Laundry Room Budget Breakdown

Updated: Oct 5

I always talk about how I do all of my makeovers on a shoestring budget, but sometimes I'm sure you're wondering... what does that even mean? For me it meant that I was able to take our laundry room from this...

to this...

for less than $3,000. A shoestring budget may mean something different to you and that's ok. I have a friend that would spend $3,000 just for a luxury handbag and I also have a friend who would think $300 is a shoestring budget. For me, it was about using what we had (existing walls/cabinetry) and transforming the space without completely gutting it. And I have to say I'm so happy with the result.

I'm also going to give you complete transparency on what was gifted vs. what I spent my own money on. I've calculated both totals just so you can see what it would have cost vs. what it actually cost. It's only slightly different and any of the items that were gifted were things I was definitely already planning to purchase.


So where did all the budget go? Let's get into it!


cabinetry prep/painting- $150

new countertop remnant + labor- $300

hardware- $175

peel and stick wallpaper (gifted by WallPops)- $375

washer and dryer surround/shelf build- $30

floor paint/sealer- $30

brass locker hooks- $87

faucet- $150

roman shade- $65

tile (gifted by Wayfair)- $210

tiling supplies- $150

light fixture (gifted by Shades of Light)- $650

accessories- $300


Laundry Room Total- $2,672

my total minus the gifted items- $1,437
