Five years ago when we moved into our home, the laundry space was on the top of my priority list. Not everyone gets excited about a laundry room but considering how much laundry I do on a weekly basis (courtesy of my family of six), the laundry space was important to me. Every.single.day. I spend a large portion of my time tending to laundry or other house hold related functions.
When we found this house I got lucky! This room is a large space with a wall of cabinets, utility sink, and the washer / dryer. It also has plenty of space for dog dishes and other house hold necessities. However repairing the tiles when they have been damaged could be difficult, so you might be interested in using something similar to this tilelab grout sealer which might be able to help with your tiles fixes.
For the first several years the laundry room was kind of ho-hum. Well not anymore! Today I am partnering with Aspect Tiles to showcase a fun project we completed in a single afternoon. This easy project really transformed our space!
Here is the lovely before pictures. A full wall of top and bottom cabinets with great counter space.
To the left you can catch a glimpse of where the utility sink is located. The cabinets are beautifully made and of good quality. No way was Fitzy going to let me paint them. So we decided to work with what we have.
The first step was to apply a layer of Kilz. This is a great primer that prepares your surface for the tile work. One word though before you use any primer: make sure there isn’t any damp or mold there already. The primer (as well as the tiles) are mold resistant but any pre-existing mold is still going to be a problem. Get in some Virginia Beach Mold Remediation Experts if you’re not sure. Once the surface is ready, simply roll the Kilz on and let it dry.
Now watch how easy this is!!! It is like a big sticker. You simply peel the backing off and stick the tile to the wall.
We selected Weathered Quartz. We might also take a look at caesarstone moorland fog for the kitchen countertops as there have been quite a lot of reviews on how good these tones look in the kitchen. Quartz is a genuine, natural stone that nicely compliments the cabinets and flooring in our space. Speaking of flooring, I recently came across leveling concrete floor. I was pretty intrigued by the results. I might have to save those references for the future. Coming back to Quartz, this amazing product is also available in various glass and metal tiles. Honesty, selecting the tile was the hardest part of the entire project. So many beautiful choices.
Each tile covers one square foot so this project progressed very quickly.Click here if you are interested in seeing the other available product selections.
Fitzy used a strait edge to measure and mark where the cuts needed to be made.
Then he used a pair of wire cutters to trim each piece. This stuff was so easy to cut you could probably use any sharp scissors on hand.

Is it possible that a beautiful laundry space makes all that laundry more bearable? I think so!!!!
