Small Laundry Room Ideas

Laundry Room Makeover 

Finding laundry room ideas for our laundry room makeover was tough because our space is so small. It's actually not really a room at all, it's more of a hallway & the first thing you see when you walk into the house from the garage. Our laundry room has gotten more revamps than I think the rest of the house. Each time though I didn't really love, love it and its functions just didn't stick. I've been revamping all my organization "systems" in the entire house this past month. And since our laundry room is small, it was one of the first spaces I started on.

I went really out of my comfort zone with choosing this wallpaper in a bold, for me, print! I am so glad I did! It really livens up the space & makes such a statement for a small area. It is just peel & stick & was a sinch to get up by myself!

Laundry decor is kinda scarce & what you get you want to be practical. So it generally consists of some kind of sign that is themed. I wanted to do something a little different to decorate the space since it is a go-between space. This wreath was perfect & adding a rug to the laundry room made it cozy!

 Like I said, my Laundry room isn't a room at all. It's a hallway, you enter it from the kitchen, then the wall directly in front of the washer/dryer is the garage door. If you keep walking from the kitchen right through it leads to the powder room. It is a very "seen" part of the house, so keeping it neat & tidy is a must as guests can see it & have to walk through to get to the powder room.

The laundry room cabinets above the washer & dryer house the toilet paper & paper towels. I am toying with eventually making doors instead of having open shelving.

On the opposite wall from the washer & dryer that has the door to the garage, I hung this scroll to write notes to see as we are walking out the door!

Before I was trying to decorate and organize but concentrated on it being pretty! And while that still was a big factor. I had to get systems that work better for me. So much big hocking jars had to go. I replaced them with baskets. I reorganized the drawers underneath the washer and dryer and put my fundamentals on top in an easy to grab tray that keeps everything corraled! This tin totally pulls in my "farmhouse" vibe & is completely functional, I put all of my laundry pods in it! It also came with a scoop for those that use powder!

 Here was the closest thing I could find to a before picture from a few years ago with our last wash & dryer but you can see it's a huge difference even with the old ones, the wallpaper & decor change the space completely:

I say this all the time but I truly mean it. I really feel like even the most mundane spaces should be pretty in your home. Whatever "pretty" means to you! Since I spend so much time washing clothes, why not make this space, a happy place for me while I'm cursing the millions of loads?? It makes me want to keep it clean and organized more. I mean, I'm still not going to be thrilled with doing the laundry. But, you get what I mean ;)

I realize now I probably should have taken photos of the organization I did in the baskets & drawers, so if you would like to see that please let me know in the comments! Overall, I really am in love with this space. I think the wallpaper is a bold but neutral statement to make that hallway pleasing to the eye but neutral enough to be a hallway that gets a lot of traffic!
