Tasked with fitting a washer and two dryers into this slim laundry room, designer RaeLynn Callaway of Classically Yours Interiors had limited space to add storage. She configured the cabinets to make the most of every inch, including open niches for bins and baskets. She also paid special attention to aesthetics, with lively green paint and corner cabinets that house art and accents. "I have realized that if you have a 'happy' laundry room you have a happy laundry person," Callaway says. Fun colors, cabinet hardware, flooring patterns and decor can really make a difference."
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.
For this laundry room, Mark Warren of Warren Home Restorations Inc. wanted to combine efficient storage and ample light with pleasing design that would blend with the rest of the home. An apron-front sink makes a pretty stand-in for a utility sink. To the right, specially sized niches hold laundry baskets that make sorting and toting a snap.
This mudroom and laundry room combination space features hooks and a bench seat for hats, bags and shoes as well as plenty of crisp, white cabinetry for laundry supplies and extra linens and towels. The stacked washer and dryer takes up minimal space, leaving room for an adjacent countertop workspace.
This space proves to be far more than just a laundry room; it also serves as a multifunctional home office and hobby area too. The large L-shaped countertop remains clear for folding laundry and taking on other housekeeping tasks. Plus, storage cabinets above and below the countertop provide the perfect place to store cleaning supplies, extra linens and children's messy arts and crafts supplies.

Traditional Green Laundry Room With White Cabinetry
Ample cabinet space makes it easy to keep this laundry room organized and uncluttered. Light green walls add a beautiful, bright color to the space, which features white cabinets, hardwood floors and gray stone countertops.
Because this laundry area sits between a master bedroom and an art studio, the design team at Crystal Kitchen Center wanted to make it accessible and functional for both purposes. The stained-glass window, backlit by a skylight, serves as an art piece and makes the room feel more expansive. The room is small, so a stackable washer and dryer help to conserve square footage. A staircase bump-out creates a spot for laundry baskets as well as a hanging rod, and a shelf over the sink acts as a handy supply station.
Traditional Laundry Room Design With Dark Wood Cabinets and Stacked Washer and Dryer
Cherry-stained cocoa cabinets create a gorgeous traditional style in this laundry room space and provide lots of storage from floor to ceiling. A stacked washing machine and dryer maximize available floor space in the small room.
This homeowner longed for a laundry area but didn't have space to remodel an existing room. To the rescue: designer Giana Shorthouse of Terracotta Properties, who teamed up with a local cabinetmaker to create a custom kitchen laundry and storage room. Stackable appliances sit next to a closet that has pullout drawers as well as room to iron. Metal mesh door fronts allow moisture out and air to circulate, yet blend seamlessly with the look of the cabinetry.
Laundry Room & Mudroom Combo Boasts Ample Cabinet Space
Tile flooring in shades of brown, gray and taupe is perfect for a utility room because it hides dirt well and is easy to clean. Ample cabinet space ensures there's plenty of room to store laundry essentials.
Traditional Cream Laundry Room With Cherry Red Washer and Dryer
A cream colored theme keeps this laundry room looking bright and open. Ribbed cabinet doors and a washboard wooden door add texture to the room. A cherry red washer and dryer pop against the neutral backdrop. Over the machines, a hanging rack keeps clothes from wrinkling.
A washer/dryer pedestal with built-in storage drawers ensures every inch of valuable space in the laundry room is used. In addition, wall-to-wall cabinetry guarantees there's a place for everything. Design by Shane Inman
