So the day has finally come. After weeks of renovation, the new laundry room is ready, and I am so happy to share the result with you. As I wrote in the planning post, the room was from 1986 so it was about time it got a makeover. Not only to make it look better, but also to make it much more practical. Doing the laundry is not on top of my list of enjoyable things to do, so it is nice to have a welcoming room to go to : )
As you can see in the mood board the end result is very close to how I planned it to be. The only difference is actually the floor, which I planned to have in a concrete finish. Unfortunately, I did not manage to get the result that I was hoping for, and had to bring out the paintbrush to fix it. Still happy with the result and with the grey rug I got the contrast I was looking for.
My washing and tumble dryer also got replaced, and the new ASKO machines really fit well with the rest of the clean and Scandinavian design of the room. Maybe no surprise since I learned that ASKO is actually from Sweden and has won the Red Dot Design award in the category ”Best of the best product design”. For the environment-conscious readers out there, I would also like to point out two great functions in the washing machine called “Green Mode” which saves water and electricity and the “Allergy Mode” ensures that there is no detergent left in the clothes afterwards.
Keeping true to the Scandinavian style, the cabinets are the METOD cabinets with the EKESTAD fronts from IKEA. The laundry room is not the biggest, so I like how the oak fronts and the white ASKO appliances, walls and floor make the room light.
Lastly, the black details like the Tapwell faucet and the coat racks ( I painted these black myself ) add a nice contrast and spices up the room.
So what do you think? Are you looking to renovate the laundry room yourself?
