The laundry may be the engine room of the house but it hasn’t always been considered a temple of style. This is all set to change.
Neutral tones and natural materials such as tiles, wooden doors, jute rugs and laundry baskets will keep the look practical but also create a tranquil space you’ll actually want to live in.
Maximise bench space so you can have an area to sort and fold clean laundry, and don’t forget to utilise storage space to stash your cleaning products.
Treat the laundry as you would your beautiful bathroom and invest in luxuries like scented linen sprays, as well as a fast, energy-efficient and innovative washing machine that will make a dull, everyday chore almost enjoyable. A machine such as Samsung’s QuickDrive 8.5kg Front Loader with AddWash™ will help step up the laundry’s appeal dramatically.
Okay, so the family may not gather together to watch the spin cycle like it was reality TV, but getting the piles of laundry done on a weeknight won’t be the big deal it was once. When you’re in a rush, it’s easy to overlook a stray piece of clothing, which inevitably leads to more loads.
Saumsung’s AddWash™ Family range all have the extra AddWash™ door on the upper part of the front loader’s main door to add that errant sock or T-shirt to the wash during the wash cycle without the drama*.
With nine models that have innovations such as Bubblewash, Bubble Soak, Air Wash and Hygiene Steam, your laundry becomes a bespoke experience. You can even remotely control and monitor the QuickDrive washer model with the Saumsung SmartThings app on your phone. What’s more, the same QuickDrive model can complete a 5km wash in 39 minutes using 20 percent less energy. ^
For those needing a single machine to wash and dry, there are two combo options that take care of both.
The advanced washing technologies of Samsung’s AddWash™ family range mean they’re tough on stains but gently on fabric. Every model takes the chore out of laundry, making it not only a more stylish exercise, it verges on being almost enjoyable.
