Whether we admit it or not, the laundry area is often an overlooked part of the home. Since it is a spot for work, we often think that it doesn’t need to be beautiful as long as it’s practical and functional. We’re here to prove you otherwise—here is a roundup of five spaces that show how a utility room can be Instagram-worthy (even in the smallest of spaces), too.

If you need to share your laundry area with a roommate, consider stacking your machines on top of each other to maximize vertical space. If not, you can put them beside each other and place a plank of wood over it to create instant counter space! With these two options, you can still do heavy-duty washing without sacrificing floor space.

This laundry area may be short on space, but storage is maximized through the bins lined up on the side. Make sure to label each container to avoid mixing garments.


For a clean and crisp vibe, stick to white and hints of black. These options will keep your laundry area bright and airy while maintaining a clear area for working and doing other chores.

If you live in a small space and the idea of an exposed utility area doesn't live up to your standards, consider converting a closet into a compact workspace. Remember to keep it organized (or styled, if you want!) to make sure it doesn't ruin the rest of your decor when it's open for everyone to see.

If you don't want to go through the trouble of decorating a place that's meant to be a workspace, consider giving the room a surprise pop of color. While it may not have many accessories, it won't lack in personality because of the eye-catching paint job.
