After considering so many gorgeous rustic French baskets in my last post and glancing back at the simplicity and beauty of the laundry room designed by the Giannettis for Patina Farm, I have laundry rooms on my mind. My own lil’ laundry room is awful at the moment, and while the appliances in it get the job done, it is driving me nuts. Dreamy Laundry Room Inspiration to Re-imagine a Timeless Tranquil Design will (hopefully) be an opportunity to get organized and maybe help a few folks out there as well.
Dreamy Laundry Room Inspiration to Re-imagine a Timeless Tranquil Design!
Let’s start with lovely laundry room design inspiration before I begin to share with you the details of why it’s high time I began reimagining our pitiful pass through pretending to be a laundry room. BTW…do you also have a laundry room/mudroom board on Pinterest? Find killer inspo and repin pins from mine HERE!

It Always Helps to Look at Before & After Laundry Rooms!
I love Jenna Sue’s style, and you will be inspired by how she transformed a very forgettable “before” laundry room into a lovely country vision!

It’s not just an aesthetic problem with the space where I do laundry.
The little room is one of those pass-through laundry areas adjacent to the garage, and I have despised it from Day One.
The thing is, when we bought the fixer upper, we planned to demo the laundry room and give the space to the kitchen.
The washer and dryer were supposed to go in the master bath which had plenty of space to accommodate them.
For a variety of reasons, it couldn’t be easily be done. (And trust me, I was more than willing to sock a chunk of change into making the change happen). As a result, the laundry situation has remained the same.
One More Inspiring Laundry Room to Study
Here’s a peek at one of my all-time favorite laundry rooms…the timelessly tranquil one at Patina Farm by Giannetti Home.
Isn’t the little old door amazing!?!
It’s not as if I am asking my beloved to design and somehow engineer a groined vault or anything!!!
And I don’t it’s possible to squeeze a sink into our wee space…but if I did wouldn’t a wall mounted fixture like this be divine!?!
Get Ready for My Awful Not-at-all-ready-for-its-closeup Before Space!
There is just enough space for a washer, dryer, original old cabinets above them and a 6.5′ long closet with bifold doors. We did add a tower of cubbies inside the closet, but I’m not using the space to its full potential.
What is the room lacking, function-wise? A place to properly store clothes to be laundered, an area to fold laundry, and proper storage for cleaning supplies. What is the room lacking, design-wise?
Heavens to Betsy. It can’t boast a lick of loveliness beyond white oak hardwood flooring.
My Laundry Room Needs Love
Design challenges? No room for expansion, no natural light, an ugly exterior garage door opening into the room, and doors everywhere!
What do I mean by doors everywhere? There’s the garage door opening right into it, a pocket door at the other end, and bifold doors stretching between them.
Another challenge is since we don’t have a front load washer/dryer (I love my top load washer!), I cannot design a shelf to install over top as seen in so many smart designs. Hence, it is time to get brainstorming and designing, and I will be keeping you posted on my progress, even if that means confessing that it’s all a hopeless pipe dream!
Time to Make Over the Laundry!
Wish me luck, friends. Wait…don’t just wish me luck; comment with your ideas and laundry room success stories! Things are unlovely in laundrytown, and girlfriend needs hope, doncha know!
Peace to you right where you are.
