HGTV Dream Home 2013: Laundry Room Pictures

A bright and cheery wall color and state-of-the-art appliances shine in an otherwise quiet HGTV Dream Home space.

  • The laundry room takes advantage of natural sunlight streaming through a tilt-and-turn window, which offers serene side yard views. A vibrant shade of coastal blue on walls is a fun way to jazz up an otherwise utilitarian space.

  • A high-arc faucet lends a sculptural quality to the countertop. The spout swivels 360 degrees for complete sink access and offers both spray and stream functions.

  • The high-efficiency front-loading washer and dryer provide a work surface to fold laundry. Five upper cabinets offer space to store cleaning supplies and linens.

  • \"The pantry is so visible – it has to be sophisticated, in keeping with the kitchen and living room, which it does,\" says interior designer Linda Woodrum. \"And the laundry room is not so visible. It's nice to turn the corner and have the hot, intense wall color.\"

  • A stainless steel single-basin undermount sink accommodates both washday chores and crafting tasks that may prove too messy for kitchen sink and countertop surfaces.

  • A natural seagrass basket totes laundry to and from the workroom while a wicker basket keeps beach towels at the ready.

  • The front-loading washing machine is designed to use less detergent and tumble-dry small loads of laundry for up to 12 hours when the built-in fan option is selected.

  • Using vibrant color — counter to the home's overall color palette — proves a win in this circumstance, says interior designer Linda Woodrum. \"It doesn't really impact the large living space, so I'm fine with it.\"
