My Quest for Easy Updates to a Better Laundry Room

So while our wonderful attic re-model that we have embarked upon keeps my husband busy (story here,)in mind it seems that the rest of the house also needs a spruce up too! I haven’t touched my sunroom/laundry room for several years (my ADD requires that I change room decor frequently) so I began looking for ideas. Here are few that caught my eye…

Basement Laundry Makeover
Give a country-fresh facelift to a basement laundry room with white paint on the walls and ceiling. Add style and color to a plain concrete floor with tan EpoxyShield Basement Floor Coating from Rust-Oleum. Confetti-like chips add pattern and some traction. The finish resists spills and is easy to clean.

Tight Space
Squeeze a laundry center between two walls. A front-loading washer and dryer make it possible to install a folding counter with plenty of elbowroom. Storage in this tiny space is enhanced by open shelves on the wall.

Bright Ideas
With a fresh coat of bright green paint, fun fabrics, and a plan to declutter, this laundry room was transformed into a cheerful space. For a lighthearted approach to the chores done in this room, oversize laundry icons decorate the room. This creative design took the laundry room from bland to grand using a few thrifty solutions.

Room with a View
Turn a pass-through space into a laundry center. This sunroom (which leads to the yard) offers plenty of room for the washer and dryer and laundry baskets. Bonus: The large windows give the feeling of being outside instead of stuck inside doing chores.

Curtain Call
If your laundry room is in the open, install a rod and curtain to hide the area when necessary. Add hooks and shelves for storage and hanging options.
Tip: Buy a washer and dryer that stack on top of drawers which can hold laundry supplies or folded clothes.

Custom Made
If the laundry center is out in the open, use built-in shelves to contain everything. This three-piece laundry center consists of shelves on either side of the washer and dryer. Use baskets to hold laundry supplies and clothes. Place a countertop above the shelves to serve as a folding station.
