3 DIY Laundry Room Makeover Ideas for a New Look
Do you have a room that you keep changing? This Laundry Room is on it’s 3rd Makeover in 6 years, guys.
It’s time to finally show you all my Laundry Room. It’s had some major changes since we moved in 6 years ago. So… if you need some inspiration and DIY Laundry Room Makeover Ideas, I have plenty. Most of them are very budget-friendly too. I hope these pictures and DIY’s help you design your dream Laundry Room. 🙂
Have a look at where this Laundry Room started when we moved in and the 3 makeovers I have given it, so far. But I have a confession, guys. I love the way this Laundry Room Makeover looks today. BUT I think I’ll love it just a little more if I paint the lower cabinets with that great Teal color I used on the recent little table makeover I shared with you. SO, that may be happening soon. LOL. I can’t stop myself in this room. UPDATE: See the full reveal for the Modern Farmhouse Teal Laundry Room Makeover now.
A quick look at the 4 looks this Laundry Room has had since we bought this house 6 years ago.

DIY Laundry Room Makeover Ideas – Before Photos
When we moved in the walls were a Faux Orange Finish, with beaten up 20 year-old white cabinets, white linoleum counters and backsplash, and orange and black tiles. It’s pretty similar to the before photos on our big Kitchen Makeover.
Here are the original cabinets in the Laundry Room. This is the spot next to the door to the garage. In this photo, I’ve removed the doors and drawers to get started cutting the cabinets into a DIY Mudroom Bench and Hall Tree style cabinet. You’ll get to see the result after a few more pictures. 🙂
DIY Laundry Room Makeover Ideas – The Last 2 Makeover Photos
Here’s my first attempt at a Laundry Room Makeover. I went with Dark Grey Cabinets. I also built my own wood counters with the extra wide 8′ long craft wood panels you can find at Lowe’s and Home Depot. I loved those stripes I painted on top. Wood counters are a cheap and easy solution for replacing linoleum. I also removed the old towel rod above the sink and replaced it with 2 new shelves and a towel rod. I added v-grove panel as a backsplash and framed that out with 1×2 Select Pine Lumber. You can see the DIY for v-grove paneling on my DIY Mudroom Bench post and in my Powder Room Makeover post.
During the kitchen remodel, I decided to lighten up the room and go for durable quartz counters to match the kitchen. You can see that the Powder Room door is black at this point.
I decided to get rid of the black door when I updated the Powder Room behind that door. I went with Behr’s Arid Landscape. It’s just a bit darker than the trim paint I use (Behr’s Polished Pearl). I like the contrast. What do you think? Should I paint all of my doors with this style? You can find the DIY for that easy DIY Wood Towel Hook here.
DIY Laundry Room Makeover Ideas – The Latest After Photos
You might have noticed, this is actually the second version of the DIY Laundry Table too. The first version had too much of a country vibe. I updated the look with a white top to match the trim in our house, Benjamin Moore Hale Navy paint, and Minwax’s Jacobean Stain. I use a large galvanized tray to organize our hand towels, keys, mail, and a bit of decor. I found this one at At Home. But Amazon has quite a few similar galvanized trays too.
I’m loving the darker wood, teal, and plants against those light upper cabinets. The upper cabinets are painted with Behr’s Sandstone Cove that I mixed into a chalk paint using my go to chalk paint recipe. The walls are also Sandstone Cove. The V-Grove Panel and trim I used as a backsplash is painted with Behr’s Polished Pearl. Be sure to get Latex paint for your white trim because oil based paints will yellow. The lower cabinets are Behr’s Squirrel.
This DIY Mudroom Bench and Hall Tree style storage were a huge improvement on this Laundry Room. We use this room as our main entrance to the house. Having shoe and coat storage and a place for the kids to sit while we put their little jackets and shoes on makes life so much easier.
This DIY Laundry Table over the washer and dryer is great for hiding the top of those machines and that ugly 10 inch gap that is behind them. Plus, it’s a great place to drop our keys and mail when we walk in. And look at all that amazing light this room gets. It’s actually the best room in our house for plants. 🙂
The cute Aqua Triangle hand towel, Teal and Grey Woven Rug, and the Round Teak Vase are all from Target.
So, I hope you found something you loved in one of these DIY Laundry Room Makeover Ideas. Most of these are super affordable, budget-friendly options. Have fun and let me know if you have any questions!

Stephanie, I love that you changed the hanging cupboards into white again. I feel like this makes the room feel a lot bigger. I wish we had laundry rooms here in Germany. If you have an apartment, nope, there is definitely not goint to be a laundry room included. If you happen to life in a house, there might be a space for it in the basement. But it's very bare and not very homely. Once I own a bigger space, I will most def make room for one, though ;-) After all you spend a lot of thimer there, right?

I hope you get that Laundry Room soon, Habiba. :) It does make life a bit easier and more enjoyable. We used to mostly have basement Laundry 'dungeons' in the US, when I was a kid. I remember dreading going down there. But then pretty Laundry Rooms on the main living floor became trendy. So, it seems like we all have them now. You can always stop by here and do laundry anytime. :)
