Laundry rooms are often overlooked and considered mundane spaces. However, with the right intention, a laundry room can be both functional and stylish, adding character to your home. A well-designed laundry room can make doing laundry less of a chore and even a little more enjoyable. Let’s explore how to create a laundry room that balances function and personality, so you can have a space that’s both practical and inviting.
Choosing a unique backsplash adds personality and style to an otherwise overlooked space. A backsplash is a practical and functional element that protects your walls from water, detergent, and other cleaning agents, but it also offers an opportunity to showcase your personal taste and design aesthetic. With so many options available, from tiles to wallpaper to natural stone, a backsplash can be a statement piece in your laundry room. A unique backsplash can also help tie together the design of the space and make it feel more cohesive. By selecting a distinctive and eye-catching backsplash, you can turn your laundry room into a functional and stylish room that you’ll enjoy spending time in.

This might be an unpopular opinion, but our preferred laundering situation is a side-by-side front-loading machine with a countertop installed over the top. Building a countertop over side-by-side laundry machines is an excellent way to make the most of your laundry room. The extra counter space provides a convenient surface location for sorting, folding, and organizing laundry right at the source.
Let’s face it, doing the laundry is a chore that we prolong doing until we’re down to our last set of underwear. This grueling task can only be made the slightest bit lighter by making our surroundings our own, which is why we highly suggest taking this little space and cranking up the personality volume. We worked with some pretty fun clients on this particular laundry room, which lacks in size but not character. The whole home is filled with ties to nature and animals, so we knew that this aquatic-themed ceramic hardware set would be the perfect way to bring a very cool focal point to the space.
A steam closet is like the cherry on top of the perfect laundry room. By using the power of steam, you can extend the life of your clothes and reduce the need for frequent washing or dry cleaning, saving you time and money.

With a steam closet in your laundry room, you can have a versatile and efficient tool that can help keep your clothes clean, fresh, and in good condition, all while maximizing your laundry room’s potential.
