Laundry Room Idea #2: Wallpaper

An accent wall takes a small boring laundry room to a new level of style!

Wallpaper is popular right now, especially with new lines of removable peel and stick wallpaper — or use a painted accent wall or hand-stamped pattern instead.

(Look closely to see the added texture from the embossed subway tile backsplash, too!)

Laundry Room Idea #3: Floating Shelves

This large laundry room features extra countertop space, cabinets, and a desk. In a smaller laundry room, use similar floating shelves above the washer and dryer as a chic way to add organization.

Flank the shelves with cabinets (if you have the space) for extra hidden storage.

Laundry Room Idea #4: Gray Cabinets

Gray cabinetry is hot in the kitchen, so why not the laundry room, too?

You can see how this green-gray changes colors depending on the lighting, while looking great with the light gray machines and gray hexagon tile.

Laundry Room Idea #5: Combine Open & Closed Cabinets for Storage

Even if you don’t have room for a full space like this, the built-in storage on either side of the double washer and dryer area is smart for a big family.

Laundry Room Idea #6: Closet Laundry Room

See, even parade homes have small closet laundry rooms!

Okay, this was a second laundry room, but still, I love the use of space.

Keeping some open space with a beautiful tiled backsplash helps the small space feel functional and clean without being cluttered.

Laundry Room Idea #7: Textured Wall Treatment

Home by Visionary Homes and Possibilities for Design, Doris Pearlman

This entire home is an example of great texture in wall treatments, flooring, cabinetry, and even the ceiling in some rooms! So why should the laundry room be plain.

This really simple horizontal board and batten treatment would be so easy to add to your laundry room, too!

Laundry Room Idea #8: Buffalo Check Tile Floor

This checkered plaid flooring style is easy to get (and DIY) with basic solid color square tiles, laid in a pattern to form the popular buffalo check pattern on the floor.

 

Laundry Room Idea #9: Built-in Machines

Home by Murdock Builders (see more of this home’s master bedroom)

Get a high-end look in your laundry by building cabinets around the machines! This replaces the pedestal and elevates the washer and dryer while adding so much functional storage.

Keeping open shelving with baskets is a great way to organize odds and ends and laundry baskets, too.

Laundry Room Idea #10: Bold Colored Cabinetry

I love the muted deep green color of these laundry room cabinets!

The stacked washer and dryer also free up space for a very ample amount of storage and a nice length of countertop in a small laundry room, too.

Laundry Room Idea #11: Add a TV

Home by AJ Construction with The Design Studio at Split Rock (Julia Childs)

This framed TV is so unobtrusive, and perfect for folding laundry or working on other projects at the table in this dreamy large laundry room! (I’ve got a crush on that chandelier, too — found a similar one here.)

No space for a TV? Use an easy DIY tablet stand to hold your phone or tablet in whatever space you’re folding laundry.

Also, peep that chalkboard with a sconce over it… such a great feature and so easy to DIY! Use our plans to build the message board — just swap in a chalkboard panel for the glass in the tutorial.

 

Laundry Room Idea #12: Decorate with Greenery

If a room feels lifeless, adding something living helps! Greenery and plants don’t actually have to require watering to add to the aesthetic, though 😉

This classic black and white room with wood floors (or luxury vinyl plank that looks like wood) maintains a comfortable and homey farmhouse feel with a few baskets and plants for decor.

Laundry Room Idea #13: Folding Counter Island

This laundry room has so much going for it! The custom cabinetry built in around the stacked machines gives so much space, and then the sink vanity details, the hanging light fixture… I could go on  and on.

If you can make room for it, a folding counter or island like this is a great way to make your laundry room useful!

Laundry Room Idea #15: Double Duty Pet Space

Multipurpose Laundry Room with Dog Kennel
Home by K Welch Homes with Natalie Welch Design (see more of this home’s master bathroom)

This farmhouse style laundry room features a buffalo check tile floor — and a cozy built-in dog kennel under the countertop.

Using the laundry room as a central station for your pet is a space-smart way to integrate your dog into your home without sacrificing style. (Just be certain to keep detergent and other cleaners out of your pet’s reach!)

I also really love the built-in gift wrap storage in the open shelving above. That would be really easy to build yourself with some dowels.

Laundry Room Idea #16: Stacked Machines

Home by K Welch Homes with Natalie Welch Design (see more of this home’s master bathroom)

You can use a small laundry area like this efficiently by using stacking machines to take advantage of vertical space. Many luxury closets have a washer and dryer right in the walk-in closet!

This closet-sized laundry room has  a classic black and white tile floor and plenty of storage, plus room for decor and folding.

Laundry Room Idea #17: Multiple Lighting Sources

Laundry Room Lighting Ideas, Remodelaholic SGPH 2021 H06
Home by BR Homes with Nicole Baker

One feature I always notice in high-end homes is the amount and variety of lighting. This laundry room features, functional under-cabinet lighting, pretty overhead light sconces and ceiling lights, and LED can-style lights to create a well-lit and comfortable room even without any windows.

Laundry Room Idea #18: Double Washer and Dryer (in a small laundry room!)

Laundry Room Idea #20: Classic White Cabinets and Flooring

A room that does the cleaning should look clean! This classic white laundry room pairs a modern circular mosaic tile with white cabinets and marble countertops for a stunning classic style. Get more tips for this modern white laundry room here. 

A roman shade is also a great pick for a laundry room window, since it looks great while raised or lowered. You can even make your own roman shade or hack a set of cheap mini blinds.

Laundry Room Idea #21: Patterned Tile

If you’re not sure about having a modern patterned tile throughout your home, start small with the laundry room flooring!

This cement patterned tile steals the show, but you can get the same look by painting your existing flooring or even using floor tile decal stickers.

 

Laundry Room Idea #21: Industrial Pipe Shelving w/Hanging Rod

Home by Shelby Homes with Gatehouse No. 1 Furniture and Design (see more of this home tour)

 

 

This two-tone black and white laundry room features checkered tile and fantastic storage space in all the cabinets. What caught my eye was how seamlessly the hanging rod integrates with the modern pipe shelving.

Pipe shelving is an easy DIY, too. Spray paint the shelving hardware for an updated modern style to match this look, or keep it natural black for classic industrial look.

Laundry Room Idea #22: Cabinets to the Ceiling

Home by David Weekley Homes

 

In case you haven’t noticed — floating shelves and cabinetry are a go-to for laundry storage. This laundry room is right off the garage and has tall ceilings, so taking the cabinetry all the way to the ceiling maximizes  the space and makes it feel nice and large.

If you’re not tall like we are, you might also want to have stepstool storage nearby 😉

Laundry Room Idea #23: Plaid Tile Floor

Basic square tile gets a whole new look with this buffalo plaid style flooring!  The gray subway tile backsplash adds some contrast up the wall, and white shaker cabinets will be easy to keep clean.
