Finding those coins in the pockets of shorts and pants or even in the bottom of the washer or dryer will always happen, so why not create a laundry room decor sign to collect all that loose change? This is such a cute and easy idea that adds a fun ambiance to the room and it serves a purpose! Paint the mason jar in your favorite color, or even leave it clear and add it to your favorite color of wood for a cute laundry room decor sign that the whole family will want to check. You can even make a junk jar sign for all those other rand items you find like golf tees, toys, and other little bits that can be found while doing the wash.

9) Floating Shelf Laundry Room Decor

A simple shelf perfectly placed can make all the difference in the feel and style of your laundry room decor. It adds an extra shelf that looks amazing and also gives that extra bit of space that is needed in a small room. As a quick tip, this height of the shelf only works if you have side loading washer and dryer, but if you have a top loading system, just raise up the shelf! In this DIY they used pine wood and stained it with a dark walnut stain, but if that does not suit your style you can paint the wood color like blue or red. This would give a wonderful pop of color that brings in a modern decor style to your laundry room.

10) Painted Laundry Hamper Decor

Upgrading your laundry room decor can be as simple as a little bit of paint! Take our dull and dingy laundry hamper and give it a makeover that will make the entire space look like new! Since these hampers were a bit old and worn, the owners first reinforced the top with some wood to make them sturdier. Then all you need is some paint that works on fabric, give a couple of coats and let it dry. Add some new rope handles and labels to complete the look. Not only is this super thrifty, but it also makes your laundry room decor look amazing!

    What can I do to change wallpaper in laundry room?

      Hey Kenneth!


      You'll want to first remove the wallpaper that's there and only then put up new. (Otherwise you risk peeling.)


      You can read more about the process here.


      As for new wallpaper- if you are the kind of person who likes to change things up, we'd recommend removable wallpaper. It acts like a giant sheet of contact paper and is less messy than old school wallpaper, since the backing is already adhesive! You can find some great options online and at places like Lowe's and Home Depot.
