Laundry Room Renovations
Most homeowners will spend a lot of time in their laundry room so it’s important that it is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. With the right design, your newly renovated laundry room can be easier to work in and can help you to be more organized.
Our team at Refined Renos can help you tackle any questions about laundry room renovations. We’re here to help you create a laundry room that works for you and your lifestyle.
Cost of Laundry Room Renovations
On average, the cost of a laundry renovation can start at $800 and go upwards of $12,000.
The total cost of renovating a laundry room depends on several factors like the type of appliances that are chosen, installation of power and water lines, and installation of custom storage and cabinets.
With Refined Renos, we can help you incorporate some cost-effective laundry room renovation ideas. We will work with you to brainstorm your design and layout, set a budget, and provide you with a detailed estimate.
Location of Laundry Room
A number of factors should be considered before you begin your laundry room renovation. Where in the home you decide to place your laundry room is another important question.
If the location of your new laundry room does not have existing power, ventilation, or water lines, more work will be required to ensure that the space can accommodate a washing machine and dryer.
Power and Plumbing Work
Washing machines and dryers need their own plumbing and power sources to operate. Depending on whether your home runs on gas or electricity, you may need additional electrical wiring or gas lines installed in your laundry room. This additional installation will increase the cost of your laundry room renovation. And if you add a sink, additional plumbing may be required to use this fixture.
Type of Appliances
With so many different types of washers and dryers available today, choosing the right one for your laundry room can seem like a daunting task.
The first thing you need to know is whether you need a gas or electric dryer – gas dryers require a gas line while an electric dryer needs its own circuit.
You also have to choose between a front-loading or top-loading machine. A front-loading machine is more costly than a top-loading machine, but it’s typically more efficient.
Energy star ratings can help you find a high-efficiency model. Front-loading machines are easier to stack and when placed beside each other, they can make room for a countertop.
Ultimately, the type of appliances you choose will influence the overall design and layout of your new laundry room.
Storage and Cabinetry
Having enough storage space in your laundry room is essential to any home. Cabinet styles come in a wide variety of different sizes, colors, and designs.
Depending on the style of cabinets you select, adding custom storage and cabinets can cost anywhere from $250 and go upwards of $2000.
Refined Renos are experts in storage and cabinetry installation, and can help you choose the right cabinets for your next laundry room renovation.
We provide custom storage solutions in addition to closets and vanities that will compliment your laundry room.
