3 LAUNDRY ROOM DESIGN IDEAS Gone are the days when a laundry room in a dark corner of the basement was a thing. Homeowners now want a space that is just as beautiful as it is functional. But say that your laundry room is indeed in a dark corner of the basement, how can you liven it up without spending a fortune? Start with making it feel cozy; if your basement is unfinished and you have concrete floors, add a large neutral rug in front of the washer and dryer. Just make sure not to choose something that can’t get wet – because overflows do happen. Next,

add some shelving and line it with woven baskets; not only will this give you tons of storage space, the baskets will add style and warmth. Lastly, put up a cool light fixture. Just because it ’s a laundry room doesn’t mean it should have plain old pot lights or a bare bulb. Pick a fixture that hangs down a bit so it catches the eye. Choose something woven

to play off the baskets or a matte black fixture to give your laundry room more of an industrial style.
