My Dream Laundry Room Design (+ a $2,000 Value Giveaway)

laundry room goalsSHOP THE LOOK:

I recently joked on Instagram (here) that I’m not sure when my laundry room lusting first began, but I’m fairly confident that it marked my official foray into adulthood. Although I can’t exactly remember a time when I didn’t drool over a beautifully designed laundry room, it’s only since we purchased our first home (and have one of our own to speak of) that the obsession really and truly began. Ours is currently located in our unfinished basement and, while we’re still a little ways away from pulling the trigger on our own laundry reno, I secretly can’t wait for the transformation. And with National Laundry Day coming up on April 15th, it only seemed fitting to chat about said space today.  

When it comes to laundry room design, however, I’ve noticed a significant shift as of late. These days, they’re very rarely an after thought. Both form and function are married now more than ever to create a space that not only acts as your home’s workhorse, but looks damn good while doing so. Whether you’re incorporating GE’s stunning new designer line of washer and dryers in diamond grey, a deep and delicious farmhouse sink, or the most glorious tile that you’ve ever set your sights on, it’s a no holds barred space and I’m all for it. Following is how I’d design the laundry room of my dreams, if (and slash or when) given the opportunity.

Dream Laundry Room Design


And while I still may be a little ways away from the laundry room of my dreams, I’m really excited to be able to give you the opportunity to get a little closer to yours. I’ve teamed up with GE to give away a diamond grey washer and dryer from their new Designer Line (as seen above). They marry both form and function in the very best of ways, paying homage to the classic top load machines, which are making a huge come back (and for good reason). Simply follow the steps to enter below:

  74. Patricia says:

    Thanks so much for the beautiful inspiration

  75. Nancy Loring says:

    My laundry room consist of wood floors and sheetrock. I am in the process of redoing my laundry room. Narrowing down my choice of flooring, coloring, do I want shelves, what kind of shelves, what kind of counter. Just when I think that I know what I want i see something that i like better. This will be done by summer. I hope.

  76. I NEED a new laundry room. A full gut is the only option at this point! It’s from the 80s and although some friends think I can work with the pastel floral wallpaper, it has to go! Along with the old vanity (I need a deep laundry sink), toilet, and washer/dryer set. Great design board once again, Jacquelyn, and very generous GE giveaway! I’m going to see what else GE has in their collection as I would need a stacked set.

  77. Sarah Scott says:

    Your style is so classic yet chic, I would love to makeover a room similarly! Thanks for the wonderful opportunity!

    I’ve been dreaming about updating my laundry room but there always seems to be something more important (i.e. seen by other people) to do first. But I feel like a beautiful and functional laundry room could make a world of difference in my life so who cares if people don’t ever see it, right?! Thanks for the inspiration!

  81. Carolyn says:

    Lovely inspiration and wishful thinking! My 15 year plus washer was talking to me on laundry day–and not in a good way. It was making sounds I’ve never heard before. Thanks Jacquelyn and GE for a chance to win.

    We just moved into our new-to-us house at the end of December. We have had projects galore and you can bet a finished laundry space is on the list! Right now it’s in our unfinished creepy basement – definitely could use new and improved machines as well as a prettier space! :) love the combination of the Diamond Grey washer and the pale blue cabinet color on your inspiration board.

  105. Angela says:

    Love this look!

  106. Dorothea says:

    What?! There’s a National Laundry Day?! Well, I’d certainly celebrate it if I had such a pretty laundry room – love, love, your design board! (P.S. And glad to hear that top-loaders are making a comeback; I’ve had both, and prefer them over front-loaders. These GE ones are so gorgeous!)

  107. Catherine says:

    Amazing giveaway!

    Also love your cabinet color choice!

  108. Bea says:
