9. Old Meets New
J.P. Hoffman Design Buildreimagined this small laundry room in a Boston-area home. The layout didn’t change but the team added a sink, custom cabinetry painted a warm gray and a wood counter for folding with a removable panel to access the washer-dryer hookups. Pretty porcelain star-patterned floor tile adds old-world charm.
8. Cottage Convenience
The homeowners of this laundry room in Laguna Hills, California, wanted the space to do double duty as a mudroom. Designer Leah Vitrano of Mindy Gayer Design delivered a functional and stylish combo space with a washer and dryer, drying rod, apron-front fireclay sink, and cabinets and cubbies with baskets for storage. Cottage character pops up in the paneled backsplash and the two-tone diamond-patterned terra-cotta tile floor.
6. Triple Duty
This space needed to accommodate three activities — laundry, work and crafts — so designer Seashal Belldina of Interiors by Seashal stepped in to fulfill the McMurray, Pennsylvania, homeowners’ wishes. The result is three zones in one space, with plenty of cabinetry and light and airy finishes, including marble-look quartz countertops, blue zellige wall tile and patterned porcelain floor tile.

The graceful variety of finishes and features in this Edmonds, Washington, laundry helped make this the most-saved laundry room photo of 2022.
Designer Jessica Nelsontransformed what used to be the home’s kitchen into an attractive, multifunctional space that serves as a laundry; mudroom; and storage area for crafts, seasonal decor and wrapping paper. A vintage-inspired sink and faucet, folding counter and butcher block countertop are grounded by whitewashed brick floors meant to patina with age. Subtly patterned wallpaper adds more character.
