Indeed, this optimism must be translated into ideas applicable to the design of a small and versatile space. So, first, let’s think about how we can gain effective space to store things. We do not want the sink to become a storage room to accumulate everything that does not fit in other areas of the house. However, we do intend to have at hand the utensils and products that we use in certain washing tasks.
Take advantage of the holes
Try to take advantage of the spaces that are usually below some of the typical appliances of this room, such as the dryer and washing machine. There are custom cabinets that will fit perfectly in these concrete holes. As we want to save, we can compose them through DIY sessions, after getting some cheap melamine boards. In this way, we can keep, for example, the cleaning products and food sacks of our pets.
Take advantage of the walls
The walls, on the other hand, are to be used, so we can resort to bars and shelves to place everything we need in a vertical position. The hangers are very practical to deposit mops, brooms, and mops. There are also double-sided velcros that stick perfectly on the walls and allow to fix all kinds of utensils.
Order with baskets
Baskets of different sizes will be very useful to separate by color the clothes that are going to be washed.
Realize all the storage space you gain by filling holes and taking advantage of vertical spaces!
Finally, you should not forget that you can change the face of this room by introducing some modifications to the tiles and the floor. You just have to get the precise materials and be willing to spend some time doing a bit of DIY!
