The Only 2 Things You Need to Do to Majorly Upgrade Your Laundry Room
Laundry: We know, not the most glamorous task in the world. But the way we see it, that truism should be even more incentive to make the space special. Whether you’re working with a closet, a mudroom hybrid or designated chamber (lucky duck, you), here’s how to luxe up your laundry-doing setup—via two incredibly simple styling tips.
Upgrade Your Laundry Baskets
Plastic bins and hampers? Nylon laundry bags? It’s no wonder laundry day bums you out so damn much. Swap out your eyesore gear for pretty woven or canvas options, and the room will immediately feel less utility, more warm-and-homey (like this gorgeous setup designed by Amber Interiors). Bonus points: They’re endlessly versatile; you can also use ‘em as chic camouflage for your detergent, dryer sheets and stain fighters.

Add Some Plant Life
Scientifically speaking, plants are proven mood boosters. Aesthetically speaking, they take a room from forgotten to cared-for. In the laundry room especially, we love fresh greenery in a space dedicated to fresh linens. Add a potted plant (or perky cut greens in a vase) to your shelving, sink area or heck, atop your washer itself. Not that this stunning space by Studio LIFE/STYLE needs upgrading—but just look at the impact these simple palm fronds add.
