Deep Gray Laundry Room Shaker Cabinets
One of my favorite design features in our new home is our upstairs laundry room. It’s not just about the size of the space or the fancy washers and dryers – what makes me love this space are all the finishes and the fact that it is perfectly placed in our home. Our laundry room sits just off the master bedroom closet, which is just off the master bath. It also opens to our upstairs hallway so the girls can get their laundry done too. It’s so handy that I haven’t even finished our downstairs laundry room. Brilliant plan – thank you, architect!
Initially, I thought I wanted a clean, white laundry room with white cabinets, white quartz countertops, and a patterned ceramic tile floor. But, while I love that look and have done it in many of my new builds and house flips, I opted for deep gray laundry room shaker cabinets with brushed gold hardware. I did bring in my beloved white on the walls and Swiss White quartz countertops. I selected a ceramic floor tile that looks like stone which we set it in a herringbone pattern. I am a huge fan of working with inexpensive tile and arranging it in a pretty design. (This simple technique makes it look like a much more expensive finish.) Overall, the color palette feels more decadent. It might even make doing laundry will be more fun!
On my to-do list are adding a drying rod above the sink and I’m busy working on window coverings for this space but I guess everything is a work-in-progress so I will share again when those elements are complete.
If you are thinking of a laundry room update or building new, maybe deep gray cabinets could be your alternative to white! My deep gray cabinets were a custom color offered by our cabinet company but, my three favorites grays that resemble my cabinets are Benjamin Moore Amherst Gray, Steel Wool, and Shaker Gray. Cheers to loving your laundry space!
