Thank You!
As a budget choice at the time we used 3/4" MDF with a 3/4" edge added to give it a depth of 1 1/2" and is painted with a grey paint and then top coated with a pearl glaze to give it a slight sheen to match the finish on the adjacent taupe laminate counter.
There are soft grey laminates that you can have made in flatwork which is what the taupe counter is.
Hope this helps!

4. Treat stains right away. I've had this happen to me before. A spritz of soda gets on my shirt. I dab a little water on it, and the stain seems to go away. But later on, it reappears. What happened? The sugar in the stain will oxidize in the air and eventually turn yellow or brown. It's best to treat a stain right away — when you're away from home a spritz of Oxi-Clean Spray-A-Way or a a mix of dishwashing detergent and water will help.
Buckminster Green LLC added this to Contractor Tips: Wise Advice for Laundry Room Design
A noise you don't want to ignore is what's known as "water hammer." Newer machines add small bursts of water repeatedly, and the water turning on and off can rattle the pipes in the wall, potentially causing leaks. If you hear a clunking sound when the washer runs, consult a plumber before it's too late. On the outside of the wall, a burst washer hose can flood your house in a minute, so make sure you are using braided stainless steel reinforced hoses.

ideas The closer your laundry room is to the rest of your house, the more sound will be an issue. If you are building the room from scratch, install batt insulation in the walls to reduce noise. These are heavy appliances that move around a lot. If the laundry is going to be on an upper floor, the floor joists should be reinforced to handle the load. Stiffening the floor will also reduce noise from rattling objects nearby.
