As anyone with a family knows, laundry is something you will be spending a lot of time doing. I need to at least one load a day and that’s just to stay on top of it, there are also extra loads like bed sheets, towels and dirty forest school clothes that need adding to it. In addition, many people use the laundry room as extra space such as a mudroom, craft room, or general storage area.
Here are 4 laundry room design ideas:
Rustic Farmhouse Theme
A rustic farmhouse theme is a great idea as it’s traditional and will never go out of style. You can choose a light coloured washing machine and opt for white cabinets then paint the walls with a pastel shade to make the space really light. You can fit a tumble dryer in too if you have space then put some worksurface on top. You can also place a rustic wooden shelf on top of the machines to safely store laundry items. For a perfect rustic look you can paint inspirational quotes on the wall.
Laundry rooms that hide the appliances and great if you are using the room for a different purpose and don’t want it to look like a laundry room. This works well in a room with large windows as you could use the space for an office. The main feature of this laundry room idea includes a stacked washer and dryer enclosed in subtle white shaker-style cabinets that can help create a uniform and clean look. This can also work in your bathroom if you have enough space. You could also consider some fully-functional laundry storage cupboards and dark marble effect porcelain floor tiles.
Laundry Pocket Turned Accent Wall
If you are someone who has always been fascinated by the idea of hidden/secret laundry rooms, then it’s time that you actually use a contemporary laundry pocket turned accent wall. This laundry room idea
is an excellent choice to make your house look more spacious and clean. Being a homeowner, if you don’t like the concept of exposed washer and dryer, you must opt for a pocket turned accent wall to hide the area when it is not in use. You can easily hide all the stuff behind a sliding barn door which can also be painted in any colour you like to match the rest of your decor.
Why not go for something a bit out there and choose metallic silver wall tiles to give a space age effect? Then you could match the theme by using silver appliances. You can leave empty spaces over the tops of the machines to make the room look more spacious. You could use lots of metal shelving for storage and also can install wall cabinets on the corners of the leading metallic wall to achieve adequate space for hanging items up.
