How to style your laundry

How to style your laundry

The laundry is often overlooked as a place to showcase design. But, as one of the busiest rooms in the house, you may as well make it look nice and have a layout that works well for what you need. Today's images show that you can achieve a beautiful, yet highly organised and functional space to do one of the most boring jobs in life.

I would almost want to do the washing if I was lucky enough to have one of these laundry rooms! Here are some great ideas for how to style a laundry. 

All images for this post have been taken from my Pinterest Laundry Board, where you can find source information and more laundry inspiration. 

These first spaces make great use of over bench hanging racks, which are great for wet days or for delicate items you might not want hanging out on the line. You can also use this to store things that need ironing. 

Another must have is plenty of bench space to do the sorting and folding of the washing. And, if possible, a side door leading directly to the garden or washing line. 

Don't have much room for your laundry? How about putting it in a cupboard or hiding it away at the end of your bathroom? These next images show that just because you only have a very small space, you can still make it functional, organised and great to look at. 

And just because it is the laundry doesn't mean you shouldn't style it in the same way you might the rest of your house. There are so many beautiful soap and washing product packaging these days - why not put that all on display. Murchison-Hume is one of my favourites and I use their products all over my house (and they make great gifts for people who are hard to buy for!) 

I hope this has given you some tips for how you might better organise and style your laundry. If you aren't renovating, you can still make some improvements to your own laundry. Check out some of the products that are on my current wish list!
