1. Black and White and Clean All Over

No need to separate the lights from the darks, even a small laundry space is made formal and charming with black-and-white tile. The simple color scheme keeps this laundry room from looking too busy, but the fun pattern of the Annie Selke Aylin Black adds interest to this small space.

6. Marvelous Marble Looks

Your laundry floor probably withstands a lot of traffic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create a luxurious space. Marble-look tile combines the elegance of marble with the durability and easy maintenance of porcelain. This traditional-style laundry room pairs stylish black-and-white Marble Star floor tile with taupe cabinets for a space that feels both elevated and relaxed.

This bright laundry space makes for cheerful chores. We love how Molly Howe Design paired pale blue cabinets with the Artisan Cardiff patterned floor tile. The color invokes all the serotonin-inducing goodness of a bright sunny day, for a warm and fresh space.

8. Chic Tile Patterns

This bright galley laundry room is a trendy hangout space (as evidenced by its very cool canine regular). The Annie Selke Aylin Blue patterned floor tile adds interest to this otherwise neutral space. And we love the dog portraits above the window! For more textile-inspired tiles, shop our exclusive Annie Selke collection.

9. Sleek Slate

Natural stone features unique variations between pieces making this a one-of-a-kind design trend that has been around for literally ages. With colors ranging from black to rust, slate tile is popular for its rustic look and natural surface variation. The Adoni Black tile shown here has a natural grey tone that elevates this laundry room while the colored veining adds a sense of movement that softens the space.

The textures and mix of warm and cool colors in this tile create a space that’s as hip as it is inviting.
