With a laundry nook right smack in the middle of their bedroom, Erin and Chris decided to mask it with a simple drapery panel that easily slides open for instant access. Erin notes, "While staring at a washer and dryer isn't ideal for a design enthusiast like me, I really couldn't complain since having a washer and dryer in a San Francisco rental is a total luxury. So we just worked with it!"
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.
In this small laundry closet, not an inch of space is wasted. A countertop unites side-by-side units and forms a surface for folding clothes and stashing hampers. A hanging rod is fastened above to air dry delicates, while a splash of silver tile brightens even the most mundane chore.
Better believe utilitarian spaces can be incredibly chic. Pale green accents are fresh companions to this laundry room's crisp white walls and cabinets. Even the stainless steel washer and dryer feel like a part of the decor.

Country Laundry Room With Stainless Steel Counters
This laundry room makes utilitarian tasks ever so much more inviting with its plentiful natural light and well-thought-out design. Ample countertops give room for folding. There's also a sink, an in-wall ironing machine and storage for cleaning supplies. Sleek stainless steel countertops reflect the sunlight from the clerestory windows.
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.
This laundry features white subway tile, grouted in black, which matches the window trim as well as the sink cabinet. Rustic wood shelves sit above a white farmhouse sink and between two hanging lantern lights.
Industrial meets chic in this functional, yet stylish laundry room. A stacked washer and dryer make maximum use of space, allowing for a sink, hanging rod, cabinetry and countertop space for folding. The gray and white palette is neutral, but pattern and texture bring plenty of visual interest.
This cheerful laundry room also functions as the mud room for the young family. The tile floor and walls are easy to clean. Storage is a mix of closed cabinets, open shelving, pretty baskets and even lockers for each family member.
Textured Subway Tile, Glass Pendant Light Add Artisan Look to Laundry Room
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.
