3 Reasons to Remove Laundry Room Cabinets

Laundry room cabinets seem to serve to organize a laundry room, but there may be a number of reasons you should consider removing these cabinets. If any of the following apply, remove your cabinets in the laundry room.

1. The Cabinets Are Too Low

Many laundry room cabinets were designed for a standard washer and dryer at the time the home was built. If your own washer and dryer don't comfortably fit side by side under your cabinets, it's easier to remove the cabinets and design another system of storage in the laundry room instead of purchasing a new washer and dryer. If the cabinets were designed decades ago, washers and dryers may simply have become taller than they used to be, particularly when placed on a stand, and you may find it difficult to find a set that's short enough to fit regardless.

2. You Have a Stackable Washer/Dryer

A stackable washer/dryer combo can be a convenient space saver, but you simply may not have space for the set if you already have laundry room cabinets in the way. Removing these cabinets will free up the necessary space.

3. You Can Design a More Convenient and Efficient Storage System

When laundry room cabinets are designed overhead, they can be difficult and inefficient to use. You may have trouble reaching items without a stepladder and so you may refrain from storing much in the cabinets. You may be able to design a more convenient system elsewhere in the room.
