Laundry room ideas
Today, the desire to organize a laundry at home is becoming an increasingly popular business idea. But in most cases, laundry can be arranged at the house as antediluvian laundry room. Ignored any design ideas. Everything is because the room is most often located either in the far corner of the house or in the basement, and then just next to the garage.
But a well-designed Laundry can be a guarantee that it will look neat, spacious and even beautiful. Despite the fact that a beautiful design is completely dependent on available space, nevertheless even the most small laundry room can look nice and neat.
Ergonomic use of space
Starting from the dimensions of the room, it’s important to use ergonomically and structurally. The most important thing to the washing machine was located conveniently and reliably. The room should be easily accessible to all family members. Don’t buy to work too large of the dryer and washing machine, this design of laundry will look heavy and overloaded.
Storage area for laundry is of paramount importance. Here will be stored all the clothes intended to be washed. Ideally, if the Laundry at home is planned for a large amount of work, the storage area is better to build in a utility room. Otherwise, use the storage lockers and large laundry baskets. Laundry room where dirty clothes lying on the floor or scattered on the corners will look shabby and untidy. Even if containers for clothes to buy several, the room will be look more beautiful and neat.
The décor of the room
Although laundry is rarely used by guests, it doesn’t mean you can ignore the decor. The room is safely possible to decorate in any style. The walls can be painted a bright water-resistant paint. To improve the appearance of the laundry room, the walls also can be sticked beautiful and high quality wallpapers. At the time when you are going on vacation, for machines and tumble dryers you can make the protective covers from dust. Make sure that plugs and sockets were located at a sufficient height from the floor. Beyond the reach of the spray from the water.
Drying and ironing area
If you decided to organize your home laundry room, it makes no sense to iron and dry clothes in the other rooms of your home. Select and organize an area for Ironing and drying clothes in the laundry room. Despite the fact that you will use to operate the dryer, there’s a lot of laundry that you will have to dry by hanging over a floor or over the bath. A great option in this case — using plastic hangers.
Even if your laundry room has a window that lets in enough sunlight, it is still appropriate to use a combination of natural and additional artificial lighting. You can hang wall or ceiling lights that will evenly illuminate the entire space laundry. Spend a lot of money not necessarily, but in any case, the lighting should be bright and pleasant. So you will be able to perform your daily duties with ease.
In addition to the above ideas to design a laundry room, you can realize your own ideas. But the most important thing that your laundry room was always clean. Bring it up every time after shutdown. Otherwise, your business idea will soon turn into a dirty laundry room. Which you also don’t want to go.

Make repairs in the room, and it turns out that in a hostel you can live beautifully and comfortably. Following some tips is easy and inexpensive to change the design of the dorm room, turning it into a modern and comfortable dwelling.

The main element of the interior of the room is, of course, the bed. So you need to try to make it look as best as possible. Experiment, picking up her blanket, linens. An important role here can play pillows, nicely matched to a General style and a soft blanket, which can hide in the cold night, and cover with them a bed.

