Laundry Room Tour

LAUNDRY ROOM TOUR - Clean Mama

I’m slowly making it through my home tour this year and today I’m sharing my laundry room with you. We just did a little redo of the teeny tiny space so I thought it would be a perfect time to share it with you. You can see our previous laundry room in this post (with some other laundry tips too) if you’re curious.

A couple things to note:  the laundry room is on the 2nd floor between the kids’ bedrooms and it’s small – it’s a 5.5 foot square space. I absolutely love it! Sure, I’d love a larger laundry room with a folding counter and a sink or more room for a larger drying rack, but I’m totally happy with the space and love having a 2nd floor laundry room.

With such a small space, there are only a few things that actually fit making decorating it both easy and difficult. I have it pared down to the basic necessities:

  • washer + dryer
  • drying rack
  • wall shelf
  • ironing board
  • laundry supplies
  • ironing supplies
  • containers to keep supplies tidy

When we re-did the laundry room a couple weeks ago, we had the old washer and dryer removed, I completely cleaned the room, had tile installed (the linoleum was removed), and then I painted the whole room white and repainted the trim.

We chose a plank style gray and white porcelain tile for the floors – we only needed 2 boxes – a plus side to an itty bitty laundry room!

I already had this shelf but it was a creamy/off-white color and when we hung it didn’t look right so I painted it a soft gray.

I had this drying rack and didn’t need to paint it because the white is a true white (it’s whiter than this image in real life) and matched the wall paint color nicely.

I don’t iron often, but I love having the ironing board on the back of the door – it keeps it off the floor and out of the way. The ironing board is from Target and the over the door ironing board holder is from The Container Store.

This project started when Samsung asked me if I’d like to try their new washer and dryer – of course I said yes! I’ll talk more about them in an upcoming post post but I love how the black stainless steel looks in the room.

I changed up some of the containers for laundry and ironing supplies – the ones at the top are from HomeGoods and the buckets on top of the washer are from The Container Store. I keep extra supplies and the iron in the baskets on the shelf and in the larger bucket I keep dirty microfiber cloths that are waiting to be washed and in the smaller bucket I keep laundry supplies that are in use. You can find my favorite laundry supplies under Saturday on this page.
