Laundry Room Makeover

Andy and Lauren asked for my help in updating their laundry room/mudroom.  (You may remember their family room that I blogged about here). Although the house has a "formal" front door, this room is really the entrance that gets used by family and friends.

The star of this makeover is the wallpaper from Brewster Home Fashion. It takes a bland room and adds interest and glamour! If you're in the market for wallpaper, check them out...beautiful papers in everything from traditional to contemporary--we found ours at our local Sherwin-Williams.

Below is the view looking out the back door. The walls were beige, with the doors and trim painted to match.

The after, has crisp white trim which contrasts to the beautiful wallpaper and makes it stand out even more.


The old indoor/outdoor carpeting was replaced with high tech rubber flooring--this is a different approach to the typical  laundry flooring. Here is a link to the Coin Flex Tiles.


The back of the room leads to a large screened porch. You can see the old carpet in this photo.

By painting the wood door white, the entire room is now cohesive.

There is a small powder room off this room which got a mini-makeover with a soft grey paint color and new tile on the floor.

The old washer and dryer will be replaced with shiny new red front loaders.

Since that won't happen until the old ones break down I decided to try by hand at photo imaging and show you what that will look like.
Okay, not the greatest photo imaging job but you get the idea!
