20 of the Most Beautiful Laundry Room Ideas

The laundry room is one of the busiest rooms in the house, especially for larger families. Laundry rooms are also often the most dreaded room in the home. They are, many times, small, dark and dingy and ca easily become cramped. But your laundry room doesn’t have to be that way. You can spruce it up and make it a welcoming room that is both beautiful, and functional. With the following tips, you can create a beautiful laundry room that you won’t mind having to spend time in, tending to your family’s laundry.

Add a utility sink

After all, this is a utility room, which means it is utilized for all kinds of chores and tasks. Utility sinks can be one of the biggest components of a laundry room. They are used as the “catch-all” sink that you can do anything in without worries of contaminating your kitchen cooking area and sink. Use your utility sink for soaking items and clothes, rinsing paint brushes, bathing your dog, plus hundreds of other ideas. You will need a water source to your laundry room where the sink will go and you can choose from a variety of sizes and materials they are constructed of.

Design open shelves for easy access

So many things are stored in the laundry room and you will want easy access to these items. Cleaning supplies are often stored in utility rooms, pet care items, whatever you don’t mind being exposed and out in plain view, having open shelves gives you a good, and quick visual to what you need. You can also incorporate baskets for holding miscellaneous items. Baskets give the room a neater, cleaner, more aesthetically pleasing look to the room as opposed to other catch-all bins. Choose from wire, whicker or another type of basket that goes with your décor.

Cabinetry   

Because the laundry room is one of the wettest and higher risk rooms for getting wet, due to leaks, the cabinetry in your laundry room should be water resistant in order to prevent any damage, should there ever be a problem with a water leak. Choose durable and easy to clean countertops and flooring. The best materials for a laundry room are either ceramic or stone tiles.

Choose bright, light and airy colors

A lot of times, laundry rooms are off in a closed-in area of the house with little to no natural light. Choose a light colored wall paint to help open the room and area by visual effect. Light colors make a small area feel bigger and less confining and claustrophobic. White trim helps to make the color “pop” and add another element of beauty, as well as a visual openness effect.
