1111 Light Lane

Whether your laundry room was carefully designed for your home, like this one from 1111 Light Lane or is an afterthought tucked away in the basement, it's undoubtedly one of the hardest-working areas in the home. Paint is one of the least expensive ways to upgrade your laundry room and make it a place you enjoy spending time in instead of a room you dread coming into. 

Here are nine of our favorite shades of paint to make your laundry room shine.

    A bright, happy color like The Spruce's Sundream is a great way to make your laundry room a place you actually want to be. This light tan is endlessly creamy and has a lovely yellow undertone that adds a bit of vibrancy we love. It works well with white appliances and is a great choice for larger spaces that need a little bit of color to add depth.

    A crisp, cool white shade of paint is a great choice in any room you want to lighten up. We love Benjamin Moore's Vanilla Milkshake because it's a versatile blend of white with just enough hints of gray and beige to give it warmth, but not too much to take away from the bright feel. It's great for pairing with red or black washers and dryers, and will add a lovely contrast that gives your space visual interest.

    If you want to add a little warmth to your laundry room without imposing a dark, dank feeling, consider a light beige. Sherwin-Williams' Accessible Beige is a warm neutral that has warm still feels bright and airy. It's a great choice for transitional laundry rooms that can be seen from other spaces (such as off a kitchen or a bathroom) as it won't overwhelm or draw too much attention.

    Gray paint is always a lovely alternative to white. The Spruce Best Home's Morning Fog is a great, muted shade of silvery gray that will open up a small laundry room but still add a lot of texture. It has a hint of green undertone that gives it depth, and would pair beautifully with other neutrals or a deeper moody accent.

    We love a spunky color like Behr's Pink Mimosa for turning your laundry room into a destination room. This bright pink shade has orange undertones and is perfect for smaller laundry rooms that could use a little extra personality. Pair it with cool neutrals like white or go all out and create a bright coral palette with varying shades of orange and red.
