Earlier than and After – Laundry Room Makeover


I consider that tedious duties might be made extra pleasing in the event that they happen in an attractive atmosphere, and I tackled the design of our new laundry room with this in thoughts.  The laundry space at #JungalowByTheMountain was comparatively spacious and completely useful however totally missing in persona and vibes — making the chore of doing laundry really feel like simply that — a chore. I wished to inject a heavy dose of shade and sample into the area in order that the laundry room would possibly really feel like a spot I’d acutally wish to be in, like, say, a like a boutique resort for soiled garments. Hehe.

A laundry room is a good place to go daring and have enjoyable with shade and sample. Like a powder room, it’s a contained space that doesn’t really want to “go together with” surrounding areas, so there’s a good opportuntiy to have enjoyable and get just a little wild. I selected to put in this peel and stick wallpaper  as a result of I wished one thing patternful and with a darkish floor to match again to the washer and dryer. (To assist us calculate the quantity of wallpaper we would have liked we used the very useful Wallpaper Calculator from The Residence Depot app). The general vibe I wished to to lend to the area was one in all magic and thriller.
On the ground, we then put in a cement hex tile in Sage from Zia Tile. We used a really slim grout line and “River Rock” grout shade as a result of I wished the grout strains to be much less distinguished. We styled it with a Gemology rug from my assortment with Loloi Rugs.

I selected Cajun Purple and Terracotta Clay by Behr for the paint colours, as a result of I wished to deliver heat to the area. We used two colours to provide the area a bit extra dynamism. As a of completion, we swapped out the outdated cupboard {hardware} for one thing extra fashionable in black and gold to match again to the wallpaper.

For the reason that wallpaper we used was peel and stick, I made a decision to additionally cowl the hideous handrail (that we stored for security causes) and it now type of disappears into the wallpaper sample. Yay.
Now I can get misplaced within the wallpaper sample and the nice and cozy tones of the wall and ceiling and dream of doing laundry in Florence, Istanbul or Antigua (simply I few locations I wouldn’t thoughts doing laundry in!)
