So, I recently took on the exciting project of redecorating my laundry room, and let me tell you, it’s been an absolute blast! I’ve always been drawn to the warm, cozy vibes of farmhouse style decor, and I knew right away that’s the direction I wanted to go in for this space.
First off, I decided to go with a soft, neutral color palette to create that classic farmhouse feel. I painted the walls a lovely shade of light cream and added some rustic wooden accents to bring in that charming, natural element. It’s amazing how a simple coat of paint can completely transform a room!
Of course, no farmhouse-style room is complete without some vintage-inspired decor. I scoured antique shops and flea markets for some one-of-a-kind finds, like old mason jars, weathered wooden signs, and vintage metal baskets. These little touches really add character and personality to the space.
Pictures of other laundry rooms, like in the image below, really inspired how I wanted MY laundry room to look:
I also invested in some practical yet stylish storage solutions. Woven baskets, wire bins, and open shelving not only keep things organized but also add to the overall farmhouse aesthetic. It’s all about that perfect blend of form and function!
To tie everything together, I opted for some charming farmhouse-inspired textiles. A pretty accent runner rug over my wood floor, some wicker baskets, shelving and a few floral accent pieces really bring that cozy, lived-in feel to the room.
This laundry room makeover picture I saw on reddit gave me the inspo for the overall look I wanted in my laundry area:
Overall, the process of redecorating my laundry room in farmhouse style decor has been incredibly rewarding. It’s now a space that I actually enjoy spending time in, which is saying a lot for a laundry room! The warm, inviting atmosphere makes the chore of laundry a little more enjoyable, and I love how it complements the rest of my home’s decor.

Before you start redecorating your small laundry room, take a good look at the space you have available to work with.
Maybe you have an actual laundry ROOM or you just have a small laundry closet off the kitchen or in the basement. Make note of anything that could limit your options based on space available.
Check out these garage laundry nook ideas:
If you don’t have shelves or cabinets above / behind your washer and dryer, and you WANT them, take measurements to see what space you have to work with.
Personally, having cabinets over my washer and dryer has been WONDERFUL for extra storage space for not only detergent and laundry stuff, but also to store beach towels, other cleaning supplies, etc.
Laundry Room Layout
The way you set up your laundry room can make or break whether your laundry area is functional and organized or just a layout that doesn’t really help you day-to-day.
Organizing a small laundry room can be an extra challenging with such limited storage space – here’s more useful laundry room organization ideas that I found really helpful.

Farmhouse Laundry Counters
If there’s room in your washer/dryer area, provide a counter or even a small table for folding your laundry.
If there’s isn’t space in your laundry room for additional counter space, look into getting some sort of counter board that sits over your washer and dryer (and long as it won’t interfere with your use OF the washer and dryer, of course).
Something like this:

Farmhouse Laundry Room Paint Colors
The right farmhouse paint color can give your laundry room not only a fresh new look, but can also make it appear bigger.
You can even paint the cabinets in your laundry room (if you have them) – this page below has the most popular cabinet paint colors this year and tips for painting your cabinets.
Farmhouse style laundry room paint colors tend to be on the more neutral side.
For example, the brighter colors in these neutral farmhouse living room paint colors.
Just keep in mind, the darker the wall paint color, the SMALLER your laundry room will feel.
Rustic Laundry Decor Ideas
Here are some simple and cheap ways to give your small laundry room a rustic makeover on a budget:
- Use a rustic design throw rug
- Add rustic farmhouse laundry signs
- Add a rustic-style shelf between your washer and dryer
- Add shiplap accents to your wall
- Paint your cabinets white (or add white cabinets)
- Add baskets and other farmhouse style decor items
- Put a country farmhouse wreath on your cabinet, wall or door
- Mix in faux greenery
If all those ideas were put together into my PERFECT rustic farmhouse laundry room, it would look like this:
Laundry room rugs can not only add splashes of color that tie in with your farmhouse theme, but can also add comfort to an area where you might need to stand for extended periods of time.
Personally, I would never add actual CARPET to my laundry room, but I love having throw rugs and ‘runner’ rugs in front of my washer and dryer – and I find it best to choose the indoor/outdoor types of rugs since there is extra moisture in laundry rooms.
Farmhouse Laundry Signs
Farmhouse laundry room signs are also a fun and cheap way to decorate your farmhouse-style laundry room.
I’ve seen some really cute farmhouse laundry room signs here that all seem to be very affordable.
(note: if you’re renting your house or apartment, be sure to use command hooks so you don’t put nail holes in the wall and risk your security deposit)
Farmhouse Laundry Lighting
If your small laundry room has an actual window, well, consider yourself lucky.
Most small laundry rooms do NOT have a window so look into farmhouse style light fixtures to brighten the space and tie it in with your decorating theme.
Below are some great resources to find the perfect lighting for your farmhouse-style laundry room:
