You can find a number of great photos of attractive laundry rooms in the Home Decorating Forum Gallery.
Please feel free to post your completed laundry room pictures there too if you like. :)
We could not afford a massive overhaul of our 1978 fake-panelled bathroom but I needed space and storage for this tiny, narrow room. After painting the paneling pale green, I was lucky to find a complete utility sink at Home Depot and combined it with a set of Ikea cabinets with bins for laundry and recycling. They all fit on a run next to my stacked washer-dryer. To replace the wall-to-wall red-orange-green-gold carpeting (I'm serious), I laid the laminate floor myself and the only thing left to do is to remove the harvest gold modular bath-shower on the opposite wall. (You can see the ugly color in the mirror.) I am planning to install a soaking tub-shower with a white tile surround.
