Laundry- a chore everyone wants to avoid yet has to be done. If you’re lucky enough to have a laundry room it might be time to upgrade, it and make it your next favorite place in your home. When it comes to designing the laundry room, many take the approach of simply throwing in a washer and dryer and calling it a day. But, while laundry day might not be fun or even glamorous, creating a space that is gorgeous to look at yet functional could be exactly what you need. The following laundry rooms do just that! But in a modern way.
Contemporary Color Scheme
When it comes to the laundry room many might simply consider a white or neutral palette, but we are taking it up a notch and recommending a contemporary color scheme. Laundry room essentials are now coming in multiple different colors; therefore, its easier to have a contemporary appeal to the room, or you could even consider painting your wall a daring color as well.
This year we have seen a rise in the love of glossy paint. Keeping that in mind, take your laundry room to the next level by simply painting your cabinets with a glossy finish. The glossy finish will upgrade the room in the simplest manner. If you want to take it a step further using a colorful glossy paint.
For a crisp and clean feel in the room use multiple neutral hues and weave them into your décor. Doing so creates this sense of peace that is perfect for those that simply want to have a chic, laundry room that is minimal yet purposeful.
Double the Function
Why have one set of washer and dryer when you can have two? Having a laundry room that offers two washer and dryers is always a good idea, particularly if you have a large family or if you do laundry constantly throughout the week.
Okay, we know not everyone has a large laundry room, some have a smaller space or even a closet that has been transformed into a quiet laundry space. If this is the case with you, the key is keeping it minimal and adding charm. Do so, by having the essentials you need and add personal tidbits here are there that showcase your personality.
Hues of Blue
Blue is a classic color that works well with any color pairing; therefore, it only makes sense to incorporate it in a bold manner in the laundry room. Paint an accent wall a vivid shade of blue and allow it to become the main focus of the room, for an expanding effect.
Change Your Lighting
One of the very first things you might notice from a laundry room is that the lighting is quite dim or there aren’t many light fixtures in it. We recommend changing up your lighting and adding additional light fixtures or even a chandelier.
All in One
If you have a laundry room and don’t have a sink you might want to add one in order to have an all in one space. Doing so, allows you to have a room you can use for everything include stain removal or even folding laundry.
Choose two colors and work them in the room. The key is using two contrasting hues such as a bold color and a lighter bit. Having this contrast creates a modern approach that is always a good idea. You might even want to add patterns that bring the appeal together.
Daring Accent Wall
Keeping with the theme of using color, consider having a well-patterned accent wall. Having this display creates a unique aesthetic that is beautiful and intriguing all at once. Consider having a repetitive pattern for that stark appeal that brings the room back to life.
