Ahh, the laundry room. It’s not usually the most glamorous room in the house. In fact, it’s probably anything but glamorous.
It’s the “drop zone” where everyone puts miscellaneous belongings when they come home for the day. It’s the the room where the door stays closed to prevent any guests from seeing the mess. It’s a place of storage for many random items, such as dog food, medicine, extra batteries, cleaning supplies, beach towels, etc.
Needless to say, this is not the room that we usually bring people to when we’re giving a tour of our house.
But, wouldn’t it be nice if you did? Wouldn’t it be great to be proud of your laundry room’s design and layout and to want to show it off to visitors?
Many of us keep our laundry room the same because we can’t think of what else to do differently with it. If you’re in need of some clean inspiration, check out these laundry rooms below.
- If You Have A Lot of Space
Many don’t have an entire room to devote solely to laundry in their house, but if you do, you have much more to work with! Isn’t this layout great? Not only is it appealing to the eye, but it is extremely efficient! This laundry room features a convenient, built-in clothes rod above the washer and dryer and a small sink, which is great for treating stains and hand-washing. The white mosaic iridescent tile backsplash adds to the cleanliness and natural atmosphere of this room. And you can never have too much cabinet or shelf space!
- If You Don’t Have A Lot of Space
If your laundry room is less of a room and more of a closet, this renovation might be for you. Usually closet laundry rooms have just enough room for a washer, dryer and a bit of storage. You can maximize your space with the above layout, which includes cabinets, a clothing rod and a folding counter. Also, the backsplash makes all the difference by adding a unique element to the space. Although it is nice that you can close the shutter doors, you may love it so much that you keep them open!
- If You Have an Overwhelmingly Large Amount of Laundry
Laundry can definitely be overwhelming at times. Lights. Darks. Kids. Babies. Delicates. Stains. Towels. Hand wash. If you feel like your house is overrun with baskets upon baskets of clothes, this might be a good idea for you. You can sort the clothing as you wish and simply shut the pull out doors to eliminate the overflowing-laundry-basket eye sore. If you’re looking for a quick fix, this is an easy addition to any laundry room and can make all the difference.
- If You Love Color
Many people associate laundry rooms with the color white. White laundry baskets, white shelves, white appliances. But, if you love color, this is a great room to have fun with the color of your walls! You can add a pop of color without it being distracting. This soft, mint paint color looks great with the white accents in the room, and yet, it’s still provides a relaxing environment.
Laundry rooms don’t have to be boring. They can be whatever you want them to be. Let them reflect your family’s personality and increase your functionality. You can love your laundry room.
