Even though we spend plenty of time in there, laundry rooms don’t often get the attention they deserve. The good news is that it’s easy to change that! Tiling your laundry room, whether the walls or floors, not only adds water resistance to your work area, but is also a great way to add style to the room. Here are 25 excellent laundry room tile ideas to get you inspired.
1. Statement Contrast. We’re not sure which tile we like more in this laundry room: the small, pearl white subway tiles used in the backsplash or the large black ones on the floor. They are both excellent choices for the space and complement each other nicely.
2. Patterned Laundry Room Floor Tile. Your laundry room floor is a great place to use that funky tile you’ve been eyeing. Not only does it liven up your space, but it also helps cover up dirt and scuffs, which makes it perfect for laundry or mudroom.
3. DIY Pattern. Adding some patterned tile to your laundry room doesn’t need to be a major renovation. You can purchase tile paint and patterns at your local hardware store and simply revamp your existing tile.
4. A Pop of Color. This simple gray and white tile brings a subtle pop of color to this otherwise monotone laundry room. We like how it adds a little bit of character while still maintaining the room’s fresh and clean feel.
5. Textured Tile. Using stone tile is an excellent way to add texture to your laundry room’s design. Here, the homeowners have opted for a tile that matches their neutral color palette but adds interest with fun shapes and a natural stone feel.
6. Fun Laundry Room Tile. Color is probably the most crucial design choice in any room. Crisp blues help your space feel airy and clean, which is a great goal for a laundry room. Here, the brighter blues of the floor tile help accentuate the softer, more subtle blues in the cabinets and tie the room together.
7. Functional and Stylish. These ceramic tiles are a great example of how to merge style and function. Their rustic color and texture enhance the farmhouse feel of the laundry room while being an excellent camouflage for dust and stray bits of lint.
8. Beautiful Backsplash. If you are debating what to do with that empty space behind your laundry room sink, consider adding a tile backsplash. This is the perfect spot to add color or fun patterns to your laundry area.
9. Dark Walls. The floor isn’t the only surface in your laundry room that can benefit from the addition of tile. These dark wall tiles create a beautiful backdrop for the room’s cabinets and open shelving to shine.
10. Gray Subway Tile. Subway tile is not only a great way to give your laundry room a contemporary vibe, but it also makes cleanup a breeze. With a tile backsplash, you don’t need to worry about splattering mud or cleaning supplies on the wall because either way, it will wipe up like a dream.
11. Small Space Full of Style. Your laundry room doesn’t need a lot of square footage to be great. This homeowner has picked a bold, black hexagon tile that pairs perfectly with the moon wall decals and gives the small room a big character.
12. Guilty Pleasure. The ceramic tile you choose for your laundry room is a great place to incorporate that color you love but can’t quite find a place for in your other home decor. Here they have used a soft pink for their walls, but you could opt for a deep blue or even a vivid Mediterranean style.
13. Color Coordination. We can’t get enough of this design and the way the patterned tile on the floor matches both the laundry room wall tile and the cabinets’ colors. Further enhanced with a great selection of decor and shelving, it adds to the flow and unity of the space.
14. Mosaic Tile. At first, using a small tile for your laundry room’s floor might seem overwhelming. It is, after all, a lot of grouting. However, when properly installed, small tiles can make a room feel more spacious, which is excellent if you are working with a narrow or oddly shaped area.
15. So Many Options. From the gray herringbone flooring to the subway tile behind the shelves and the subtly floral backsplash, this homeowner has done an excellent job of piecing together different styles into a room that works! This is an excellent design option if you are on a budget, as you can often find lots of great tiles in small amounts on clearance at your local hardware store.
16. Statement Flooring. While modern farmhouse is often the trend we see in utility room decor, these designers have decided to go more modern, and we love it. The bold floor tiles tie in perfectly with the dark counter and window, while the wicker baskets bring just a touch of softness.
17. Double Duty. Tile flooring in your mudroom just makes sense. This is probably the most roughly used room in the house, and having a durable floor that can withstand muddy footprints and water damage is a must. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be pretty as well, like this lovely brick-style floor.
18. Classic for a Reason. Black and white checkered tile has been a tile design staple for decades, and for a good reason. This timeless tile lends itself to almost any design style and will stand the test of time. Here, the homeowners have flawlessly incorporated it with their contemporary cabinets and dark paned window.
19. Mint Tile Vibes. This laundry room feels like a whole new place thanks to some gorgeous tile and a new counter. Even though the walls were originally white, the room felt closed in and bland. The new blue subway tiles bring a breath of fresh air and spunk to their renovation.
20. Make It Moody. If your aesthetic isn’t a bright and chipper cottage, your laundry room shouldn’t be either. Make it a workspace you can enjoy, no matter your vibe. This homeowner has done a lovely job of building a moody room to remove stains with dark cabinets and shiny jade-colored tiles.
21. Extend Your Work Area. These homeowners have made the most of their marble counter by making it both functional and stylish. The dark stone matches perfectly with the patterns of the floor tiles, and extending it onto the front-load washer and dryer makes excellent use of often wasted square footage.
22. Playing with Lines. Instead of running everything in one direction, this designer has created visual interest by running the lines of wall tiles against those on the wood cabinets. The gentle palette keeps this choice from becoming chaotic or confused.
23. Creating Flow. Many folks know they can use accent walls to move the eye but forget they can achieve the same effect with floors. This herringbone tile immediately draws the eye down the room and towards the back door, creating flow and highlighting the view of the lush yard.
24. Multi-Purpose Mudroom. We love the functionality of this laundry room design and how the homeowners have left no wasted spaces. By extending their wall tile into a corner shower stall, they have built the perfect place to wash off muddy paws and children before they can track muck through the house.
25. Statement Grout. Grout is an essential part of the tiling process, but it is often overlooked as a design element. Grout comes in so many different colors and should be used to enhance your design choice. This laundry room’s look wouldn’t be nearly as impressive had the owner opted for a white grout instead of this beautiful gold.
Laundry and mud rooms are some of the hardest working rooms in the house, which is why a durable design choice like tile makes sense. Whether your taste runs toward traditional marble or subway tile, something funky and bold, or even tile that could pass as wood flooring, there isn’t a wrong choice. Any of them will transform the look of your laundry room and make your life easier when it’s time to clean up.
