This beautifully designed small laundry room features cabinets in a eucalyptus green color, contrasted with a light wood countertop creating a serene look. The white front loading washer complements the color combination in this laundry room matching the wall color and the contrasting black faucet and window.

We love the sneaky floors creeping attention from the calming green paint color, and the vertical shiplap creating height in this space.

If you have a closet laundry the best space-saving option for you is to have a front loading washer and dryer. Choosing this option allows for a countertop installation as well as a shelving system that will hold decorative baskets and jars filled with laundry and cleaning supplies.

The reclaimed wood barn door is perfect for hiding the area but also for giving a rustic look to this cute laundry room.

If you want to maximize your space in your laundry room opting for a stackable washer and dryer is the right choice. On top of that if you want a clean and tidy look get as many cabinets as you can in your laundry room to tuck away all the cleaning supplies and laundry.

Mark and Torrey did a great job in this laundry room with the color combination as well. Choosing a bold green color instead of white to complement the black washer and dryer, elevates the look of their small laundry room.

This small laundry room features a custom herringbone accent wall that totally transformed the look of this laundry room. It is made of underlayment plywood sheets 6″ by 24″ long creating a statement look for this space. We love all about this laundry room especially utilizing the space between the washer and dryer.

The shelves above the countertop are a perfect storing space as well as a place to put in some decor. Ashley used wicker and wire baskets that are used both as a storing space and as decor.

The laundry room is a relatively discrete space in the home, so you can use it to compliment your current interior or to experiment with color, wallpaper, or design you might not consider in other areas.

The unexpected mustard olive hue is working wonders in this laundry room. Choosing the same color for the cabinets as well as the surrounding shiplap walls creates a sense of harmony. Yet, the captivating wallpaper draws the eye up for a dramatic moment, giving this small laundry room a vivid character.

The lit-up shelf above the pedestal washer and dryer provides plenty of storage and display space for seasonal decor. Add a pot of live plants to soothe the overall look and add a natural touch.
