Decorating a room can be difficult. Whether you are a professional or a complete newbie, the process can be overwhelming with so many decisions to make.
Two areas that I often find myself getting stuck on the walls and the floor. It often takes me a while to make a decision on these areas simply because these areas take up so much space in the room. Getting them wrong can really impact the entire project.
Furthermore, the floor is quite literally the base of the project and all other parts depend on it.
One of the things that help me overcome the challenge of making difficult decisions is the use of mood boards.
Creating mood boards is one of my absolute favourite things to do when designing a room. It’s the first step of every project that I do and I wouldn’t recommend starting anything without creating a mood board.
A mood board doesn’t have to overly complicated. Depending on the complexities of the project, you can put a mood board together in a matter of minutes.
What makes a mood board great is the fact that it can help you to imagine how different colours and elements will look with each other.
There are so many different ways to make a mood board. You could choose to go the digital route and use a tool like Canva or even Pinterest to curate your ideas. You could also choose to create a physical mood board using magazine clippings or sample items. Either way, the idea is to create a visual representation of your project so that you have an idea of what the final product will look and feel like.
I’ve done both types of mood boards in the past. For my current laundry room project, I made the decision to make a physical mood board using items received from Carpet One.

They also offer a ton of free resources on their website to help you choose the flooring solution that works best for you.
I was recently sent a sample box with samples from The Trending Ten and was able to create a physical mood board using the items in the box. With the help of this mood board, I’ll be sharing with you a glimpse of what my laundry room will look like.
When I opened the box, I immediately gravitated towards the Bel Terra Concrete Look Style Tile in the colour power grey. I absolutely love the matte finish of this tile. It is sleek and modern and I believe it will look beautiful in our laundry room.
The second flooring option that I picked was the Enchanted Lake Laminate flooring in the colour creamy. This laminate flooring is a really beautiful colour that would go perfectly in any room.
My Plan For The Laundry Room
The laundry room is one room in the house that doesn’t get a lot of love and attention. We haven’t done much to it, and I felt it needed a bit of a refresh. Changing out the flooring and accessorizing with some cute pieces will go a long way to make the space feel more fresh and beautiful in line with the rest of the house.
Like many of the other spaces in my home, this room will have a neutral palette. I plan to incorporate some greenery into the colour scheme. With summer in full swing, I incorporated similar colours in my living room, dining room and kitchen and I love the way it looks.
