Luxurious Laundry Rooms

Let’s face it- doing laundry is a drag. I don’t think anyone really enjoys it, but it’s one of life’s inescapable realities. Something that really helps take the drudgery out of this chore is a beautiful and functional space dedicated to washing and drying clothes.

Even though the above laundry room is gorgeous, it’s still functional. The best laundry rooms should always have water resistant floors, a large sink, room for laundry baskets, and plenty of cabinetry to hide things - who wants to spoil your beautiful room with an ugly orange plastic container of detergent? I also recommend at least one full-height cabinet since you’ll probably be storing your cleaning supplies in here as well, and your mop and broom need to be kept handy, but out of sight.

Speaking of keeping things out of sight, this sleek laundry room is completely minimal, but look at all the storage they’ve included to keep it that way. I really love all the hanging space!

Another must for a laundry room is plenty of counter space to fold clothes either above or beside the washer and dryer. I’ve seen so many laundry rooms without this feature due to space limitations, but that’s when you have to get creative like this tiny laundry room with a pull-out folding shelf. Ingenious!

Another great idea is a fold-out ironing station, an idea from the past that has been updated with built-in outlets and a full-size ironing board.

Last, you may think the idea of a television in a laundry room might be too much, but a little mindless HGTV or Housewives, can make a boring chore fly by!

And nothing says crisp and clean better than an all-white room. This laundry space is my go-to inspiration!
