85 Laundry Ideas

A laundry room, also called a utility room, need not be boring and utilitarian. It is an exceptionally hardworking room in the house but sadly, often overlooked in terms of design because it is not as visible as areas like the living or dining rooms.

The fact that the laundry room is usually quite self-contained and far from visiting guests means that you could take some design risks with materials, color, design and décor of the room. Feel free to be adventurous with bold wallpaper, bright primary colors, even a mural on the ‘fifth wall’ – the ceiling. Having a row of bright orange cabinets might be a little too much for any other room, but left in the laundry room, the color therapy could work wonders for your mood on laundry day.

Whether you go for a classic black-and-white palette or an avant-garde art deco tile, stick with the failsafe formula of a functional layout. You should be able to easily lay out clothes to fold, tuck pegs and other paraphernalia into drawers and be within arm’s reach of hanging rails. If all the space you have is a slim cupboard’s worth, make full use of the vertical space with fold-away racks and storage.

Storage containers are part of the design direction too so don’t settle for anything that looks cheap and gimmicky. One way to keep the laundry room looking neat is to keep a uniform color for all your storage options as the visual uniformity acts as a design anchor amid piles of different colored clothes

Baskets in natural materials such as seagrass are a great choice to add character to an everyday room while keeping mess at bay.
