For a more compact and functional laundry, bi-fold doors were used to conceal the area. “Concealing the laundry means you can hide all your unruly laundry items quickly and easily.” says Holbrook.

2. In a bathroomLaundries and bathrooms are both wet zones, so it makes sense to incorporate these two rooms when space is tight. To keep from interrupting the calm, relaxing nature of a bathroom, it’s customary to conceal the laundry in some way – in this case, behind bi-fold doors. The door profile has been cleverly chosen to be in keeping with the contemporary style of the bathroom, yet it is simple enough that it doesn’t stand out as a feature. Simple shelves above and drawers to one side allow the homeowners to keep laundry items close to hand.

3. Clean without stirring up more dust Regular cleaning is one of the best ways to keep allergens under control at home, but when even the act of cleaning itself can cause allergies to flare up, it can be hard to know what to do. Try these tips to remove dust without sending it flying into the air: Use an electrostatic cloth or damp microfibre cloth to dust, not a feather duster.Use a high-quality vacuum with a HEPA filter (which traps nearly all of the dust particles sucked up rather than re-releasing them into the air), and vacuum frequently.Use a microfibre mop on hard-surface floors.7 all-natural cleaning products

1. Location: Toorak, VictoriaWhy we love it: When the owners of this renovated family home were faced with how to combine a bathroom and laundry in one, they decided to conceal their utility space behind a bank of bi-folds. But with its stunning tiled splashback and dark timber shelving that picks up on the black ceiling, we believe it’s beautiful enough to be on show all year round.

3. Choose drawers over cupboardsA humble ergonomic revolution swept through houses across the world when drawers started to replace cupboards in the kitchen, and there’s no reason why our laundries can’t be transformed in the same way. It is much easier to open a drawer and quickly locate what you’re looking for than it is to rummage around the back of a dusty cupboard for the fabric softener.This Toorak home in Melbourne by Northbourne Architecture + Design has cottoned on to this trend in its ‘hidden laundry’, which is concealed from the bathroom by bi-fold doors.Tip: Short on space? Consider using a combined washer-dryer unit.Where can I hide my laundry?

1. Combine your appliancesSome say the jury is still out on how suitable combined washer-dryers are. But regardless of whether you love them or loathe them, no-one can accuse these laundry appliances of being space guzzlers.Most washer-dryer combos accommodate smaller loads than washing machines, so are better for weekenders or households with one or two people. If you have a large family or can easily air-dry your laundry, you may be better off installing a standalone washing machine of similar size and using a retractable clothes line. If, however, you are short on drying space, these dual washer-dryer units can be a godsend.

12. Waschmaschine verstauenIn einen ohnehin schon kleinen Raum eine Waschmaschine zu stellen, kann das gesamte Raumgefühl beeinträchtigen. Nach dem Motto „aus den Augen, aus dem Sinn“, lautet also die Devise auch hier: Die Waschmaschine muss optisch kaschiert werden. Hierzu eignen sich neben Vorhängen vor allem tiefe Schränke.Lösungen für Alltagsprobleme: Wohin mit Bügelbrett, Wäscheständer & Co?
