A well-designed laundry room (and some good tunes) makes the job just a little easier
The efficient laundry room requires more than just good appliances. Perhaps that’s why Whirlpool enlisted the help of Clare Kumar, professional organizer, to design what it calls an "intuitive” laundry room (see example above).
Here are a few tips from Kumar:
Create an efficient layout with enough counter space to have a prep station for laundry products, and to serve as a folding surface when needed.
Use under-counter space to store hampers, and add shelves or baskets for supplies
Whirlpool Duet laundry pair (see pic below) also has some features that will save you time and trouble, including a “sixth sense” technology that measures the size of each load to determine how much water and detergent is needed, a built-in fan that tumbles wet clothing for up to 16 hours, and an anti-vibration/noise feature. The set comes in white, red and silver. Prices start at about $2,500.
