A Laundry Room to Love

If you live in a home where square footage is limited and the laundry area occupies the same space as the mudroom area, then you can likely relate to this design dilemma — how to make the laundry space look inviting while still being functional.

In certain situations, like ours, there isn’t really enough space to conceal the washer and dryer, so instead we embraced them being out in the open and tried to make the space as functional as possible.

To keep things light and airy and flowing with the rest of the home, we painted this space Super White by Benjamin Moore. To contrast the dark gray appliances, we chose warm gray mushroom-colored cabinetry and installed a satin nickel bar to hang freshly laundered clothing. Store your laundry detergent and other products in the cabinets above and leave a few of your most used items out on the counter for easy access.

We love to place artwork in unexpected places, like a laundry room, to help elevate the style without much effort at all. These two pieces from McGee & Co. set just the right tone and are versatile to use in almost any room.

Add a closed basket for dirty towels or other items waiting to be washed. No visible messes or piled of stacked laundry anywhere to be seen!
