Space is often at a premium in laundry rooms, so it's important to put every inch to good use. Take advantage of vertical wall space by installing simple yet stylish hooks like the ones in this laundry room. These are perfect for hanging a variety of items, including a "lost sock" basket. (We've all got 'em.)
With merely an inch to spare, this laundry room was re-framed twice to accommodate every inch needed for the washer and dryer to stay slim and compact. With no room for a door, the family decided the gain was well worth the view, and with the mom of the house being a successful home organizer, the bet was safe that it would indeed be gorgeous & organized to look at, even when in full use. The ceiling was raised higher and skylights were added to create maximum use of this space.
For extra organization and added style, mount a metal basket on the wall to create a shelf. Then, add a pair of straps below to store your ironing board. For an extra bit of glam, add material to the back side of the shelf that matches your ironing board.
Keeping the small room simple and uncluttered ensures that this laundry room is efficient and functional. A side-by-side washer and dryer fit snugly into cubbies to provide extra countertop space. The black countertops are a nice, bold contrast to the white room. A white subway-tile backsplash adds a little embellishment to the space.
Textured white subway tile and a glass pendant light add an artisan look to what's typically a humble space: the laundry room. An abstract painting done in tones of blue and a navy-colored laundry hamper prove to be thoughtful accents as they tie in with the bold blues used in accents throughout the home.
Laundry room in the basement and no solution for covering up pipes and concrete? Enter pegboard. Organizing Made Fun blogger Becky Barnfather painted her pegboard a cheery green and white design to add style and function to the area.
This pretty laundry room is conveniently adjacent to the kitchen. Patterned tiles and interesting details, like the metal-and-glass pendant and the cabinets' leather pulls, add compelling layers of texture.
This 6' x 8' laundry room is the happiest spot in the house thanks to turquoise paint, a technicolor area rug and a hand-woven bath mat used as art. When decorating task-related spaces, it’s smart to get creative with decorating ideas that require little cost, but add big impact.
HGTV fan Sassy0239 wanted to transform her contractor-grade laundry room into a stylish and feminine utility space representative of her style. She repainted the walls, replaced the traditional metal shelves and added chic, budget-friendly baskets and storage accessories to make up for the lack of cabinetry. Now, she has a pretty laundry room she actually enjoys doing laundry in (kind of).
A laundry room is the perfect place to set up a cozy corner for the family pet and all of his toys and supplies. In this room, the laundry station is confined to one side, while the rest of the space serves as an informal mudroom with a spot for leashes, toys, hats and shoes. And for added style with practicality, the vinyl flooring makes pet messes, shoe prints and other accidents a cinch to clean up. Photo courtesy of Armstrong
The center of the laundry room includes an under-mount stainless steel sink used for rinsing clothes before tossing them into the wash. While under-mount sinks add a clean, seamless look to countertops, they also require a great deal of skill to install. In order for an under-mount sink to be properly installed, it’s positioned into place from below, then secured to the bottom of the countertop with silicone.
