When designing your home, it's easy to forget about the laundry room. However, this does not have to be the case. Laundry rooms can be both functional and beautiful! With just a few simple tweaks you can turn your laundry room into a little hidden gem within your home. Depending on the amount of space you have available, there are a few items that can make your laundry room extra special. One must-have in a laundry room is storage... whether open or closed this is key to making the room a success. If you do not have space for cabinetry or shelving you can always use nice storage baskets to help keep all of your supplies tidy. Having a countertop surface, a sink and incorporating hanging space are all added bonuses in our book, and are ideal components in making a perfect laundry room! If you have the space, you can take it a step further and the laundry room can also function as a mudroom within your home. Other features to consider incorporating into your laundry room are: task lighting, a place to sit, area rugs, cubbies for additional/personal storage and artwork. An easy way to instantly brighten up this space is to play with the finishes. We love using interesting tiles for the flooring, adding wallpaper for a nice surprise or even painting the cabinetry a fun color. All of these ideas create a more inviting space and allow the laundry room to not just be a secondary space within your home. Below are some beautiful laundry rooms that we hope will inspire you as much as they have us!
