Start With New Tile Floors When Remodeling Your Laundry Room


Replacing your flooring can be an excellent project when you're eager to update a dated laundry room. If you've just recently begun to look through different projects for your laundry room, you'll quickly see how much of a difference new flooring can make. Instead of being frustrated with the flooring being in rough condition, consider tile flooring and the ease of cleaning, as well as the personalization it can add to the room.

Before you commit to any tile flooring, consider the benefits of starting with tiling first and what to expect during the project. 

Move Any Appliances Out 

Temporarily relocating your washing machine and dryer is essential to putting in new flooring. The tile flooring should be seamless across the entire room, but heavy appliances can get in the way. Instead of laying the tile around the appliances, look into professional help moving the heavy appliances before the flooring is worked on.

By moving the appliances out of the room, you'll be able to put in a proper subfloor and can make other updates to the laundry room with new flooring installed.

Keep Moisture in Mind

If you're eager to have new flooring installed, it's vital that you keep moisture in mind. Water will inevitably land on the flooring occasionally due to moving clothing from the washer to the dryer. Instead of letting these drips of water cause damage to floorings, such as warping and discoloring, tile is an excellent way to avoid this problem.

As you shop for new tile flooring, consider the differences between the tile available and how much water can negatively affect the surface. By finding tile and subflooring that won't be damaged by moisture, you can feel reassured that it's a great match for your laundry room.

Have a Design Planned

Being unable to do laundry for however long the project takes can be frustrating. Instead of letting this be a major inconvenience, make sure you have a plan in place for the layout of your laundry room. By knowing how long it will take for the subfloor to be put in, followed by the tile flooring, you can have an estimate that makes tackling this project much easier.

Putting in new flooring for your laundry room can drastically change the appearance and make the space easier to keep neat. If you've been interested in tile flooring, but feel hesitant to begin with the project of having it installed, consider the above tips and the difference it can make for your laundry room.
