Busting 3 Myths about Laundry Rooms

The laundry room is often considered a functional room that should not necessarily be a part of the overall home décor. Landry rooms should also have some aesthetic appeal just like any other part of your home. This post will bust some dogmatic practices relating to laundry room décor.

Myth 1. The Laundry Room Should be Green or Blue

 Mint green and baby blue are great color schemes but it is okay to depart from these conventional hues. It is okay to go out on a limb and try out some new bold colors.  Choose a color palette that brings some energy and vibrancy to the space.  This may just cheer you up when during a late night session of laundry.

Myth 2.  Exercise Restraint When Mixing Patterns and Colors

 Don’t be afraid to be bold when combining floral patterns and color shades. Avoid monograms and monotones and instead, try bold patterns and striking colors. Use some creativity to create an interior that will warm your heart every time you walk into the room.

Myth 3.  The Room Should Look Like a Store

Despite the fact that it is more of a functional space, the laundry area should not necessarily have a utilitarian look.  Fluorescent lighting, bland cement walls, and wire shelving should be replaced with modern lighting fixtures, colored walls and proper shelving units.
