Color Ideas for Laundry Rooms - Bay Area Painting Tips

he laundry room is not a showpiece in anyone's house (at least, not anyone I've met!). Instead, it is a practical room that is rarely seen by anyone other than appliance repairmen, and of course, whoever does the laundry. For those reasons, most people don't put a lot of thought into what color to paint the laundry room. Still, given the time and energy it takes to paint any room, it's best to give it some thought.

One of the main considerations in the laundry room paint color question is, "How does this color make me feel?" Very few people enjoy doing laundry, but taking the time to craft a room that feels pleasant can help reduce the unpleasant nature of the job. Most people report that lighter colors help them have a more positive outlook, so we recommend leaning towards light blues or tame yellows. In the neutrals, try light gray or khaki for a positive feel.

Besides how the room itself feels, you also need to consider how it fits with the rest of your house. If the interior of the laundry room is visible from another space in the house, make sure the colors coordinate between the mutually visible rooms. Tan and gray are safe bets that will coordinate with almost anything. Still, you can use a brighter, fun color, as long as it doesn't create a jarring contrast when seen from some other room.

Finally, you will want to consider the other elements of the room itself. If the room is small (and most laundry rooms are), it's best to use just one solid color. Too many colors will make the room feel cramped. Next, look at the countertops, or flooring, or other decorations. Are there any colors in them that you could pull out as the inspiration for your wall color? Also, if your washer and dryer aren't white, you can choose a color inspired by the appliances!
