Laundry all dressed up in black and white.
Nothing mundane here. Think style, sophistication and glamour. A laundry room ready for it’s close-up in timeless black and white.
But, how exactly do you you replicate this chic designer look?
They key is to keep it simple and unified. Add texture and tone elements true to the desired monochrome quest. Give attention t to appliances, sink fixtures, cabinetry, wall, counters, flooring, windows, lighting and accent pieces to construct a space that is comprehensibly designed.
Commit, don’t be timid in your vision. Experiment with various materials, fabrics, and colors to achieve a look uniquely reflective of your taste.
Try for a few bold elements contrasted against more subtle hints. Interchange big and small accents to achieve an collective design ideal.
Wallpaper is featured in many of the showcased laundry rooms. The laundry space is a perfect backdrop for a bit of whimsy, bold graphic or subtle texture easily achieved in a wallpaper design or wall mural. This type of wall treatment is often effective simply by selecting a singular wall as a focus.
Tile is also prominently use as a wall treatment. Some laundry rooms highlight tile back splashes while others emphasize tile treatments all throughout the wall space.
Walls can also be dramatically painted as featured in the laundry room by Dwelling Interiors.
Laundry themed artwork or your individual favorite masterpieces can also adorn your walls to add interest and focal points.
A favorite way to achieve a sophisticated look is the use of black and white tile flooring. Black and white checkerboard and harlequin tile are heavily used in our showcased design inspirations. This look evokes a retro feel of luxury.
Moroccan and octagonal black and white tile are also gorgeous flooring options.
Lighting is an important element in laundry rooms. A good light source can add warmth, glamour and most importantly functional illumination. Laundry rooms are often tucked in basements, windowless rooms or closets so adding lighting accents can assist in making laundry tasks less challenging. Consider adding can lights or under-the-cabinet lighting to enhance tasks that require a greater focus such as folding clothing or ironing. Laundry is often done in the evening hours, so you will want to make sure that your ideal laundry room is ready to work day and night.

When selecting decor accents allow yourself to have fun. Laundry rooms are little treasure troves that allow us to experiment with a design concept that may sometimes be unique to the look and feel of other household rooms. Accents do need to be all laundry related. If you have favorite collectibles looking for a home — the laundry room might be just the perfect place for them
Decorating your laundry room needn’t break the bank. Source your garage, closets and guest rooms for forgotten pieces that are longing for a new home. Locate a few unique and functional decor accents at your favorite shops (wink, wink, wink), garage sales or eBay to add special touches that define your laundry space.
The design genius of black and white laundry room is that it thrives on a two-point color balance. Stay true to this design equilibrium by removing unnecessary visual clutter. Store as many items as you can in cabinets and off of laundry counters. If you have open cubbies purchase decorative storage accents to laundry product essentials. Detergents can be tastefully displayed in clear glass or black and white decorative themed tin canisters. Select color-specific woven baskets are attractive and purposeful hiding places for wool dryer balls, dryer sheets and other laundry necessities. Continue to stay true to the color harmony, by keeping your laundry tidy and hidden either with built-in hampers or decorative stand-alone clothes hampers and laundry baskets in either black or white.
