The primary functions -- sorting, washing, drying -- are grouped in one corner of the U for maximum efficiency, and with more wall space, you can expand on the drying options. Here one clothes pole above the folding counter holds items straight from the dryer so they don't wrinkle, and a second pole over the appliances allows for air-drying.
Eye-Catching Patterns Striking wallpaper instantly defines a space, while looking trendy and playful. Choose a pattern that matches your color scheme for an effortless way to accent your laundry room's decor. A cream and black floral design keeps with the dark hardware and appliances and pops against the green painted cabinetry.
Despite their heavy workload, laundry rooms are often squeezed into small spaces where clutter can make the space feel even more cramped. To give the room a more spacious feel, replace closet doors with simple canvas curtains that slide neatly out of the way when open. Above the washer and dryer, mount a storage shelf for laundry detergents, fabric softeners, and stain removers.
