Interior Ideas Room by Room
Livable Laundry Rooms
Consider treating your laundry space to a facelift! Decorative enhancements such as window treatments, wall coverings and decorative accessories do not require a large financial investment, but add a personalized touch to the laundry area.
Decorative Ideas: Explore the possibility of creating a theme for your laundry room space (see Decorative Techniques).
- Start by selecting a specific color scheme.
- Stencil or paint a freehand border around the windows that demonstrate the laundry room theme.
- Botanical and garden motifs are popular contemporary laundry room themes:
Create imaginative and inexpensive wall art by matting and framing various leaves (from your own backyard!) using inexpensive wooden picture frames.
Unify the framed grouping by painting frames using an existing hue from your chosen color scheme.
Using the existing color scheme, paint inexpensive containers in solids, floral and other patterns. Use containers to store cleaning supplies and other laundry necessities.
