I’m always inspired by the gorgeously, perfect laundry room makeovers I see all over Pinterest – the ones that are so nice you might actually enjoy doing laundry in them. Then I remember my own laundry room…in the basement. We live in an old house and the basement is the only location for our laundry room. Redoing our old basement isn’t something we’re interested in doing since we don’t know how much longer we’ll be in this house. Still, I’d love to for my laundry room to look a little less dreary, given how much time I spend there!
3 Easy Tips to Boost a Boring Laundry Room
Add in Color
Choose a colorful carpet or bold design to give your laundry room a boost and possibly cover up an unappealing floor. There’s no pretty hardwood or tile in my basement, so this navy, geometric carpet gives the area coverage and makes an instant change!
Choose a cheery window covering or one that gives the room a touch of design. Since my laundry room is blue, I went with a basic white roman shade. It makes the space look more finished and crisp.
Clutter makes any space look less appealing. Somehow, when you add in baskets and organize everything, the space looks so much more finished! I chose to make this SUPER easy white shelf for some decor and my laundry room necessities.
My husband wasn’t around this past week to help me with this DIY project, so the fact I was able to do it on my own shows how easy it is. Those of you that know me, know I don’t measure, cut or paint stuff.
To make this easy shelf, I picked up 2 brackets in the wood trim section of a home improvement store. I then chose a regular piece of 12 in. thick wood (with a thickness of about 1 1/4 inches) a bottle of white spray paint (with primer and finish built in) and I was ready to build a shelf.
Simply spray paint everything.
The hardest part was using my husband’s nail gun to attach the top of the shelf to each bracket. I used wood glue first to ensure a good hold. Hung it and done. Instant pretty shelf to dress up this drab laundry room.
This mini makeover can’t come at a better time. Baseball season is here and my son plays 3-4x per week between games and practices.
He gets absolutely filthy and I am constantly doing his uniform and practice equipment In addition to some new finishes to the laundry room – Wisk Deep Clean® OXI Complete® is my newest solution to laundry!
Don’t Just Wash It, Wisk It!
Wisk Deep Clean® OXI Complete® delivers the same powerful deep clean but with the added power of OXI to fight a full range of stains and safely whiten whites and brighten colors. It is safe for both standard and HE machines. The formula of Wisk Deep Clean® contains a patented blend of Micro-Cleaners® that seek out and attack the #1 soil issue in your laundry – hidden body oils and sweat that can get rapped deep inside the fiber of your clothes. Wisk Deep® goes beyond surface stains, getting deep inside the fabric to attack and help remove hidden body oils and sweat that some detergents (compared to the leading variant of the top three liquid value brand) can leave behind. (Be sure you follow the instructions on the bottle exactly)
In fact, in an average wash load, the ration of hidden body oils and sweat to visible stains is 20 to 1. And when you have boy playing baseball – you need that deep clean to keep up with your active kid!
Did you know that Wisk is turning 60? (1956-2016). With age comes experience – and Wisk is still the powerful great clean today that it has been for 60 years. It was the first liquid laundry detergent on the market, which is something I didn’t know. I do remember growing up with Wisk, since it was all my mom bought.Wisk brand has been a recognized leader in fighting stains starting with Ring Around the Collar®, the original “torture test.”
