My house, while cute, has a lot of potential. We’ve revamped the outside and worked a little on the inside, but now it’s time to start the bigger projects. Originally our first room to get an overhaul was supposed to be the kitchen, but my husband texted me the other day asking me what I thought about adding cabinets to our laundry room. I have been wanting to do that for a long time, so I said sure!
My brother-in-law is a civil engineer who spends a lot of time designing things on a computer program. He was the one who helped us create the plans for our patio project. Anyhow, he came over the other weekend, took a bunch of measurements, and drafted a couple laundry room plans for us. Then, he and Jeff headed to a cabinet store to get more ideas.
Today, I believe the work is going to get started. We are basically revamping the entire room. Here’s what it looks like now:

So my question is…what color should I paint the walls? Do I go with a neutral color like Oat Cake?
What about a teal like Mermaid Treasure or Gem Turquoise?
I honestly have no clue what I’m going to do or what will look good. What do you think? What color is your laundry room? Oh, and Supermom, what brand of paint is your favorite? I’m always up for suggestions.