The main thing – that these decorations aren’t distracting from the overall design style of dorm room. Don’t forget about the various accessories with which you can create an original interior design dorm room. However, it should be guided by a sense of proportion.
To save space in small rooms, you can purchase a furniture – transformer. Putting in the room folding table or chair-bed, folding sofa or folding chairs, you have so needed one to two meters of free space. To create a room design in the family residence all the previous advice is also acceptable. The walls in the room should be light, they will visually enlarge the space. On the floor you can put linoleum or even hardwood. If you need to make room for the nursery, into the niche (if any) is better to place the wardrobe. And for the child to put a bunk bed.
Seriously going to create a new design to your dorm room, it is possible to transform it into a cozy home.
Students from other cities often have to live in the dorm for several years, and not only students, adults that moved to another city also initially have to live in the hostel business. And how many will live, nobody knows. Therefore the question is – whether to do the repair or not. To live in a room where the wallpaper is torn, no one ten years had nothing painted, and not very nice. Hunting, on the contrary, to come home from school or work, go into the room, and I was happy. But to do the smart repair also makes no sense. Many are trying to stay long in the hostel. Therefore, as a minimum you will need to hang new wallpaper, paint the battery and door and ceiling.
Repair is best to start at the weekend, a day or two. As not the fact that you will get it all done in one day. Take a piece of paper and start to plan your future new room. Ideally, if you learn some program design and bring your dream to life to start there.
You can fantasize yourself or to consult a specialist. Once you’ve decided what and where you will stand, that is made up of a room, you can move to action.
To start, you need to make all of the furniture out of the room, if this is not possible, you can buy the film and enjoyed it all.
Then as much as possible to release the walls, remove the plaster, tear off the wallpaper, if you want to remove the doors and so on.
If you have a large room and you want to make it two rooms, e.g. the bedroom and kitchen, you can put a partition interior. Further, it is desirable to have outlets, because the few who comes to them hands and they are so old and rusty. Than later, you will have electrical outlets, the possibility of sunbathing less.
If your room will have a landline phone, TV cable and Internet, but it’s time to lay another cable. With a great desire, you can touch up the walls – cover them with primer, putty and plaster. If possible, you can replace the old window with the new. You must then begin to paint the walls and ceiling. Further, the flooring to lay, wallpaper. To engage in the installation of baseboards. Install switches and sockets. To hang the lights. And, of course, don’t forget about the trash – take out the trash. And arrange the furniture.
The order of repair is basically not changed, it is possible to delete from the list any item. For example, if you don’t want to put a partition or wall plastering. If the order is changed, it may raise unnecessary garbage, and it is possible that some points do and have to redo it again.
Thus, like a dorm room, but how much will kill time and effort. No need to be sorry or not to finish something, let it all be done with the mind, than to come home and look at these horrible walls and I’m afraid of electrical wiring. If you are going to live in the room five years so, how are the students from the first to the fifth year, then the perfect renovation in the early years will not hurt. But then, coming from school, eyes will rejoice, and will be pleased to be in the room.
The first task which confronts us visually enlarge the space. For this purpose you should use a bright wallpaper and clean a large floor. If the ceilings are low, choose a ceiling tile with a small figure, the height of the walls will visually increase. No dark or bulky items. Not suitable for bright or matte shades.
A relaxation area
After the wallpaper is glued, floor, and ceiling made, the second aim is the division of land into small areas. Where everything comes to rest, place the bed, it is desirable that it can be folded into a neat seat. So will be the day to welcome guests and in the evening to put her to sleep. The perfect solution – a folding sofa. Beside the furniture includes bedside tables. If you have not yet bought it, that is glossy and bright colors. More to the lounge is a cupboard for clothes. When selecting this element of the interior is better to stay on the sliding doors with the presence of the mezzanine: the place is save and convenient. On the considered area to place the TV. Preferably with an LCD screen. It’s not only stylish to fit into any design of a small dorm room, but will allow you to save extra space. It is desirable that it’s visible from any seat in the room.
This zone should be the smallest. Here it is necessary to put a computer desk and chair. You can place a small hinged shelf to stack her books. If necessary, place a chandelier and another nightstand. The design of the dorm room. The kitchen area is a small area of the room consists of a table with chairs and a small refrigerator.

In no case don’t buy a floor because it will reduce the clutter of the space of the already narrow room. You also don’t want to?
The final stage – the extra decorations to achieve the desired interior. On the wall to hang a beautiful but not bulky picture or flowers. On the windows host plants. On the floor lay a carpet of bright colors, it will give a small room a little peace of mind.

Spacious baby room can be divided into zones. It must be a sleeping place, a work or study area, a place for rest and play. This also is to enter the storage system and a sports area (wall bars, punching bag, or just a place where you can jump rope, darts, spin the hoop). And each zone should be safe, well thought-out. That this should be children’s own hands, in the photo you will see that it’s doable.
Finish a child’s room
Have you decided to paste over the wall wallpaper or paint them the finish color choose neutral, natural. Bright, acid colors can affect the mood and even on his mind. By that neutral palette is fertile ground for decorations child’s own hands.
Our children have favorite fairy-tale characters, cartoon characters. Teenagers like city views, city streets, architecture, sky and light. On one of the walls, you can stick a photo with their image. For other walls, choose wallpaper with a pattern that won’t get bored soon: butterflies, plants, soft machine, plush toy. Remember, they serve as a background for the desktop and not have to divert attention to himself.

In the nursery should be light. Therefore, light sources should be plenty.
This central lamp or chandelier that fits the style of the room, and a night light or a sconce near the bed with soft light, and the lamp in the working area.
If there is a guest room or play area, there also should put a floor lamp. It must be sustainable with a closed canopy. Then if he accidentally falls, broken light bulb will remain inside and not sleep enough shards to the outside.
If you listened to our advice and made the room in neutral colours, the furniture can be and bright, acidic. With its help it is possible to do in one room, the bedroom, study and living room:

- Furniture should be light and varying in height, consisting of separate modules. If necessary, you can always change the layout by moving the wardrobe or chest of drawers. The clothes, the rollers can be stored in the closet with rattan panels. Wardrobe space is a little, but it is very roomy.
- In the work area place a table, which would be in addition to the books and puzzles would fit computer peripherals. Fortunately, now you can choose a reliable table with different prefixes, extensions for monitor, scanner, printer, etc. And don’t forget about the comfortable, ergonomic chair. Stool from the kitchen will not work.
