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!

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“Awesome work by highly experienced, professional painters. They were: Conscious about the amount of time it would take. Ours had a lot of pre-work and took 3 weeks. Accommodating when we added a few last-minute changes Understanding when a heatwave hit and we remove some of the plastic sheeting over windows, which they had to put back up the next day. Accessible, especially the on-site crew (Hi Jose & Victor!) -- always answering questions and checking in. The end result is a perfect paint job that makes our 94-year-old house look brand new. I would definitely hire MBJ again”

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”
