Paint or sand and stain?

laurabennett1February 15, 2013
This is my laundry room and and wondering if painting would look best or if I should stain it? The hallway also has cabinets just like it and I would do the same thing to them of course. Ideas?

I would use a nice white. If you are using gray on the floor, the the BM Dove White would be a good choice. If you are keeping the blue walls that can be seen in the picture, a pale blue/gray would be nice for the walls.

I don't know what your decorating style is, but if it were mine, I would paint each door a different bright color and the background black to mimic a Mondrian painting. One needs cheer in a laundry room!

Great suggestion @yvonnecmartin but I am far too afraid of color!!
@Deborah Thanks for the Dove White idea, that seems a little more my style, walls look like a funny blue in the picture but its actually a beige/grey color which would look nice with white and some new hardware, thanks!

I would paint a nice crisp white color, for a clean fresh look. New hardware too! Good luck

I almost suggested BM Revere Pewter (which is a beige/gray) for the walls of the laundry room to go with the floor until I saw what looked to be blue in the picture. Have fun!

Please paint! I agree, different colors that are same weight and value. Kind of like these stairs: http://www.countryliving.com/cm/countryliving/images/4L/0611-teague-stairs-mdn.jpg

~Remove the doors completely and use storage baskets inside. Maybe leave the 2 above the washer/dryer and re-finish them.
~Paint the wall the doors close on white and the doors grey. Maybe add bullnose trim to the outside to make "frames" on the edge of the cabinets or in a few inches. Paint the trim white with inside grey or the entire thing white. (See photo)
~Could you replace all those doors with 3 tall ones that covered the top doors to the bottom? (instead of broken up as 6)

White paint like SW Bone China (old Martha Steward Color) then something fun on the walls like turquoise or Yellow.
