13 beautiful and organised laundry room ideas

Gone are the days of bland laundry rooms that serve their purpose without showcasing even a hint of style. The hardworking space should be approached with the same enthusiasm as any other room in the house, with decorative elements and practical touches that tick the form and function boxes. To get you started, we’ve rounded up 13 easy ideas that are guaranteed to transform your laundry room into a beautiful oasis where everything has its place.

1. Choose a bold and beautiful colour scheme

Bold colours work well in smaller spaces, so don't be afraid to lean into an adventurous shade that you can splash across your laundry room for maximum impact. To maintain flow, choose a colour you’ve used as an accent in other parts of the house.

2. Create small flourishes with on-trend cabinet hardware

The finishing touches in your laundry room are just as important as the main features. Not only does chic cabinet hardware finish surfaces with a flourish, but it can also emphasise an on-trend colour or texture such as matte black or satin brass.

3. Go for a deep sink and practical tapware 

A deep laundry sink is a must-have; practical for hand washing delicates to trimming freshly picked flowers. When it comes to laundry tapware, a sink mixer makes it much easier to control temperature, while a tap with a pull-out spray lets you position your tap with plenty of space between it and the sink and the option to manoeuvre it closer when needed.

4. Use wallpaper to inject decorative flair

Ever wanted to give wallpaper a go? Your laundry room is the perfect place to start as there are fewer competing decorative elements. Instead, striking patterned wallpaper will bring energy to the utilitarian space.

5. Add a floating island for extra bench space

If you have the space for one, consider adding a small kitchen island to your laundry room. It will create an extra workspace, including a smart spot for folding bath towels, bed linen and clothes.

6. Build on your decor with blinds 

Blinds can block out harsh rays and tie a laundry room together—especially if the colour, pattern, or texture complements the other accents in the room.

7. Light up your laundry with a decorative pendant

You wouldn’t think twice about installing decorative lighting in your dining room or kitchen, so why not your laundry? The addition of a striking pendant light will transform your space in a snap.

8. Lay down a rug for instant warmth

Laying down a soft rug can drastically warm up your laundry room, which likely features a cold tiled floor. If your space is long and skinny, simply look for a stylish floor runner.

9. Make the most of your space with shelves and wall hooks

Overdoing it on the cabinetry can make a small space feel boxed in, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add storage in the form of wall-mounted shelves and wall hooks that make it easy to grab your most-used laundry essentials.

10. Organise essentials in canisters and on trays

Transferring the likes of laundry powder into chic canisters and hiding chunky items in boxes and baskets will instantly elevate the look of your laundry room. Grouping hand soap and liquids onto decorative trays is another easy way to curate practical pieces.

11. Incorporate a vase of fresh flowers

A vase of flowers makes an easy addition to any space, so treat your laundry room to a fresh bouquet. If you’d rather not rotate blooms, use faux flowers or stems for longevity that still looks great.

13. Fill your space with plants 

Pops of greenery are guaranteed to brighten up your space, whether you line your window sills with plant pots, string hanging pots from your ceiling, or place a couple of small succulents by your sink.
