Inside: 63 Basement Laundry Room Ideas

Doing laundry in the basement doesn’t have to be a dark and dank experience.

I think it’s safe to say that most of our basement laundry rooms either look like this or have looked like this in the past!

But long gone are the days of dark, cold, and unfinished laundry room basements. We’ve got easy ways to make your subterranean laundry room bright and functional.

Check out our favorite basement laundry room ideas that will bring life to your dark and dim space.

Use Bright Colors

A color palette of white or bright colors keeps this basement space light and cheery.

Add Big Patterns

Basements are a great place to go bold and have fun with your design. By using a fun patterned wallpaper you can create a space that is bold and unique.

Use Accents and Accessories

Usually, a basement utility room with a washer, dryer, slop sink, and upright freezer is far from the most attractive place in the house. But the wood countertop and table, graphic rug, wall art, and other decor items add tons of charm and style. A live plant may not be viable in a basement, but a faux one can also provide just the right touch.

Pack in Closed and Open Storage

Open shelves in a laundry room are great for often-used items while standard cabinets are handy for stashing seasonal items or cleaning supplies. A closet rod hung above the sink makes a practical drying rack.

Make It Multi-Purpose

Many older homes have the unfortunate situation where the basement laundry room is also a bathroom. It’s the price you have to pay for vintage charm. But that doesn’t mean the space has to be an eyesore. A natural-stone countertop mixed with various-sized floor and wall tile makes the space practical and efficient as well as pleasant and comfortable.
