anyone else dreads laundry day? it’s the one chore many of us put off until we have ‘nothing to wear’ sound familiar? that’s why i love to create a cheerful laundry room. space where it’s fun to hang out. oscar and ollie love spending time in our laundry room. after all, this is where their food and gear are stored. let’s not forget their treat jar. today, i thought i’d share a few laundry room ideas that help take the drudge out of laundry.
laundry baskets and hampers are a must to store and schlep loads of laundry back and forth. and i love a bold wall. in previous laundry rooms, i’ve slapped up dramatic wallpaper or added a bright color. this time i went with Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black. don’t the walls look fabulous against fire engine red washer and dryer?
laundry rooms are hard-working spaces, so i try to have a place for everything and everything in its place. this cute console table adds extra storage space. wire baskets (similar here) store cleaning supplies. laundry detergent is housed in a glass canister. the farmhouse pig lamp is no longer available from Pier One. Hayneedle has a similar lamp. the laundry letters are from Ballards. they add a little whimsy to the room.
this comfort mat reduces stress from standing. aren’t the laundry symbols a cute addition?
the light fixture was exchanged for an aged bronze flush mount.
we removed the cabinet doors above the washer and dryer. i still haven’t decided what paint color to choose.
here’s a YouTube video where i share a few laundry hacks.
are we ready to get the weekend started? hopefully, you have something more interesting than laundry on your to-do list. mr. style and i saw Ocean’s 8 last night and thoroughly enjoyed it! great cast and a whole lot of fun. on that happy note, oscar, ollie and i wish each of you a lovely weekend. xo
