    Try a curtain rod & whatever curtain matches your decor, this idea also works well on closet doors

    If you have the wall space... a sliding barn door could work... and it can double as a message center if painted with dry erase or chalkboard paint... Do you really need to have a door to the laundry room?

    we have a teeny laundry room... we put in stack-able washer and dryer (most of the front loaders will stack, with the right hardware) and some have an optional removable panel so the exhaust vent will come out of the side instead of the back... allowing the units to be pushed closer to the wall. We put a wine fridge under the folding table (removable to access the water heater) and built a shallow cabinet to fit between the W/D stack and the freezer.

    I have just this problem. After a lot of ideas ;- Curtain, Blind, Concertina door, String hanging , Bamboo stringed curtain. At the moment my thinking for my situation is a Metal Silver coloured Sting Curtain ( sometimes used in shop doorways). They do come in colours too........Best of luck in choice.

    A curtain placed on one of those tension rods might work well for you.
