The small and cozy laundry room.
If your laundry area is less of a room and more of a closet, consider a getting a front loading washer and dryer so you can utilize the space above as a table for folding and storing supplies. We love the farmhouse countertop in this laundry closet.

The family sized laundry room.
Sometimes laundry day is a group effort. If you have a large family and need a laundry room that can handle multiple loads of laundry a day, consider this design with space for every family member to sort their own clothes.

Sometimes your laundry room will get more traffic than it does laundry. For laundry rooms that also serve as a mudroom from your back door, consider this design that keeps things functional, and stylish while providing ample walking space.
