The Ultimate Laundry Room with Rubbermaid, Gerber and More
February 4, 2020
Laundry rooms are fast becoming a must-have feature for homebuyers — particularly for millennials, the largest homebuying group in the U.S. For home builders looking to appeal to this generation, including laundry rooms in your floor plan is a smart bet. Our brand partners Rubbermaid, Gerber, Daltile and Panasonic can help you earn rebates while building stylish laundry rooms that appeal to this homebuying force.
So, who says laundry rooms are so popular? Homebuyers themselves, who named the feature as the most popular among 175 features listed by the National Association of Home Builders for their latest survey on homebuyer wants.
And it makes sense, most buyers want more storage space, and laundry rooms are the perfect opportunity to provide more shelving and thoughtful design.
Real estate agents have also weighed in on what goes in a perfect laundry room. Their suggestions include:
- Nice finishes like water-resistant flooring.
- A large, flat surface to fold clothes.
- Good ventilation.
- A stylish utility sink.
While including all of these features will cost more in construction, keep in mind that we can help offset your costs with our bundled rebate approach. When you use more than one of our brands on a project, your total rebate will be higher per product.
