1. Laundry Room Drying Rack Design

Hanging laundry to dry is a great way to save energy, prevent shrinking and fading, and keep your home smelling fresh. A drying rack doesn’t need to be plain and boring, though—there are many ways to incorporate it into your laundry room decor ideas.

2. Chalkboard Paint for Laundry Room Walls

Chalkboard paint has been around for a while, but it’s still one of the most fun laundry room decor ideas. Use chalkboard paint on one wall, a small decal or a framed chalkboard to turn your laundry room into where you want to spend time. You can write messages, lists, grocery reminders, or even doodle while waiting for the washing machine to finish its cycle.

3. Farmhouse Style Laundry Room Designs

It’s no secret that farmhouse style is all the rage these days—from farmhouse sinks in kitchens across the country to rustic-looking dining tables, homeowners love everything about farmhouse style. Why not bring a bit of that aesthetic into your laundry room? Just because the washer and dryer might be tucked away from sight doesn’t mean you can’t cutely decorate them.

4. Storage Organization Ideas for Small Laundries

If your laundry room is small, keeping all of your necessary supplies in order can be challenging. Try using small crates and baskets on shelves to keep them organized, or just place them directly on top of the washer and dryer. This will help declutter a small space and make it easier to find what you need when you need it!

5. Vintage Laundries

One of our favorite trends in laundry room decor is vintage looks. These can be achieved by adding old signs, baskets, lamps, and even an old ironing board! By giving your laundry room’s decor an old-school feel, your washing experiences are sure to take on a classic vibe.

6. Wallpaper for Your Walls

You can have wallpaper in the laundry room just like anywhere else! Just because it’s where your washer and dryer live doesn’t mean you have to keep it boring. You can find wallpaper online or at home improvement stores in every color of the rainbow, so go ahead and get creative! You’ll love what it does for your space.

7. Creative Shelving for Your Space

Shelves aren’t just for books! You can use shelves in your laundry room for towels, hampers, detergents that are easy to reach, or even plants to brighten up the space. Just make sure you get solid shelving material—you don’t want to come home from work one day to find all your stuff on the ground!

8. Wall Art for Your Decor

A simple way to decorate your laundry room is to hang some artwork on the walls. It looks elegant, but it also gives your space color and personality. And as a bonus, if you hang up framed pictures of people or places that are important to you, seeing them will make doing laundry more enjoyable!

9. Modern Vintage Rooms

If you have a vintage-style laundry room, consider adding some modern touches. A colorful tile can give your space an updated look that still has some retro charm.

10. Wooden Crates for Storage in a Room

Wooden crates are a great way to bring some natural wood into your space while also adding storage. You can use them independently or stack them up for even more storage (and even more visual interest).

11. Painted Cabinets for Your Laundry Room

You can create an eye-catching display with these painted cabinets! They’re great for storing items like detergent bottles, clothespins, and other small necessities that might get lost in the chaos of your laundry room floor. You could even paint them different colors depending on what type of items they contain – soaps/detergents could be one color. In contrast, other miscellaneous items could be another hue (like yellow).

12. Barn Door to Hide the Washer and Dryer

If you want to hide your washer and dryer, try using a barn door! It’ll give you extra privacy while still letting light in from outside (no need for additional lighting). Plus, it’ll add character to any space!

13. Stylish Sliding Doors for Your Storage Spaces

The laundry room is the perfect place to put sliding doors. They add a rustic charm that works whether you have a farmhouse theme or modern style in your home. Plus, they take up less space, which is helpful in your laundry room, where you need all the space you can get.

14. Flooring Options to Make You Happy in Your Space

No matter your decorating style, there’s a flooring option that will work for you. From subway tile to concrete to luxury vinyl tile, your laundry room floor can be more than just utilitarian.

15. White on White Decor Ideas

To make your laundry room look as clean and organized as possible, paint the walls white, or even better, install a new coat of white paint on everything (we know how much work that is!). Then choose a neutral print for towels and other linens that will coordinate with the rest of the room. And finally, add a few bright pops of color here and there to spice things up.

16. Closet Design Ideas to Create a Helpful Space in Your Home

Laundry rooms are often small spaces haphazardly strewn with supplies, but closet design ideas can help you create an organized space in your home. Use vertical space in your laundry room with built-in shelves and cabinets to hold detergent, cleaning supplies, and linens. Closet organizers are a great way to keep your laundry area looking clean and neat while giving you the space to put everything away at the end of the day.

17. Laundry Room Baskets as Decor

Have you ever thought about using baskets in your laundry room? If you have, then there are some great things that you can do with them! They’re easy to decorate with, inexpensive, and a great way to bring a little bit of personal style into the laundry area.

18. Keep It Simple With a Neutral Color Scheme

The simplest way to make a room feel cozy is to stick with neutral colors. Try using cool grays, whites, creams, and beiges in combination with wood tones and metallics. The look is warm, inviting, and feels tranquil without overwhelming the senses.

19. Wall Decals

A wall decal is a great way to personalize your laundry room without spending too much money. There are so many different styles of wall decals available online, so don’t be afraid to search for what you want before committing! You’ll be glad that you did when your friends come over and compliment how cool it looks in there!

20. Install a Pegboard

A pegboard is a great way to keep your laundry room feeling organized and clutter-free. You can hang anything from wire baskets to clothespins to store your miscellaneous items. For extra style points, paint the pegboard in an accent color that matches the rest of your decor!
