Laundry room makeover

When I started thinking of redoing my laundry room, I knew I wanted to have a fun, bright space that would make me want to do laundry. Laundry has to be my least favorite household activity, so having a bright space is a must. I began by choosing classic, timeless tile and my ideas flowed from there.

Tile Choices

I decided to do a plain white chevron tile for 2 reasons. The first being that I knew I wanted wallpaper and since I hadn't decided on the wallpaper until a little later, I wanted to choose a plain tile that would match any wallpaper that I choose. The wallpaper was chosen after I spent hours and hours scrolling my favorite shop, https://www.coloraydecor.com/, whom I partnered with in the past, and you can see those projects here.


The second reason I chose this plain white chevron tile is because it is very inexpensive. I had first contemplated doing a cement tile on the wall, but I did not want to spend that much and I wanted the versatility of a plain tile, which was still very interesting. If I wanted to redecorate the space, the tile on the wall and the floor will likely match anything. Black and white is classic and timeless and that is why I love it so much.


The floor tile was a very easy choice for me. I knew I wanted a plain black, matte, hex for ages and I knew that the laundry room would be the perfect place. I found it at Flor N' Decor, but Home Depot also carries black hex, as does the Tile Shop. I went with a glacier white grout because I wanted the grout lines to really stand out.

After I installed both tiles, I knew that this pattern from ColorayDecor was the perfect choice. The poppies just took my breath away. More importantly, it totally was the vibe that I wanted for this laundry room. This peel n stick is the easiest thing ever. Do not fear getting your own and trying it out. I have forever wanted to put some wallpaper up, but have been so scared to. When I discovered ColoryDecor it resolved my fears and now it is my go-to online shop for wallpaper. Everything just meshed together so perfectly in this laundry room and I could not be more excited.
