Decorating Country Chic – Laundry Room Decor Ideas
If you are like me, you probably spend as much time washing clothes as you do dishes. It seems like a never-ending battle.
But the difference between the laundry room and kitchen can be like night and day, especially if you consider that you might have put more time and energy into the overall design of your kitchen versus your utility-laundry room.

1. Bold Entrance
Most homes have a way of shutting out the nasties–and in this case, the laundry room. But why? How about giving it a distinction that is one-of-a-kind, like this store-front design.

6. Pretty in Blue
I love this color not only for its vibrancy but also it’s cheerfulness, despite the loads of wash that has to be done on a daily basis.
Check out the great text behind the washer and dryer. Between this and the well-placed cabinets (both above and between the appliances), you’ll find that your laundry supplies are out of sight and safely stored from little ones.

7. Surface Space
We all need a space to fold our clothes. But most often it’s a trick to balance clothes piles on the washer or dryer. The answer? Add a counter over the washer and dryer.
Not only does it give you ample space to fold and stack your clean clothes but you also have room to add a few utilitarian items like a couple of storage baskets and even a potted plant.
Decor Tip: Check out the large tile print on the floor with the amazing graphic design. It adds a bold beauty to a hard-working room.
