Traditional rooms are timeless; a tasteful design that will never go out of style. But traditional style often gets a bad rap for being dull. There are infinite ways to create a fun and traditional space, but the laundry room featured in this week’s mood board incorporates some of our favorite traditional trends.
Though this space is rather small, it has a big impact and the space is utilized well. The bright colors and bold floor design paired with the under-cabinet lighting and overhead lights make it a cheerful and fun room with the illusion of natural light. Polished Chrome paired with natural lighting (or in this case, what looks like natural lighting) is a great way to create the illusion of more space. The reflective surface of Polished Chrome acts as a mirror to the natural lighting, increasing the airy effect. Polished Chrome, which may seem inherently modern, is actually a perfect finish for a traditional space. Chrome is classic, and matches every design style.
The country sink used in this laundry room is the perfect utility sink. Not only is the sink durable and up to whatever task you may need it for in the laundry room, its white finish is the perfect neutral for a traditional space, especially one that is smaller in size. The crisp color makes the room seem larger and more open, a nice feature to have when space is minimal. This element is also incorporated into the countertop and cabinetry and allows the fun paint color and floor tiles to stand out. Incorporating fun tiles is a great way to give the room texture and dimension, while still playing into the traditional theme.
Spending time doing chores in a room as fun as this wouldn’t be so bad!
