Spruce Up Your Laundry Room with These Tips

 

Your laundry room may be the most functional room in your house, but that doesn't mean it has to look boring. You can have a color, pattern, and design scheme here just like any other room in your home. To start, consider adding cabinets in a uniform color. Not only does this give you a place to store detergent, fabric softener, and other laundry room necessities, it brings a sense of calm and order to the room. If you already have cabinets and they look outdated, a fresh paint job can do wonders.

Update the Walls and Countertops

Most people don't consider painting the walls of their laundry room or adding wallpaper, but why not? This provides an attractive backdrop to the cabinets and helps the room feel less chaotic. If your laundry room doesn't have countertops already, consider adding some. White quartz is a modern look that adds a sense of beauty and cleanliness to any room.

Add Style and Improve Functionality

Who says you can't place artwork on the wall of your laundry room? It certainly gives you something pleasant to look at while you complete this tedious chore. If you're teaching kids how to wash and dry clothes, consider putting a small bench in the laundry room. This is both stylish and functional. It also gives you a place to sit and read a book or play on your iPhone while you wait for the laundry to finish.

It Could Be Time for an Upgrade

New washers and dryers are more sleek and attractive than previous generations of these machines. If your laundry room looks dumpy no matter what you do, it could be time to trade in your appliances for something new. In addition to maximizing space, your new machines should provide you with greater energy efficiency than your current ones do.
