Can I Add Monetary Value To My Home By Remodeling My Laundry Room?

Doing the laundry is a boring part of the day where we take a few hours to sort, clean, fold, and put away a pile-up of clothing from the previous week. But your surroundings can influence how you feel about something and having a beautiful laundry room can upgrade this task to make it feel more like a peaceful break from your everyday routine than a chore. Something as simple as updated laundry room floor cabinets can take the space from boring to elegant.

A frequently asked question many homeowners have is, “Can I add monetary value to my home by remodeling my laundry room?” Our relatively straightforward answer is “not much”—at least in terms of resale value. However, that doesn’t mean remodeling your laundry room isn’t a fantastic idea that will add value to your everyday experience in your home or excite potential homebuyers should you choose to sell your home.

While the kitchen and bath upgrade projects we specialize in are some of the most valuable renovations you can do, other hardworking spaces in your home—like your home office or your laundry room—can also benefit from cabinet upgrades. Here at Red Rose Cabinetry, our talented sales and design team members are ready to answer your questions when looking to add an upgraded look, better storage efficiency to their spaces, and a little bit of resale value to their homes.

Read on to learn more about the types of laundry room remodels you can make to add efficiency, comfort, and convenience to your home.
