All About the Blues: My Top Blue Choices for Laundry Rooms

Choosing paint colors for a new home is so exciting! In fact, you have probably created Pinterest boards of rooms and colors you love, years before it is actually time to choose them. However, when it comes down to the wire, committing to one color is hard! Especially when you realize all those beautiful rooms you saved do not tell you what color they are!

Yesterday was D-Day for my cabinetry color decision! The kitchen, wet bar, and butler’s pantry were easy for me, and I’ll cover those in another blog. However, I struggled with my laundry room and mudroom. Because they share the same space, they will share a cabinetry color, so it had to be a color that would work for both. I knew I wanted to do something fresh and light but initially was torn between a light gray or a blue.

Since the rest of our home will feature a lot of whites, woods, and greys, I finally decided I wanted to utilize blue for my laundry room. To be completely honest, if I could change one room in the new build, it would be my laundry room. My husband is very easily annoyed by background noise, so he insisted we move the laundry room from where it was originally located near the master bedroom. While I am happy with where we moved it too, if I had it to do again, I would insist on adding to the footprint of the home and placing the laundry room on an exterior wall with a big window and more space. Don’t get me wrong; I’m incredibly grateful for the home I am building, but just telling you what I would do differently if we ever build again!

So, saying all of that to say, because of the closed of location and relatively small space we have for our laundry room, I decided a light, airy blue would make the room feel bigger and brighter. I worked very closely with my cabinetry designer, Hilary Denton of Vintage Forward Design to utilize every square inch of the room to maximize storage space and working area. I cannot wait to reveal our final design to you, but for now, let’s talk about some of the different blues I found for laundry rooms.
