6 Tile Ideas for Your Laundry Room

Did you know that the average American spends 67 hours a year doing laundry? Beautify your laundry room with tile to turn this inconvenient chore into a peaceful activity. Tile not only improves the aesthetics of your space, but it's durability and ease of cleaning makes it practical as well. In this blog we'll give you the inspiration you need to turn your laundry room into a haven of linen.

Make those hours of sorting and folding as enjoyable as possible with these 6 laundry room tile ideas: 

1. Laundry Room Niche

Niches are often considered for the bathroom, but they are useful in any small space! They're particularly helpful in the laundry room where you want mold-resistant, easy-to-clean shelving. Add a niche to create a perfectly organized space for your bottles and smaller products - maybe add a cute nik nak for a special touch.

2. Ombre Moroccan Fish Scales 

Add an ombre Moroccan Fish Scale statement wall to turn any laundry room from blah to beautiful. Feel like you're transported from your day-to-day chores to a beach with these scalloped tiles that mirror the shape of waves or fish scales. Go bright or neutral - we've created this look in a spectrum of colors and it all looks amazing.

3. Penny Round Floor Tile

Penny Rounds are sweet minimalist tile shapes that are perfect for a laundry room. They visually trick the eye into making a space look larger, which is often needed in cramped rooms with a washer and dryer. This look is mesmerizing when used as floor tile - especially if you create a contrast with the grout color to make the pennies pop! Tiling a floor with pennies will definitely make your laundry room stand out.

4. Bold Tile, Bold Decor

Brighten a dull space with bold tile colors. We offer over 100 glaze colors to pick from, giving you plenty of choices to match the colors to your personality. Choose your color based on decor you love, or add decor that perfectly matches your glaze color like in the example below. This laundry room tile idea is an easy way to get a cohesive and curated look!

5.  Dark Grout, Light Tile

While tile is easy to clean, grout can present the challenge of collecting stains  over time if not regularly cared for. If you know that your room may be messy, we recommend using dark grout so no blemishes show. This trick really makes life easier, and it looks beautiful!
