How to revamp your laundry room
For many, the laundry room is generally only frequented when it’s time to take care of the chores. That doesn’t necessarily mean, however, that this living space doesn’t deserve decor and attention to design like the rest of the house. A revamp doesn’t have to mean gutting the room; adding a pop of color with accessories or hanging stylish wall art can give the laundry room character and turn a room that was maybe once considered an eyesore into a beautiful place.
Are you interested in revamping the laundry room? Consider the following tips for transforming the space:
Have fun with the wall colors
The laundry room is often a small space, so you need to consider a simple and bold way to make the room pop. Your walls make the perfect canvas for a new look, and designer Sandy Kozar said you can easily achieve this through paint or wall coverings with a bold design.
“Wallpaper and paint are a great way to infuse interest and energy into a laundry room,” shared Sheridan. “These spaces often are mostly utility with little room for furniture or accessories, so feel free to go bolder with color and pattern selections in this space.”
Hang wall art
If you want to add more character to the painted or covered walls, wall art makes a simple addition to the room. A theme that correlates with the living space can help you choose cute wall hangings, such as pictures and text art that describe the laundry room. Or, you can choose wall art that encourages a refreshing, natural and contemporary vibe in the space, such as flowers or other items from nature.
Utilize a new storage system
The vertical space in the laundry room is likely what you’ll mix up the most. Take advantage of the wall space you have to hang shelves and create new storage system for towels, blankets and other items that may stay in the laundry room over time. A personal decorator can help you build a custom storage system that fits perfectly in the room and matches your wants and desires as a utility space.
Bring comfort to your toes
The laundry room is often lined with linoleum or hardwood flooring, and with good reason – the quick cleanup. But this can be cold and discomforting during the winter months while you’re taking care of the clothes. Area rugs offer a simple solution to this issue and can also bring a sense of style to the space with ease. Choose an option that emphasizes your character, fits perfectly within the room and brings comfort to the space.
