Are you tired of trying to do laundry in a cramped, disorganized room? If so, take heart. These 2021 laundry room style trends can transform your laundry/utility room, turning it into a functional, organized, aesthetic place to take care of your clothes, store household items, and more.
In times past, the laundry room was simply a place to wash, dry, and fold laundry. A storage shelf or two may have occupied a bit of extra space, providing a spot for storing laundry soap, stain remover, and other household supplies. However, trends are changing and homeowners need more from their laundry room than ever before. Custom storage cabinets such as the ones made by More Space Place offer ample storage space for clothes, shoes, household supplies, and accessories. Fold-out ironing board and pull-out shelves make it easy to create a spacious ambiance while making it easy to iron and fold clothes as needed.
Alternatively, homeowners who have the extra space are adding a touch of luxury to laundry areas with a wine rack. Wood racks, wrought iron racks, and racks made from a combination of these materials are trending this year. Popular styles include vintage, rustic, and modern.
Natural decor is trending this year. You simply can’t go wrong with floral patterns, earthen paint tones, and indoor plants. If you have space, consider bringing a plant or two into the laundry area to create a bright, cheery atmosphere. If you’re considering a new shade of paint for the area, trending paint colors include mint green, light gray-blue, and light mustard.
Wood (or imitation wood), bamboo, rattan, and natural stone are trending materials you may want to incorporate into your laundry room design. A natural stone floor paired with rustic wood shelves can be an ideal option; alternatively, you may opt for an imitation wood floor with bamboo shelving to give the room a rustic yet natural appeal. Nature offers plenty of materials and colors to pick from so consider your needs, tastes, and the overall style of your home decor to select a design that looks good and suits your needs.
Don’t settle for a laundry room that isn’t reaching its full potential. With a bit of time, effort, and some professional help, you can turn your laundry room into a masterpiece with ample storage space for needed items and a vibrant atmosphere that makes doing laundry a pleasure rather than a chore.
