Six Fresh Laundry Rooms


White laundry room

 

Laundry may not be glamorous, but everyone has it. Make the task less of a chore with a fabulous laundry room.

 

When designing a home, a laundry room can be a much-needed luxury, especially for larger families. Counter and hanging space is recommended for folding and drying clothes, and an ample storage area works best for those bulky detergent boxes.

 

To make even more use of the space, why not add a workspace in the room for a secluded office? Or place your laundry room within the closet?

 

Whatever the use of your laundry room, make sure it’s just as stylish as it is functional. Here are six pristine examples from our listings.
