How can I make my laundry room beautiful?
Wondering how to turn your lackluster laundry room into a stunning sanctuary? It’s a lot easier than you might think! Here are our top tips for creating a beautiful laundry room in your home.
Embrace colorful laundry room decor
You might want to keep your whites and your colors separate when it comes to your actual laundry, but for your laundry room, adding some color to your white space can make a huge difference! We love this example from Emily Henderson – those muted blue cabinets against the white walls, topped off with the wicker baskets, is gorgeous! Ps- we have lots of ideas on how you can DIY organization baskets with cardboard boxes if you love the idea but don’t want to go buy new decor.
Say yes to laundry room wallpaper
Especially in a small space, a splash of wallpaper can make a huge difference in adding some style to your laundry room. If you need proof, just check out this transformation from Start At Home! A splash of wallpaper and some fun laundry decor completely rejuvenates this room.

What can you put on a laundry wall?
Decorating your laundry walls is one of the easiest, most effective ways to upgrade your laundry room decor. If you’re looking for some inspiration, here are some of our favorite ways of making the most of your laundry room walls.
A fresh coat of paint for laundry room walls makes a huge difference
If you don’t have a lot of time or you’re on a tight budget, you can still make a big difference to your laundry room by simply freshening up the walls with a nice new coat of paint. Just look at the difference that fresh, clean walls can make in this laundry from Lauren Koster Creative!
Use your walls for extra shelving
If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that having extra laundry room shelving is never a bad thing! In what’s usually a tight space, turning your walls into extra storage with shelves is a clever way to de-clutter your laundry room. As well as storing laundry supplies on your shelves, you can add cute laundry room decor like plants, photos, or artwork. Look at this gorgeous example from Love of Family and Home!
Set the tone with fun laundry room signs
Another great laundry room decor idea is to add signs to your laundry room. Fun signs are not only decorative, but also give your laundry room a bit of personality. We love this fun example from Peony+Honey!
Laundry room ideas with a top-loading washer
A top-loading washer can be more convenient than a front-loader, especially if you don’t like bending down to put your clothes in. One of the downsides of having a top-loading washer in your laundry room is that it usually means you have less space to play with, as you can’t stack your washer and dryer.
This isn’t a huge problem, but it does mean you need to be a bit more mindful of how you use your space. Here are some of our favorite laundry room ideas with a top-loading washer. No matter your style, there’s something here you’ll love!
