Beautiful French Country Laundry Room Makeover
Welcome! I am so glad that you are here. I always enjoy our time together. Don’t you just a good remodel reveal? The “before” and “after” pics? Me, too. I’m a good ole sucker for design makeovers. Today, I’m so excited to show you the Beautiful French Country Laundry Room Makeover. Wait until you see this magazine worthy makeover. Come on, I’ll show you.
The first time that I walked into our house, our realtor took us into the garage and then we entered the house through the laundry room. As soon as I stepped into the room, I knew that this house was going to be ours. It felt like home. It felt like us. A place where we wanted to make beautiful family memories in.
We really loved the size of the laundry room. We loved the windows. We loved that the laundry room connected us from the garage to the kitchen. But that was about it. The entire room needed to have a major renovation. As a designer, I could see what it could be and I couldn’t wait to get started. Today, it is a magazine worthy laundry room with wonderful French Country details.iv id=”fd-form-61855eb8db5bc2b4fb308994″>
My favorite thing about the whole renovation is the vintage brick floors, laid in a herringbone pattern. It just makes me giddy. It adds so much character and warmth to the room. I love the brick so much, that I continued it into the hallway, the powder bathroom, the kitchen, dining room and entryway. It is indestructible and it doesn’t show any dirt.
When I designed the cabinets, I wanted drawers wide enough for storing rolls of wrapping paper and all of the items that go with wrapping beautiful gifts. These drawers are one of my favorite parts of the whole room. I now use these drawers for all of my napkins rings, cloth napkins and small table decor.

Beings that we use the garage as the entry to our home for friends and family, I wanted to make the laundry room really beautiful. I wanted it to be warm and welcoming, even though it was a utility space. I wanted the room to make a statement, so I wanted the floor to ceiling cabinets to be painted black. With the cabinets black, I knew that the washer and dryer had to be black as well. I wanted them to blend into the cabinetry and not to stand out.
I do a lot of tablescapes-something for every season and holiday. It takes a lot of dishware, glassware, linens, silverware and more to create beautiful tables. So, I use the cabinets to store all of it. See my post, “How to Create a Butlers Pantry and Organize Your Dishware here.
Can you believe that I found two identical vintage chandeliers? And, the best part is that they only cost $60 each. Isn’t that amazing? My girlfriend and I were on a buying trip to stock our French Country Boutique. We started in Las Vegas with a large U-Haul truck. We were driving through all of the small towns from Las Vegas through California and back home to Oregon. The top thing on my list was to find two matching vintage chandeliers. These were in the very last antique store that we went to. I saw them through the window and knew that they were perfect. I waited for the store to open, but I found a sign on the door saying that they were permanently closed. I was NOT going home without these lights. So, we tracked down the owner of the store and she came and let us in. I was going home with my treasures.
A laundry room/Butler’s Pantry is not complete without a sink. This sink gets lots of use. I love the plantation shutters and toile curtains as well.
I adore loads of trim in a house. This house was built in 1989-which was a year not known for great character and style. Wood trim and wainscotting really even it some old world charm. I love having a bench in the laundry room, it gives us a place to sit down and put on our shoes before we head out the door. And, of course I just had to fit in some black and white buffalo check pillows in, too. Another one of my favorites.
