The 6 Best Laundry Room Paint Colors for Your Cabinets

Many people won’t give much thought into the laundry room paint color they choose for their cabinets. After all, it’s just a laundry room, right? 

Some laundry rooms have large windows and some have no windows, like mine. Some are very spacious while others are on a smaller scale. Some are on the main floor of a home and others are in the basement. No matter size or location, a laundry room should be a place you want to spend time, not dread going to.

From a design aspect, a laundry room is a place I like to have a little fun. When I do my laundry I want to feel like I’m in a space I love.

Considering the cabinets take up a petty large portion of the laundry room, I felt like it was a pretty important part of the design. This is why I put some thought into the color of the cabinetry.

Here are a few cabinet color options that will make any laundry room fun, beautiful, and hopefully inviting.

Our Favorite Paint Sprayer

Our favorite paint sprayer, hands down, is the Magnum X7 Cart Airless Paint Sprayer. This tool is a game-changer for anyone tackling large painting projects. What makes it stand out is its ability to deliver a flawless finish with incredible efficiency. Whether you’re painting walls, ceilings, or even exterior surfaces, the Magnum X7’s powerful motor and adjustable pressure control allow for precise application, reducing overspray and saving on paint.

The added mobility of the cart design makes it easy to move around, ensuring you can cover every inch of your space with ease. It’s perfect for both DIY enthusiasts and seasoned professionals, making every project feel less like a chore and more like a creative endeavor.

Sample Before You Paint

Before you invest money in gallons of paint, it’s extremely important that you sample several paint color options first. You can do it the old-fashioned way, which is time-consuming and messy. Or you can use Samplize to order large peel-and-stick paint samples with accurate color representation.

Farrow and Ball Pigeon

When we came across Pigeon by Farrow and Ball, I knew this was the one I had to have for my laundry room paint color. It met all the criteria I was looking for. I’ve read that it is a gray with blue undertones, but to me, it looks like a very desaturated light green. But it still adds just the right amount of color.

Our laundry room doesn’t have any windows, therefore I knew we had to go lighter in that room. Although, for most laundry rooms, I like seeing lighter shades anyway. This seems to give the room a calming feeling that it needs. We went even lighter with our walls and countertops which added some contrast with the cabinets.

Sherwin Williams Accessible Beige

Accessible Beige by Sherwin Williams is an oldy, but a goody. It has been around for many years, but it still is a neutral color that looks so good! With its many undertones, it is the perfect beige for laundry room cabinets. Beige is one of those colors that is beautiful, timeless, and will never get old. It has the beauty of neutralization but is unique and a little different than the plain white cabinet. It will add personality without going overboard.

Sherwin Williams Sea Salt

Another of our favorite laundry room paint colors is Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams. Sea Salt is a very calming color that will definitely be fun but yet still adds some warmth. It is a cool color but definitely has some blue-grey warm undertones. This color is one that will liven up your space and give it a beachy, clean look.

Benjamin Moore Smoke

Benjamin Moore Smoke is one of those colors that you probably will either love or hate. It is for sure a little bolder in some ways, but still has the calming, soothing effect of a lighter color. It is more of a subtle, sophisticated grey that will add to a contemporary feel. It looks great paired with taupe and beige colors.

Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter

So, I truly love our new laundry room, but if I were to design another anytime soon I would be using Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter for the cabinetry color. If you ask me, it is the perfect soft grey neutral color. Revere Pewter looks great paired with warmer tones, greenery, and even some brass accents. This laundry room designed by Studio Mcgee perfectly illustrates this cabinet color.

Benjamin Moore Vanilla Milkshake

If you are wanting to go with a very versatile white color for your laundry room paint color, Vanilla Milkshake by Benjamin Moore may be the one for you. It is a beautiful shade of white with just enough hint of grey and beige for warmth. Vanilla Milkshake would be a great cabinetry color for a smaller laundry room with no windows. Adding in some black handles or light fixtures would look amazing and add some great contrast with this color.

    Where did you purchase the tile for your laundry room? F&B Pigeon looks very different on your cabinet than on the sample board! I really like your entire laundry room – think I’m going to copy it!

    Is the backsplash tile or peel and stick wallpaper? Also, which paint finish did you choose for your cabinets? Thanks so much! I would love to copy both so any details would be much appreciated.

    Your cabinet’s paint color do not appear to be “pigeon” they appear to be “Sea salt”. Can you clarify?
