The laundry room is often an overlooked and overworked room in the home. It needs to be functional of course, but what about beautiful? Whether you have a small laundry closet or tiny laundry room, your laundry area can be both functional and beautiful! Below are a collection of 25 Small Laundry Room Ideas by bloggers. Let’s face it, laundry is not a task that most of us look forward to but having a pretty space to work in certainly lightens the load! (See what I did there? Laundry..load?) 🙂 As I was browsing through the bloggers’ laundry rooms, I came up with the following six takeaway tips.
Tip 1: Hide your laundry machines.
If you don’t always want to look at your washer and dryer, consider hiding them behind a simple tension rod and curtain. This is also a great way of infusing a bit more texture, color, and personality into the space.

If your laundry machines are tucked away in a closet-sized space, the addition of a sliding door can hide your machines while providing character to the room.

Tip 2: Choose a neutral color palette for your laundry room.
You just cannot go wrong by choosing a black, white, and gray color palette for your laundry room! From classy and sophisticated to fun and bubbly, this palette is able to fit your style.

This next small space laundry room has several fun ideas to steal! Create instant storage using wooden craft crates spray painted to the color of your choice. Place pegboard on an empty wall to store small items. Use electrical tape to create an easy-to-remove design and pattern on your appliances.

Tip 3: Make your laundry room cheerful with pops of color.
The laundry room is a great place to experiment with design! Create an accent wall with a stencil, paint the laminate floors, and install a DIY light fixture. Small spaces are great spaces to flex your DIY muscle!
If you’re not ready to experiment with paint, don’t underestimate the power of a few well-placed accessories. A bright floral rug and some decorative baskets in coordinating colors might be all you need to spruce up your space.

If you have access to a vinyl cutting machine, cut some vinyl to dress up your machines in a way that makes you smile! You can also find some cute pre-made vinyl decals for laundry rooms online.

Tip 4: Utilize wasted space.
I love how this blogger created floating shelves between her cabinets to instantly boost her storage space and add warmth to her laundry room.

Stackable machines are a great way to take advantage of vertical space. Also notice her cute circle design on the wall? I believe that design was created using toilet paper rolls dipped in white paint.

If there is an awkward space above your cabinets, take advantage of it with decorative baskets. Besides providing additional storage, they add texture and warmth to an otherwise stark space.

Baskets hanging on the wall can provide excellent storage for loose socks, laundry supplies, or other necessities.

Tip 5: Get creative with your storage and folding areas.
Propping your machines up on a custom-built laundry pedestal is a great way to create basket storage.

If you don’t have a folding station in your laundry room, think outside the box! A thrift store table can be cut in half, painted, and attached to the wall to create a long work station.

For added storage, create a customized cubby above your laundry machines to store your necessary supplies or stash clothes.

Consider hanging an old ladder from the ceiling to create a drying rack, or to hang clothing once ironed.

If you have a large family, housing several clothing baskets on casters within the laundry room is a great way to keep laundered clothing organized.

Closets in laundry rooms can be converted into creative folding stations. Add a countertop and shelving to create your custom laundry room storage solution.

Tip 6: Paint your laundry room blue to feel more serene in your space.
There is scientific evidence to prove that the majority of people report feeling calm and serene when surrounded by the color blue. While laundry rooms are welcome to be any color of your choosing, a blue laundry room is most likely to leave you feeling at peace. Considering how stressful I find doing our family’s laundry, I think I can use all of the help I can get! Here are some beautiful blogger laundry rooms in various shades of blue.
