Cabinet Options For Laundry Room Spaces
A laundry room is a small area that’s used to wash and dry clothes. It usually has a washing machine, dryer, ironing board, and even storage space for detergents, fabrics softeners and other cleaning products or is a multipurpose space. When planning a design for your laundry room it’s important to have an organized layout in mind; otherwise, you may end up spending too much time looking for items in your cabinets.
White Laundry Room Cabinets

If you’re working with a small laundry room, look for cabinets that are white or very light. This will let your eyes focus on colors and patterns in other parts of your design, like fabrics and tiles. With white laundry room cabinets, you have many more options when it comes to other materials in the space like wall colors, flooring, countertops and more.
Black or Gray Laundry Room Cabinets

If you are looking for a more modern and professional look, black or gray laundry room cabinets are an excellent choice. They offer a more professional appearance than white cabinets, but also give your laundry room some much-needed bold style. If your home has lots of black or gray accents, these are certainly colors that you should consider using in your laundry room as well. However, if you want to maintain a lighter color scheme throughout your home, these colors will work well with that too!

Best Flooring Ideas for Laundry Rooms
If you are designing a laundry room, it’s vital to include flooring that is easy to clean and resistant to staining. One of our personal favorites for laundry rooms is porcelain tile (yes, even in a wet area). It’s highly durable and stain-resistant, making it perfect for high-traffic areas like a laundry room. Many porcelain tiles come in small tiles as well as large format sizes, so they are ideal if you have limited space.

Laundry Room Shelving Ideas
There are a few different methods for adding storage to your laundry room, from pulling out a set of drawers to installing wire shelving in your cabinets. The latter is far easier and offers more options when it comes to finding a style that fits your space. Plus, if you’re looking for an extra way to create more storage, consider installing wall-mounted shelves above your washer and dryer—they’ll give you some prime real estate for storing folded clothes while freeing up floor space, and also presents the opportunity to add cute decor into the space.
Laundry Room Organization Ideas
Organization in a laundry room can be a bit difficult. Since you’re moving in and out of your laundry room all day, it’s important to have an organized space. There are many ways to do so, but here are a couple of laundry room design ideas that may help you stay on top of things. One of the best ways to enhance organization in a laundry room is to incorporate built-in cabinet organizers. Another way is to make a list of the things you find in your laundry room, then purchase matching baskets or boxes in order to store the items in a stylish way.
Best Design Ideas for Laundry Rooms
While choosing a design for your laundry room, try to go with something that complements all of your other rooms. This can be difficult to do if you have only one or two rooms in your home, but there are many ways you can blend things together. For example, if your living room is done up in bold colors and dark tones like oranges and greens, consider going with light colors for your laundry room so it stands out from other spaces in your home.

Laundry Room Wallpaper
Wallpaper in a laundry room is a fun way to add a hint of character to your space. If you’re using your laundry room as an extension of your living space, consider putting some decorative wallpaper on one of your walls. It could also act as a backdrop for one or more cabinets and add interest to an otherwise utilitarian space. This idea would work well in small spaces and even in apartments, where you may be working with limited options for decorating.

DIY Laundry Room Countertop
For an extra stylistic and fully functional element of your laundry room space, consider adding a countertop over your washer and dryer. This can be easily framed out and DIY’d for a look similar to the picture above and will add not only more functionality, but will make the space appear more finished and inviting.
Light & Neutral Laundry Room Paint Colors
Laundry rooms are a space where cleanliness is the main goal, therefore you might want to consider matching the style of the space to the purpose. To do this, use colors and materials that allude to cleanliness and simplicity. Colors found in nature present this feeling best, like whites, beiges, greens, blues, and yellows. Materials could be anything from wood, to wicker, rattan, concrete, natural stone or bamboo.
Built-In Laundry Closet
If you live in an apartment or smaller sized home, then you know the struggle when it comes to doing laundry, organizing the laundry space, and decorating the area. But it doesn’t have to be a feat! Laundry appliances that are placed in a closet can be easily built-in with surrounding cabinets inexpensively. By incorporating built-ins, you don’t have to worry about the closet doors being open and exposing a disorganized, unstylish laundry room space.

Mudroom Laundry Room Combination
Many homes built in the last 20 years have incorporated the washer and dryer into the mudroom space of the home, creating a unique multi-purpose space. With multi-purpose spaces, it’s important to make sure that everything still meshes together and doesn’t look out of place. Installing built-ins around the laundry area, a seating area and ample storage space will create a multi-functional and stylish mudroom-laundry combination.

Laundry Room Dog Wash Station
If you have some extra or unused space in your laundry room, incorporating a dog-wash station adds another useful function to the space and also presents the opportunity to include an extra pop of color or design element. If you don’t have pets, a large trough sink could come in handy for washing too large or too dirty of items to be washed in a kitchen sink or bathtub.
