I understand that doing laundry is not something we look forward to; at least, I know I don’t.
But, having a beautifully stylized laundry room can certainly make your experience a little better.
Since most of us have small laundry rooms, I suggest choosing a color that will make it seem a little larger and bounce the light to make you see the stains on the clothes even better.
If you are looking for such a color, you’re in the right place.
I will discuss three of the best paint colors for small laundry rooms to make them seem larger and refreshing.
Green and White
Use a light green color on the walls and complement it with white tiles and cabinets.
This combination brings a spa-like feel to your laundry room, which is a plus.
In addition, you could complement these two colors with brown baskets for putting dirty or clean clothes.
Combining the colors makes your laundry room colorful but not too bright to be “boring.”
There is a popular myth that dark colors make rooms seem smaller, but that’s just what it is, a myth.
Using a dark color will not necessarily make your tiny laundry room appear smaller.
In fact, painting your walls black can create a sense of archived space, such that a person cannot tell where the wall begins or ends.
In addition, a matte finish can make your small room seem even cooler and refreshing.
For a dramatic and classy look, complement the black walls with black-and-white patterned flooring for a contrasting look.
Also, ensure the appliances in the room contrast with the wall and tile flooring colors.
Since laundry rooms can get humid as you use a lot of water, I recommend using semi-gloss paint for the wall finish.
Ideally, paint it as you would do in your bathroom.
If you want something fresh with a crisp look, white will do you justice.
White is a versatile but uncomplicated color that will make your laundry room brighter as it should be.
For an even dramatic look, ensure that the white color on the walls has a subtle yellow undertone.
However, if you want to minimize the yellow undertone, you can add some gray undertones.
The right color undertone can make your space sparkle, but it can also make the room seem dull if you get it wrong.
For example, if you have many white appliances in the laundry room, classic white without the gray or yellow undertone can seem weird since it will look like an all-white space, which is not as cool as I like it.
I bet a utilitarian all-white laundry room is not your idea of excellent paint for a laundry room either.
So, What Are The Best Paint Colours For Small Laundry Rooms?
- Green and White
- Matte Black
- Simple White
While all the three paint colors I’ve recommended are great, my favorite is the green and white combination.
It is simple to achieve, yet it looks classy but not too sophisticated.
Furthermore, the green color can positively influence your thinking, making you enjoy laundry even though it’s not something we often look forward to.
