Balconies are of particular importance today, especially for people living in urban apartments. In this sense, the balconies should be used very effectively and different functions should be added to them as much as possible. Apart from using balconies for relaxation, fresh air and enjoying the view, for example, you can also use them for a small kitchen or a small office. In addition, you can also design a laundry room to one corner of your balconies. A balcony laundry room will both reduce the load of goods in your bathroom and will be a nice place for your laundry and cleaning materials. For the purpose of building a balcony laundry room, you should consider some points. These points are applying to the vertical design, creating a laundry system and building a workplace.
1) Vertical Balcony Laundry Cabinet Design
For a balcony laundry room, you should go vertical for all decoration steps. Firstly, you should decide where you want to build your laundry room. Then, you should take some measurements to fit your laundry staff perfectly. People who have a long narrow balcony generally prefer to put the drying machine on the top of the washing machine. The remaining places can be used for the linen closet or linen press. Also, all cleaning materials, detergent, and washing agents can be put into these linen closets. If you have a large balcony, you can design your laundry room as you wish. In this regard, the most important point is the suitability of the place you allocate as a laundry room on your balcony.
2) Laundry System
As a second point, you should create a laundry system. For a useful laundry system, you can have a laundry rack even if you have a drying machine. That is why, in order to make your clothes more colorful and healthy, it will be good to be exposed to sunlight. Apart from the laundry rack, you should create a system in which you can separate your dirty linens (colorful or white linen) so that you can easily put your clothes into the washing machine.
Lastly, you can create a workspace to help you do other things related to your laundry. For this workspace, you can build a bench and place a sink on it. Thanks to this workspace, you can easily wash your laundry that you need to wash by hand and you can wash your hands immediately after touching dirty laundry or cleaning materials. Also, if you have enough space, you can create an iron space. Thus, you can do all the things concerning laundry on your balcony.
As you will explore in the photos, there are different and decorative examples of balcony laundry room ideas. I hope you will have an idea for the laundry room that you can create for your own balcony, even if it is small.
