Laundry Room Design Ideas & Makeovers

Love this navy blue color scheme from ‘Noelle Interiors‘! This laundry room has a great coastal vibe, but also has a clean look and feel. The patterned tile floor makes this space anything but boring! Note the storage shelves above the sink. Can you have too much laundry room storage? Nope!


An all white laundry room design always looks fresh and clean. This one from ‘Barlow Reid Design‘ has tons of storage and a hanging bar to air dry clothes.


Here is another example of how a graphic floor in a laundry room design can take a utilitarian room and make it amazing! From ‘In The Deets’ via ‘Houzz’.


This farmhouse style laundry room from ‘Leighanne LaMarre Interiors’ via ‘Houzz‘ has the most charming decor ideas. Floating shelves and a countertop give plenty of workspace, while that B&W floor and the cabinet colors make it so pretty!


This laundry room makeover from ‘Katrina Blair‘ started out as a small laundry space with no storage or place to fold and sort clothes. They added the floating shelves and the countertop themselves, and have a compete tutorial for that. Keep in mind, you must have a front loading washer to be able to install a counter in your laundry room. Oh, and it’s pretty!


Jenna Kate at Home‘ turned a boring and inefficient tiny laundry room into the cutest spot to fold socks! They added some style with paint and their DIY peel and stick vinyl floor (yep, they have a tutorial)! They also DIY’ed their wood countertop. We love the hanging rod, and if you go check out her post, you will see the other side of the space is a mudroom with lots of great organizing ideas too!


Take some laundry room organization ideas from ‘Jessica Welling‘. She renovated this room by stacking her washer and dryer and adding an Ikea wardrobe system for storage. Add a pegboard and a place to hang the ironing board, and you have an amazing laundry room!


This laundry room closet from ‘Sugar & Cloth‘ is just that… a closet. They not only made is gorgeous, it has all the organization they need as well. A small cabinet leaves room for a tension drying rod, and their wooden countertops give space for storage and sorting. Did we mention gorgeous?


Live Free Creative‘ knows how to make the most with small laundry room ideas… Well again, this isn’t really a room. Just a closet. But, it works! Stacked appliances, wire shelving inside the cabinet doors and a hanging laundry bag make this one organized laundry space.

    I did not see any small laundry rooms

    My washer and dryer were placed around the water heater in a very tight space. The washer is to the left just inside the door, the water heater was in the corner and the dryer was directly in front of you as you stand at the door (no space to walk into the room, just step up to the machines.) The water heater has been replaced with an outdoor-mounted tankless so I have the corner empty now. I could have a bit more room if I placed the machines side-by-side now but the problem is moving them. The washer is direct plumbed into the wall where it is and the dryer is vented to the outside from where it sits. The corners of the machines touch in the tight space so I can’t put shelves or anything in that corner because I can’t get to it. Help?????

    I find it hilarious that these are the images you use for a small laundry. My laundry is 2.5x2m and is also the back entrance to the house. There is a single tall skinny cupboard, a laundry trough, and we managed to fit both a washing machine and dryer by choosing front loaders and having the dryer mounted on the wall. The images here look ridiculously huge in comparison.
