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.

Rustic Farmhouse Laundry Rooms
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.
This laundry room has a very rustic farmhouse look with a DIY reclaimed barnwood countertop on top of the appliances, open shelving, and rustic industrial light. Barn style lights are perfect accessories for laundry rooms because the style is fitting and they are functional too. If you are looking for unique laundry room rustic lighting ideas there are more than 20,000 barn lights variation and sizes you can choose from Cocoweb.
A sliding barn door gives this laundry room extra rustic, modern farmhouse style along with the industrial light, apron farm sink, open shelving and wooden counter top.
Rustic farmhouse laundry rooms are great for incorporating a recycling area too for cardboard, glass and objects like plastic bottles .
Installing a farmhouse sink in the laundry room will add tons of rustic country style and will be useful at the same time. When shopping around, you might want to consider a fireclay sink. Check out http://www.annieandoak.com/blogs/design-style/farmhouse-sink-materials-an-in-depth-look-pros-and-cons you can see what the benefits are of fireclay farmhouse sinks. They are heavy, but 100% rust proof. If rutic farmhouse isn’t your style, these types of sinks even look gorgeous in contemporary city kitchens.
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.
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.
Organization is essential in the laundry room, and today there are so many cute baskets and bins to choose from to add rustic, farmhouse charm.
I love the use of bins and buckets in the laundry room to keep things tidy and organized too.
I have had a fun time gathering up these rustic farmhouse laundry room ideas, but now it’s time to face reality and actually go start on the laundry for the day!
This post did give me some ideas for organization, so maybe in between loads I might start cleaning up in the basement and moving things around to see what I can come up with. Who knows, a blog post might be in the works. We shall see!
