Today I am excited to share a tour of my laundry room with you! This was by FAR the simplest and easiest room to renovate in our home, and we love the new space. It’s fresh, clean and does the job. It’s not the fanciest of laundry rooms, but it feels that way to me because I’ve never had such a spacious laundry room before.
But first, a walk down memory lane! You can see all the before photos here.
The before was not bad at all, so we didn’t change all that much. What we did was replace the linoleum floor with penny tile, replace the counters with marble (we got a discount because we did a couple bathrooms at the same time), and add peel and stick subway tile to two of the walls. We also replaced the hardware and the faucet and added a couple decor pieces, while keeping it mostly minimal… because who really needs an overly decorated laundry room anyway??
We painted the door a light seafoam to add just a little punch of color. The hanging plants are totally fake (here are some of my favorites), but they add some color to the space, and as an added bonus— they will never die… haha. (The rest of the plants are real. I am a big fan of only using fake plants in hard-to-reach places.)
I love penny round and this is the only space in our home where we used it. You can see here this is also the space where our dogs have food and water.
We kept the existing storage and just updated it with a fresh coat of white paint and some new gold hardware. I love having all those shelves because we keep all our power tools, extra lightbulbs and batteries… things like that in this area. Safe from future kiddos (we already did some kid-proofing before our Home Study for our adoption).
I added just a couple prints from Etsy artist Bree Madden. I had them bookmarked in my Etsy faves for years. Do you ever do that? The gold hooks are from CB2 and the faucet was a super inexpensive one from Amazon ($30 I believe) that I had metal plated in brushed brass.
Right around the time we moved, I transitioned so many things in our home to more natural options. Replacing dryer sheets with these wool balls (with essential oils) was one of the easiest things we did. I love them! I also make my own cleaning sprays and things like that. It’s somewhat of a hobby now and makes me happy to know I am taking little steps toward creating a greener household. Thanks so much for reading! If you are new to our blog, you can see all my home tours here. I am about halfway done sharing the room makeovers in our home. My goal is to complete them this year (or before our adoption, whichever…). This home is truly a dream home to us. We’re planning to stay for a long time (our timeline has expanded since I’ve gotten to know Nashville real estate more… I don’t really think I could do any better anywhere even close to the price of this house).

Looks so good! very inspiring.
Such a bright, simple refresh! Clean, organized, and a great space for laundry. I bet this room makes the terrible chore a little bit more bearable!
I’m in love with this! Thanks for posting! I am now inspired to do a make-over for our laundry room. You made it seem so simple and easy, yet still stylish! <3
I love this! Thanks for the inspiration. I need to get organised and sort out my laundry room – it has so much potential but it’s just a dumping ground for stuff at the moment. I need to create better storage and make homes for things. I love how light and bright yours looks.
Do you mind sharing where you got the white structured plant pot? I am totally in love with it!
This is beautiful and gives me so many ideas. Thank you for sharing. Longtime admirer of your style. I have a lot of clothes that I only hang dry. I am guessing you do, too. Where do you accomplish that task–wherever you might do that seems to be hidden 😉
I love this! Especially the light cool colors along with white marble. Definitely my favorite minimalist, simplistic decor right now! So pretty!
I love it! I’m obsessed with beautiful laundry rooms! Probably because we live in an apartment with a stackable unit in the hallway right now, and I do a lot of laundry! ? I especially love the white throughout with the mint on the door, so refreshing!
Such a beautiful laundry room!!
Do you mind sharing where the rug by the door is from?
Seriously, this laundry room is amazing! I suddenly would love doing the laundry haha 😀
This looks beautiful but with 2 and 6 year old and no cleaner in sight, I feel inspired but defeated. Maybe one day ??
What a great and easy make-over! I love everything about it! Quick question–where did you get the hanging pots? Or did you make them? I like how they’re reminiscent of 70’s macrame but with a more modern feel.
They’re so cute! I’m anxious to know too!
Love what you did to the laundry room! Loving the peel and stick subway tiles! I want to do our backsplash area and tile is so expensive! This may be the perfect option.
Quick question? Where did you get your laundry basket?? Love it!!!
Looks great ….. I love my laundry too.
It seems like you have a high ceiling … why not also add an Edwardian airer. I have 2 in my laundry …. I especially designed the raked ceiling to follow the roof line with extra space ( plus a vent ) so I could pull the airers up ….. inexpensive, save the planet … all that hot air rises to dry the washing overnight.
This is so clean and pretty!
This is the most stylish laundry room I have ever seen! So cool!
So cute. If you haven’t already, check in to NorWex Products. Love them. 🙂
I will look into that!!!
Was having a cheaper faucet metal plated a more cost efficient option than finding a brass faucet – o r was it just to get an exact match to the hardware? Just got some beautiful new brushed brass kitchen hardware and am having a hard time coordinating with a sink.
In this case it was much less expensive (probably saved $100ish) because the faucet I got was only, like, $30 on Amazon. It was really random though- it went out of stock right after I ordered it.
I love all our brass plated stuff, but where we went it took FOREVER (like 2 months haha) so that was a little annoying.
I would love a few DIY posts about cleaning products! I need the MOTIVATION. 🙂
I need to do some soon.
