Mix and match these versatile laundry room paint colors for a variety of looks -- just remember to consider your lighting. If your space lacks natural lighting, opt for colors with high light reflectance value (LRV). A color’s LRV measures the amount of visible and usable light that reflects from (or absorbs into) a painted surface. Simply put, LRV measures the percentage of light a paint color reflects.

|Sawgrass Cottage 0399
WHY IT WORKS: This hard-working hue is light enough to brighten your space, but bold enough to bring life to a dull or dated laundry room.
MIX IT UP: Finish the look by giving the rest of your laundry room a facelift, too. This contemporary color pops against deep espresso cabinets and bright white trim.
|Cape Hope 0496
WHY IT WORKS: This clean, cool blue gives an updated spin on a more traditional sky blue. With just a hint of green, it freshens any space — perfect for a laundry room.
MIX IT UP: Give your laundry room dimension and depth with wainscoting! Add wainscoting to the bottom half of your room, and paint it a cool off-white like White Kitten 0022. Then, use Cape Hope to add color to the top half the room for an updated, preppy beach feel.
|Buffed Plum 1317
WHY IT WORKS: Gray is gorgeous no matter the hue, but we’re partial to this chic color that has just a hint of purple.
MIX IT UP: Since this mid-range shade is a bit darker, opt for crisp white cabinetry and appliances for a chic-look that may just actually make you want to do a load of laundry!
|Luna Moon 0017
WHY IT WORKS: This delicate off-white creates a dreamy vibe. It’s light and bright, making it a stellar choice for small spaces or dimly-lit basement laundry rooms..
MIX IT UP: Whites aren’t wishy-washy! Painting your laundry room a clean neutral allows you to stick with neutrals or accentuate with color in creative ways — think fun fabrics for curtains or pretty, patterned rugs!
|Cape Cod Bay 0633
WHY IT WORKS: Navy is trending! We love this deep, muted shade that almost has a slate-gray tint.
MIX IT UP: Use as an accent wall behind your washer and dryer for a room that wows! For the rest of the walls, go up a few shades and paint your walls Star Mist 0630 or Polished Cotton 0629. This will give you a classic monochromatic take that echoes trendy ombre and graduated-gradient looks.
