Make your Atlantic Builders laundry room a room to love!

Posted: June, 8, 2017 | Categories: Atlantic Builders | Home Organization Ideas | New Home Values

The laundry room isn’t usually a major selling point in a home. But for an active family, it may actually be one of the busiest rooms in your Atlantic Builders home. While most laundry rooms are rather utilitarian, a little imagination can help them be both more attractive and more functional. Accessories like baskets and glass jars keep things stylishly organized, while a little whimsy adds interest. Check out some of the current design trends that can make your laundry room a space you’ll love!

  1. Classic country. Simple reclaimed wood shelving with black iron brackets really pops against white walls while adding storage space. Combine with a farm sink and a willow laundry basket, and you’re transported to a farmhouse of yore.
  2. That Zen feeling. Make doing the laundry more relaxing with some serene spa touches, like warm wood cabinets, soothing pale greens or lavenders, scented candles, and even a few live plants.  
  3. Go retro. Who says the laundry room has to be boring? Add some funkiness with colors and patterns that evoke the 70’s. With some groovy paint on the walls and a far-out throw rug on the floor, you’ll have instant cool.
  4. Small room. Big style. Even if your laundry room is on the small side, you can add serious style with pretty patterned wallpaper, a chandelier, painted cabinetry, plentiful wall hooks, a fold-out ironing board, or a wall-mounted drying rack.
  5. Neutral with a splash of history. Add a little warmth to your utilitarian space with classic white cabinetry, and some historical laundry artifacts like old wash baskets, washboards, mangles and clotheslines.
  6. Multi-purpose room. You spend a lot of time in the laundry room, so make it more useful. Add a built-in table or desk to create an office or craft room. Add comfy chairs to create a reading nook. Add floor-to-ceiling cabinets to create a pantry.
