Laundry Room Makeover

One of the things that sold me on the house was the laundry room. In Texas our laundry room was the size of a closet the width of a washer and dryer side-to-side. The spacious room and cabinets on both sides meant I would have plenty of room to wash and fold laundry.

Over time the space has also become a staging area for projects, gifts and crafts. The laminate counter tops have taken a beating as has the sink. So in January I decided to give the room a makeover. It was one of the last spaces we have not touched since moving into the home 6 years ago.

The paint and cabinets were the original color. I chose to make the room lighter and cheery. Somewhere I would want to spend time doing laundry. I hired a local painter to paint the cabinets light blue and the walls bright white. A second company replaced the counter tops with white and gray quartz.

It took just over a week, but the results were astounding. The space is completely different and inviting.
