I'm trying to come up with ideas...

personally something bright and happy- yellow, apricot, light blue. I can't stand a dark one when I seem to spend some time in there.

I vote for light blue with white trim! Crisp and clean.

Any happy color that you love. Something that will make it seem light and airy. I'd probably go with periwinkle or apple green, but pick what YOU love!

Another vote for yellow. I'm actually gonna paint my laundry room this weekend, and yep..it's yellow!

I picked a very light purple for mine, with white trim. It's also a bathroom.

I also vote for whatever color you love. Also if you like wallpaper border they have some very cute ones with laundry themes...clothes on a line, old washboards, etc. Just go to any wallpaper web site and do a search for laundry or laundry room. I would love to do that at about chair rail height!

All of the cabinets in my laundry room are cream colored and I have this washer and dryer. We're going to put a light sand colored formica countertop over them. So I'm leaning toward a light blue, almost white color for the walls. I agree with everyone else: the lighter the better. My laundry rooms have always felt like caves and I REALLY want something light and airy for once!

i would do a fun color i'm too scared to use elsewhere in the (more public areas of the) house! probably something citrus-inspired. tangerine? lime? something crisp and bright.

we recently looked at a house that had a red laundry room (ok, it was more of a closet than a room!) and it looked great.

I would do turquoise, because it's my favorite color. But you should probably do your favorite color. If I wasn't going to do that, I'd go with sky blue or a fern green.

I agree that you should go with a- something you love and b- something light, clean and fresh!

I have a medium green in mine, it's connected to the kitchen and it's the same color. 3 years and still makes me very very happy when I see those rooms!

I'm soon to paint my tiny mudroom/laundry room in Bonny Cream (a pastel yellow), by Behr paints. It's the same color as my kitchen and dining area, which connect to the laundry room--bright, happy, and ensures continuity instaed of "choppiness."

A happy color. For me those might be yellow or blue.

Have fun!

Grey and then the lint won't show

I'd probably do a pale yellow with white trim.
