Change Up Your Lighting Situation

Switching out the light fixtures and upgrading to something a bit more modern is an easy fix for any room - but definitely helpful in your laundry space. New fixtures with the right bulbs can change the look and vibe of your laundry space instantly.

Replace Cabinet Handles

Cabinet handles make a small but mighty impact on the way a room looks. If you have cabinets in your laundry room, consider switching out all the hardware or if possible, painting the current hardware. Black knobs or pulls can add the perfect pop of contrast to white cabinets.

Upgrade Your Sink

Just like a kitchen, adding some subway tile and a ceramic sink can make a space go from drab to fab. White cabinets, black hardware, and your new sink + backsplash will have you wanting to spend more time in your laundry room than you thought was possible - and it won’t crush your wallet!

Spice Up Your Cabinets

Modify the inside of your cabinets with additional storage options to meet your needs. Create open shelves by removing doors so you can sort by types of laundry or family member!

What’s Behind The Door?

Maximize the space behind your door - especially if your laundry room is on the smaller side. A shelf is perfect for storing your iron, laundry detergent, cleaners and cloths.

Hang Some Curtains

Bring color and pattern into your laundry room with fresh curtains. This relatively inexpensive option can really add the perfect touch to your space without having to fuss with paint or wallpaper.
