Once relegated to basements and mudrooms, today’s modern home designs often create a special space for laundry that can be just as decorative and pleasant to visit as the rest of your home. No one likes doing laundry, but a nice makeover or laundry room remodel in Westport might be just what you need to brighten up the space. Many homeowners now choose to expand the space, provide room for folding and hanging, ironing, and even indoor drying. The addition of South Coast cabinets and cupboards in with other Westport home remodeling materials can make the space even more functional and increase storage significantly. If you are going to install cabinets in Southeastern Massachusetts, consider adding them as part of a laundry room makeover. Either as a stand-alone project or to coordinate the look and design of the space with a bathroom or kitchen, you will love the results!
Should All Cabinets Match?
This is one of the biggest questions asked by homeowners. Many new homes have cabinetry that matches throughout, from the bathrooms and kitchen to laundry rooms and storage areas. However, as more and more home decor magazines and designers post portfolios of kitchens and bathrooms that use different colors to create a unique look for South Coast cabinets and cupboards, people wonder what they should do. The number one reason why new homes have matching cabinetry is that it is the most cost-effective method for purchasing materials. Instead of getting unique looks, colors, and styles for each room of the house, the contractor will typically purchase a single style. The same holds true for tile, wood, and carpet flooring. The goal is to streamline the process, reduce overhead costs, and provide a basic “starter” design for the new home buyers.
When you decide to do a laundry remodel in Westport, you can choose to use any color scheme and type of materials to install cabinets in Southeastern Massachusetts. However, if your laundry room is right next to the kitchen or a bathroom, you might want to consider matching the type of color for consistency. That being said, there is no hard and fast rule about the type of Westport home remodeling materials you should use. Just be careful about going too trendy with the design to alienate potential buyers in the future, should you want to put your home on the market.

The Argument for Different Cabinets
There are a couple of reasons why you might want to choose different colors, styles, and designs of materials for your new laundry room remodel in Westport. The first being to create a space that is completely separate from the other areas of the home. Laundry rooms are different than kitchens and bathrooms, in that the type of storage and shelving needed will be somewhat unique. You might want to create a counter space area for sorting and folding laundry to add increased functionality. You might also want to include a hanging rack for certain clothing items so you can put them on hangers before taking them to the bedroom closets. You might also want to add cabinets where none previously existed, and the type and size you want does not come in the same color and design as the cabinets used in other parts of the home.
To safely change colors and styles for one room of the home, make sure to pick materials that will still go with the rest of the house. For example, a living room that has blue or gray walls that is just down the hall from the laundry room might be an inspiration for choosing to install cabinets in Southeastern Massachusetts that are also blue or gray. Picking Westport home remodeling materials for countertops that are different from bathroom or kitchen countertop colors and styles might make sense when using cabinetry that is also different. In a kitchen, dark countertops might work perfectly, but in a smaller room like a laundry room, you might want something lighter and brighter to open up the space. You might also choose a similar design style that is only different in one way, such as shaker style cabinets in the kitchen and bathrooms with shaker style cabinets that feature beadboard on the inner panel in the laundry room for a bit of variety.
Your Home, Your Style
The most important thing to remember when doing a laundry room remodel in Westport or anywhere in the South Coast area is to choose a design, style, and color that reflects you and who you are. While keeping a classic design can be essential for homeowners who are thinking about listing their home for sale, it is not necessary if you are planning to be there for many years to come. Go ahead and create that custom spa-like master bathroom and paint colorful designs on the walls of a child’s room. One of the most rewarding experiences of homeownership is being able to do what you want and make it your own. Call our team today at 508-379-6154 to hear our hours or get directions to our showroom.
