In the grand scheme of interior design, the laundry can often get left behind due to its primary focus on practicality and functionality. However, there’s no reason why the modern laundry space cannot shine on its own and contribute to the overall vitality of the home.
So, perhaps it’s time to turn your tired laundry space into something to talk about. Let’s explore some ideas that’ll modernise your laundry and bring some life back into this often neglected area.
1. START WITH THE LAUNDRY SINK
The laundry sink is naturally an essential fixture. However, its aesthetic can often be overlooked due to a primary focus on practicality. Along with being durable, the laundry sink should, of course, be functional. The best way to provoke a bit of intrigue in this space is to select a laundry sink that makes an impression as well.
ABI offers a wide variety of characterful single and double laundry sinks. Choose from the sophistication of the Ohelu and Seba single sinks to the handsome elegance of the Henley Double Fluted Farmhouse Sink, Belfast Brass Farmhouse, or the black granite Vera Double Sink. Any of these space transforming sinks will help to evolve your laundry. You can explore the entire range here.
2. REDEFINE YOUR TAPWARE
Conventional chrome is sometimes perceived to be the only way to go when selecting laundry tapware. It’s a tried and tested choice that works wonders, and you have that built-in durability too. However, if you want to make a statement in your modern laundry, thinking out of the box can be rewarding. It’s time to consider the potential of coloured tapware to transform your laundry and give it the modern vitality it deserves.
ABI offers a range of contemporary coloured tapware that will inject some personality. From the golden radiance of brushed brass, the depth defining brushed gunmetal, the vintage charm of brushed copper, and the classic brushed nickel. We also range the Aura Collection that includes such distinctive colours as Almond, Flora, Posy, Clay, Solis and Dusk.
3. GET CREATIVE WITH YOUR ACCESSORIES
The secret weapon of any laundry makeover is learning to get creative with your accessories. They can help to bring a point-of-difference to functional yet otherwise forgettable items. That means considering rustic woven baskets instead of tired plastic laundry baskets, stylish towel rails that define spaces rather than simply blend in, and even sink basket wastes and washing stops that draw attention thanks to eye-opening finishes.
Why not colour coordinate your laundry accessories to add pleasing consistency to your space. Consider the reinvigorating qualities of brushed brass, brushed copper, brushed gunmetal, or matte black instead of conventional chrome.
4. PAINT THE DIFFERENCE
All too often, laundries become bland spaces because they blend into the background. Why not evoke some life into them by introducing colour to the walls to encourage some personality. A touch of green, red or yellow paint can instantly energise this space and liven your laundry.
5. REFRESH YOUR CABINETRY HANDLES
They might appear to be a minor consideration, but cabinetry handles can make all the difference to your modern laundry space. The right design can not only improve functionality but help to establish an engaging distinction.
ABI offers a selection of differently designed cabinetry handles that will provide the perfect touch to your laundry cabinets. From the Rappana Pull Handle, the Tezra Textured Cabinetry Pull, to the appealing half-moon shape of the Imes Cabinetry Pull, there are a plethora of choices that will transform your laundry.
