Our Laundry Room Design for the New House

I seriously can’t believe we are only a few weeks out from moving into our new home. As I have mentioned several times, this is seriously one of my favorite parts of the building process, when everything is starting to come together. This is when all your visions seem to come to life.

I shared last week how a laundry room can be both beautiful and functional and now I want to share with you how we are attempting to make ours both. This is an important room to me because I am the one who spends the most time in the laundry room.

We have stayed true to our minimalist style throughout our new house but thought the laundry room might be a good place to add a little color. We love clean lines with a touch of rustic and a bit of elegance. So we’re continuing that into the laundry room.

Here is our mood board of what we will be including in our laundry room.


We knew from the start that we wanted to go a little different on the cabinetry. We chose Pigeon by Farrow and Ball. Pigeon is more of a blue-grey that almost looks green. It has a contemporary edge that we thought would look perfect in our laundry room. We went with a shaker style cabinet door that portrays a more clean, modern style.


We are going with a darker tile flooring called Honed Basalt by Jeffrey Court Tile. This will be laid in a herringbone pattern and is 4×16 in size. When looking for inspiration, we noticed the darker flooring paired with our cabinet color, Pigeon and it looked amazing. The contrast of the light and dark is such a great look. We feel that the herringbone pattern will add some detail and interest within the small room.


Considering our laundry doesn’t have a window, we wanted to make sure and have plenty of lighting. We will have not only a beautiful pendant light but also a wall sconce. The wall sconce was needed, but it also adds lots of character in the room.

Both lights will be aged brass which looks amazing with Farrow & Ball Pigeon.


We aren’t completely settled on a countertop at this time, but we know we will be going with some type of white quartz. We love quartz and its durability. I think a lighter color countertop is necessary with all the other components the room has going on. It needs to be very simple, clean, and not busy.


For our backsplash, we are using a marble mosaic tile called Cloudy Daze by Jeffrey Court. It has a light and airy fill that I think will create a nice contrast with the dark flooring.

Open Shelving

I felt like it would be very useful and of course stylish to add an open shelf going around the room. We’ll use a lighter wood stain that will bring in some warmth and will be great for extra storage. I’m thinking of adding in some baskets and maybe even some wall art along the shelf.


We’ll be using the same faucet as we will have in all of our bathrooms. It’s the Studio S Widespread Bathroom Faucet by American Standard. I love mixing metals, and it will tie in well with the basalt floor tile.

    Hi! Did you have your laundry cabinets custom made or did you purchase them from somewhere?

      We bought them from a local cabinet business, Absolute Granite and Cabinetry.
