becomes a dumping ground for everyday living items including dirty clothing, shoes, bags, hats and keys.


Smarter, energy efficient appliances

Have you ever decided to handwash smaller amounts of clothing instead of using the washer because it uses too much water? Or skipped using the dryer to save on energy?

With new innovative designs, laundry appliances are smarter, more energy efficient and multifunctional. You can say goodbye to handwashing with smart washers now including a hand wash function that offers better clothes care and optimum energy efficiency, ultra-delicate programs for silks and lace, and gentle wool cycles for knits and wool suit jackets.

New machines from Fisher & Paykel also offer much faster wash cycles, with some machines taking less than an hour to complete. Time saver options activate a special temperature profile and unique tumble sequence to speed up the process whilst taking care of your clothes.

Smarter technologies also enable WiFi connectivity allowing you to remotely access your washer or dryer from your smartphone. This means you could start the washing on your way home from work and have it ready to go once you arrive.

New innovative technology has been designed to help you save on costs and to make your life easier, giving you back time for the more important things in life.


Design continuity

Create a more consistent feel throughout your home by using the same materials and finishes used in your kitchen. This can include using the same stone you used for your kitchen bench top for the laundry benchtop or using similar style of cabinetry. If you want to add a touch of individualism you can incorporate a feature tile wall that adds a 3D dimension to the room.


Make a statement with your laundry

Long gone are the days of a boring, dull and uninviting laundry room. Inject a little more life and make a statement with visual impact and warmth. Consider the following style options:

  • Create a stunning feature wall using 3 dimensional patterned or embossed tiles for visual impact that’s eye catching and elegant without going over the top.
  • Maintain a neutral palette and use natural materials such as quartz, stone and hardwood benchtops, and hardwood cabinetry to achieve a modern look. Timber finishes bring warmth to a cold room.
  • Black or white sinks and gooseneck mixes gives you that modern farmhouse style as opposed to your stock standard stainless steel sinks.
  • Drying cupboards and a hanging line will add convenience to your laundry.
    Island benches are the new designer feature that provides extra bench space to fill any voids in a large room.
  • Black, white, grey and timber are now popular choices to match existing colour scapes in the kitchen and bathroom.
  • Indoor plants are all the craze and add colour and life into a dull room.
