Designing Upscale Laundry Rooms with Natural Stone

Designing Upscale Laundry Rooms with Natural Stone

Do you dream of an upscale laundry room with natural stone? You’re not alone. Laundry rooms don’t have to be boring, utilitarian rooms anymore! Natural stone surfaces aren’t just for the wealthy. Stone applications are finding their way into every indoor and outdoor space—yes, even laundry rooms.

Marble Granite World imports top-quality granite, marble, quartz and other stone. And our skilled craftsmen and state-of-the-art machinery expertly cut and polish each slab before professionally installing it in your home or office. 

Choosing the Right Natural Stone for Your Laundry Room

Since you won’t be entertaining in your laundry room, choosing stone on looks alone may not be your first consideration. So, it might be best to focus on function instead. Here’s why…

The laundry room is a place where lots of chemicals are stored and used: detergents, bleach, ammonia, and more. Some natural stones may not hold up well to accidental spills that are allowed to sit. So, natural stone surfaces such as quartz (Silestone, Caesarstone, Cambria, and many other brands) may be a good option to choose. These stones are available in a variety of colors and patterns to suit your taste. Samples are available in our showroom.

Creative Uses for Natural Stone in Your Laundry Room

When it comes to using natural stone in the laundry room, you’ll find lots of ideas online and on Pinterest. We encourage you to find some pictures that you like. Then meet with our designers to help bring your ideas to life.

Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Cap off your side-by-side, front-loading washer and dryer units with a natural stone surface. This will give you some work, storage or display space. Plus, complete the look with a waterfall edge that covers the exposed sides of your units as well.

Do you have a big laundry space? A small work island may be just the place to fold and store your laundry. And you can use the cabinetry below for open or hidden storage. If your laundry room is a little tighter, you may opt for a work surface along one wall.

Need to maximize storage space or add display space? Look up! Your wall may be the perfect spot for floating or wall-mounted shelving. Instead of wood shelves, you can opt for natural stone shelves to match the rest of your room.

Today’s homeowners are finding many creative uses for natural stone slabs and tiles in the laundry room.

  • Washer/dryer enclosure
  • Utility sink surround
  • Work surface
  • Laundry sorting/folding area
  • Flooring
  • Wall décor
  • Floating shelves
  • Wall-mounted shelves

Whether you have a first-floor, second-floor, or basement laundry room, natural stone is a great way to create an upscale look. Stone slabs such as granite, marble, travertine, and quartz bring life into a sometimes-forgotten-about space. Yes, most of your guests may never see this room. But that doesn’t mean you don’t get to enjoy the space.

Marble Granite World strives for excellence in both craftsmanship and customer service. How can we help your dream laundry room come to life?
