HouseTalkN's Top Laundry Rooms!

I am not too proud to share that a reoccurring fantasy of mine is to have a laundry room like these. 
All the other mother's would say "She knows her way around the laundry room, if you know what I'm sayin'."


I mean, REEEEALLY? Fresh flowers in a laundry room? I have raunchy soccer cleats smelling up my laundry room. Really.



Three is never a crowd! Do I spy with my little eye three machines? Genius. 

Thank goodness for the "laundry" sign above the window. I might have been confused, otherwise.


Be.still.my.heart. This is my favorite. I love a purdy table to fold my laundry on. Although, I haven't seen the table surface of my own since 1997. 

REEEEEALLY? Is a laundry room really supposed to have artwork? And granite? And, what's with the mirror? Have you ever once stopped to check yourself out while folding undies? If I had this laundry room, I would wear the undies on my head and do a happy dance for myself in that mirror!

I predict that the next laundry room trend will be a mini-bar, a wine fridge or maybe even a built in keg spout. Ladies, we work hard and dog gone it, we deserve it.
My laundry room is in our basement, aka "THE DUNGEON". It is right next to the room we affectionately call "Mrs. Bates' room." (Yes, we are saving for therapy)
Instead of swooning or polishing the granite or arranging fresh flowers, my laundry room makes me feel like:



How about you? Do you know your way around the laundry room?

  1. Fun! I did a post on laundry rooms back when I was doing my HOuse 'HO series. One had a flatscreen over the machines.

  2. This post had me laughing until my side hurt! But nonetheless, if my master bath was a nice to look at as some of these laundry rooms I would do the happy dance too! I want the one with the laundry sign above the window... what couldn't I do in there? I see a coffee pot and a tv so I can just hang out and be "busy" doing laundry (are you really busy when the washer just started the fill up cycle?) Can you guess what I'll be spending my kids inheritance on? Thanks so much for the inspiration.

  4. I really needed a good laugh today and you succeeded in giving me one! You really crack me up you know! I love all the laundry rooms you posted! Mine is pretty small and doubles as the mudroom and it definitely lives up to the "mudroom" name! Boys! Since I am in my laundry room for what seems like the entire day sometimes, I could definitely use that minibar!

  7. Thanks for the laugh! When we redid our house, we were going to put the laundry in the dark dank scary basement but a last minute change had us carve out a small closet in my girls bathroom. It's upstairs which is nice but it's tiny! Only room in their for a washer/dryer - no mirrors, no paintings (but maybe I could try and jam a wine fridge in there!

  12. I can look at all the pictures in the world of lovely bedrooms, bathrooms, living rooms, etc. and never feel a pang of envy. But when I see laundry rooms like this I am envious beyond compare. My laundry area is among all the other areas in my basement that are "making do" - like the gym, the work table, the computer lab (my husband is a geek), storage, wine cellar, etc. It isn't really creepy, just crazy and crowded. Someday.......
