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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
