Laundry Room Door Ideas You’ll Love

When company drops by, laundry room doors let you conceal your in-progress washing, drying and folding. They also dampen the sound from noisy appliances, a handy feature to have any time. While a standard door will get the job done, why not choose something that complements your home’s overall style? These designer laundry rooms will inspire you to upgrade your basic laundry doors.

In this space, sliding barn doors in a distressed finish delineate the laundry room from the mudroom and add charming, rustic appeal. Plus, sliding doors are a great space-saving solution when there’s not enough room to open a traditional door.

Ventilation is an important consideration when choosing doors for a laundry room. If you don’t select a style that allows air to circulate (such as a louvered door), be sure your space has another form of ventilation so the heat and humidity created by the washer and dryer can escape.

Dutch Door

When you think of a laundry room door or laundry closet door, you probably think of the same plain, white, slatted door that’s always in new construction or rentals. It gets the job done and it is well-vented, but it’s also devoid of any style or personality. We’ve rounded up our favorite laundry room doors for some design inspiration and we’re starting with this antique Dutch door. It’s perfect for a little ventilation, or a lot of ventilation, when you need it.

Well-Vented Doors

Can you spot the appliances? If your laundry hook-up is in your kitchen, you might not have a door at all. A cabinet is a great way to conceal laundry appliances that share space with another room. These cabinet doors are made from a metal mesh, which allows hot air to circulate, while also blending in with the kitchen's existing style.
