Just the right shade of orange or sienna could work. See it with similar floors below.

HI -- I have the same laundry pair -- aren't they great ! I am going to use Benjamin Moores "Amsterdam Blue " And a fiberfloor with the blue circles for fun with white cabines etc. And adding a few red accents . This might work for you !.

I know someone who recently painted their laundry room a mint/teal color and it looks fantastic! I am suggesting Seagrove 653 by Benjamin Moore. Also, it would look great with you flooring!

Mine is painted Benjamin Moore, Kentucky Haze, in the blue gray family and I love it.

Your Interior Focus
What color are the walls, floor and furnishings in the adjoining room? I teach clients and students to always bring home literally ALL of the swatches they love, then narrow down the choice to the swatches that look best with existing colors in that room. Next, narrow those options by taking the swatches into the adjoining room and find the one that goes best in that room. Now you will have created a beautiful flow throughout your home!

Good advice by Your Interior Focus. I like the idea of two-tone since you have the chair rail separating the wall. Darker color on bottom, white/cream for chair rail and baseboard, complementary lighter color on top. Maybe a dark gray on bottom and rusty/persimmon color on top.

Your photo reminded me of a Laundry Room just completed for a client, using Benjamin Moore gray-blues:

I'd go with a lighter gray and crisp white trim and accents. I also saw on Houzz that someone used a cookie jar as a holder for the powdered detergent. I loved the blue granules mixed in with the white powder. Keep it sparse and uncluttered and it will turn out quite well.

I agree, I would want to know what is happening in the adjoining kitchen or adjacent rooms. I have enjoyed using blackboard paint on a single wall, it adds fun to the space along with the colors you have chosen, it really depends on the family and if they have children or not, etc.

I like the 2 tone idea, and some of the colors suggested are great. Another thought would be to consider a print wallpaper! Yes, wallpaper is back and in a big bold way. Select something like gray and white. Chrysteen Braun, Aegean Designing Whims

Keep it light and bright and simple. I painted our laundry room a terra cotta color to warm it up, and now hate it. In smaller spaces, when you're sorting, washing, drying and folding laundry, it's nice to have it feel clean and fresh. No busy patterns or dark colors.

KIwi green from general paint with antique white or ivory trim color.
Or for another look how about wainscotting on the lower half of your walls painted white or the trim colors suggested and a kiwi green or taunty yellow from General paint.

You have wainscoting so I would do a two tone paint but in same shades. I would choose darker grey for lower to blend with the w/d, and very crisp and light silver and white in horizontal stripes for upper to enlarge the room. Or chevron wall decals or stencils. And paint the ceiling the very palest of blue to mimic sky and open up the room. Will look great. Good luck

Thank you everyone for your help. I have downloaded the BM color visualizer but the colors are not true on my computer. I am going to go with a bright white for the cabinets and trim and the "over-the-frontloaders" topper that I am going to make. My question now is how dark gray below the chair rail, a Benjamin Moore name if possible, and what lighter gray on top, again Benjamin Moore name if possible that will still work with the granite w/d and the floor. The picture I attached has the BM Metropolitan AF-690 on the top and BM Flint AF-560 on the bottom. I will get samples of these colors if they look to to you all, but I'm thinking you can see the colors better than I, so please make other suggestions for samples as well. Thanks again,

By the way, the adjoining room is the family room that is done in oak trim and navajo beige walls, very boring.
