Finding a way to make the most of a cozy laundry nook can have its fair share of challenges. When it comes to designing the space, think along the lines of low effort-high impact decor accents, opting for a reserved number of decorative elements that can go the distance. Bring in a playfully-printed wallpaper, like Yellow Brick Home did, or a pop of color via an unexpected source.
Scandinavian minimalism comes to life in this whitewashed laundry designed by Whiting Architects, where a beautifully structured approach to the design results in a streamlined aesthetic, which manages to seamlessly incorporate all of the essentials within a compact frame.
When in need of inspiration for decorating the laundry, take style cues from neighboring rooms. From the subway tile backsplash to the bold navy cabinets, this spot designed by Bre Bertolini incorporates one of our favorite kitchen trends. Minimalist shelving for a handful of essentials and decorative accents complete the scene, along with the textured landing pad.
While most may be inclined to earmark a neutral palette for the laundry room, we’re all for decorating the space with a dynamic color scheme, much like the fierce green in this room designed by Slava Balbek & Artem Zavarzin. Think of it as your opportunity to get creative with a shade you would otherwise find too intimidating.
That being said, we can’t deny the timelessly flawless aesthetic of an all-white space flooded with natural light. In this dreamy spot, designed by Cindy Black of Hello Kitchen, a monochromatic scheme is subtly elevated by warm wood accents and an intricate floor tile.
No laundry room should be exempt from a show-stopping accent piece, especially if that comes in the form of a vibrantly artistic wallpaper. Blues rule in this impeccably designed spot by Dina Bandman that even comes with a bold, subway tiled doggie bath!
For the laundry room that’s void of ample counter space, a small corner table can go a long way in terms of offering up additional space for either storage or simply as a spot where you can fold clothes. Opt for a compact folding table should your laundry room run on the smaller side.
From cleaning supplies to that extensive collection of linens, cabinets are essential to maintaining an organized laundry room. Incorporate built-in storage to prevent clutter and to keep your housekeeping essentials cleverly concealed, like designer Ashley Winn did in this room.
