The Eye-Catching Laundry Rooms Decorating
Multipurpose room design
One of the best ways to save space is to combine and create a multipurpose room. This HGTV Green Home 2011 space includes a separate spot that houses the laundry room, craft room and home office. Concealed by a double-door workstation, the washer/dryer unit stays hidden unless it’s mid-cycle, making the room feel less like a workroom and more like a fully functioning space.
Features of this laundry room that also doubles as a mudroom, recycling center, craft zone, gardening spot, and an organized catchall for shoes, scarves and coats. Typically a room with this many functions would sound busy, chaotic and cluttered, but this eco-friendly hot spot provides plenty of storage space — both concealed and stylishly displayed — to ensure a crisp, clean look.
Hidden Dirty Laundry
For apartment dwellers and those with limited space, a hideaway laundry room is essential. Compact washer/dryer units make it easy to conceal the laundry room. With a sliding door, even a small hallway closet can be converted without impeding traffic. Wall shelves and between-machine storage bins make for an organized, self-contained utility space.

Small laundry room
This small, narrow space certainly makes up for its size with an abundance of smart wall-to-wall storage options and countertops. To further conserve space, the storage cabinets below the office area convert into an ironing center and pullout hampers.
