I mean, it is probably the most important room in my house. I have a total of 4 males in my house that are not your average sized people.
So needless to say, I have to wash a lot of clothing. Which is all the more important for my laundry room to be laid out well, a functional space, and also some place I enjoy being (because I spend a lot of time there.)
Which is why I’m bringing you a bunch of different laundry ideas. Some are great examples of how you could lay out your laundry room. Others are a few organizational or design hacks to make your laundry room a functional and enjoyable space for you.
Laundry and Mudroom
Incorporating with the mudroom is one of the most popular small laundry room ideas and designs. It’s sensible and traffic smart especially if you need extra space to hang and dry clothes. This light green colour scheme is laundry room perfect – fresh, clean, airy.
Multi-Purpose Laundry Room Island
This multi-purpose laundry room island is a hard worker! It’s an ironing board, storage, and folding table in one. It is also wheeled for maximum room and space flexibility.
White and Organised
White expands the room and creates the illusion of space. This white and well-organised laundry is complete with a sink, folding station, ironing board, stacked washer and dryer, and lots of storage. And it only took half a wall of space.
You don’t need an entire room for your laundry. A closet is more than sufficient, accessible, and easy to hide. A well-sized closet anywhere in the house will do.
Laundry and Craft Room
Incorporating your laundry into the craft room is nothing short of ingenious! You will never be bored again waiting in-between loads. And your craft table can also double as the folding station.
Embrace the French Country Style Laundry Room
The designers of Arch Studio choose a French Country style for this classic U-shaped laundry room. The room features cabinets galore with easy to clean countertops at two levels. The room has plenty of light and a convenient hanging rod for clothes. The most unique feature is the rich blue paint is carried from the walls up onto the ceiling for a custom look.
Make the Most of a Galley Layout Laundry Room
All of the space in this narrow galley style laundry room is used perfectly by adding closed storage and wall-mounted drying racks. While most of the space is cream and white, the black countertops pick up the octagon black and white tile flooring and pops of color are added with graphic artwork.
Transform Traditional Black Cabinets With Decorator Touches
Just a few cosmetic changes transform standard black cabinets into an entirely different look in a laundry room. The addition of graphic wallpaper and harlequin black and white flooring by Abbott Moon make this tiny space a designer’s showplace.
Set the Laundry Room Style With Colorful Cabinets
The bright blue cabinets are the design star of this laundry room. Just a coat of paint can change the entire look of your space. Of course, the white farmhouse sink and contemporary stainless cabinet hardware don’t hurt.
Add Accessories to Suit Your Style in the Laundry Room
Traditional wood cabinets like these from Wellborn are the perfect backdrop for accessories to set the style in a laundry room. This room adds colorful artwork, greenery, extra task lighting and a stylish rug to set the mood.
Find a Spot for a Laundry Sink
A sink in the laundry room is nearly an essential for hand washing delicate items, presoaking really soiled clothes and treating stains. To prevent breaking up needed counter space, consider installing a corner sink.
The square stainless hardware adds a bit of punch to the simple Shaker cabinets.
Create an Industrial Look With Glass and Wire
The addition of glass front cabinets and wire storage bins gives this laundry area an industrial look. The added accessories like hanging hooks and storage baskets are both functional and attractive.
Create a Laundry Room With Retro Feel
No need to give up your modern washer and dryer to have a laundry room with a retro feel. The black and white checkerboard tile trim, bright yellow wall color and accessories give this room a 1950s style.
Laundry Room Storage Peg Wall
This peg wall is a great way to organize all of the things that often clutter a laundry room. For instance, you could hang your broom and mop on this well.
Plus, you can add a nice little basket to store your clothes pins and other odds and ends items that find their way to the laundry room.
The Hanging Dryer
This laundry room layout is so cool, in my opinion. You have your washer on the floor and counter space for folding your clothes.
Plus, you have a nice laundry sink as well. Then you have this awesome little dryer that hangs above the washer so it doesn’t take up any extra space.
The Hidden Drawers
If you’d like to have a hidden storage space in your laundry room, then why not match the drawers to your cabinets?
Then you can put your clothes baskets in these drawers, or any other item that you don’t want cluttering your laundry room.
The Hidden Ironing Board
My current laundry room is pretty small. When I was redesigning it I had to come up with lots of ways to maximize space.
But storing my ironing board was quite the hassle until I hung it on the wall. This idea of storing your ironing board on the wall will give you even more space.
The Compact Laundry Room
I really like this laundry room layout. My preference is to have a top loader washer, but you lose folding and hanging space in compact laundry rooms when you have a top loader.
But with this layout, you can have storage over your washer and dryer. As well as have a nice space to hang clothes as they come out of the dryer.
The Pull-Out Ironing Board
Finding a good place to store an ironing board where it won’t take up a ton of room can sometimes be a struggle.
Then someone created this ingenious idea where the ironing board pulls in and out like a drawer. How awesome is that?
The Super Organized Laundry Room
This laundry room looks pretty busy, yet organized simultaneously. It has just about everything you could possibly need.
So if you need a way to house a washer/dryer set, a drying rack, and other organizational supplies, then you might want to consider a few of these ideas.
Simple and Cozy Laundry Room
This laundry room looks like a well maintained and simplified laundry room. There isn’t a lot of flare to it. It just looks tidy.
So for those of you who prefer a more simple design for your laundry room, then you might want to consider a similar design as this one.
The Farmhouse Laundry Sink
This is a little more elegant looking laundry room. Truthfully, it is probably out of my budget.
But if it isn’t for you, then you might want to consider it. It has a great amount of storage and a beautiful farmhouse style sink.
The Laundry Room Door
For those of you that have a door to your laundry room, then you might like this as a nice addition to it.
Plus, as I mentioned earlier, no one in your family has any excuse to not help you with the laundry. You added a nice little sign to help them find their way to the laundry room.

The Sandwiched Shelf
This shelf is a really great way to utilize every ounce of space you have in your laundry room. It is a pull-out shelf that is sandwiched between the washer and dryer.
So as you can imagine this makes things much easier to access when washing clothes. It also doesn’t take up any extra space.
Retractable Clothes Line
Just because you have a smaller laundry area does not mean that you have to let go of certain things that you need to have a functional laundry room.
For instance, a space to dry your clothes. With this cool retractable clothes line, you just pull it out when needed, and put it up when you don’t need it.
