I’ve also rounded up some super cute (and budget friendly) laundry room decor ideas at the bottom too! Today I’m sharing all of our laundry room design plans and giving you a glimpse into what we were starting with for the before pictures.
Unlike most people, our laundry room is seen by pretty much every single person that comes into our house.
We’re going to remove the upper cabinet and cover the wall behind the washer and dryer with faux brick panels and then give them a fun german schmear treatment with joint compound. I’ve ALWAYS wanted to try doing german schmear and love that these faux brick panels are going to make this project super affordable. Again, the industrial floating shelves I have planned for our laundry room design are so easy to replicate and really cheap!
Logan’s dad snagged it for SUPER CHEAP at a Restore in Southern California knowing that I love them. He wasn’t sure if we would be able to find a place for it, but it turned out to be the PERFECT fit for next to our washer and dryer to be used as a utility sink.
Thankfully, this project will be fairly simple because the plumbing is already ready to go in the wall so we don’t want to worry about that part – whew.
Logan is going to build a DIY base cabinet for the farmhouse sink to sit on and provide some extra storage too. Next to the farmhouse sink cabinet, it will connect to a folding counter over the top of the washer and dryer. After looking for the Fixer Upper house online, I remember just how much I loved this laundry room.
Last, but not least, I think adding a rug to the floor in front of the washer and dryer will add a lot of character to the room. A few months ago I accidentally ordered 2 of these buffalo check rugs instead of one – oops. This makes it a perfect rug to add to our farmhouse laundry room, don’t ya think?
I am SO excited to get started on the renovations and can’t wait to take you alongside as we make this laundry room design come to life!
