Fact: Your laundry room is hardly the most exciting space in your home to decorate, and it’s definitely not where you want to spend a lot of money on cute decor. But you (unfortunately) spend quite a bit of time in that tiny room, so you might as well treat yourself to a pretty space! Decorating a laundry room is all about cheery color schemes, chic and convenient storage and fresh-scented organization options. This week’s edition of Decor Resolutions will show you how to beautify your laundry room with pretty baskets, colorful towels and a few chic accessories that will make those mundane chores a little bit easier. Scroll on to see how we’d style the laundry room for the boho-chic lover, the minimalist and the preppy #laundryqueen.
HOW TO DECORATE A BOHO-CHIC LAUNDRY ROOM
The boho-chic look is all about colorful palettes and eclectic decor finds. A trendy mint green and dusty rose color palette is just the thing to amp up the style in any small space. Pick up a wooden tray and use it to corral detergents, softeners, dryer sheets and starch in pretty glass jars for easy access. Treat your laundry room just like any other space: Throw down a cool kilim rug and add texture via a mini air plant, metallic light fixture and color-dipped laundry baskets.

HOW TO DECORATE A MINIMAL LAUNDRY ROOM
You can’t go wrong with a minimal laundry room. Simple spaces like these always look good (and feel good too!). Step up your laundry room decor with a minimalist makeover: A tasseled rug, chic wall art and lots of natural wood bring the whole space together. Think candles are just for living spaces? Think again. Light up a scented candle and turn the laundry room into one you actually might want to spend time in while you fold clothes.

If pink and gold make your heart skip a beat, than a preppy laundry room might be in your future. Between a rosy-pink pendant light, color-dipped laundry baskets and a leopard rug, you’ll be swooning over your pretty space. Store laundry detergent and softener sheets in cute gold-topped glass canisters and keep a tube of lotion within easy reach to keep those hard-workin’ hands well moisturized.
