Laundry renovations

Design and practicality are the two most important factors in the high-traffic yet generally small laundry room.

Your laundry mightn’t be the highest priority when you’re considering a home renovation, but as one of the hardest working rooms in the house, shouldn’t it maintain a high standard of functionality?

This small space certainly needs to accommodate a lot of things!

  • Laundry basket for dirty clothes
  • Washing machine (and dryer)
  • A large laundry sink or trough
  • Ironing board
  • Cleaning materials (mops, brooms, sponges, soaps etc.)
  • Other miscellaneous objects like pet supplies

Technical considerations in a laundry renovation

Due to its classification as a “wet area” (just like the bathroom or kitchen) there are several regulations that must be adhered to, particularly when it comes to waterproofing and sealing. We provide all warranties and certificates required to ensure your job is Built with Pride.

Wall and floor
construction
Waterproofing is key here! Water-resistant construction and surface material will protect your home from unexpected water damage.
Electricity and
electrical outlets
There are rules that govern the distances required between electrical and plumbing outlets or fixtures.You must only engage a qualified electrician to conduct all electrical work.
Plumbing
When installing plumbing fixtures, always engage a registered plumber. This way, you're assured items installed comply to all plumbing regulations.
Ventilation
Ventilation is critical in the laundry to prevent the risk of mould and mildew. Dryers should have a direct ventilation system, ideally having an extraction fan, which will clear the room of all warm and water vapoured particles in the air.

Marshall Developments will ensure each technical aspect is adhered to the highest standard!
