Rustic Farmhouse Laundry Room Ideas

It’s laundry day! Doesn’t that sound exciting? Well, maybe not if you have a dreary dungeon basement laundry room like I have, but what about all those beautiful, rustic farmhouse laundry rooms in magazines and all over Pinterest?  Actually our laundry area isn’t so bad, but it certainly doesn’t have the charm of the rustic laundry rooms I am sharing here today for inspiration! If you are wanting to create the country rustic home  look in your home too, then the laundry room could be a good place to start. *This post contains affiliate links.


First of all, what is rustic country farmhouse style? Think of weathered woods, galvanized buckets, old wicker baskets, shiplap, planked or bead board walls, cozy textiles and neutral tones. Don’t forget a wood burning stove or an internal fireplace when imagining the perfect rustic home.

There are plenty of project ideas on my home improvement dream list, and I would love to have a beautiful new laundry room! Unfortunately that would require changing a lot of plumbing or building a new addition altogether. Nevertheless, I have realized that there are some easy ways to make the laundry area in our basement look nicer by cleaning it up, organizing it a little better and adding some rustic farmhouse laundry room accessories. Let’s take a look at some pretty farmhouse laundry rooms ideas.

This pretty French Country farmhouse laundry room had me swooning with the grain sack curtains  under the counter top which are used to hide the appliances, plumbing or any cleaning supplies. I also love the use of beadboard in a rustic farmhouse laundry room.

This beautiful and bright farmhouse laundry room by Twelve on Main has so many pretty rustic farmhouse touches. Of course the shiplap walls are a great choice along with the white tile floor. I also love the rustic farmhouse light! Farmhouse lights are so cute in laundry rooms! While neutrals are certainly on trend for farmhouse style, country blue and baby blue are still a popular accent colors for rustic country style decor. Paint the legs of an old table blue for a pop of color or use old blue bottles and mason jars to store small laundry room essentials such as safety pins.

Even if you can’t build a new laundry room or rearrange the one you have,  simply adding some cute, rustic accessories that have a vintage distressed look can make the laundry room a little more stylish and cheerful.

Concrete countertops are a great option for laundry rooms. You can DIY or hire a professional company like FraserCon, as they will already have the tools and know-how to form the concrete to your specifications.

Hardwood flooring is always a great choice for adding rustic farmhouse style to a laundry room, but tile and linoleum are always good choices too. If you have a concrete floor like me you can always paint it or stencil it to give it rustic farmhouse charm.

Dear Lillie

If you have a concrete floor like me or old, worn out tile you can always paint it or stencil it to give it rustic farmhouse or modern farmhouse charm. Stenciled floors have also gained popularity in kitchens recently.

    Visiting from A Fireman’s Wife. I like the idea of making your laundry room somewhere that is pleasing to the eye so that you actually want to spend time there.

      Hi Calleen! I think I sometimes get more overwhelmed by the basement mess than the actual laundry! I think if everything looked nice and clean it would definitely make laundry time more enjoyable. Thanks for visiting today!
