Just because doing laundry is a chore doesn’t mean it needs to look like one! I am so excited to share this laundry room makeover with you today. My friend Sabrin lives just down the road and asked me if I could help take their laundry room from drab to fab. I Immediately went into planning mood. Let’s take a look at the before, my design plan and how the final vision came to life.
Not everyone has a dedicated Laundry Room in their home but there is no reason why a closet can’t feel just as special! My main goal when going into this design project was making this closet evoke a mood when the door were open!
I started with the color blue when building this mood board because that is Sabrin’s favorite color! It is also very complimentary for her overall home color palette. Blues are a reoccurring theme. One of the main functions is that I want to provide her with some additional storage. They has one high shelf and it made it difficult to store all of the things they needed to do laundry.
Here is where we landed! I built the custom shelves and stained them in aged walnut to compliment their dark wood floors. We took the blue paint on all three walls and the ceiling! We also added a pop of tile in between both of the shelves. This was my first time tiling and I feel like I learned a ton. I used this product musselbound which essentially acts like a giant stick that you can just adhere the tile too and then grout. It worked great! Can’t wait to tackle it again now that I have done it once. I think the overall effect is super calming. Almost like you are opening the doors to a beach instead of a laundry closet to do a chore.
