Laundry Renovations, Made Easy: Steps to Renovate a Laundry
by Jonny S | 05/01/2023
The laundry room is an important place in your home. It’s where you keep your washing machine, dryer, clothes racks, and pretty much everything else that has to do with laundry.
By renovating your laundry, you can get more out of the existing space and you can also make your laundry sessions easier and more comfortable. In this post, we will be looking at how can you can easily get your laundry renovation project done with Aireno.com.au. We will also list the steps that you can follow for renovating the place yourself.
Let’s get into it.
Our Laundry RenovationProcess
Here at Houseace, we help you with your laundry renovations in the following steps:
Providing a Quick and Accurate Quote: The first step in our process is giving you an accurate quote depending on your location and project. You can use the form available on our website for generating a quote easily.
Matching You with an Expert Team: After you get your quote and want to move on with the process, we help you out by matching you with an expert team for your renovation project. Our meticulous matching process makes sure that you only get in touch with the right professionals who are available in your region and are compatible with the costs and requirements specified.
Helping You Plan Your Project: Using the Houseace dashboard, you can plan your project in detail. You can chat directly with your team to get their help in deciding the exact course of action to adopt during the remodel. During the planning phase, you can specify the appliances/items that you want to have replaced/installed in your laundry as well as the paints, finishes, etc.
Helping You Schedule Your Project and Collaborate with the Team: Once the project gets started, you can track the process as the different milestones are completed. You can also actively collaborate with your team to get regular updates right from the Houseace dashboard.
Providing Safe and Secure Payment Passages: Apart from planning and managing your project, you can also make payments to your team directly from the Houseace application. The payments are carried out via secure digital channels and you don’t have to worry about anything.
The process outlined above can help in making your renovations smooth and streamlined, and it can save you a lot of hassle. But, if you want to take your project into your own hands, here are the steps that you can follow:
Create a Renovation Plan: To start your project, you first have to decide what exactly you have to renovate and remodel in your laundry. Are you looking to install a couple of fixtures and appliances, or are you looking for a complete overhaul?
Create a Budget and Project Timeline: Next up, you have to set a budget for your remodelling project as well as a realistic timeline. Setting a budget and a timeline helps you to keep the whole project organised. Plus, with an allocated budget, you can easily decide on the quality and standard of the items, appliances, and fixtures that have to be purchased.
Get the Necessary Permits: In certain places, homeowners are required to get permits from the local government office before they can get started with a renovation project. This can be a requirement if the project in question happens to be extensive and large-scale. Depending on what you’ve planned for your laundry, you may need a permit.
Other than the permits, you will also need the permission of your landlord or building management board if you happen to be in a rented home or apartment.
Prep and Gut Your Laundry: With all the groundwork done, the next thing that you have to do is gut your laundry room. Before the gutting, you have to take out everything from there and also shut off the water supply.
Mind you, a ‘gutting’ or a full-scale ‘demolition’ will be required only if your project is something of a total overhaul or total remodel. If the renovation involves, for example, just a sink unit or a couple of cabinets, then you won’t have to gut your laundry in toto.
Install the Fixtures and Appliances: After your laundry room is prepped, you can go ahead with installing the fixtures and appliances that you need. If you also want to install new floors in there, you can go right ahead.
Paint and Finalise: Once all the installations are done and the dust has settled, you can paint the walls and clean out all the mess. That’s it!
Some Tips for renovating Your Laundry
Add some good storage options. If your laundry does not have cabinets, cupboards, and shelves installed, it’s a good idea to install some of those during the remodel.
Pick a light colour for the paint and fixtures. Laundry rooms are often small and have limited space. To get the most out of it, you should take care to pick a light-shaded colour for the fixtures and the walls.
Make the place airy. If your laundry room is small, add some nice and big windows for better ventilation – even if they open to some part of your home rather than directly outside.
Go for waterproof flooring. Although you won’t exactly splash water around on the laundry floor, the place is bound to get wet at some point or the other. Having water-proof floorings like tile or vinyl is a good idea.
Hide and secure the wiring. In a laundry, you’re going to operate washing machines. And they aren’t exactly cell phone chargers. Washing machines can use a hefty amount of electricity. In a place such as a laundry, where wet clothes and items are handled perennially, it’s necessary to keep the wiring secure and hidden.
