what color would you paint a laundry room? - Page 2

post #21 of 36
My new laundry room was painted a darkish slate-grey color because I thought it looked good with my cherry red washer and dryer.

The laundry room is off the office and the office is painted the same color. I thought I would like it, but honestly, I find it oppressive. It is heavy and dark.

We're going to repaint both the office and the laundry room very soon...probably a watery blue or a silvery moss green...something much, much lighter than the dark grey we have in there. It was a bad choice, really, especially since there are no windows in either room...

Sorry, I should have made it clear that it's not mine!! Check out that woman's flickr photos of her home...it is sooo beautiful and clean and decluttered.

I vote for something bright and citrusy. My laundry room (okay, it's a closet) is off-white and it just looks dingy and dirty. If it weren't a PITA to get the machines in and out, I'd repaint it in a bright yellow or orange!

Mine is light yellow. It is a tiny little room that follows on from the bathroom and leads out to the backyard / garden. The bathroom is cobalt, and the previous owners had the laundry navy, I guess to make it disappear, but I wanted it brighter and lighter. In my ideal world it would be an art deco peppermint green with black and white enamalware and that sort of thing, but that looked clashy with the cobalt so I'm doing the front entry that way instead.

Well fall is my favorite season and was an inspiration in color choices...I painted my craft room a bright pumpkin orange with white trim and black and white accesories...

I am going to use the rest of the pumpkin color to paint my laundry closet!

I am wondering if you have an example of what kind of lavender color you like? I love the IDEA of lavender colored rooms, but have yet to see a color swatch or picture that I would be satisfied with. Everything is too pink...or blue..or grey...

On topic, I would suggest with PPs a nice, bright, light color that you love. One of my favorite time-killing activities is to surf on Flickr using key words like color, house, home, kitchen, Behr, etc and see colors in action so to speak.

I was thinking lime or apple green. Someone mentioned blue and white which is also a great choice.

Our laundry room is about 3 feet wide and off our kitchen. Whatever color we paint the kitchen we will coordinate with the laundry corner. But, we'll probably give it a pop color & not a bland one.
