Transitional Laundry Closet is Functional, Stylish
Within the master bedroom was a small entry hallway and extra closet, creating a perfect spot to carve out a small laundry room. Full-sized stacked washer and dryer sit next to adjustable shelves for holding supplies. New louvered doors offer ventilation and flow with the home’s plantation shutters throughout.
Here's another idea for how to keep drying clothes out of the way: a ceiling-mounted rack that raises and lowers with pulleys. The cast iron and wood Sheila Maid clothes airer has been around for more than 100 years and comes in six colors.
Provide your full-size ironing board a designated spot where it doesn't get in the way. The trick: a pair of coat hooks. Screw them into a rectangle of wood, like Ashley at the blog Domestic Imperfection, and you have a handy upright hanger that matches the rest of the room's hardware.
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.
Ironing boards are typically tough to hide, but designer Angela Todd found a way to incorporate one into her ultra-mod laundry room. The beautiful metallic partition distracts the eye from the mechanical systems behind it and provides a great backdrop for the space.

This laundry room's trim got a fresh coat of white paint. The cabinets were designed to not only maximize storage and create a functional room, but create a layer of interest with the finishes, hardware and complimentary backsplash and countertops.
