KBTribeChat | The Evolution of the Laundry Room
Laundry - love it or hate it, it’s an essential routine in everyday life. And over the years, the laundry room has evolved into so much more than just a space to clean clothes. As laundry moves from the basement to the first floor, we’re seeing new innovations in design and technology.
On this week’s KBTribeChat, we discussed the evolution of laundry rooms and the latest in laundry tech.

Laundry is moving up from the basement. What trends in laundry room design do you see because of it?
Laundry might be boring, but your laundry room doesn’t have to be. After all, a well-designed laundry room = clean clothes, right? We’re a fan of going bold in this space – wallpaper, bright colors, patterns, don’t hold back!

Laundry rooms are also becoming more and more multi-purposeful. Mudrooms, storage extra storage, even workspaces – now that’s one productive area!

What are your pain points around laundry? What features do you wish you had?
The right materials can help create a clean, low-maintenance laundry room. You need surfacing that’s durable, non-porous, highly resistant to stains and resistant to most chemicals, acids and solvents. Wait a minute…we might know a surface that checks all those boxes…

Counter space is also important for a functional laundry room. Don’t fill up the counters with clutter. Keep them clear and clean for style and practical usage.

Laundry machines are operating with less water and shorter cycles. Has this impacted the way you do laundry?
It makes us feel less guilty! At Caesarstone, minimizing our impact on the environment is a priority for us. We’re big on saving water – 97% of the water used during manufacture is reclaimed using filtration and recycling systems. So we’re all for laundry machines that can do the same!

Top load or front load? Debate.
Top load. No – front load. Wait, no… top! Alright, alright, if we HAD to choose, we’ll say front load. It provides the opportunity to stack the machines, and we’re all about saving space.
