It’s rare to meet anyone who actually likes doing laundry. It’s time consuming, and seemingly endless. What makes it worse is that the laundry room, if you have one, is usually the last place you want to spend so much time. It’s often dimly lit, void of the cozy features of the rest of your home, noisy from the machines, and filled with clothes and dripping bottles of laundry detergent. Therefore, laundry rooms tend to get mixed in with attics and basements as some of the most depressing rooms in the house.
If you want a space that is comfortable, warm, and light, then consider a few of the designs below. They bring in color and differing styles to show you that a laundry room doesn’t have to be be just another utility closet.
This elegant laundry rooms brings in bright but elegant color and mixes it with unique pieces such as the large woven basket above the cabinets, and the antique photos and farmhouse sink. The rug ties them all together, pulling in the colors and bringing in that feeling of “living” space. It is always a benefit to add such things as plants, photos, rugs, and brilliant lighting into a space to make it feel warmer, and to tie it into the house as another space that deserves to be occupied.
Just because you don’t have much space in your home doesn’t mean you have to give up on the luxury of a laundry room of sorts. A bathroom laundry closet is not only convenient, but it maximizes your homes square footage by utilizing ingenious and beautiful shelving that serve the purpose of holding all your needed laundry and bathroom items.
Subway Tiles & Sleek Lines
Subway tiles are enormously popular for many spaces, including bathrooms, kitchen and well… laundry rooms. There’s a good reason for this, and we don’t think it will go out of style any time soon. If you like the soft palette with a timeless style then this may be your best design. The beams, woven baskets, and barnwood door with the accent pieces on the shelves and counter give this room a farmhouse look. But the subway tile, lights, black frames, and metal chair add in an industrial touch that make this space alluring and unabashedly beautiful.
There is so much wood in this room, which gives the space a warm and charming feel. The knickknacks on the shelves, the vibrant rug, and the many colorful flowers make the room feel like anything but a laundry room. The large window, yellow walls, and exceptional colors make this space bright and natural.
You don’t have to use a ton of colors to create a space that’s warm and cozy. What you need are accents. pops of color, clever or natural lighting. In the room below you will see that there are plenty of large windows, gorgeous tiled floors and ship lap walls. The shelves are glassed and enclosed in a farmhouse style. There is an antique table in the corner, and plants on the counter. It’s a space that looks as if it has been lived in. Like there has been many days of peeling off wet snow clothes after the children have gone sledding. Many days of flowers from the family garden being put into vases. Hours of quiet conversations and phone calls removed from the rest of the household.
The life you put into a room, and the small accents you place, make all the difference in the world when becoming a space you want to be in. Don’t ever let it be dull.
