Let’s face it, Americans today are all about convenience — and why shouldn’t we be? We are blessed to live in a society where we have so many conveniences, even compared to 20 years ago, that we cannot begin to count them all. Thus, if you can improve the quality of your life by making your laundry room convenient by partnering with Tharp Custom Cabinetry, then, by all means, do it!

Hindrance #1: The Laundry Basket

A universal problem that we’ve all experienced is tripping over the laundry basket. Whether this is because it was inadvertently left out or because it doesn’t have a permanent home, custom cabinetry for your laundry room can solve the problem Tharp Custom Cabinetry can build custom shelves in your laundry room for your laundry baskets that are conveniently tucked away. We can even put these shelves on rollers, so when you come home dirty or sweaty, it’s easy to take off your clothes and add them to your basket.

Hindrance #2: The Dog Bed

While Fido is a very important member of the family, he is still a dog. As such, he needs to be contained at times when the home is empty — for his own protection, of course, from the killer attacking pillow he feels the need to chew. However, having Fido’s dog bed out in the middle of the laundry room is not only a tripping hazard, but it’s also unsightly. Tharp Custom Cabinetry can build a shelf in your laundry room to hold your dog’s bed underneath some cabinets so Fido and his bed are out of the way.

Hindrance #3: The Cleaning Supplies

Cleaning supplies are must-have and frequently-used household items that need to not only be in reach, but also need to be organized. If having your household cleaning supplies thrown up in one laundry room cabinet is just not working for you anymore, then investing in custom laundry room cabinetry is a must. Tharp Custom Cabinetry can design, manufacture, and install custom cabinets that will help you to separate out your household cleaners and get them organized for good.

Reasons to Upgrade Your Laundry Room Cabinets

Resale Value

The average American moves 11.7 times in their lifetime. If they bought a house every time they moved, then this is 11 to 12 homes. For argument’s sake, let’s say they rented during some of those moves. You are still looking at about half a dozen homes you will live in and then sell to move someplace else before you settle down for good. Thus, when you invest in custom cabinetry for your laundry room from Tharp Custom Cabinetry, you are increasing the resale value of your home for when you need to move. If you aren’t moving, then you are adding equity value, which means your home is worth more as well.

Makes the Space More Inviting

As mentioned above, most laundry rooms are uninviting, dark, dingy, unkempt, and really only entered to do the laundry. When you upgrade your custom cabinets in your laundry room, you will be making your laundry room much more inviting. That’s not to say you will be moving in a chair and having coffee with a friend in your laundry room any time soon. However, you will be more apt to fold your laundry and iron than you otherwise would be.

Makes the Space More Functional.

When you partner with Tharp Custom Cabinetry for your custom laundry room cabinets, you will be making your laundry room more functional. If you are tired of having the laundry detergent sitting out for all to see, having your mops and brooms stuck in a corner, apt to fall down with a nearby slammed door, and of tripping over your cat’s litter box, then custom laundry room cabinets are for you. We can create an out-of-the-way space for the litter box, manufacture a tall cabinet for your mops and brooms, and conceal your laundry detergent but still have it easily accessible.

Top Three Custom Cabinetry Items for Your Laundry Room

When thinking of your perfect, ideal laundry room, what items come to mind? Do you want a concealed cat litter area for your kitty that contains the mess and the smells? How about a clothes rack so you can immediately hang up your dress shirts and blouses before they get wrinkled? What about under cabinet lighting so your sink is illuminated and you have a night light? Below, you’ll see the the top items we at Tharp Custom Cabinetry see requested quite frequently.

Tall Cabinet for the Brooms and Mops

Without a doubt many people just want a home for their brooms and mops. A tall custom cabinet in their laundry room is just the spot to store these important but awkward items. You can even have a shelf created for the mop bucket as well.

Cabinets Above the Washer and Dryer

Some laundry rooms we encounter throughout Colorado and Wyoming are bare-bones, meaning there are no cabinets whatsoever, or there is only one or two. Thus, most people want cabinets over their washer and dryer. Not only does this provide an ideal frame for your washer and dryer, but most people like to store either their laundry detergent there or use these shelves for more permanent item storage, such as for winter blankets.

Countertop of Sorts

A countertop is one of those multi-purpose items that has so many uses that it’s hard to quantify. From having a convenient place to put your laundry basket and fold laundry to having a place to put your dirty clothes instead of on the floor when a laundry basket is missing, a countertop can always come in handy. Plus, your cat will have a convenient perch from which to watch you do laundry (and lay on the warm, clean laundry if you leave it too long!)


Tharp Custom Cabinetry has been serving Colorado and Wyoming for over 40 years with the best custom cabinetry for all rooms in your home or office, from custom kitchen and bathroom cabinets to laundry room cabinetry. We are all about convenience. When items are easily located and utilized and items are out of the way and not in the middle of the floor, you are less stressed. Less stress in your life is not only good for your health, but it improves the relationship you have with your family and friends as well.

Making your home exactly how you want it may take time and effort, but it is worth it. When you come home to a space that is of your own creation, you get a warm feeling inside that contributes to the feeling of being home. And this feeling is priceless.
