Add Functionality With a Sink

Laundry rooms may be hardworking, but that doesn't mean they have to be void of style.

Doing loads of laundry feels less like a chore when the laundry room looks like this. The white farmhouse sink offers a convenient place for hand washing clothes, treating stains or cleaning up after craft projects.

Add Storage With Baskets

This cheerful laundry room also functions as a mud room with a tile floor and walls that are easy to clean. Storage is a mix of closed cabinets, open shelving and pretty baskets.

A Convenient Clothes Rack

Crisp white cabinets and blue tiles combine with a quartz countertop for a clean looking workspace that includes a clothes rack for air drying delicates.

Laundry Room With Island

An island adds to the countertop space in this laundry room made lively with mustard yellow cabinetry and a plaid floor. And there's even a dog wash.

Add Color and Fun

So, you think all laundry rooms are dreary? Banish the thought! This one has lots of light, storage and plenty of fun style and color.

Serenity in a Workspace

This laundry room embraces a soft color palette, creating an environment of tranquility that makes doing laundry feel less like a chore. The cabinets were designed to not only maximize storage and create a functional room, but also create a layer of interest with the finishes, hardware, and complementary backsplash and countertops.

Organized Storage Systems

Laundry rooms can be as tiny as a closet or as large as a garage. But no matter if they are L-shaped, U-shaped or galleys, efficiency and organization are key. This mudroom/laundry room uses bright blue to wake up the space that includes plenty of storage right where it's needed.

Laundry Room With Space for Everything

This laundry room space meets nearly every need with rods for hanging bulky items and pull-out drying racks.

Organize With Rolling Baskets

Rolling laundry baskets provide perfect storage in this bright bathroom with large corner windows. A framed piece of art hangs over the sink, bringing color to the all-white room.

Functional and Stylish

Just because it's a laundry room doesn't mean it has to be boring! Black and white tiles and soft gray cabinets style up this functional space.

Bright Transformation

To transform their dingy and outdated laundry room into a bright and modern-day utility space, design blogger Erin Loechner and her husband, Ken, renovated this entire room from top to bottom sans contractor. They added wood-paneled walls, enclosed shelves above the washer and dryer, tiled flooring, a concrete vanity countertop, custom pendants and handcrafted details, like leather cabinet pulls. Now, the space appears stylish and homespun but 100 percent functional.

Double the Function

With not just one washer and dryer but two, designer Shane Inman ensures a low turnover rate for laundry in this household. By encasing the units below a stone countertop and adding storage cabinets above, the room instantly expands its functionality and efficiency.

Closet Laundry Station

A closet was transformed into this laundry room. To make up for the loss of storage space, the laundry room was designed with contemporary cabinetry to conceal essentials. Designer Brian Patrick Flynn even manages to fit an 8-foot folding station into the space.

Pet-Friendly Space

A laundry room is the perfect place to set up a cozy corner for the family pet and all of his toys and supplies. In this room, the laundry station is confined to one side, while the rest of the space serves as an informal mudroom with a spot for leashes, toys, hats and shoes. The vinyl flooring makes pet messes, shoe prints and other accidents a cinch to clean up. Photo courtesy of Armstrong.

Clean and Pristine

The designers at Fiorella Design used a sleek color palette and a striking minimalist approach to bring a contemporary look to this laundry room.

Homespun Laundry Look

This charming reach-in laundry station boasts simple farmhouse appeal through its collected accessories and homespun look. Laundry necessities are kept within reach in stylish decanters, baskets and vintage buckets above the washer and dryer.

Ample Space

This space proves to be far more than just a laundry room; it also serves as a multifunctional home office and hobby area, too. The large L-shaped countertop remains clear for folding laundry and taking on other housekeeping tasks. Plus, storage cabinets above and below the countertop provide the perfect place to store cleaning supplies, extra linens and children's messy arts and crafts supplies.

Tucked Away

Homeowners often find they don't need a room devoted to just doing the laundry. This spacious bathroom dedicates a small nook to the washer and dryer, a folding station and some overhead storage cabinetry.

Make Organizing a Snap

Wire baskets in this laundry room make organizing linens easier while interesting pulls and playful tiles turn the look into something fun. A rug on the floor adds another cozy texture.

Moving Upstairs

Traditionally, laundry rooms are located adjacent to the kitchen on the main level. But recently, larger second-story laundry rooms are becoming more popular. This sizeable utility room features all the desired amenities with a crisp, clean color palette.

Shared Spaces

A surprisingly common companion to the laundry room is the home office. Designer Amy Bubier creates a built-in desk nook on the opposite side of the concealed washer/dryer unit to take advantage of all the space offered.

Ultimate "Do" Room

Featuring a laundry area, workspace and wash station, this super utility space is truly the ultimate "do" room. It offers plenty of countertop space to complete laundry-related tasks, plus a quiet place for both kids and adults to work.

Contemporary Laundry Room in Hiding

Retro Hues
