Although, as mother of 5 every day in my home is laundry day, I am excited to be celebrating National Laundry Day April 15th with GE Appliances, who are leading the way in merging design and technology to elevate the laundry experience.
Not even a decade ago, laundry was a seen as a dirty task you were forced into tiny cramped basements to complete, but nowadays laundry has become an accepted part of everyday life. Doing laundry has become an experience, and in our homes we’re looking to design spaces that will elevate this everyday task into an enjoyable practice. As interior designers we’re creating spaces now for our clients that would rival any swoon-worthy kitchen – custom cabinetry, stone counters, artisanal backsplashes, and at the center of it all functional yet chic appliances.
Did you know that 55% of all laundry pairs sold in Canada are top load? And that number is growing, with many Canadians preferring the ergonomics, ease and functionality of a top load machine. So isn’t it time for the modern styling and high performance of front load laundry to come to the top load laundry category? That’s the need GE Appliances set out to address with the launch of their GE Designer Line laundry pair in 2016. And now, that style and design is available in the latest trending colour: Diamond Grey.
When it comes to laundry in my household, it’s not simply a woman’s task. Everyone takes their turn and lends a helping hand – kids included. I love that the GE Designer Line laundry pair are fool proof. Not only do they meet the needs of today’s families with up to 17% more room for clothes, but with an auto load sensing option, you’ll only get as much water as is needed for even the smallest loads. In the case of heavier soiled loads, the Deep Fill option will provide a full tub fill. On top of all that, the GE Designer Line are Energy Star rated to save you in electricity and water consumption for year-round energy and money savings.
The chore list in every household is different, and in celebration of National Laundry Day I wanted to reimagine a laundry room space that celebrated the “his & her” mentality. Whether laundry is you or your husband’s task I have pulled together a concept that would appeal to both. Using high-end finishes to accent the beauty of the diamond grey finish. In these spaces the showstopper truly is the GE Designer Line laundry pair, featuring a central control knob with metallic accents, the GE Designer Line laundry pair features glass doors, curved shapes, LED lights and controls, plus an advanced display layout.
Therapeutic for some or an accepted everyday task for others, laundry doesn’t have to be mundane. From your appliances to the décor you surround yourself with this National Laundry Day- look at ways to elevate your laundry experience to the next level.
