There is plenty of storage in this stylish laundry room. Running the length of the wall above the washer and dryer, there are cabinets, while a small, slender cabinet is situated on either side of the machines for additional storage. This helps the homeowner keep her laundry room neat and tidy with a space for everything.
Contemporary Laundry Room With Checkerboard Flooring
This spacious, transitional laundry room offers plenty of room for functional and stylish design ideas to form. Designer Traci Zeller adds drama to the room through a black-and-white color scheme and checkerboard tiled flooring. Glass decanters serve as attractive storage containers for detergent, clothespins and other laundry essentials.
Sorting bins for lights, darks and towels don't have to be front and center. When Erin Rollins of the blog Sunny Side Up was redoing her laundry room, she created drawers that disguise her plastic baskets. "Laundry can be such a chore," she says, "so I wanted a room that made the process as streamlined as possible."
Interesting pulls and playful tiles take the basic white backdrop of this laundry room and turn the look into something fun. A rug on the floor adds another cozy texture. Wire baskets make organizing linens a snap.
Not everything in your laundry room has to be shiny and new to make the space beautiful. In fact, having an antique wardrobe like this one is a great way to tell a story and still have storage. This farmhouse laundry room, designed by Carol Spinski, has a lovely mix of elements that makes for an interesting space.
The downside of regular hampers: They're bulky, so where do you put them when they're not being used? Umbra's Crunch Can, available at The Container Store, stores flat and then pops into position to tote clothes around the house.
