What was the old nursery rhyme that declared Monday to be laundry day? Can you imagine doing laundry only one day a week? Most people I know do laundry every day. Because so many of us are spending so much time in the laundry room, we want our surroundings to be as nice as possible. Most of my clients are no longer content to have their laundries located in a dark, dusty corner of the basement. They are bringing their laundries closer to the bedroom area, the kitchen, or the mudroom.
I'm a fan of locating the laundry near the mudroom....where is your ideal laundry spot?
Many people are putting a counter across the tops of the washer and dryer, creating a working surface to fold laundry or set baskets. The height of counter ends up being a little higher than normal, but I think this is a great feature.
A pretty farmhouse sink, marble countertops and an island dress up this utilitarian space.

The long slim cabinet pulls give this laundry room a nice modern look. I also like the washer hidden behind the cabinet door.
This laundry rooms seems to be doubling as a butler's pantry. Love the look, but I might have tried to find a way to use different appliances in order to have a continuous countertop.
The reclaimed wood floor and oversized laundry table give this laundry room an old-world feel
These open shelves give this laundry area a casual cottagy feel
This looks like a laundry room doubling as a mudroom space or a dressing room...not sure which, but I like the clean lines and the small bench.
Another feature that seems to be popular is a hanging pole over the washer/dryer.

This pretty wallpaper dresses this laundry room up nicely.
I like this laundry potting room combination. The addition of a table makes a nice workspace for either activity.
