How to Design a Classic Black & White Laundry Room

September 13, 2017

The laundry room is one of the most important rooms in a house, but we often overlook giving it a thoughtful design theme. By incorporating classic black and white styling in your laundry room, you can bring elegant sophistication to the place where you spend so much time doing household chores.

Black and white is a simple, uncluttered color combo that will always be in style. White gives the room an open and airy feel, while black brings attention to the focal points in the room. A creative balance between these contrasting colors will give your laundry room a fresh and clean appeal.

Check out these inspiration photos for ways to use classic black and white in your laundry room:
