Use Citrus Colors to Add Zing to Your Laundry Room

Blog Cabin 2014 is based in sunny, Winter Haven Florida, the heart of the state's fertile fruit growing region. With orange and lemon trees right on the property, citrus is the perfect inspiration for a fresh take on the laundry room color palette.

Quickly Identify Towels by Task

Two-toned towels in lime green and watery blue, helps keep any heavy duty cleaning supplies separate from simpler, chemical-free citrus wiping-up tasks. Look for microfiber towels, often found affordably in bulk in the automotive section of a big box store.

Neutral Cabinetry Balances Bright Colors

Chic open shelving in a Driftwood gray hue makes a modern statement, with clean lines and simple brushed chrome hardware accents.

Reuseable Dryer Sheet Alternatives

Lavender and lemon scented reuseable dryer sachets keep linens and laundry smelling fresh, and save on waste and chemicals from dryer sheets. Clean tennis balls can also be used in the dryer in lieu of dryer sheets for fluffy linens.

Don't Forget the Art

Dressing up the walls in your laundry room can give you something to look at while you're sorting socks. An often-ignored space for decor, framed vintage botanical prints of Italian citrus fruits make an elegant statement.

Window Washing Like a Pro

Store-bought window cleaning products tout the benefits of vinegar – you can tap into all that fingerprint cutting power at home by making your own. Combine equal parts water and rubbing alcohol and add three teaspoons of vinegar in a medium sized spray bottle and shake gently.

Label Your Laundry

Cheery lemon yellow laundry baskets have a permanent home in the cabinetry. Family members now know where their basket goes – offering the ability to put laundry away with ease.

Clean Up Your Act with Vinegar

Cut orange peels, infused in vinegar for two days, make up the base of this DIY citrus all-purpose cleaner. Add one cup of this infusion to one cup of warm water and pour into a spray bottle for a hardworking, natural cleaner.

Vintage Citrus Crate for Storage

A vintage wood toolbox makes a smart caddy for cleaning supplies. Simply paint the inside with semi-gloss paint or a thick clear coat to protect the wood from water.

Window Seat Storage

Using all the available storage in the space, this laundry room benefits from an under-the-window storage cabinet that doubles as a bench seat. An outdoor patio cushion can withstand anything this space can dish out in terms of dirt and grime in a cheery, washable lime green.
