A laundry room doesn’t have to be that dull, boring place where you only go to throw dirty socks and t-shirts. You don’t need to be afraid of it. It needs to be comfortable, cool and pleasant and at the same time, highly functional. So if you’re looking for design ideas to decorate the perfect laundry room, the list below should be of great help.
But first we’d like to tell you a few secrets:
- If a laundry room is too small, you’ll have to make it look larger. It’s the same with all your other areas. So how about stacking the dryer on top of the washer (you’ll have to make sure your wash has front-loading for that to work) and save some space for a narrow cabinet to store your stuff?
- Consider using the space behind the door. It gives you more space to move around and it allows to hang your clothes, rubber gloves, or to hide your detergent maybe;
- Keep things clean. That’s easy to understand. A cluttered room makes it difficult to do laundry work — it becomes a time-consuming and frustrating job, which believe me, you don’t want to happen;
- Colors: our advice is to use light colors for the walls as well as your other laundry room furniture that you may have;
- For better space utilization you may also want to consider pulling out hamper or a narrow sliding cart between the washer and dryer, install a countertop above the washer and dryer to create a smooth surface (if there’s no space for a separate table for folding clothes, that is);
- Backsplash and floor tiles do a great job in creating a cool environment for your laundry room. Same goes for some of those throw rugs that you could place on the floor;
- One last thing to consider is if you have enough light in your laundry room. It’s preferably that you have at least one window for natural lighting. If that’s not enough you should consider installing under cabinet lighting.
Laundry room cabinets & storage
Bright Modern Laundry Room
A small chair to reach the upper cabinets, stylish countertops, matching flooring and a desk office facing the yard. Not sure about you folks, but it looks like a dream room — if a laundry room can be one.
Classic laundry room
Classic meets modern. There’s plenty of counter space, cupboard space, and the washing machine setup is sleek. The only think you should worry about is if your mom will ever come out of the laundry room again. Just make sure there’s no TV.

Fashionista’s Laundry Room
A great example of a laundry room done right. With plenty of cabinets and plenty of storage space, this setup gets the eye for breathing stylish from every little corner. Totally appreciate the elevated washer and dryer so that you don’t have to bend over too much. Love the bright light (thanks to the window) and the orderliness.
Traditional Laundry Room
The things we love about this traditional setup are the storage spaces for the laundry sorting baskets, the open shelf, and the hanging bar over the machines. The contrast between the color of the washing machines and the walls and furniture, is just as cool
Sleek Basement Laundry Room
Some of you will call this their favorite laundry room, some would be amazed by the cabinets; “what type of finish or metallic paint is it?”. The sink is close to the dryer and the washer, and there are two different levels of counter space. On top of that, the different counter heights and the lights under cabinets add to the overall stylish feel of this basement laundry room.
Wash and dry space
Good lighting is key to keeping away from a messy room. This one has plenty of it, and on top of that it’s been outfitted with personalized features that accommodate any size family. Also, there are cabinets, shelves and baskets to keep everything within reach.
Soft White Laundry Rooms
The next two designs you’ll see are all about cleanliness and being well organized. There’s plenty of storage space in those cabinets and a minimalist feel — if you can call it that way.
Custom-designed laundry room
Shane Inman is the guy behind this custom-designed laundry room that features granite countertops, an undermount sink and sweet cabinetry design for endless storage.
Spacious Laundry Room Solution
When you have too much space to organize a laundry room it can be problematic. Use this as inspiration and it won’t. Totally in love with the wooden cabinets, the closets and the hanging bar for the clean stuff.

Luxury Laundry Room
And when we said too much space, we never meant this. Because really, who has that much space to store pillows, one by one. That’s probably one of the most expensive setups so far, but at least it’s inspirational.
Laundry room with island
Why is there an island inside of this contemporary laundry room? For folding your stuff when you get it out of your washer. Just so you know, the sleek countertops are Carrara marble. Perfect, right?
Stylish Laundry Rooms
Storage, storage, storage and … storage
I think we gave you enough words about this one. It’s all about storage. You can never have too much storage, right?

Office Laundry Room?
Contrasting Laundry room
Absolutely gorgeous cabinets doing well against the white dryer and washer, with plenty of shelves for storage. But the cherry on the cake here is given by the orange accents on the grey-inspired furniture.
ClosetMaid Laundry Room
What have we here folks? A stunning laundry room that is extremely well organized with ClosetMaid MasterSuite in white. I totally dig the open drawers and the elegant flooring.

Large laundry room
Definitely a good idea having a coat/shoe closet in your laundry room. The cabinets up there, look delicious as well.
A laundry room made simple. We fancy the shelf above the washer and dryer for folding, the light under cabinets and the raised counter over washer. Sleek!

Laundry room curtains
One of the reasons why you cover up your basement doors is to suggest the feeling of an above-ground room. It seems that all furniture pieces balance out the room’s sweet look. Sold!
Pink laundry room
You’re either a Hello Kitty fan and your parents allowed you to decorate one room of the house (that will stay shut when not doing laundry), or you’ve been a pink lover your whole life and everything you’d do to your home involves the color. We’re not yet sure why you’d make your laundry room pink, but I guess it’s the same with having a bathroom pink.
