Even though the laundry room is one of the most frequently used rooms in many homes, the styling and functionality of the room are often overlooked. Our real estate agents encourage homeowners to overhaul their laundry room so that it's a space that fits their aesthetic preferences and household needs. Here are a few ideas for your laundry room makeover.
- Repaint Your Laundry Room with a Light Color
If your laundry room feels small, closed-off, and dreary, painting it a light color is a simple, effective way to help the space feel larger and more inviting. White, beige, light gray, blues, and greens are all excellent options. Overhaul your laundry room's paint before adding your home to the inventory of Fort Worth homes for sale.
- Add Cabinets or Shelving to Your Laundry Room
One issue that most laundry rooms struggle with is a lack of storage; many times, the top of the dryer winds up as the only functional storage area in the room. Hang cabinets or install shelves to give the laundry room valuable space. Should you decide to install shelves, use canvas or wooden bins on the shelves to make sure that everything has a designated spot.
- Ditch Your Laundry Product's Containers
The containers that your laundry products come in are usually big, bulky, and unattractive. Instead of storing products in their containers, pick up a set of glass jars to house your laundry detergent, fabric softener, and stain removers. Glass jars compliment nearly every type of decor, and it's easier to see if you're about to run out of one of your laundry essentials.

- Install a Waterfall Counter
A waterfall counter that goes over your washer and dryer will add useful folding space to your laundry room without sacrificing any of your floor space. This addition will also prevent socks, towels, and other clothing items from getting lost in the space between your washer and dryer.
- Upgrade Your Lighting
Upgrading your laundry room's light fixture with a more stylish option will instantly make the room look more appealing and inviting. Consider investing in a light fixture that you love to add character to the room and ensure that you have lots of bright lighting when it's time to do a load of laundry.
- Hang a Utility Rod
Hang a utility rod above your washer or dryer in minutes using a tension rod. This provides a convenient spot to hang clothing items that need to air dry or promptly hang clothing that wrinkles easily.
- Incorporate a Few Decorative Elements
Utilizing decorative pieces that you love, like a wall print, wreath, curtains, or throw rug, is an easy way to make your laundry room a space that you look forward to using. Decor also keeps the room from looking drab and boring.
