Laundry Room Inspiration

Welcome to a fresh new week friends!  I tell you what, I've had about all the lazy snugly days I can handle for awhile and I'm really thankful that we are back to our normal routine today.  I'm a homebody by nature but even I've had enough.

Can you tell by the title of this post and all the pretty laundry room inspiration pictures that we have just started to freshen up our laundry room? After living with a really blah and non-functional space for the past year and a half I've realized that it's time to bite the bullet and make it a pleasant and useful space.  Our laundry room is off the kitchen and has an exit to the outside so it potentially could be transformed into a mudroom as well one day.  Currently it's got the same dingy walls we inherited (can you believe this is the one room we never painted when we moved in?  And we clean our clothes in there.)  We also shoved a giant metal shelving rack in their to help with storage but all it left us with was a big hot mess of a room that didn't really serve any good function.  It became a dumping ground.  You know, that room where you close the doors when some one stops by.  It's time to change all that.

 There is really only but so much you can do with a laundry room because it's probably one of the few spaces in your house where function over form just has to happen whether you like it or not.  And who wants to blow your budget on and over accessorize a room that really just needs to be useful.  I love how each of these rooms isn't pretending to be something it's not yet they are all so lovely.  They make that daily chore just a bit more tolerable.

I'm really excited to whip ours into shape this week!



  1. I am crazy over all of these gorgeous laundry rooms! The all white ones are so serene and clean, and the one with the de Gournay wallpaper has always been one of my favorites! Can't wait to see what you do with yours!

  2. I'm particularly drawn to the rooms with a bit of color on the cabinets! So cozy! We have a tiny LR and I so plan on using a bold wallpaper!! I'll get to it one of these days…...

  3. Gorgeous inspiration! Anything that makes laundry less of a chore gets my vote!

  4. I'm totally swooning over those lovely designs! Laundry rooms are usually the most ignored area of a house, and I've always thought of how unfair that is. I think laundry rooms have a charming aspect to them, if decorated as nicely as the ones you shared. Anyway, the inspirations look gorgeous, Julia! Thanks for sharing them! All the best to you! :)
