Having all the cabinets in Black, is that even possible? Yes, it is. In designing, you need to think something extreme to get a unique design for your room. Even though the theme is black, it doesn’t mean you will have a dark room. It would be ridiculous.
I accentuate it with the bright floorings, countertops, ceilings, and backsplash. So, the room colors are in balance. It looks cool though.

Suggestion. As you can see in the picture, the laundry room is located in some part of the room, only in a limited space, not all of the room. Even though it’s open, it looks gorgeous though, you do not need to hide it away.
Soothing Green Laundry Room
If you are not interested with Blue, what about green? Everyone loves green, right? The color of green is the closest to nature. That’s one of the reasons I choose this color for a laundry room in the basement.
Well, it might be a little bit hard to see some nature from down there, you may need to have the artificial one. I guessed, Green walls would definitely represent the nature you can’t get in the basement. Combine it with white color makes it perfect.
Suggestion. You should pick the exact shades of green. Take a look at the photo above, that green color would be the perfect one for your white machines and cabinetry.

The vintage machines and rustic sink seem unmatched since it’s subterranean, so it’s no problem. I painted the cinder block walls to make the rustic power get decreased a little bit. There will be some pros and cons with this design.

- Painting the cinder block wall is the right thing to do
- The old vintage machines really belong to this room
- It looks a little bit weird and too much
