There will always be days when all those dirty clothes just have to wait, but what if when you did do the laundry, it could be just a bit better? Everyone knows that a happy, clean atmosphere is the way to go, so why not grab some popcorn and see how you can make doing your laundry less annoying.

Adding a little spice to your laundry room wall is a great way to give it some character and separate it from the rest. All you have to do is stick a wall decal anywhere on the wall, or if you’re more of a freestyle person, paint it yourself!
2. Add Some Fashionable Clothing Bins

Any door is perfectly fine for a laundry room, but a frosted glass one is extra special. If you have been neglecting that mound of laundry for a while and you have guests coming over, a frosted glass door is great for hiding the mess!
5. Washi Tape is Your Friend

Washers and dryers can be a bit bland sometimes, especially when they’re the classic white. Even though the color of your typical washer/dryer is classy and minimal, a little decoration never hurt anybody. If your laundry room is feeling basic, use some washi tape to spruce it up!
6. Paint Stripes on Your Wall
