The Cure for Houzz Envy: Laundry Room Touches Anyone Can Do

About to embark on custom-built laundry room--something planned for last half year to be built by my husband. I want the laundry room to have as much attention and be as attractive as the rest of our newly-bought apartment.

In Israel, the laundry room is generally just beyond a bathroom. So, seemed logical to decorate the laundry room as an extension of the bathroom. Back-splash for small sink will echo the tile that lines the upper walls of bathroom in the recessed area where the recessed lighting is mounted---gleaming shell tile which I found online much cheaper than in the shops. In an effort to relate silver grey trim between the shiny white on the bathroom walls, we're doing one wall in light grey textured wallpaper. Framed photos of our travels will highlight that wall. Lighting is from a ceiling fixture and one light mounted into the shelf above the sink. Mounting a retractable hanger for stuff not meant for the dryer. See pic below. Hope it will come out as nice as the one in my mind's eye!

In a recent kitchen and laundry room remodeling project in a historic home, we created a seamless look in these adjacent rooms and used counter space in the laundry room for a coffee and toast making nook. We installed the washer and dryer in an under the counter configuration that included the same Carrera marble top used in the kitchen. Plenty of space to fold laundry and enjoy a nice cup of coffee at the same time.
