When decorating your beautiful southern home, the last room you think needs to bright and beautiful is the laundry room. But why not? If you’re anything like me, you spend a lot of time in your laundry room. Take the time to (re)decorate your laundry area and create your own personal and peaceful space. Feel comfortable the next time you’re up late folding a load of clothes, why not love the room you’re in?
There are lots of creative elements that can be added to your laundry area. Black Southern Belle has come up withA�3 Creative Ideas to Makeover your Laundry RoomA�that will add a great new room to your southern home.
1. Use Vintage Fixtures and Features
This mix and match letters “Laundry” sign and the corrugated metal wall gives the perfect vintage feel.
Gather some old time antiques from your local shop or junkyard. This reclaimed pipe and farmhouse wooden boxes are definitely saying antique.
Sometimes the smallest things can make the biggest impact in a room. A great example: these clothespin cupboard hardware.
Don’t you just love this clothespin clock? It gives me a vintage farmhouse vibe that goes perfectly with our theme.
Adding an antique light fixture can truly brighten your laundry room. Paired with the laundry room and mute colors is a gorgeous dated look.
2. Incorporate decor that doubles in function
A sink is not the typical decor piece, but this sink sure is. The white sink perfectly compliments the room and doubles as another wash area.
Don’t these drying racks look amazing in this space? Not only does it add a pop of color to a gray room but it can almost be called “Murphy drying racks”, because they can be put away.
I know you would think that the door is the star of the show in this picture but look again… That chalkboard in your laundry area is brilliant. It gives the room a nice look and a nice place to write reminders.
These design elements are both trendy and clever. Glass jars are elegant and keep your laundry detergent and softener in them. Keep your laundry area organized and pretty.
These creative signs double beauty and functionality. “Keep the change.” “Lost socks seeking sole mates.” …. these are genius!
3. Add a pop of color
Add a pop of color by painting the walls a bright tangerine orange. Matched with a hint of its complementary, blue, this room is simply and gorgeously decorated.
This design adds a pop of color with a bright yellow door and the matching light fixture. It’s the perfect example of a minimalist design that works great.
Yes, this room has pale yellow walls! But the pop of color clearly comes from the turquoise cabinets that pull the design together.
What’s better than a pink door in an all white room? Nothing of course. This laundry room is clean and elegant while adding the perfect feel to a working room.
Instead of bringing out the paint to transform your laundry area, buy some new appliances! This red washer and dryer really recreates this space into an energetic and gorgeous space.
