Laundry Room Decorating
by Giorgina Devereaux
Few people think about laundry room decorating, instead thinking a laundry room isn't an exciting room to look at.
We only spend enough time in there to put clothes in the washer and take clothes out of the dryer.
Most people wouldn’t think to decorate laundry room spaces in the house because it’s not like we sleep there or entertain guests in that room.
Despite this, even laundry rooms deserve some attention because, after all, they are part of our home.
You will be amazed
at the choices available for laundry room decorating.
A great way to add
color to your laundry room decorating is by accenting one wall.
If you prefer to
leave the wall as is, you can add a laundry room wall border around the entire
room. The wall border is placed in the area of the wall closest to the ceiling.
There are wall borders with laundry room designs, such as clothes hanging on a
For laundry room wall decor, you have the following choices:
Art Prints: There are lovely art prints to choose from. Some have a picture of an iron, an ironing board, a clothes line with a clothes pin, clothes pins stacked vertically and horizontally, a dress form, a laundry basket, and a framed print that has a long list of laundry room rules.
Hooks for Framed
Prints: Hang your laundry room art prints with decorative hooks.
Vintage Wall Art: Another type of art that can be displayed in laundry room decorating is vintage wall art. There are beautiful vintage laundry themes, such as, the Ivory Soap Girl and Soap and Washer Signs consisting of nostalgic advertisement for powdered soap and early washing machines.
The Soap and Washer signs are made from wood and have metal hangers attached for easy hanging. Furthermore, these signs are manufactured with a distressed look to give it the appearance of being aged and weathered.
Quotes: Other ways to spruce up your laundry room walls is by hanging
wooden signs that have quotes.

Stencil Your Quote: Another way to add a quote to your laundry room wall is by doing a stencil. You can have the stenciled quote custom made and then decide on the ideal paint color to finish the job. It’s a fun and creative project to undertake.
Other Lettering: You can also find hand carved lettering that spells out “Laundry” for your room. It will look fabulous displayed on a shelf.
Plaque(s): Other great wall décor includes hanging a large safety pin plaque or a clothes pin plaque above a laundry sign to accent it.
Another idea is to hang a decorative washboard. You can find them made of wood with a metal washboard center. It hangs by the wire hanger and comes in burgundy, brown, and ivory colors. It is very country and adorable.
