Period Flair Laundry Room: After

Utility rooms don't have to look utilitarian. Case in point: Chuck and Claudia Jepsen's light-filled laundry room on the second floor of their 1887 Queen Anne, in Stamford, Connecticut. The crumbling basement laundry that came with the house wasn't just undesirable, it was unusable. Plans to turn the space into a garage made relocating the washer and dryer a high priority.

Shown: Now a single room, it fits a washer and dryer, a sink, and storage cabinets, and it's filled with natural light.

Paint: Benjamin Moore's Iced Mint
Washer and dryer: LG
Green towels: Pottery Barn
