Most Popular Before and After Room Makeovers – Modern Farmhouse Laundry Room

This Laundry Room has really come a long way, since we moved in. I converted half of it into a Mudroom (you’ll see that a few rooms below this one), given it a couple different color schemes and counter tops before finally loving the latest Colorful Modern Farmhouse Laundry Room Makeover.

When we moved in the walls were a Faux Orange Finish, with beaten up 20 year-old white cabinets, white linoleum counters and backsplash, and orange and black tiles.

I loved that blue wall color 6 years ago, but in the last year I fell out of love and really wanted to update this whole room. Too much beige and blue in this picture. Huh?

Look at this huge change I pulled off in about 6 weeks. I painted those walls, ceiling, and crown on scaffolding, guys. Kinda scary, but so worth it. This whole room is amazing now. I’m back in love. ๐Ÿ™‚ See the full Modern Farmhouse Living Room Makeover Reveal here.

So, so boring and outdated. That cabinet was even missing some molding at the top.

Look at this huge change! I built that vanity from an old dresser and painted the mirror with a Rust Patina Paint.

Most Popular Before and After Room Makeovers – Traditional White Kitchen with Island

In this before photo, I already switched the wall paint from orange to cream and replaced orange tile counter tops with granite, but the room was still a hot mess. That fluorescent light box needed to go, the layout felt cramped and lacked flow. This room needed a full remodel. I spent a few months planning a new layout for this room.

After flipping homes, building new, and years of remodeling; I have a list of 80+ things to think about and tips for building a new home or planning a remodel.
By moving the stove off the island and sliding it towards the center of the eat-in kitchen, the whole space feels bigger. We gained 3 seats at that island too. We also moved all of the huge appliances to the back of the kitchen so that the front could hold a coffee and drinks bar. Moving the large appliances away from the ends of the kitchen, keeps the room feeling more open.

Can you tell that most of these before photos were taken before I started blogging. Sorry. This section of cabinets in our Laundry Room is right next to the door we always come home through. So shoes and coats were piling up here. And those cabinets were basically empty. The Laundry Room had too much storage for us. So, converting this to a Mudroom made the most sense for us. You can see the details behind how I did it here. And, info behind the shoe storage here.

I completely changed and gutted those original cabinets. This Mudroom Makeover was even featured in Better Homes and Gardens this year. How cool is that?! It’s really hard to get a good picture of this area, because it’s a tight space and that window lets in a lot of harsh light. My pictures never do it justice. But you can get a good idea.
