The Importance of Home: Focus on Laundry Rooms

Return

While we continue to spend more time at home during the isolation period, maintaining your home design plans and goals is simple and straight forward. If you are working on a laundry room renovation, our team of Interior Designers at Perini Tiles continues to be available for colour consultations either in our Richmond showroom, over the phone, email or video chat to help you create the perfect colour palette. 

From selecting your ideal floor tiles and splashback tiles to keeping a consistent look with your benchtop and cabinetry selections, our team will offer you the best advice to create your ideal colour scheme.

Laundry Floor Tiles

Your laundry floor tiles will set the foundation of your entire room’s colour scheme. Being a high traffic area of the home, the laundry room is prone to becoming a little messy and as such, selecting a hard wearing floor tile that has the additional bonus of featuring a forgiving pattern or surface texture is ideal, assisting in creating a low maintenance environment in the home.

Natural stone, terrazzo or porcelain tiles are among the most popular choices when it comes to selecting a floor finish thanks to their incredible durability and longevity in the home. Terrazzo tiles for example, feature a range of assorted chip colours and shapes embedded in concrete, presenting a varying pattern on your flooring that will minimise the appearance of dust and dirt. Porcelain tiles on the other hand, can be produced in a wide range of colours, shapes, patterns and even textures, allowing the creation of many different styles such as simulated timber tiles that feature a hyper realistic timber grain texture, traditional terrazzo and even sleek marble-look finishes, allowing you the freedom of choice in selecting from a vast range of options.

Laundry Benchtop Choices

As the laundry usually sits close to the kitchen in modern floor plans, selecting a benchtop finish that either matches or complements your kitchen’s colour scheme is an excellent way to maintain a sense of continuity in your home’s theme and colour palette. Engineered (also referred to as Composite) stones are an excellent choice for both the kitchen and laundry, providing an economical substitute to natural stone benchtops which are more prone to staining and also require ongoing sealing and maintenance. For an even more cost effective choice however, laminate benchtops provide the perfect solution in a laundry room, offering an economical choice that is still hard wearing and stylish, making for a solid choice for any laundry design.

Laundry Cabinetry 

Laundry cabinetry finishes range from the more cost effective laminate varieties to the pricier two pack, timber veneer or solid timber finishes. As with your flooring finish, cabinetry can be both costly and difficult to replace later on down the track so selecting a colour and finish that has endless appeal is an excellent choice here. Opt for simple and elegant neutral tones or timber finishes (timber-look laminates are also an excellent choice) in your cabinetry, making your floor tiles and splashback tiles the key standout features in your design. Kit out your new laundry with a selection of versatile storage solutions that will help you in maximising the space’s function and efficiency. Options to consider include: pull out laundry hampers and ironing boards, tall cupboards with built-in powerpoints to house your stick and handheld vacuum cleaners, broom and mop storage, drying cupboards, overhead cupboards or open shelves. 

Tiled Laundry Splashbacks

Using quality wall tiles as your new laundry splashback allows you the ultimate freedom in getting creative with you choice of colour, pattern and texture. From luscious glass mosaics to decorative ceramic tiles and more, the possibilities are truly endless! Use your laundry splashback as a canvas to show off your creative side; splashbacks can be easily changed up as trends change over time, offering the opportunity to experiment while matching up your splashback with timeless flooring, cabinetry and benchtop finishes that are both more costly and difficult to change around later on.
