Design Trends: Hardworking Laundry Rooms
The key to great laundry room design is simple, functionality. A laundry room needs to be easy to clean and easy to keep clean. Below are our top design features of a hardworking laundry room that will make your life, and your laundry day a little easier.
One of the best surface materials to use in a laundry room is tile. Tile is durable, easy to clean, and gives your space a clean and fresh look. You can tile almost any surface in the laundry room-- walls, backsplashes, floors, countertops, you name it. The more surface area you tile, the easier your laundry room is to maintain. Not to mention tile in the laundry room looks beautiful and can add an element of fun!
Brick has always been a commercial project go-to but it's also right at home in residential installations. Brick adds warmth and texture to any space.
Our Glazed Thin Brick is finished with hand mixed, lead free glazes, then fired at high temperatures near 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. This process creates a durable, lasting, easy to clean, and colorful surface-- perfect for high impact installations.

While tile makes your laundry room easy to clean, you'll probably still have a lot of things to store that can get messy-- detergent, hangers, an ironing board, and so on. To keep your space from becoming cluttered, having proper storage in your laundry room is key. Built in cabinetry is a great option to keep all your odds and ends tucked away. You can also use baskets for storage as well as open shelving units on your walls.
Short on space? We love how this combined kitchen and laundry room work together for optimal functionality.
Having a sink in your laundry room makes things a lot easier, and makes the space even more functional. There's no need to trace back and forth from your kitchen when you need to quickly wash something, potentially making a mess along the way. We love how the laundry room below's beautiful tile, cabinetry for ample storage, and built-in sink dedicated to laundry related tasks.
