Thanks for the love and well wishes on yesterday’s Date Night Style post! Hard to believe we were floating in the middle of the Baltic Sea for that…and even harder to believe Mr. SP and I have been together so long! I told him last night I wasn’t sure I could go another 19 years…fortunately he knew I was kidding, and then he said something about me not being a ray of sunshine everyday either. Ha! #whatever #Igotyoursunshine
But then his therapist side kicked in, and he said, ‘Just one day at a time, baby.’ I may have rolled my eyes a little, but, he’s right…one day at a time is a lot easier to wrap my head around!
But enough unsolicited marriage chatter…let’s get to today’s post. It’s been a year in the making, but we finally completed the Laundry Room makeover, and I can safely say, this bright space has completely changed my attitude about laundry!

We completed the Mudroom side first (see it here), and I fully expected to add a large pop of color before revealing the rest of the room…either on the window or with a painted ceiling. But once the final touches were installed, I realized I actually loved the bright white! It really allows the floors to take center stage, and since it’s a room prone to clutter anyway, the white helps minimize that. Or least, the appearance of it!
To make room for the taller washing machine, we raised the cabinets to the ceiling…which made reaching them a little tricky. These rope pulls solved that issue, and add some warmth and texture to the room. Adding the shelf along the back of the washer and dryer created more work space, and gave the top-loading unit more of a built-in look.

The oversized sink and faucet is perfect for big messes…like muddy boots, art projects, and dogs! We also tiled the entire wall as added splash protection.

Even Miss Maggie got her own customized spot for food, water and treats.

I wish I could say the Mudroom side still looked like this, but now it’s heaped with the remnants of a busy school year. I’m just thrilled to not be tripping over it any longer!

Carving out a centralized Command Center has been so helpful in keeping track of papers, invitations, and other important family ‘stuff.’ (Why does there have to be so much stuuuuufffffff?!?!)

Cleaning supplies are tucked behind the door, and kept organized and easy-to-reach with a nifty Elfa system.

We can’t have a reveal post without a Before and After…so just to remind you where we started with this room…

The new laundry room is perfection. You have exceptional taste. The black washing machines really complete the stylish black and white look!

Thank you so much, Charmaine!! I’m so pleased with how it turned out!
Beautiful room, Cassie! How do you like the charging pad? Does it work if you have a phone case on?
I’d love it if it were compatible with iPhones!! I’m waiting to get one of the IKEA cases that makes it work…or for Apple to make their phones wireless charging!
Wow!! I just love every single detail, Cassie!!!!
I legit want to come over and do some laundry. It looks AMAZING!
I’ll save a few loads for you! 😉 xo
Love how bright it is! We are working on our laundry room/pantry and it’s so dark. Must feel great to have it done!!
Beautiful! We have that exact faucet in our kitchen and LOVE it! Well done!
Looks great! Love all the storage and organization! I wish I looked that cute when I did laundry, but I usually save it for the weekends when I look like a total scrub! 😉 I think my favorite details of this space are the IKEA light fixture and the rope pulls on the cabinets. I never would have thought of a rope pull but it looks great!
LOL — If you could only see me now!! 😉 xoxo
Looks so clean and bright and fresh! What plant do you have in your IKEA planter? We have a similar facing window in our laundry room and it would be nice to have something natural in there.
Thanks girlie!! I have no idea what that plant is called…it’s available literally everywhere, and is hard to kill!!
It is a pothos. They are very hard to kill.
Thanks Erin!!! I knew one of my clever readers would know!!! xo
It turned out great! I love the rope details and the bright whites!
Your laundry room looks amazing. Minimalist design at it’s best.
Beautiful space and I love the behind the door cleaning storage! Genius! I am going to look into it for my laundry/mudroom. The rope pulls are so unique, have never seen that before and love it! Good problem solving!
Honestly, I haven’t even read past your sweet marriage yammering yet; (16 years of yammer here) 🙂 Just had to say those rope pulls are sweet genius!! Can’t wait to read the rest!!
LOL — I love those pulls, too!
Looks great! Love all the organization and storage!
Love your laundry room makeover. The rope pulls are so cute and loved the laundry basket.
Love the bright white! And somehow I’m surprised to know your husband has a “real” name. He’s always been Mr. Sugarplum.
haha!!! Sorry to spoil it…he’s forever Mr. SP! 😉
What are the dimensions of this room? Love the functionality of it and BONUS…it is super cute!
It looks so, so pretty! My laundry nook is the saddest area in our home! I’ve been dreaming about adding subway tile to the back wall and now I think I have to! Thanks for the beautiful inspiration!
I’m always amazed at the power of that inexpensive little tile!!!
What a beautiful and functional space! I love it. You did a great job the baskets and the rope pulls are great playful details. I’m hoping sometime in the near future I can make my laundry room this pretty. Thank you for sharing.
Absolutely love it!! Hard to believe it’s the same space!! I often wished that I had a bigger laundry room…..not gonna happen though 😉
I feel you, Mindy!! Every laundry ‘room’ I’ve ever had was a closet!!! It’s so nice to have more space this time!
cute! i love the floors! xo jillian
Cassie, everything looks amazing!! We are in the middle of our laundry room reno and we have a very similar setup. I want the same type of shelf behind our washer/dryer and my husband hasn’t been able to come up with a good plan that will be sturdy enough and fit in with subway tile backsplash. Can you share what you did for the shelf? Thanks! Sandy
Thanks so much, Sandy! It’s just a basic shelf affixed to the wall with a few L-brackets, and it extends down one side to give it more sturdiness. We customized the width so it exactly fit covered the back of the washer/dryer, and added a wide trim to make it look chunkier. Hope that helps!
Thanks – I was just going to ask the same question until I saw you answered it here! Did you move any of the water hookups or electrical outlets or did you just hide them behind the shelf? We have the same setup and my contractor told me that he wouldn’t move anything because the water hookups are supposed to be a certain height. Thanks – love the room!
Thanks Shelley!! We didn’t move any plumbing…the shelf also helped to conceal all those hookups! (Which, unfortunately, were still visible even after adding the taller appliances!! Why do builders do that?!?) We did add two electrical outlets to the Mudroom side for charging, iron, etc.
Your laundry room looks amazing! Who would have though a laundry room could be so pretty!
That looks amazing! I love how you created the perfect space for absolutely everything. I need to give my laundry room a makeover. This was so inspiring.
Thanks so much, Lisa!!! I waited about 2 years before starting the room…it really helped to wait and see how we used the space and what fit our needs! xo
This room is beautiful! Love how light and bright it is now. What color paint did you use? I’m sure it’s listed and I just missed it. 🙂 White paint can be tricky!
Thanks so much, Mona!! I used SW ‘Alabaster White’…it’s my go-to white! Not too warm, not too cool! xo
Love – love – love!!!!
Cassie! It’s so so gorgeous!! I love everything – especially the tile!!
Thanks Sarah!! That means a lot coming from you!! xoxoxo
Your lundryroon makeover is absolutely fabulous
