Organizing the Laundry Room

10/20/15 8:00 AM / by Malta Development Malta Development

Decorating your laundry room involves having an eye for design and space. Just like garages, they can become a catch-all for miscellaneous knick-knacks. Just because you don't spend a lot of time in the laundry room, doesn't mean you can't make it look chic and organized.

Try these creative and space-saving solutions to make your laundry room pop with personality. 


If you have space under your built-in counters, you may be tempted to store your cleaning essentials underneath. This can be a great space-saving solution but it creates an eye sore. Using a fun accent fabric as a curtain is an easy fix to a glaring mess. Also, if you have an ironing board, you can save some space by hanging it up and applying some colorful wallpaper behind it.

Add Hints of Elegance

Many people make the mistake of keeping a monochromatic aesthetic because they feel the room is utilitarian and therefore can't be spiced up. Adding natural textures like wicker baskets and glass jars can add a touch of style to an otherwise pragmatic laundry space.

Mix Function with Style

Using materials like tile and stainless steel can enhance the look a room in an instant. These materials are easy to clean and can look super glossy adding to the cleanliness factor.

Go Bold

Make the time you spend doing laundry more enjoyable by painting the cabinets, walls, and other accents. Use bold and bright colors that beg for attention. A candy apple green or a stunning turquoise color can make your laundry room seem more inviting.



Add interesting floral patterns inside cabinet interiors. Details matter. Every time you open a cabinet you'll be staring into a wonderfully intricate art display. Who wouldn't want to see that?


Add Vintage or Upcycled Items

Vintage items or repurposed thrift store finds can add to fun themes for your laundry room. Not only can you make a weekend project out of updating an antique washboard (or any other item), but it also displays your creativity for everyone to see. Iron hooks and wooden boards can go a long way in transforming a blank canvas into a picturesque haven.


Be Unique

Decorating your laundry room while keeping it organized can be considered a work of art. Adding personal flairs like chandeliers or a long tree branches (for hanging clothes to dry) aren't just great ice breakers, but also reflections of your creative capacity waiting to be displayed.
