Budget Friendly Laundry Room Makeover

I have been wanting to create a stylish, yet functional and Budget Friendly Laundry Room Makeover ever since we moved in 16 years ago. With the help from Better Homes & Gardens sold exclusively at Walmart, I was able to do just that!

Any room makeover on a budget is my jam! I’d say it’s my specialty! See this budget friendly family room makeover I transformed for my girlfriend or my own living room makeover ideas on a budget.

As one of the BHG Live Better influencers, our challenge this month was to organize a much-needed space in our home. This was the kick in the pants to finally give my laundry room a makeover. Keep reading to see the before photos.

Budget Friendly Laundry Room Makeover

Our laundry room is on our top floor nestled next to our bedrooms, which makes it so nice when doing laundry. No hauling loads of laundry up or down the stairs, making it much more convenient… if laundry can be convenient. Truth be told, my husband does 99% of the laundry. He’s really efficient, whereas for me… I think there are way too many steps, I am bound to get hung up somewhere.

When he asked me to marry him, I said yes on 3 conditions. 1. He stays out of all decorating decisions. 2. He does all the laundry. 3. He manages our money. It’s worked out great for the past 21 years.

Laundry Room Before

Since moving in, I haven’t done ANYTHING to this room, which won’t shock anyone after looking at these before photos. 

It was a functional room, it got the job done. The cupboards needed purging and reorganizing. My Party Pantry needed to be restocked and organized. It was time to take control and make it more aesthetically appealing by creating a budget friendly laundry room makeover.

The old shoe rack the previous owners had placed and used as a drying rack was still there. It’s not a bad idea and It actually worked pretty well, if it hadn’t rusted. Our utility sink is stained with paint, dye and who knows what else. The walls and cupboards surrounding it are covered with paint splatters. It’s definitely a “working” room!

Not only was it ugly, it was SO dusty! I hadn’t ever wiped down the walls and hadn’t used a broom for at least 6 months.

Laundry Room After

Look how gorgeous it is now! With a little elbow grease, new wallpaper and products from BHG, I put together the best budget-friendly laundry room makeover ever!

Design Inspiration

The Lemon rug was my inspiration piece. Black and white laundry room. Farmhouse Makeover I fell in love with it the minute I saw it online. I already had the Black and White Buffalo Check peel and stick wallpaper and hadn’t planned on using it in the laundry room, but couldn’t help see how perfect it would be with the lemons! Lemon Print Rug | TodaysCreativeLife.comI may order another rug to make it look like a longer runner, or maybe for my kitchen.

Clothing Rack

I also knew I wanted to replace that hideous drying rack so you can just imagine my excitement when I came across the wall mounted one, I was sold! Every budget friendly laundry room makeover needs a way to air dry clothing when needed.

When not in use, it folds up flat to the wall. Laundry Room Makeover | TodaysCreativeLife.com

You can have it at an angle or completely horizontal.

And when you’re finished, just fold it back up. I love that it doesn’t take up much space in my tiny laundry room.

Daily Laundry Supplies

I corralled all our daily laundry supplies with a cute tray.

Laundry Room Storage & Organization

I decided to use more galvanized storage options for the cupboard. We’re storing light bulbs, candles, flashlights, extenstion cords etc… I like that they’re solid and hide all the items that look cluttered. I can add labels if wanted.

I went with the canvas lined baskets for the other cupboard. These store extra laundry and cleaning supplies.Black and White Laundry Room Makeover | TodaysCreativeLife.com

When I find my chalk, I can write on them if wanted. I like that the lining is easily removed and washable.

I was really surprised by the durability and linen texture and color of these rolling laundry baskets. Having removable multiple bins makes it easy to separate colors and easy washing.

They’re also big!


I added this wax warmer with a crisp linen scented wax just for fun. The black and white design goes nicely and acts as a nightlight if needed.

We have one drawer in the laundry room and it can become a catch-all junk drawer really quickly if not managed.

I grabbed a couple of the wooden drawer organizers for easy organizing. Black and White Laundry Room Makeover | TodaysCreativeLife.com

Hopefully, it will stay clean.
