Earlier than and After – Laundry Room Makeover


I consider that tedious duties could be made extra pleasing in the event that they happen in a stupendous setting, and I tackled the design of our new laundry room with this in thoughts.  The laundry space at #JungalowByTheMountain was comparatively spacious and completely practical however fully missing in character and vibes — making the chore of doing laundry really feel like simply that — a chore. I needed to inject a heavy dose of coloration 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 lodge for soiled garments. Hehe.

A laundry room is a superb place to go daring and have enjoyable with coloration and sample. Like a powder room, it’s a contained space that doesn’t actually need to “go along 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 needed 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 wanted we used the very helpful Wallpaper Calculator from The House Depot app). The general vibe I needed to to lend to the area was certainly one of 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 coloration as a result of I needed the grout strains to be much less outstanding. 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 needed to deliver heat to the area. We used two colours to present the area a bit extra dynamism. As a completion, we swapped out the outdated cupboard {hardware} for one thing extra trendy in black and gold to match again to the wallpaper.

Because the wallpaper we used was peel and stick, I made a decision to additionally cowl the hideous handrail (that we saved for security causes) and it now form 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!)
