4 Ways to Baby-proof Your Laundry Space in Style

4 Ways to Baby-proof Your Laundry Space in Style

With a little attention to detail, baby-proofing your laundry space can be both practical and stylish. From sleek storage solutions to elevated appliances, each design element serves a dual purpose, blending safety with style. Here are 4 ways to baby-proof your laundry room that cater to the needs of your growing family.

1. Floating shelves

Floating shelves offer a sleek, minimalist look while serving as a practical storage solution that keeps laundry detergents, bleach, and fabric softeners out of children's reach. Beyond safety, floating shelves allow you to display plants and other decorative items, adding personality to the little nook. Opt for installation at a height that is well beyond your little one's curious hands but still accessible for adults.

2. Automated laundry system

An automated laundry system revolutionises the way we think about baby-proofing. Lowering the system to a more ergonomic height not only makes drying laundry more comfortable for you but also keeps appliances out of your baby's reach when not in use. Not to mention, traditional pulley systems and bamboo sticks tend to freefall when not handled/kept away properly.

With features that can be controlled via smartphone (or remote control), you can keep an eye on your little explorer while leaving the laundry to dry on “auto-pilot”. Not to mention, Steigen systems offer 2 drying temperatures–60ºC Solar Drying and 30ºC Cool Breeze–to keep your delicate baby clothes in pristine condition. 

Need help getting rid of musky laundry odours and dust mites? The Solar Pro activates the 2-in-1 Sol Ion™ when any drying feature is switched on to provide odour control and allergy care while drying laundry. 

3. Top-load washer

A top-load washer can be a strategic choice for families with young children. The design naturally limits a child's ability to open the washer door themselves, which is a significant advantage over front-load models that are often at the perfect height for toddlers to explore. Additionally, many washers feature a child-lock functionality for added peace of mind.

4. Magnetic locks

Magnetic locks are a godsend for parents looking to baby-proof cabinets and drawers without altering their home's aesthetic. These locks are installed inside the cabinet or drawer, making them invisible from the outside and preserving the beauty of your furniture. They are especially useful in laundry areas, where you might store a variety of cleaning chemicals.

As easy as ABC

Baby-proofing your laundry room is an essential step in creating a safe environment for your children, but it never has to mean sacrificing style.
