Paint your laundry room white

Laundry rooms are usually small and stuffy rooms. By the time you put the washing machine and dryer, there is hardly any room left for anything else. So the goal is to make the room look bigger. One of the ways we can do this is to paint the walls white. The white color makes the room look bigger than it is. And not only that, your laundry room will look cleaner and tidier. White color is always in style, so you don’t have to worry that your room will look dull and old-fashioned. In addition, the white color is relaxing and will make those days when you have to do laundry less stressful.

Add a personal touch

Laundry rooms often get forgotten and not given enough attention like other rooms in the house. While in other rooms we have decorations and details, in laundry rooms, we usually skip them. This is a mistake, and it makes laundry rooms look impersonal, like ordinary public laundries. You should add some personal details to make the atmosphere in the laundry room warmer and more pleasant. You can add some family pictures or decorations. Add a soft rug or pretty curtains. To freshen up the room a little, add some potted plants. Considering that you will spend a lot of time in this room, it is worth making an effort to decorate it nicely.

Buy a comfortable couch/sofa for your laundry room

Has it ever happened to you that you are waiting for the machine to finish washing, and you have nowhere to sit in the laundry room? Or folding washed clothes standing all the time? It probably has, and you know how much it makes the whole process more tiring. That’s why you should invest in a stylish, comfortable couch or a sofa if you have space in your laundry room. It doesn’t have to be a big couch/sofa, but just big enough for you to sit down and comfortably wait for your machine to finish washing. You need to find a sofa that will match the rest of your room. This is an excellent opportunity to add some color to your laundry room. For example, if you followed our advice and painted the room white, choose a bright color such as yellow or red for the sofa. This will freshen up the room a bit and make it modern. This is just one of the laundry room ideas that’ll make doing laundry a joy.


Add a folding wall table

One thing you can do that will make doing your laundry easier is to add a folding wall table to your laundry room. Your laundry room should not only serve for washing and drying clothes. Because after that you still have to fold and iron your clothes. This table does not take up much space, so you do not need to have a huge laundry room. And after you finish folding and ironing, you can just put it back. This will make your laundry area much more functional, won’t take up a lot of space, and won’t cost much. And you don’t have to be worried about relocating this table to your new home if you decide to move one day. According to experts at, they regularly get requests to move these types of folding wall tables. Movers have all the knowledge and experience necessary to gently remove the table from the wall and relocate it to your new home.

Get your laundry space organized

If you live in a large household, you know how chaotic doing laundry can become. Washing a massive amount of laundry for different members of the family always leads to the fact that someone is missing a shirt, socks, or sweatshirt. To avoid this, it is necessary to introduce some order in the laundry room. Get laundry baskets for each member of your family. Then add name tags so you can separate clothes when you wash and fold them. Instruct your family to leave their dirty laundry in a basket with their name tag to avoid any mix-ups. Also, to make your laundry space even more organized, you can hang a table with your laundry schedule for each family member. Make laundry the responsibility of a different family member every week. This way, you will divide the housework fairly, and there will be no confusion about whose turn it is to do the laundry. An organized laundry room is a more efficient laundry room.

Hide your laundry machines

Unfortunately, not all homes have the luxury of having an entire room dedicated to laundry. Many homes, particularly condos, have laundry facilities in the hallway or in a bathroom. For these multi-functional spaces, you can make the room look more polished by tucking away your laundry machines. You can either do this by hiding your machines in a cupboard or behind shutters (ideal for a hallway) or underneath a countertop. Having your machines under a countertop not only tidies the space, but it’s also very practical as well. You can even add curtains to completely hide the machines while adding a touch of colour. There is no reason why your laundry area should clutter your house just because there is no separate space for it.

In conclusion

These were just some of the laundry room ideas that’ll make doing laundry a joy. As you can see, most of them are simple and affordable. The main thing is that your laundry room is functional and has enough space for everything. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t decorate it nicely. It is essential to create a pleasant and warm atmosphere there as well.
