There are a few rooms in our home that we don’t really think about decorating. Hallways and powder rooms are two of them, but perhaps the most neglected room in our homes is the laundry room. Despite spending hours every week in the laundry room, we rarely think to decorate this room. Maybe if we added some design style to the laundry room it might make doing laundry a little bit more enjoyable! Maybe? Probably not, but having a pretty laundry room might help us dread the task a little less.
If you have a laundry room on the second floor or main floor of your home, you probably already have finished flooring in the room. Basement laundry rooms tend to have cement floors. Adding laminate or tile to a basement laundry room floor would make the space feel more like a finished room.
Painting the walls of the laundry room a happy color you love could improve your mood when you are in the room. This is especially true for basement laundry rooms. Cabinets can be painted or replaced with more stylish cabinet doors. Open shelves can be put up to store laundry supplies in pretty glass jars. A folding drawer or cabinet makes drying sweaters neater and keeps the room less cluttered.
Adding a chandelier or other fun hanging light can give an extra bit of style to the utilitarian room. If your laundry room has a window, put up decorative window treatments like cafe curtains or roman shades.
