It’s all too easy for a laundry room to turn into a dark closet full of dirty clothes. Make household chores more appealing by making over the room in which you do them. A welcoming laundry room will encourage everyone in the house to participate in chores. Our list of 28 small laundry room design ideas will help you to enjoy the area around your washer and dryer (probably for the first time). You’re proud of the rest of your home, why not love your laundry room too?

You don’t need a finished basement or servants’ quarters to have a welcoming laundry room. This list includes design ideas for even the smallest of spaces and budgets. All you need is a little paint, some organisational tools and this gallery of laundry rooms.

With the right design, you can even use your laundry room for other tasks like at-home office work or crafts. Add a rustic wooden countertop that doubles as a folding and ironing station, or get some much-needed extra storage space with a wall of shelves. After the makeover, you’re sure to find yourself enjoying your laundry room a lot more often.
