Our Farmhouse Laundry Room – Tiling & Organzing

Laundry Room - Tiling and Organziation - apron sink

I spend a lot of time in my laundry room :).  The laundry room in our century old farmhouse was the first major DIY project we tackled.  It was in terrible shape and we quickly gutted and renovated it.  To see the whole laundry room renovation from the beginning, check that out here.

The one thing I had really wanted to do was add a tile backsplash to our laundry room sink but because we were in such a hurry to renovate other rooms I am just getting around to it now.  Adding tile to the sink backsplash was a great way to hide the bumpy old plaster walls and for only $11 worth of tile and less than 4 hours of work, it was totally worth it!

The first thing I did was paint the shelves around the sink a bright white semi gloss paint so they would match the simple white subway tile perfectly.

I mixed up the thin set and started buttering the back of each subway tile.

I staggered the tiles into a running bond pattern and added spacers in between each tile.  Because Jason had leveled the apron sink when we put it in I didn’t have too worry about the tiles not being level.

After the tiles were dry I added white grout to the spaces in between the tiles.  Jason cut a few boards of wood for me to add around the tile rather than having to cut some really small tiles.  I just love the look of the white subway tile next to our carrara marble tile counters.

The goose painting I found at Home Goods a few years ago still makes me smile :).

I was so happy with how the tile turned out I wanted to make the rest of the room a little prettier.  I had so much fun styling my laundry room shelves and organizing the cabinets.

I kept out my pretty cleaning supplies above our apron sink while I put the rest of my cleaning supplies in my laundry room cabinets.

Ball jars do a great job storing my clothespins as well as the spare change I find in my hubby’s pockets :).

I love the deep apron sink we added from Ikea.  It is the perfect spot to soak our dirty clothes.

We also added 4 simple chrome knobs to the laundry room cabinets which makes opening the cabinet doors a whole lot easier.

I organized the inside of all of our laundry cabinets too.

Our laundry room also stores our sewing supplies.  Jason made me two shelves to store my sewing machine and sewing books.  Under the shelves our ironing board fits perfectly.

A good friend gave me this wooden spool storage.  I love how pretty the spools of thread look on our wall.

I also added a hook to our laundry room pocket door.

It is the perfect spot to hang shirts and also our basket of wool dryer balls.

It is my belief that laundry rooms should be pretty since we spent so much time in them.

  1. Tara, I’ve done alot of DIYs, but tiling is not something I’ve tackled before. You’ve given me encouragement to try my hand it…it made such a difference in your laundry room

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hugs, Lynn

    1. I am so glad that you are encouraged to start tiling Lynn! It really isn’t as intimidating as it might seem. Thank you so much for your sweet comments and for stopping by to see my laundry room Lynn! Have a wonderful weekend and take care!

  2. I love how you have updated your laundry room. It is so bright and cheerful and with a lovely window to boot! I have a tiny, windowless laundry room. Why do builders do this?!

  3. I hate doing laundry, but if I had a laundry room like this, it would Mae me rethink not wanting to do laundry. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful space with us.

  4. Your laundry room is so bright and clean with the whites and the large window.

    I don’t have a scrub sink in my laundry room and we would have to jack hammer the concrete so I can forget that little “pipe” dream haha.

    Lovely job.
