Laundry Room Makeover

Last year, we gave our laundry room a quick refresh with new paint, wallpaper, hardware and lighting.  Prior to that, we had new tile installed to replace the outdated linoleum floors. Plus, a bench and shelves built in for extra storage and seating.  Here is what we used for an affordable laundry room makeover.

 

Wallpaper –

  • Peel and stick wallpaper is an easy and affordable way to transform a room. I applied the wallpaper on the back wall and underneath the cabinets, behind the washer and dryer. This is my new favorite thing because it is easy to apply and remove without damaging the walls.
  • With the spray paint and left over wallpaper, I easily updated our dog food container.
  • D Marie Interiors has a great selection and wallpaper calculator on their website, too. That’s where I found the Florentine blue medallion tile wallpaper.

 

Paint  –

  • The blue green wall color is Sherwin Williams ‘rain washed’ in semi-gloss latex. I have this color in my dining and living room, too.
  • Trim, bench built-in and cabinets are painted with Behr ‘ultra pure white’ in a semi-gloss enamel which is used throughout my home.  It has great coverage, but keep some paint thinner on hand to clean up.

Hardware –

  • I love the champagne bronze hardware from D. Lawless Hardware, here. They have a great selection of hooks, pulls, and knobs that all matches. Eventually, I want to transition all the hardware in my home to the champagne bronze. Adding it in a small space gave me a chance to ensure that I love it. I do!

 

Lighting –

  • We picked this pendant from Home Depot for under $100 and installed it ourselves.
  • In addition, we do have recessed lighting in the room to provide extra light on the other side of the room.

 

Flooring –

  • I loved this look of Chicago open faced brick when I saw it on an episode of Fixer Upper years ago.  Initially, I thought the texture would be rough on bare feet. However, after sealing it, it works great in the mudroom.
  • The herringbone pattern is unique option for tile in small spaces.  In a large space, the pattern could become busy, but works here.
  • This is from our local store in Waco called Design Superstore.

 

 

 

Decor –

  • The vintage inspired seltzer bottles and terra cotta pot are from the Magnolia Home line. However, I actually found them, laundry sign and the potted plant at Homegoods.
  • Baskets are great for extra storage and hiding dog accessories.  These are from Michaels.
  • The church painting is from Hobby Lobby.

 

Thanks for checking out my laundry room makeover.  Even if you have to do room updates in multiple phases, like we did, it will be worth it in the end.  Your house will feel like a home and laundry will be a little less tedious… at least until the newness of the room wears off!  Then, teach your kids to do their own laundry!
