Few people embrace doing laundry. Try as we might to make it fun, this is one of these jobs we would rather not do. It should come as no surprise, then, that most of us don’t make much time in our lives for this thankless task. Instead, we spare ten minutes to shove the washing in once our drawers are empty. And, we fit the washing machine wherever it will go.
In truth, though, a fast-track laundry setup is not going to improve this job. In fact, not thinking about where you put your washing machine could make things harder. That’s why we’re here to suggest taking your laundry down below. Basement laundry rooms are nothing new, but laundry haters rarely think of making this move. Is it really worth the effort?
Yes! There are fantastic benefits to basement-based laundry rooms. Of course, you can’t just stick a washing machine in any old basement. For one, you need to focus on ventilation for all those wet clothes. It’s also essential to take care of waterproofing, so your machines stay safe. Luckily, all you need to do is call Helitech today today to take care of that kind of thing. Then, with the technicalities out of the way, you can kick back and enjoy the following unlikely benefits.
We had to start with this, didn’t we? The single worst thing about laundry day is the noise your machine makes. This is the main reason we put the task off for so long. If you fancy a day of quiet, laundry isn’t an option. At least, it wasn’t until you took things to the basement. Admittedly, there may still be a few bumps and bangs. But, that won’t be anything compared to the noise you get right now. Instead, you can stick a load on and barely have to hear your machine at all. You could even put laundry on when your kids are still asleep. It’s the absolute dream!
A separate space
Taking laundry to the basement also provides you with a separate space for the task. And, that means you can do everything possible to improve this horrible chore. You can install music speakers, set up different color stations, and generally make your life easier. Cramped laundry conditions don’t allow for these benefits. But, there’s plenty of room for them in your basement!
The chance to walk away
Let’s be honest; seeing the washing machine the moment you enter your kitchen is never nice. It’s like a continual reminder of the task you eternally avoid. No one wants that first thing in the morning. By comparison, a basement laundry room allows you to shut the door on that responsibility. In fact, you won’t even need to think about washing unless you open the basement door. You might want to install a laundry day to make sure you don’t forget altogether, of course. But, aside from that, you can put laundry to the back of your mind at last.
