If you’re like most of us, you probably spend more time in the laundry room than you actually want to but you never really think about how you have it decorated or styled. In fact, the laundry room is probably one of the most used but most ignored places in the entire house. It just doesn’t occur to us that it can be decorated well, and made much more pretty, inviting, and enjoyable to use.
If you take a weekend and simply concentrate on updating your laundry room design style, you may find you’re not nearly as bored when you’re in there doing the chores.
Most laundry rooms look way too utilitarian. They’re drab, dull, and just plain uninviting. This makes decorating easy though, because just adding a touch of color to the room will dramatically change the entire look and feel.
Now you don’t want to paint all the walls a dark color of course, because if your laundry room is like most it’s small. And painting small rooms in dark colors will make them feel even smaller and more claustrophobic than usual. Dark colors will actually make your clothes seem more dingy and drab too, and that’s likely to make us depressed or annoyed.
So one of the best things you can do to spruce up both the look and feel of your laundry room is to add touches of light and bright colors. Try painting the trim in a soft yellow or pastel tone for example, or experiment with bright primary colors such as green and blue.
