Completed laundry room

 I am thrilled and relieved to share the happy news ....my laundry room is done, done and I love it .
It's so nice to have another finished room.
 Here is how the laundry room started minus the wall cabinet which we moved from the kitchen into the laundry room, bland and blah , but it is main floor and has yard access so I was more than thrilled to have it. But it needed to be pretty. Below is our inspiration photo from Urban Grace, we wanted our laundry room to be just as stylish and pretty.

 I built custom cabinetry and added crown moulding and painted it all bedford grey a Martha Stewart colour. I added tall wainscoting and also painted that the same grey to unify the space.
 I recently built a counter top from lumber and under mounted a sink. The wall colour is heavy goose also a Martha Stewart colour. The counter is stained Kona by varathane.
 I added white subway tile and marble accent. The faucet is from Home Depot and is a bar faucet which is a pull out.

 The rug I found at Ikea.
 I installed lots of hooks for hang drying and organization.
 On my handy display shelf I keep a cutlery basket for drying paint brushes as I always seem to be painting...
The closet came with standard sliders which I removed, I found them just in the way. I recently hung drapes on an I track to conceal the closet,(cleaning and pantry items) and to add a little softness.

Well there it is , I am going to keep up on all of my laundry and chores having such a lovely space to keep me organized.
How much do you love your laundry room ? is it your dream laundry room or is it in desperate need of attention.
Let's enjoy a peek at my last laundry room ....now you know why I so love my my new laundry room.....

Yes. I saw RR's laundry room and could hardly believe it was the same room as the before pic.

I love the laundry room - so much thought went into every detail to either add function or beauty. I'm so glad you are going to be in Jen's book - your home is beautiful and really deserves to be in a book.

I do love a great laundry room ! You have put a lot of thought into it.
Im just finishing up mine now. Will be doing the big reveal next week.
Its funny family have said " why are you putting so much thought into how your laundry looks ?" I just look at them & SIGH , if they dont get the feeling you have of standing in a beautiful space doing your chores , there is no use explaining.
Keep up the great work

two of my favourite bloggers! I love what you did in your laundry room.....when we moved into our house, our laundry room was so small (entrance at the side door) so we changed it to just a mud room, and now the laundry is in the basement....in an unfinished room. I love our mudroom, but long to have a pretty laundry room as well!!! Maybe someday,...

How did you get the washer and dryer back farther against the wall? I am having such a hard time even starting on a design for the laundry room because I need to make my own countertops to accommodate for the depth of my units.

Just Beachy said...

Ruth,
they do still stick out quite a bit from the wall , I pushed them back as far as I could.

Dustbunny said...

Love your laundry room... it looks amazing and so inviting!
Could you tell me what tile you used on the floor?
Thanks!

Just Beachy said...

Sorry dustbunny , the floor is a ceramic tile that looks kind of like stone.

Kelli said...

So beautiful! I would love to know what finish you painted the wainscoting and the walls? I'm doing a similar project for home office bu don't know what finish...

Just Beachy said...
