Renovating a tired, outdated laundry can provide much needed storage and create a stylish space that you enjoy using.   


Best of all, a laundry makeover can be quick and relatively inexpensive, as many of the following projects from our clever and creative community members illustrate.


Here are the Top 10 most popular laundry renos on Workshop by pageviews:

 Combined laundry and guest bathroomCombined laundry and guest bathroom

1. Bathroom, laundry and kitchen refresh by @RohanH 


To keep costs as low as possible, Rohan kept structural changes in his single fronted Victorian home to a minimum. He received lots of inspiration and advice from @ProjectPete  and @redracer01 before unveiling the end result.


2. My laundry reno by @ProjectPete 


This dramatic renovation included removal of the old laundry tub, a new splashback, lovely large timber benchtop using Tasmanian Oak project panels and overhead cabinets. The finished result is both functional and attractive.


3. Laundry wall makeover by @Nkbarfield


For less than $250, Workshop member @Nkbarfield  added industrial-look hanging clothes rails and fantastic floating cube storage to their laundry. You can get step-by-step instructions on how to build your own hanging rail from the Bunnings website.


4. $500 Bunnings laundry reno by @prettyliving 


Completed in just a day for $500Completed in just a day for $500

This very popular recent project with a budget-friendly pricetag was completed in just a day, transforming a basic laundry with a standard trough and no storage. The renovation included a new sink, cupboards, tiles and benchtop.


5. Affordable laundry makeover by @redracer01 


By utilising flat-pack cabinets and affordable timber benchtops, you can quickly and easily transform an old 1970s or 80s laundry. Red can show you how with his fantastic project visualisations using the Sketchup tool. 


6. Before and after laundry renovation by @Ajmod 


This laundry connects to a guest toilet so needed to double as a guest bathroom. Hiding the washing machine inside the cabinetry ensured a clean look.


7. Small laundry reno by @ordinary-home 


With a small, awkward space, creative solutions were needed for this laundry renovation such as hanging rail and a large benchtop for folding clothes. The attractive new design passed the ultimate test – a baby in cloth nappies.  


8. Laundry makeover – first time reno by @Gillgirl

Workshop community member @Gillgirl has lived in her house for over 25 years and took advantage of the COVID-19 lockdown period to tackle her first-ever renovation project. The professional end result should give inspiration and confidence to all first-time renovators.  


9. Laundry reno (Iso project) by @Jimi 


This fantastic laundry renovation project was completed for just $1300. After ripping out the old sink cupboard and wall tiles, new cupboards, subway tiles, benchtop and shelves were installed.

Even with a tiny amount of space you can have a functional and stylish laundry, as this fantastic example perfectly illustrates.
