Laundry is ever so much more appealing when it can be done in a room as adorable as this one. Quaint details like the pendant light and nailhead trimmed countertops fill the utilitarian space with personality.
If your favorite dryer sheets' package clashes with your color palette, transfer the contents into a container that's more in line with the decor. Stacy Risenmay of the blog Not Just a Housewife chose an old metal box that adds the perfect patina to her laundry room.
Take advantage of wall space and create organized storage in your laundry room by using adjustable shelves, like these from ClosetMaid's ShelfTrack and ShelfTrack Elite. Well-placed shelves over a counter or in a niche keep supplies close at hand, but also off the floor and out of the way of your work area.
Natural Wood Kitchen Pantry Doors Framed With White Molding in Seafoam Green Wall
The barn-like natural wood pantry doors catch the eye in this photo highlighting the warm, wood finish against the seafoam wall and white trim. The kitchen opens at one end onto a space that's contiguous with the living room and incorporates a built-in desk for a small home office.
White Barn Door Pantry With Natural Wood Horseshoe Floating Shelves
Barn doors don't intrude on floor space and make for an attractive pantry opening. The sliding doors reveal horseshoe shaped floating shelves with a natural wood look giving it a country design vibe. The shelf design leaves items easily accessible and visible.
Baskets are labeled with wooden tags to serve as both recycling bins and catchalls for toys, shoes or tools in the laundry room and mudroom of HGTV Green Home 2010. A four-foot work island is topped with quartz and features an oversized farm sink with sliding hardwood cutting board.
The neutral color palette in this mudroom keeps things feeling organized and calm. Open storage with baskets provides a place to hide bags, mail and keys, and a striped bench provides a comfortable spot to take off muddy shoes.
Wooden shelves provide convenient storage for cleaning supplies in this charming laundry room. Neutral walls keep the space feeling nice and clean, while woven laundry baskets are a beautiful upgrade from plain jane plastic. A large glass canister is used to store powdered detergent.
In this mudroom from Tanya Collins Design, an antique pine armoire, painted teal, boosts storage and creates a focal point that enlivens the otherwise neutral scheme. The built-in cabinets near the door, big enough to house bulky items, are painted the same shade as the walls so that they blend into the background. A framed chalkboard-paint wall serves as a central spot for memos and messages.
