Most laundry rooms generally are kept in light colours with white being the obvious favourite. White gives the room a look of freshness and cleanliness and is in many ways a no-brainer. However, since this room is often treated as an after-thought without too much consideration when it comes to colour and furniture, why not go a big step further and treat is as well as you would your living room?

A bold colour scheme like charcoal and pillar box red is a great way to bring a little life into it and – whilst you probably won’t entertain guests in there who might actually see it – a real statement. Yes, this colour combination is just a little bit 80’s, but it’s also a bold classic.
