Basement Rec Room With Orange and White Stripe Wall
This simple basement design is perfect for a home gym. The concrete walls are softened by an accent wall of orange and white painted diagonal stripes. Rubber floor matts soften the floor for working out, and letters painted on the wall allow for an easy way to keep track of workout sessions.
A classic white table lamp sheds light throughout the laundry room, where gray bead board walls stand as a stark contrast to white cabinets and appliances. “It’s an eye-popper, really good looking, and very tailored,” says interior designer Linda Woodrum.

Comfortable neutral furnishings with a subtle diamond pattern provide a cozy sitting area around the television in this gray basement. A black kitchen island with a dark marble countertop creates a bar area perfect for entertaining. Unusual metal pendant lights provide bright light in the space and serve as an interesting art piece.

Transitional Laundry Room Showcases Shades of Gray
Stainless steel countertops ensure this laundry room is fit to endure some serious laundry catastrophes. Gray appliances and cabinets work well with the countertops, creating a tone-on-tone palette that feels calm and tidy.
Storage Dilemma: Doing laundry feels like a constant chore, made worse because your laundry room lacks storage. Solution: Smart tools like slide-out hampers, hanging rods for air-drying clothes and shelves for supplies take advantage of every inch of space available. This way you can focus on the task at hand, instead of searching for supplies.
This laundry room lives much larger than its square footage, thanks to smart planning by Geoff Chick & Associates. The base cabinets that flank the washer and dryer are just 18 inches deep, but extending the wall of cabinetry all the way to the 12-foot ceiling vastly increases the usable space. Windows visually expand the room; the natural light flooding in enhances the warm notes in the soft gray paint. "Most laundry rooms are tucked away in a dark corner or in the basement," Chick notes.
