It may be one of the hardest-working spaces in the house, but that doesn't mean your laundry room can't be lovely. Select wall covering and paint in cheerful hues that take the chore out of doing the wash: A small laundry space can be a fun spot for wallpaper or a funky wall embellishment.
Opt for easy-clean countertops and practical flooring. If you're installing new cabinetry, consider a line with classic details such as crown molding and glass doors so you can easily locate supplies and put a few treasures on display for interest and personal style.
