Upgrade Your Laundry Room with Some Quick Fixes

Upgrade Your Laundry Room with Some Quick Fixes

The laundry room has always been the afterthought in most homes. The hidden room or closet-like space where hopes are dashed and dreams of a Jetson-like dryer that folds and puts away laundry are contemplated. Laundry rooms are usually relatively small, but while little they have a ton of potential.

We’ve broken down some key elements to take your space up a notch, so let’s capitalize on it and turn drab into fab!




Make a bold statement or stick with neutrals, but paint is a simple choice to take the room up a notch.  It’s inexpensive and can instantly transform a room. Below is a great choice of grey, a fun lime and a bold red that can set the back drop for added elements to the room.  Word of caution on deep and dark colors, your cleaning in the laundry room will increase due to the lent and dust being more noticeable on dark walls.

Above the washer and dryer, if room, is a great place to put a shelf or shelves for useful décor options and storage.  And for a more polished look choose a floating shelf over the standard wire racking you see in closets and laundry rooms.  They come in a variety of colors to suit all styles.

Glass Containers & Baskets

Ditch the detergent boxes and opt for glass containers and baskets for storage.  Pour your dry detergents, scent beads and Pods in the glass containers and use the baskets to hide the boxes or liquids. Place the containers on your shelf for easy access during laundry.

Wall Decor

Just for a bit of fun a canvas, wall decal or chalkboard are relatively inexpensive options that add a bit of flare.  Position it over your washer and dryer, an open wall or shelf.

I hope these quick suggestions give you inspiration for your laundry room and don’t forget in the upgrade of your space to check out our huge selection of Whirlpool washer and dryers.
