What to paint my laundry room/half bath?!

January 25, 2014 in Design Dilemma
I have a small laundry room and half bath. Washer & dryer are stainless steel. The toilet and vanity are pure white. The floor tile is brown. The trim is white. The majority of the house is painted a very light gray. Now that we've lived here a couple of years, I'd like to slowly start adding color to the rooms. First up is the laundry room. Any suggestions to ease into color...without going overboard? Remember it still has to flow with the rest of the house, as I don't intend to paint everything all at once.

Photos of the laundry / half bath would be helpful.

It can be any color you want! Have fun - it's just a laundry room!

Tiffany blue, Kelly green or the purple that is the color of the year. Pick a color you love and go wild. I picked a beautiful blue tile for my laundry room just because it makes me happy.

I agree, pick a color that won't make you so sad when you are in there doing laundry (that is unless you are one of those people that love doing laundry). :)

I really like that blue! I think I may try it. I know its just a laundry room, but it's located right off of my entryway...therefore most people catch a glance when the come in my house. And it's also my main floor bathroom. I'm not one to go 'wild' with color. Palladian Blue seems safe & pretty! Thanks! :)

I like that green color as well, but its similar to what I already have in the walls in that room. Except I have a much lighter version of it. Otherwise it would have also been a contender.. ;)

I love brown and teal together and the laundry is a great place to add a little zip. Some nice brown and teal towels and accessories.

I wanted to freshen up my laundry room so I painted it blue, it's called solitude by Benjamin Moore. I love the clean, calming look of this room, it makes folding clothes bearable.

1ladybrown, I painted two of my bathrooms this gorgeous color. It is so serene and uplifting - I can't say enough about it!

I painted my bedroom in BM Gray Owl. Any suggestions on color(s) for bedding?

I agree with karemore55 and Mforr, Palladian Blue is a fabulous color. Here it is in a laundry room for you to see
