Touches of home

You want your residents to want to do their laundry in your laundry room, so make it as comfortable as possible for them! Simple upgrades can make a world of difference, when planning your multi-housing laundry room, including these amenities for your residents:

  • Wi-Fi
  • Folding tables and drying racks
  • Utility sink(s)
  • Soap vending machines
  • Irons and ironing boards
  • Comfortable seating
  • Artwork
  • Plants and greenery
  • Space for community announcements

Accessibility & security features

It’s imperative that you ensure your laundry room is safe and accessible to all residents. Having these extra accessibility and security measures will provide peace of mind for your residents, and yourself.

  • Include some ADA-compliant washers and dryers in the mix. Front-load washers are generally necessary for people who use wheelchairs and other mobility devices.
  • Add ramps, lifts, and elevators to allow easy access for everyone.
  • Include wide and automatic doorways for wheelchair users.
  • Design large walkways between machines suitable for wheelchairs, walkers, and other mobility devices.
  • Provide large-print and Braille signage for those who are blind or visually impaired.
  • Make your laundry room available to residents only. Install a lock or card access system, to make your residents feel safer, prevent theft, and protect your laundry equipment from unwanted guests.
  • Install appropriate lighting so all residents can easily see in your room and increase security.
  • Install a security camera or alarm system. While it is unlikely, there is always the possibility of someone breaking in and stealing or vandalizing equipment.
