Timeless Marble

Elegant may be the last word that comes to mind when you think of laundry rooms, but this setup from @ourfrenchcountryfarm may change that.

The Carrara-honed marble countertop goes with various palettes and aesthetics and adds a touch of sophistication to the space without being overly busy. Because marble is durable and easy to clean, it’s a practical (though pricey) choice for laundry rooms. There’s no denying how great it looks.

Rustic Wood

Want to add a cozy, farmhouse touch to your laundry room? Look no further than a simple natural wood countertop. This example from @dearlillie features a warm-toned wood that pairs beautifully with the dark cabinetry.

This setup also serves as a great reminder you don’t need a countertop to fill an entire wall to make an impact. A countertop over your washer and dryer adds plenty of surface space for folding and sorting.

The DIY blogger laid out everything she did in this laundry room renovation. She says she chose quartz because it’s low maintenance and holds up to heavy use.

Renter-Friendly Plywood

This genius laundry room setup from @justcallmehomegirl works for renters or anyone who wants that built-in look without committing to actually building anything in.

This home-stager-turned-DIYer built a single-piece countertop that looks like it was always supposed to be there. Painting the entire piece in Benjamin Moore’s Amherst Gray adds to the illusion.

Secret Hiding Space

Hate the look of all those utility hookups and cleaning supplies crowding your laundry room? Then you’ll love this wood countertop hack from @homevibesbymark.

This warm, homey countertop flips up to reveal plenty of space for all those unsightly items, making your laundry room look sleek and organized. Of course, it only works for front-loading machines. But what a smart solution!

Black and Bold

Want to make a statement in your laundry room? Consider black countertops like the ones in this gorgeous setup by @kassyrandazzo.

She used a bold yet practical black granite that contrasts beautifully with the neutral cabinetry and gold accents. It’s also a great example of how to utilize extra space between your washer and dryer. We love how she added an area for her laundry basket and a few drawers to keep supplies out of sight.

Epoxy Magic

If concrete isn’t quite your style, consider using epoxy to create a one-of-a-kind countertop, like this gorgeous example by @cierra.mercedes.

Mixing different epoxy colors, this blogger created a beautiful design on top of a piece of plywood. The result is a unique and durable countertop that adds a pop of personality to an otherwise basic laundry room. This DIY is definitely for those who like a little more flair in their home decor.

@ouroldhouse We found this awesome material from our favorite green building supplier Caragreen Products, and it comes in tons of colors! What a cool use of what would otherwise be trash! #paperstone #theforgehouse #pa #ouroldhouse #counters #countertop #recycled #sustainable #green #greenbuilding #caragreen #greenconstruction #nsf #fsc ♬ Chill Vibes – Tollan Kim

Sustainable Paperstone

For those looking for an eco-friendly option, PaperStone is quickly becoming a popular choice for countertops. Made from recycled paper and non-toxic resin, this material is incredibly durable and scratch-resistant. And because it’s paper, can be cut with simple woodworking tools.

You can install it as-is or sand and finish it for a more polished look. DIYer @ouroldhouse is a big fan of this sustainable material, and we can see why.
