How should I paint my laundry room?

+9
Answered
I want a unique laundry room that doesn't feel gross and funky. I plan to add mudroom style tall cubbies with hooks on the left side. I want to add two plant shelves in front of the windows above the washer and dryer. I will decopauge vintage advertisements onto the counter and seal with a resin glaze. I want to add a pet food storage area under the counter and a laundry basket sorting section next to the washer and dryer. All my cleaning supplies will be put in homemade bins.
But I don't know if I should paint a mural on the walls or paint the walls ombre with an olive or sage color. All the trim will be white.

    You already have so much going on in that little room and plans for more. Keep the paint as simple as you can.

      Yeah, it is really busy and messy. I have very big bright and bold murals in two rooms that are very close to my laundry room, which was why I thought just simple ombre shades would look good.

    You can always go with a very light blue like the sky. IF you have any wall space at all, you can add wooden or metal signs like FAMILY or LAUNDRY, or even funny sayings. OR IF you want to paint a design, then maybe paint a small clothes-line with a few items pinned to it. Once you streamline your laundry room, so that is doesn't look so busy, you can add touches of art and color!!!!!

      Light blue is pretty. I have used it a lot throughout my home (dining room, master bedroom, and a light greyish blue in my bedroom and kitchen). Great suggestion, I'm just getting bored with so much blue. lol. There is very limited wall space. I think I might create some kind of laundry themed art on my irrigation panel that's on the wall. There will also be a small strip of wall space to the left of the window at the back of the room. The bright colors and art is the fun part.

    Wow. I personally love your taste. I love how you incorporate a classic paint with simple modern flowers. As for your laundry room, I would keep it simple maybe do a light brown color and incorporate metallic flowers (same shade) that give your artistic view but is not to busy. Than again you can always go bold since is next to the bathroom.😁
    Have fun and share pictures when you are done!!!

    I love those big light giving windiws. One thing you can do with them that is cheap cheap is buy the roll up grass mats that you can find almost anywhere, that are for beach use etc. They can be left natural or painted, muralized, etc. Let your heart be the judge. You have two sides. So one side however you wasnt, the do the other side however. You can use a spring rod, and use velcro to make switching sides a breeze. If you do this please send me pictures. I did my guest suite like this at our lakehouse. Everbody loves it. They roll them up in the daytime to enjoy the view and down at night as desired for privacy.

    With those wonderful windows, I'd paint the walls a creamy yellow to bring in "sunshine". White trim is perfect. Pops of aqua decor would be a plus. Best of luck.

    Sounds like you have a good idea as to decorating your laundry room, so go with your ideas. When you get your items all organized and stored, step back and see what color appeals to you most , what is your favorite, what will make the room stand out, your choice. Love the windows, leave uncovered for your plants. Enjoy!
