A complete home involves many rooms other than bedrooms, bathrooms and a kitchen. One such important room where everyone spends their time is the laundry room. In earlier times not much importance was given to this room’s design and interior setting. It was considered a room only for washing equipped with a washing machine, dryer and some storage space.

Since one spends a fair amount of time in this room carrying out daily chores, it is a must to pay attention to your laundry room design.
