Laundry. There’s no avoiding it, but there are ways to make it easier and more streamlined for you and your family. Moss Building & Design, the premier home remodeler in Northern Virginia, helped many families renovate their laundry rooms over the years.

From small spaces that needed reconfiguration to large ones that needed a facelift, MOSS designed and renovated laundry rooms to be more functional and organized.

Baskets & Bins For Organization

One of the best ways to make the task of laundry better is to involve the entire family. Give each person a laundry basket in their room and have specific baskets for whites, colors, and delicates in the laundry room. This sorting helps the process flow better.

After the laundry is completed, individuals can take personal responsibility for putting their clothes to their rooms and away (folding clothes, too, depending on their age!).


Cabinets For Detergent & More

Wouldn’t it be nice to store the detergent, dryer sheets, and fabric softener away from the washer and dryer? Upper cabinetry or lower drawers for these items solves the problem! It takes care of clutter and is neater with less possibilities for spills. Built-in laundry room cabinets are the solution that many of us need!


Shelf Or Drying Rack For Spot Cleaning & Folding

Even in a small space, a tabletop or shelf for folding and organizing clothes is a wonderful laundry room addition. Using the space before laundry for spot-checking is also a great idea. The ability to iron clothes and either hang them up or fold them neatly is equally amazing. So many possibilities!

In any size laundry room, the mantra should be, “Everything has its place.” Families should be able to be a part of laundry activity from start to finish.


A functional and flowing process makes laundry a less arduous task for everyone! Let MOSS make the laundry room of your dreams a reality. Contact us at 703.961.7707 for a free estimate or email us at
