One of my most popular posts from last year looked at a great example of a laundry room/mudroom combination. Today I’m sharing my latest fresh and clean laundry room design!
The light and airy feeling is accomplished with bright whites and pale blues. White cabinetry, pale blue subway tiles, and a simple circle pattern for the porcelain floor tile creates a space that’s crisp and playful.
White as a color lends an air of total cleanliness and sophisticated taste, while practical finishes keep surfaces easy to clean and maintain.
In addition to laundry, this space serves as a utility storage room, and as a drop zone for coats, shoes, and handbags when you enter the house. Tall cabinets flank both sides of the room, with cleaning supplies stored on one side, and coats and jacket storage on the other side, all concealed behind tall cabinet doors. This laundry room is a hard-working space!
Dedicated shelves and bins are for storing shoes when you enter the home, and the additional counter space above is for folding clothes or setting up a drying rack for delicates.
Drawers store small house utilities and tools that would normally clog up a kitchen drawer, and pegs accommodate quick-grab jackets and bags, mounted at two different heights for children and adults!
Every item has a thoughtful place and has been designed around durable finishes with a cheery twist. After I finish designing a space like this for your home, you’ll look forward to doing laundry! Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves… LOL
