Try these simple and stylish ideas that will have you falling in love with your laundry and feeling at home in a fresh new space.

Let’s face it, the laundry is often the forgotten room of the house, but it doesn’t have to be. A luxe laundry might seem like something that only exists on Pinterest, but with these quick and easy tips, you can create a high-end room that will ensure you always #FeelGreatAtHome and have you looking for any excuse to do the washing!

Organise Your Space

Clutter is the enemy when it comes to creating a luxe laundry so organising your space is an easy way to give it an instant lift. Storage solutions don’t just have to be practical; woven baskets and linen storage boxes can bring a coastal touch to your laundry and hide less appealing items such as cleaning products and dirty washing. Once you have culled the clutter, having a clear worktop means that you can add cute containers for washing powder, pegs, and other laundry necessities that match your chosen style and add to the overall design of the space rather than being an unwelcome eyesore!

Refresh Your Surfaces

There’s nothing like a deep clean to give a space new life and when it comes to your laundry, you can’t beat sparkling tiles and immaculate surfaces. If the thought of tackling the layer of washing powder, fabric softener, and soap scum that covers your laundry floor feels impossible, however, the Vileda Easy Wring & Clean Turbo Spin Mop is your new best friend to make you #FeelGreatAtHome. It even removes 99% of bacteria with just water*!

The mop has been smartly designed with a triangular mop head so you can easily reach corners and edges, and it also pivots, allowing for no-hassle cleaning under your laundry benches and around your washing machine and dryer. Best of all, the mop head is machine washable, and you can easily update and replace it with the Vileda refills each season – no need to purchase a brand new mop!

Simple Steps To Add Luxe To Your Laundry

Don’t Underestimate Scent

A beautiful laundry often brings up thoughts of sparkling surfaces, freshly washed clothing, and perhaps most importantly the crisp smell of washing powder. Unfortunately, the reality is that a laundry probably gets more use than most other rooms in the house, and, as a result, amidst the soapy freshness, there is the hint of unwashed socks and a less than clean washing machine threatening to fill the space. While your first step should be to clean your machine with an approved cleaner, including a scented diffuser in your space is a safe and easy way to maintain a beautiful smelling laundry all year round. Think warm, fresh fragrances like vanilla, linen, and orange to keep things sophisticated and luxe.

Keep It Covered

If you have the option to tuck your washing machine, dryer, and storage shelves away, it’s definitely one worth taking if you wanted to give your laundry a streamlined feel. For those who feel floor-to-ceiling cupboard doors would close in their laundry room, consider rearranging your space to stack unsightly items on top of each other, minimising the amount of shelving needing to be covered.

Add Finishing Touches

Whether it’s a plant, mirror, or statement piece of artwork, a laundry is one space where you can really experiment and have fun with interior accessories. Try to stick to a unifying theme when choosing accessories, and remember less really is more – a few stand-out pieces is all it takes to create a laundry space you will actually want to spend time in! A floating shelf is a great way to add space for styling that doesn’t impact the functionality of your laundry.

  • I love seeing all these ideas, but to put them into practice is not always possible. Adding baskets to put my towels in would mean less room in the cupboard. ????

    I do agree with the smell, once you have a fragrance in the house things always seems nice and fresh


  • I just did this in the corner of my laundry bench and it just brightened the place right up. Love walking into my laundry and when I feel like it needs freshening up I light the candle for a while in there.


  • We recently renovated our laundry and it was money well spent. Totally lifted the space!
    I just need to add a few little bits for styling purposes but already enjoy going in there so much more!


  • Great ideas thanks! My laundry doesn’t have much space but I recently removed a laundry basket & I had some shelves with hooks added so I’ve been able to add few pot plants & can also hang clothes to dry on the wet days that works really well now.


  • Lovely ideas but as for a few others here, just not options for me, my laundry room is a tiny room that is sink, washing machine, door. Already have movie posters framed on the sole wall, and the window has no sill for even the smallest plant. I know, Keanu Reeves! He could improve my laundry space by standing in it! lol!


  • Not much I can do with my laundry room. I live in an old mine house which we have renovated but the house is very small so my washing machine is in the garden shed. It works for me as if we did find room inside for the machine the whole house would shake which would put cracks in the wall joints. Our house is on wooden stumps so can’t really do anything else. These are some great ideas though. Very creative


  • Great tips!


  • I need to redo my laundry and I love these amazing tips


  • My laundry is literally a cupboard in the hallway so little hard to spice up but a fresh organisation would make it great


  • I wish to have a proper laundry not in the corridor.. maybe one day will be able to create proper one


  • I’ve added a couple of beach prints, some lovely little pots, a diffuser and I want to finish it off with a small indoor plant.


  • Good tips, especially since this is a much used space.


  • I once loved the laundry at our house, then we got two kittens and the kitty litter had to go somewhere :( It’s now not quite as pleasant.


  • Love this! I’ve never thought about it. A complete different way of looking at laundry


  • I feel like all these new articles of house refreshing tips are so good.
